It looked sexy in 1971 and still does today, but practicality was not high on Lamborghini's list when it unveiled the Countach.

The Countach is a car that is hard to get in and out of and the windows open only a few inches, but it still remains a car that defined the early 70s with is sharp lines and super-low profile.

There was a time when posters of the Countach adorned many a schoolboy's bedroom wall alongside actress Farrah Fawcett-Major and even today - 41 years after its launch - it remains an attention-grabber.

The net result many schoolboys of the time grew up with childhood dreams of one-day owning the iconic sports car.

For American James Chen, owner of Axis Sports Touring in California, that dream has came true recently.

Chen was interviewed by website Petrolicious recently and the result is great video clip of the Countach along with its fabulous exhaust sound of its V12 engine interspersed with comments from the proud new owner.
