Lamborghini Designer:

Incredible designer Marcello Gandini... left Bertone in 1979 to from his own design company.
Designed the Muira, the Countach, and the Diablo.

Wow. Thats a legacy only few in the auto history of design can come close to.
The father and son Giugairo's, Harvey Earl, Virgil Exner, Dick Teague.

The Countach, earliest example I know of that had those cool scissor doors, came about from Gandini's earlier Alfa Romeo based Bertone Carabo (scarab beetle) which appeared in the 1968 Paris Motor Show.
