This is all out of a Lamborghini Countach book I have. It doesn't say they were the first, but I am thinking that they were.

We may have mixed info. But thats ok cause you got the designer right and you didn't say the obvious which would have been "Lambo doors, Lamborghini Countach".
According to Wiki you got the name of the car but the manufacture was Alfa Romeo Carabo Concept: http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/car/2...o-Concept.html Be sure to check out the images because it sure was a wicked looking thing!

Wiki calls these doors: Scissor doors, beetle-wing doors, jack-knife doors, and switchblade doors. Check it out, a very interesting read:

Brian you now have the floor!
