Exquisite white Lamborghini Countach auctioned offMay 5, 2020
The 1984 supercar had just two owners in 36 years
A rare Lamborghini Countach LP500 S with mileage of less than 15 thousand kilometers will be sold at RM Sotheby’s at the end of June. The Italian supercar with a red body and an exquisite white leather interior has been preserved in a completely original condition and has not been restored.
Offered for sale Countach in the LP500 S version – such supercars were produced from 1982 to 1985 and were equipped with a 371-horsepower V12 carburetor with a working volume of 4754 cubic centimeters in combination with a 5-speed “mechanics”. Another difference is the ceiling raised by 30 millimeters in comparison with the usual modification. A total of 321 copies of the Countach LP500 S were released.
The first owner of a rare Lamborghini bought a car in March 1984 and drove about 14.5 thousand kilometers in Germany over thirty years. In 2014, Countach was overbought by a European collector of supercars, but the car was considered an investment and almost did not drive.
Although 36 years have passed since the release of the car, the bodywork is perfectly preserved: there is not only a hint of rust, but also a burnout of scarlet paint. The interior also looks great: only the cracked knob of the gear lever gives age. Although Lamborghini drove a little, both owners took care of the supercar in a timely manner.
Auction house RM Sotheby’s expects to gain at least 275 thousand dollars for the Lamborghini Countach. The price does not look too high, because a similar supercar, owned by Formula 1 champion Mario Andretti, was sold last year for $ 500,000. Bidding will be held in June.
