Lamborghini Countach


The finest cars in the world generally share a few things in common. They are handmade, complex, and very valuable. This in turn demands very particular care which stems from a complete understanding and intuition as well as a material and mechanical empathy. The ability hand fabricate new parts and to restore tired old parts is a must. Casey Putsch managed the mechanical restoration of this unique 1982 Lamborghini Countach. This is the actual car that served as the Geneva show car and fuel injection prototype for Lamborghini. In the restoration, the car was reunited with its original side draft Weber carburetors that were untouched since they were removed in 1982. To make the car run perfectly required the knowledge of how fuel has changed since that time and the ability to painstakingly size and drill the tiny jet orifices to suit the cars needs as detected by the original computer; the seat of one’s pants. This is needed to achieve perfect air fuel mixture and drivability under civil or demanding driving in this iconic car which has effectively time traveled to the present day and must make use of our modern fuels. Beyond Lamborghini, Putsch has experience with the world’s finest car marques both vintage and modern including Ferrari, Porsche, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Lotus, Bentley, and even Morgan.
