In the summer with the top and windows off,it is easy to get in an out of,i dont think
it changes the looks of the car to much,it doesnt give you the cramped feeling caused by the two piece window system.if your tall its a good option.check out the pics an you will see the top and windows off,you can see also how the air ride looks.

Hello everyone.
I'm still lurking about the kit boards, and I've been running around the local exotic car scene. Which around here is quite something. I've seen just about everything, a 350 GT to the Mura, and endless Merci's, Gallardo's, a couple of Aventador's(One of the owners has had his over a month, he is having the new production model blues).
But I've only seen one Countach. I got a few words with the owner and asked him if I would fit. When he was answering my question, I realized I was looking at him straight in the face and we had the same proportions. He said he is 6'-3", and when you are in the car you really could care less about comfort. Because your driving a Countach.

One other thing his car is what I want to recreate. An LP5000s even the color(white on white). I'm afraid I've only seen this car once(maybe twice but over 20 years ago doesn't count).

I'm still not going to take the plunge for a while.

John, I'm amazed with your work. I think your Countach has more metal than the original.

I do have another question, has anybody replicated the original LP500?

How serviceable is the engine(BMW v12) in the Countach body?
Are there some things that can't be accessed easily?

Not to easy to work on, but since your tall it will help.

hi Flyhi, You might find this link useful Murcie-me used a Linear actuator after having a air lift, this is the way i will go also, LA 's are very small and with his quick drawing very easy to fit , do read the whole post some good info here.
