This Countach was last serviced in 2013 and is ready to wow crowds with a shape that - even after all these years - can only be described as awesome.
Think about the rarity of the Countach, and how its name has transcended time to remain the ‘holy grail’ of all the Lamborghinis ever built. Now think about owning one that’s practically brand new here and now in 2016. You can. The upcoming Mecum auction in Monterey, California, will feature some of the most stunning supercars on the planet (most of which we’ve already covered), but one car stands out above all the rest: this pristine, 9,718-mile Countach.
It’s a 1988 LP5000 Quattrovalvole, to be exact, making it even more rare with only 610 example ever built. Brad new, this Countach would produce 414 horsepower, the engine bored and stroked from the previous generation V12 to 5.2 liters. As for this example in particular, it comes finished in a jet black exterior paint, with a jet black leather interior to match, factory gold rims, and a $5,500 optional rear wing. It also features a five-speed manual gearbox, like God intended.
For such a rare example, it’s actually not as expensive as you might think. Mecum estimates it could go for anywhere between $375,000 to $425,000. Not exactly chump change by any stretch of the imagination, but considering what you get, it’s almost a bargain.
