The hottest car in Milan back in 1977 was a purple Lamborghini Countach LP400 Periscopico, or at least it was according to this short film. It comes to us via , and honestly, it's my new favorite heist movie.

A man in a truly absurd fur coat has been contracted to steal the Countach for a man with Emerson Fittipaldi-esque sideburns, while an undercover cop driving an Alfa Romeo Giulia is on his tail. After picking up a friend at the club, the thief takes off on a Honda CB750, with the Alfa following close behind.

The two on the bike manage to lose the cop, break into the garage and make off with the Lamborghini, while the car's caretaker makes chase in a Monteverdi. Never heard of a Monteverdi before? It's a Swiss luxury four-door from the 1970s, and it's about as obscure as cars get.

The cop in the Alfa joins the chase through the nighttime streets of Milan, but neither can keep up with the Countach. The man hands over the keys to the Lamborghini, and presumably, takes off with a ton of lira in hand.

It's as goofy and fun as Kidston's 2017 film, which starred Valentino Balboni and RUF test driver Stefan Roser, and a bunch of killer cars. This one desperately makes us want a Countach, and a pair of Persols to wear while driving it at night.
