With only Only 2705km (1681mi) since this masterpiece rolled out of the Factory, this is quite possibly the most desireable, collectible and valueable Countach available for sale in the world! This incredible time machine shows no sign of it s age, it appears to be brand new. Words can not do this one justice, it truly must bee seen to be fully appreciated! Finished in flawless Blanco White exterior over Lipstick Red leather piped in white, there is not a more perfect personification of the 1980 s excess and indulgence than this outrageous Countach. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Lamborghini this updeated model was introduced wich was the last of the legendary Countach. More outrageous than all it s predecessors, the 25th Anniversary was the purest definition of an Italian exotic sportscar. The new car carries over the 5167cc quad cam quattrovalve V-12 engine which was now producing 455 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. The body was heavily revised with very wide skirts, NACA ducts, big air intakes at the rear and boxed arches to support the new OZ racing wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires, and of course the enourmous rear wing to complete the package. This car literally is everything a collector could dream of. If you were looking for the best Countach money could buy, this is the one you were waiting for, there may never be a finer example found. $149,950.

the advert read:
This Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary is a ‘timewarp’ example of the highly sought-after and iconic 1980s supercar, offered with remarkably low mileage from new.
Under the rear engine cover sits a naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V12, delivering around 449bhp to the rear wheels via a five-speed open-gate manual transmission.
This example was originally a US-delivered model, but was imported into the UK and first registered with the DVLA in August 2019.
This Countach 25th Anniversary is one of just 657 examples produced worldwide.
The odometer shows 4,166 km, and there are a handful of recorded mileage entries on the US Carfax report spanning 1989 to 2012, which suggests that the indicated mileage is likely accurate. The final documented US reading was 3,339 km in December 2012.
Please note: it is understood that while a US-delivery car, Countach models of this era were delivered with kilometre-readout speedometer/odometer gauges.
EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES
Announced in 1988, the Countach 25th Anniversary was produced to celebrate 25 years of the legendary marque, and was the final and most refined Countach model ever built.
The model features a number of styling revisions, including the enlargement and extension of the rear airbox intakes, OZ Racing alloy wheels, a redesigned engine bay cover, a new rear bumper, the iconic rear wing, and a number of other aerodynamic updates that also improved engine cooling.
This example is finished in a handsome shade of white over a red leather-trimmed interior, featuring contrasting white seat piping and a black upper dashboard.
It rides on the correct set of 15-inch OZ Racing split-rim alloy wheels, shod in Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyres.
Equipment includes pop-up headlights, Jaeger gauges, climate control, and electrically adjustable seats.
This example has had catalytic converters re-added to the exhaust system, and has had the front bumper converted to a European-specification item.
The car comes with owner’s manuals with a red plastic wallet, the service booklet, a ‘Crave Luxury’ licence plate holder, the original flywheel, a JVC stereo unit, an Oklahoma Tax Commission slip, and a few maintenance invoices.
Please refer to the photo gallery to assess the exterior and interior condition.
The car’s last MOT test was conducted on 11 January 2024 at 4,120 km, which resulted in a first-time pass with no advisories.
This Countach’s most recent maintenance was carried out in April 2023. Joe Macari Classics carried out engine tuning and replaced the oil pressure switch, fitted four new Pirelli P7 tyres, rebuilt the inlet manifold with new plenum gaskets, fitted new cold start injector gaskets, and renewed the spark plugs. During this visit, a custom-built stainless steel exhaust was installed (a manifold-to-back system including sports catalysts). A Blaupunkt radio with Bluetooth and DAB was also fitted, wiring repairs were carried out for the fog lights and blower fan, and repairs were also made to the central locking system.
Prior to this, it was seen in September 2021 by Belgravia Garage, which consisted of new hazard warning light circuit relays being fitted, wiring repairs, and new roadworthy numberplates being installed.
An invoice on file from Joe Macari in February 2020 documents a full respray (carried out in October 2019 at 3,720 km), including replacing the US-spec front bumper with a European-spec item, and specialist work being carried out to convert the exhaust to include catalytic converters to reduce noise. .
