1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Monterey event, 15 - 17 August 2019. Less than 8,000 kilometers from newOne of just 657 25th Anniversary editionsFitted with optional rear wingIncludes original tools, jack, and owner’s manualsWidely regarded as the best driving of all Countach variants Looking to celebrate the 25th birthday of the most famous car to bear the Lamborghini name, the Countach 25th Anniversario was unveiled by the company at the 1988 Grand Prix at Monza. This new Countach retained the same visual panache and performance of the existing 5000 QV but boasted nearly 500 subtle changes and updates intended to increase passenger comfort and style.Horacio Pagani, then an employee of Lamborghini, was tasked with redesigning the bodywork. This included lifting the nose slightly and redesigning the air intakes to more effectively channel air to the front brakes. At the same time, the rear bumper also received subtle styling changes. The two most notable changes were to the air intakes that were located just behind the door, which received thicker strakes in body color rather than in black, and the wheels were now two-piece forged alloy rims.Inside, Lamborghini replaced the Countach’s relatively spartan, manually operated windows with power-operated units. Furthermore, the seats were fitted with power-adjustable seatbacks to increase driver and passenger comfort. A newer steering wheel was fitted, and the 25th Anniversary Countach was graced with a more powerful air-conditioning system.Finished in the highly desirable color combination of black over cream leather, this 25th Anniversary Countach features original Hella fog lamps and the optional rear wing. The car rides on beautiful factory split-rim alloys and bespoke Pirelli PZero Asymmetrico tires. The car was delivered new in California, with the history report showing it passed emissions with 218 miles on the odometer and remained on the West Coast through about 1993. It was briefly offered in the Greenwich, Connecticut, area, and in 1994 it came into the hands of the most recent owner. Since then, it has been used sparingly and kept it in a climate-controlled facility. Best described as an unmodified, original example, this Countach has covered less than 8,000 kilometers (5,000 miles) from new. It has recently benefitted from a full service and is accompanied by original tools, jack, and owner’s manuals.The Countach 25th Anniversary represents the last iteration of Lamborghini’s most iconic car, and many believe it to be the best of the series in terms of overall refinement and drivability. Beautifully preserved and remarkably original throughout, this Countach is sure to impress.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at - details above.
