Previously on the TorqueHunting Journey…
A couple of weeks ago I joined the man himself Dave Blackers to shoot one of the most iconic cars of the 80s, The 1990 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary
Something you’ll never wanna miss in your petrolhead portfolio. I literally dropped everything I was doing at that time and rushed to get a couple of shots before the car was transported back to the Crossley&Webb showroom.
If you’re a petrol head or just like cars I would highly recommend you visit their showroom or even browse through their websites, they have the best most unique, and rare stuff you’ll ever see. Like this 1990 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary.
