Launched in 1970, the Lamborghini Countach looked very brave for it’s time. Its angular shape has inspired many supercar designers. This car became huge popular. However, there was a time in the late 90s when a Lamborghini Countach could be bought for less than $ 100,000, which is incredibly cheap for that car.

Today the Countach is worth over $ 300,000 and the early LP400 limited edition models are over a million dollars.
