Wow, I still remember glancing at this issue of Road&Track at the bookstore back in the 80's; I was disappointed back then that the Countach was slower than the BB.
Looking at the performance numbers now, I'm amused that my humble G37 sedan can keep up with both cars.
I like the comment about how "no successors are planned"
When clearly the Testarossa/512TR was a successor to the boxer, and the Countach spawned a never-ending chain of mid-engined V12 atomic death wedges up to the current Aventador.
It would be nice to see an MR Flat-12 Ferrari road car again though.
This is one of my favorite R&T magazine covers.
Looking around the web, I could make a few bucks selling some of my old car magazines.
My neighbor has a couple of these in his basement. They are fresh too. Only a few years old with full thread / never mounted.

I'm impressed that there are still articles in good enough shape to scan. All mine ended up having the pages stuck together.... for some reason.....

I did sell about $300 worth of magazines but wouldn't do it again. Running to the post office, answering emails, listing the issues, etc, etc, just takes up too much time for the $5 return on each one.
