1987 Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole


Few would deny that Lamborghini’s Countach is the quintessential supercar. It was built by a talented and passionate team of designers and engineers with the purpose of being the most extrovert and outrageous car available for the street. As a replacement for the fabulous Miura this was a tall order, but there can be no doubt that they succeeded, and even today, though there are more modern cars and faster cars (a tiny number), it is the Countach which will draw people’s attention like no other car. The stunning styling was by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini and when the first prototype was revealed as project 112, one of the factory workers exclaimed “Countach”, a local Piemontese expletive, roughly translated as “Wow!”.  The name stuck.

This stunning Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole is finished in the period correct colour scheme of Nero black, with a Nero black leather interior, and gold painted Route O.Z. wheels, fitted with the correct Pirelli P-Zero tyres. The Countach wears its originality with pride, with we believe 90% original paint, and the Carbon Kevlar weave showing on the engine cover. The paint is in good condition, the engine is said to be strong, and the gearbox precise.

Showing a mere 21,000km on the odometer (supported by a Carfax certification), the Countach is THE poster car of the 1980s, and we believe this is one of the nicer examples on the market.

Dieser atemberaubende Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole ist in der Farbe Nero Schwarz gefertigt, mit schwarzem Lederinterieur und Gold bemalten O.Z. Rädern und angepassten Pirelli P-Zero Reifen. Die Originalität des Countach sind offensichtlich, mit wohl 90%iger Originallackierung. Die Farbe ist in gutem Zustand, der Motor stark und das Getriebe einwandfrei.

Mit nur 21.000 gefahrenen Km (bestätigt durch ein Zertifikat von Carfax), ist der Countach DAS Posterauto der 80er Jahre, und speziell dieses Modell ist eines der schönsten auf dem Markt.
