Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary

Petrolhead Dream Motors, Market finds

The ebay listing for this stunning Lamborghini Countach looks like a poster from the 1980's. This is no, if there is such a thing, ordinary Countach but the 25th Anniversary model. Obviously named to honour the company's twenty-fifth anniversary. Only 658 were produced and different from other Countachs by extra styling vents and different rear lights. My old boss had one, it spent more time in the workshop than on the road, although a thing of beauty I did wince when I heard he spent £5000 on the clutch, parts only, and this was in 1999. So if you have enough spare cash to buy a house but want something that can be used, admired and (hopefully) get good returns from this is your car.

'While you could argue that its older, more traditionally beautiful sibling, the Miura, started the whole supercar genre, most of us regard the Lamborghini Countach as the movement’s founding father. It remains an automotive icon, as daring and eye-catching today as it was in its prime. Which is why we at Prindiville feel privileged to offer this right-hand drive European-spec Countach Anniversary, one of only 658 models produced to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the wedge-shaped wonder.

First registered in 1989, this car has covered just 27,500 miles and is in pristine condition. Looking particularly handsome in black, the Anniversary edition’s styling updates were created by one Horacio Pagani, now somewhat more famous for his very own hypercar, the Pangani Zonda.To bring the interior of this Countach into line with the very high standard of exterior, we recently commissioned the re-upholstery of the cream leather seats with black piping. The facia, steering wheel, carpets and even the open gate for the gear-lever, are also in black, lending the cabin a chic, laid-back feeling.Any sense of tranquility is, of course, annihilated when you fire up the 5.2-litre V12 engine that sits just behind the seats.

Refreshingly old school in sound and temperament, it retains sufficient snarling energy to shoot the Countach from standstill to 60mph in 4.8 seconds and thrust it on to a top speed of 190mph.A sparkling example of one of the classic supercars, this Countach Anniversary has excellent investment potential. This vehicle was sold new by Portman Lamborghini UK and deliverd new in December 1989.'
