In real life the original Lamborghini Countach LP400 is a highly sought after model, being the small bodywork model that hasn't been cluttered with massive wheel arch extensions and wings.
So if you are collecting Lamborghini scale cars a decent model of this early Countach will deserve it's place among them, especially this very nice Kyosho model.
If you take a look at the earlier Kyosho 1/43 models like the Diablo GT, they feature an opening engine cover, but for this Countach LP400 model they went several steps further.
This 2008 model actually has opening doors, hood, engine cover and luggage cover ... even the pop up headlights function, I personally haven't seen this on many 1/43 scale models, and especially not for the price they are asking for it.
If you take a look at the nice black box it actually says Kyosho, designed with the help of MR, now we all know MR as being one of the best makes of model cars out there, but they are in a totally different pricing bracket, this Kyosho is relatively cheap compared to it's amazing detailing.
Do note that it also exists in Blue, Orange and a special edition bright green, the latter however is a bit more expensive than the three regular colors.
