    I'm organising a Countach only road trip from the UK to the factory for the Summer 2023 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Lamborghini. Its relatively early days in the planning but we already have 20 interested UK Countach owners. More details will be forthcoming during January. We have a Whatsapp group of any Countach owners interested in making the trip. Please message me if interested. It could be the largest gathering of Countach's there has ever been!

    Just an update. As the big date moves ever closer. Jon, along with Marcel have done a sterling job. We are up to 33, yes! 33 Countach's in attendance. With many friends joining from all over Europe and beyond.

    This should be one amazing experience. Taking in many sites and visits. You can tell I'm excited!

    T - minus 3 days until the "off"
    • Hotels booked
    • Events booked
    • Route planned
    • Driving vignette's, badges and e-toll's procured.
    • Mandatory legal items obtained, hi-vis vests, warning triangles and others (Window air scoops very popular Joe!)
    • Car's checked although one chap's clutch went and it's being replaced as we speak, last min drama!
    Think we have 30+ cars although some join later on, some leave earlier on etc. But wow, will be a sight and sound for sure.

    Jon and Amber have done an amazing job in organisation of this trip.

    The hardest part will be deciding what to pack in the small space of the boot / trunk. Especially as I'm taking the wife with me, outfit change every 10 mins if she could :eek:

    Of course, we'll be pumping and dumping pictures all over the place including here.

    Lets be 100%, there was 1 proper Countach, a 5000s and the new Aventador parts bin special which is a homage to the original Countach :D

    Hi all, came home driving from Italy to Holland again yesterday....mission completed!
    We managed to get 32 Countachs in total, really amazing.
    Like Rob said, some joined later on, some left earlier on, two got stranded along the way etc.
    This was the ultimate Countach dream trip!

    An amazing time and we are blessed that we were able to join and take part in this event. Was fantastic to take Daisy back to her place of birth. Great locations, hotels, driving through Europe and wonderful people. We loved it!

    Couple of taster pictures, I suspect a lot more will be coming.

    I'm not sure who this two people are? supposed to be someone pretty well known :D
