The Lamborghini Countach, a car renowned for its striking "alien" design and exceptional performance, is set to go up for auction. The specific model in question is a 1990 25th Anniversary Edition, the last model to be produced.
With a mere 249 kilometers on the odometer, it is a prime example of an iconic supercar.
Low Mileage Time Capsule
This Countach was originally sold to a Detroit doctor with 138 kilometers on the clock, meaning it has covered only 131 kilometers since it arrived in "private hands." Of that, a mere 20 kilometers can be attributed to the distributor who kept it in his possession between 2010 and 2020, and it was driven only for short distances to ensure its proper functioning.
This Lamborghini is so original that it still has the Pirelli P Zero tires it was delivered with 33 years ago. The car will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s, and it is expected to fetch between $750,000 and $1,000,000. The 25th Anniversary edition served to both refine its attributes and amplify its outlandishness to create the ultimate iteration of this must-have supercar.
With so few kilometers on the odometer and a recent service being completed, it is hard to imagine a more appealing example than this time capsule. "It is quite likely the lowest mileage, late-model Countach in existence, a true reference for a preservation-grade Lamborghini," said RM Sotheby’s.
The car is painted in metallic black, while the interior is upholstered in gray leather. The Countach comes with all the accompanying documentation, including a $275,000 invoice, making it a true collector's item.
A True Automotive Icon
The Lamborghini Countach has long been a favorite among car enthusiasts, thanks to its sleek, futuristic design and powerful performance.
The 25th Anniversary Edition, in particular, is considered the ultimate iteration of the Countach, a true masterpiece of automotive engineering. This particular model, with its incredibly low mileage, is a rare find, making it a true reference for a preservation-grade Lamborghini.
For those who are passionate about cars and have the means to acquire this piece of automotive history, it is an opportunity not to be missed. With its striking design, superb performance, and exceptional original condition, this Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition is sure to be the centerpiece of any car collection.
