Lamborghini Countach

It might not be a tennis player adjusting her behind, but the Lamborghini Countach has been crowned the all-time favourite pin-up poster car among followers of The British Motor Show.

The striking Marcello Gandini masterpiece was the most popular poster car of the show’s Facebook followers, closely pursued by the Ferrari Testarossa and Porsche 959 – and who (of a certain age) doesn’t remember flicking through them on the rails in the poster shops?

“Of course, this was just a bit of fun, but it seems that around one in five car fans have had a Countach Blu-Tacked above their bed, and it’s that love of cars that really drives the passion behind The British Motor Show,” said The British Motor Show CEO, Andy Entwistle.

The organisers of The British Motor Show (August 19-22) say it promises to be the brightest, most engaging and most interactive automotive event of 2021, offering terrific value at just £18.50 a ticket, or £37 for a family of four.
