Subzero

Tons of character and drama, first supercar to make such a statement, awesome!
This car has more balls than 90% in the subzero section.

This+the Miura+Diablo are both sub zero. It went a bit downhill from there, the latestones are uncool in my books. Anyways, brave styling, it had much more presence than the Ferrari rival, and it had a cool name...Countach

cool for the LP400, the shape is so pure and beautiful
seriously uncool for the later edition, especially the 25th anniversary one, all the add on's are grotesque

I gave SZ for LP400. Later ones not great.
Same as Miura, but different reasons. When have you ever seen one on the road and not gone "Wow!"
Truly iconic.

This car is so unique and extravagant it is simply in a category of it's own ! Watch the black Countach in the movie "the cannonball run" and hear that engine sound: : Wow ! Life is good ! Subzero for the LP400 & LP400S but seriously uncool for the 25th anniversary edition.

Subzero ONLY for the first model LP400.

The later ones just had unnecessary body cladding.
