In 1985, Lamborghini released a limited version of the Countach. This special edition included a few changes to the body to account for the redesigned and upgraded engine, the addition of four valves per cylinder-quattrovalvole in Italian, gave birth to its name the "Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole" or "5000 QV" for short. One Drop took inspiration from this and made changes with the approval of Sonny Patrick, designer of the original Küntosh and created the Küntosh 5000QV.
From afar, the changes aren't as noticeable without the trained eye of a previous Küntosh rider. There's a subtle groove driving along the rim as it meets up with the profile of the catch zone. It's a little more spacious around the floor of the cup surrounding the Side Effect area. More importantly, the Küntosh 5000QV features a 7075 aluminum alloy body. It's a more dense and heavy alloy than the 6061 aluminum used on the original. The resulting weight of the redesign is lighter on the scales, but this number doesn't really mean much by itself on this screen you're looking at. During play, you'll find the that the 5000QV has more of commanding spin than it's older brother. Your handling will improve only if you spend the time to practice. Taking those sharp corners will be a breeze in no time; accelerate at a moments notice. And when you finally have it parked after hours of burning rubber, admire it's beauty and run your hands across the bead blasted finish.
The soul of the original Küntosh still resonates within the 5000QV, it's just going to have a little more horsepower.
