It was to accept been accepted by the archetypal cardinal only, but the news goes that, back Gandini's bang-up Nuccio Bertone saw the aboriginal car wheeled out of the workshops, he exclaimed 'Countach', a bounded Piedmontese announcement of admiration for which there is no accurate translation, and a fable was born.
