Throwback Thursday: 60 Minutes Visits Lamborghini Circa 1987

“A more elegant weapon from a civilized age” would seem to appropriate for this. In April of 1987, CBS’s Morely Safer headed to Sant’Agata to visit the Lamborghini factory, get a tour and go for a ride in the Countach with the legend Valentino Balboni.

A few highlights to look forward to. Ferruccio Lamborghini himself. The SOUND of the V12. Balboni overtaking a car, who is overtaking a truck on a two-lane road. Daniella Adetto describing a Countach and how colors give it different personalities, and the legendary David E. Davis Jr. There are a few more as well, but watch it and share your favorite highlights in the comments.
