The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance sometimes gets an unfair rap for not embracing younger collectors’ interests. That might have been true in the distant past, but in the last few years the concours committee has responded with special classes such as hot rods, motorcycles, a Japanese car display (on Hay Hill), and this year, the Lamborghini Countach.
The Countach class was most significant in that of all the cars built in the 1970s and ‘80s, when the Countach was the hero car for almost everyone who grew up in that era, with posters of this epic car decorating millions of teenager’s walls.
The class for these iconic cars offered everything that a fan of these cars could want, with the Countach represented by the earliest pre-production prototype to the very last Countach built, and with every model in between.
Lamborghini also used the Monterey Car Week and the 50th anniversary of its supercar to unveil a brand new version of the Countach.
Kudos to Sandra Button and her concours team for its willingness to expand the range of vehicles on the show field. We can’t wait to see what surprises are in store for the 2022 event next summer.
