Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary
Founded in 1963, Lamborghini has built a reputation of making some of the most exotic and wildly styled supercars in the world. Sporting an out-of-this-world design, the Countach has become synonymous with the term supercar, and in 1988 it had the distinction of being the platform upon which Lamborghini would celebrate its upcoming 25th anniversary. For the first time since Chrysler took over, Lamborghini had instituted new styling changes. The anniversary edition featured more than 500 changes in total, including an upgraded Alpine sound system, restyled front air dam and air intakes, front and side skirting and wide wheel flares. All-new 15-inch alloy three piece wheels with the famed five-vent design were manufactured by O.Z. Racing and shod with Pirelli P-Zero 345/35 ZR15 tires that gave the car greatly needed assistance putting its monstrous power to the pavement.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in August of 2010 at the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center, Monterey, California.
420 hp, 5,767 cc four-overhead cam alloy block and head solid lifter V12 engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, five-speed manual transmission, four-wheel independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 98.4".
