The poster car of its era, the Lamborghini Countach became and remains today the automotive equivalent of a pin-up and something of a fantasy object of desire. Countach was styled by Marcello Gandini of the Bertone design studio, the same designer and studio that designed the Miura. Gandini was then a young, inexperienced designer — not very experienced in the practical, ergonomic aspects of automobile design, but at the same time unhindered by them. Gandini produced a striking design. The Countach shape was wide and low (42.1 inches (1.07 m)), but not very long (only 163 inches (4.1 m)). Its angular and wedge-shaped body was made almost entirely of flat, trapezoidal panels. Lamborghinis trademark 'scissor' doors first started with the Countach, hinged at the front with horizontal hinges, so they lifted up and tilted forwards. The main reason is the car's tubular spaceframe chassis results in very high and wide door sills. It was also partly for style, and partly because the width of the car made conventional doors difficult to use in an even slightly confined space. The longitudinally mounted 12-cylinder 5.2 Litre produces everything one might expect of a car of this type, not only in performance terms but also by exhaust note. Our car at only 523 miles must be the lowest mileage example in existence and without doubt it is the finest available for sale. The striking combination of Nero Black coachwork, against Snow White leather, truly deserves the admiration it attracts. Ready to be enjoyed, this is the ultimate collectors Countach and with its ultra low mileage it will surely continue to rocket in value! As much at home on the Kings Road or the Riviera as on the open road between.

The Lamborghini Countach received its third and probably most important revision in March 1985. As an answer to the just launched Ferrari Testarossa, Lamborghini introduced four valves per cilinder and called this version simply the Quattrovalvole or QV. The engine capacity grew to 5167 cc, and compression ratio was increased to 9,5:1. This in combination with 6 downdraft two barrel Weber carburettors brought the power output to a massive 455 bhp at 7000 rpm. The competition from Maranello was beaten again, and the Countach remained the fastest sportscar on the market in 1985. We have now an example of this famous Quattrovalvole in our inventory. Finished in gleaming black, and in combination with stunning golden painted OZ Racing wheels, this Countach looks pretty astonishing. The interior is finished in tan leather, and is just like the rest of the car in immaculate condition. The engine starts on the button, and produces a subdued rumble at idle, but once you push the throttle it becomes a screaming and most impressive sound, accompanied by a massive increase in speed. What a car ! Countach prices are rocketing at the moment, and being the most dramatic car of the seventies and

In stock now is this amazing Lamborghini Countach 5000QV. The car was purchased by a British buyer working in the USA where he kept the car from new in 1988 through to bringing it back to the UK with him in 1991. A black car with black leather and gold wheels the car has covered just 24,850 kilometers, the equivalent of just 15441 miles. Since coming to the UK in 1991 the car has been looked after on behalf of its owner by Colin Clarke Engineering, a very well respected specialist in classic Lamborghinis. A box file of old invoices, MOTs etc accompanies the car. The car was fully repainted at the expense of Lamborghini London due to paintwork damage sustained when they parked it under a tree after servicing it and bird droppings damaged the paint. A spectacular 80s supercar classic this beautiful example would be a great addition to any collection.

To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at Auction Americas Fort Lauderdale event, March 27-29, 2015. Estimate:$375,000 - $425,000 In celebration of the companys 25th anniversary, Lamborghini released a further updated and slightly restyled version of its celebrated Countach. It was unveiled at the 1988 Italian Grand Prix at Monza and would become, to many, the most desirable iteration of the car. With almost 500 subtle changes over its predecessor, the 5000 QV, the new Countach retained the same striking visual panache and incredible performance that Lamborghinis customers had come to love. Showing less than 21,000 actual kilometers from new, this is one of approximately 650 examples produced; finished in Red with a tan leather interior. Benefitting from a recent repaint the car is in exceptional condition with a fresh and documented engine and clutch service that was executed in April and May of 2014. With just under 1,400 kilometers since, it remains in outstanding shape mechanically and cosmetically. Equipped with the iconic fuel-injected V-12 engine, it is mated to a five-speed manual transmission and produces 420-hp. It also comes equipped with air conditioning, Alpine radio; power windows, seats and disc brakes at all four corners. Easily the most advanced Countach ever offered, it is widely regarded as the best road-going Countach in terms of handling and reliability as well. It has been very well maintained and is offered with a clean Carfax, plus it is accompanied by books, tools and spare. The 25th Anniversary edition was perhaps the most memorable and widely recognized Countach, and it is fondly remembered by enthusiasts for not only its signature style but also the welcome updates that it brought to the 15-year-old Countach platform.

To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at Auction Americas Fort Lauderdale event, March 27-29, 2015. Estimate:$350,000 - $400,000 The Lamborghini Countach is perhaps the most iconic supercar of the last 30 years. It decorated the walls of a generation of young car fans in a poster known to most, and it helped define an era of supercar excess. Several decades later, the once cutting edge design may be somewhat dated, but is certainly still the stuff of exotic car dreams for many car aficionados. Anyone with the means to make their aging supercar dreams a reality would be hard pressed to find a nicer example than the one being offered. The Countach made its public debut at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. The design of the ultra-low two-seater sports car took the world by surprise. Perhaps the most captivating styling elements were the doors opening scissor-style, swinging up and forward. Over the years these famous doors have become a consistent Lamborghini design feature. The Bertone-designed legend grew ever more extravagant as engineers sought various measures aimed at keeping it pinned to the road in response to the ever-increasing power output from its refined V-12 powertrain. Bored-out to 5.2-liters for 1985, the V-12 was also given four valves per cylinder, for a total of 48, hence the moniker Quattrovalvole. European-specification Countach models gained six Weber downdraft carburetors located on the top of the engine, rather than from the side, while North American models received Bosch's K-Jetronic fuel injection system. The V-12 engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission. The shift mechanism is gated for smooth and accurate gear changes that are essential for maximizing the cars speed potentials. The Countach Quattrovalvole received small bodywork changes in late 1987; new streaked sills incorporating rear brake cooling vents were added. The interior was now equipped with central-locking, modified heater controls and much improved ventilation. The huge rear wing could still be ordered on the Quattrovalvole, and few Countach left the factory without one. The truth is that the Countach does not suffer from aerodynamic lift at high speeds, so the rear wing was not a necessity, but added a great deal of conversation to the design and the car being immediately recognizable to all but a few. The wing was an expensive option at about US $5,000, but with the increased drag created a slightly lower top speed. This exhilarating car has enjoyed same family ownership since new and is presented in original condition, with less than 15,000 kilometers displayed on the odometer. Attractively equipped with the appropriate factory phone dial-style alloy wheels and functional tall rear spoiler, the Lamborghini is finished in a fittingly sinister black presentation with an exquisite biscuit-toned leather interior. This example is reported to be exceptional and very sparingly used and displays as-new condition inside and out. Equipment includes air conditioning, Alpine AM/FM stereo radio with cassette, tinted glass, remote mirrors, driving lights and power four-wheel disc brakes. Its extraordinarily preserved condition invites closer inspection. It is accompanied by its books that include warranty and maintenance books, with the Retail Sales Certificate still in the back. Additionally there is the drivers handbook, owners manual and parts catalog binder. Documentation includes the original window sticker and service record from October 1989, as well as September, October and December of 2008. This magnificent Countach is prepared to be enjoyed by the next owner seeking the sweet symphony only a Lamborghini V-12 can provide.
