When in Geneva we first saw the Centenario, half of our office has not been positively impressed, perhaps also because of the amount of other proposals admired at the Swiss fair.

The Countach was first unveiled at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show as the Miura’s replacement, engineered by Giampaolo Dallara and breathtakingly styled by Marcello Gandini of Bertone fame. For a complicated, hand-built car, the Countach delivered all the reliable high performance that its swooping looks promised. In 1982, a 4.75-liter 375 bhp V12 was shoe-horned … [Read more…]

The launch of the Lamborghini Miura at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show was the decade’s automotive sensation.

Despite being a devil in disguise (well, in Spanish then) it wasn’t necessary to sell one’s soul to get a Lambo Diablo — just greeting the model launch in 1990 with a briefcase containing around $250,000 would do the trick.

Perhaps the reason was a persistent rumour that this was the fastest production car ever, or maybe it … [Read more…]
