The Countach, perhaps the supercar with the most bizarre design ever. Even now, almost fifty years after its introduction in 1974, the car still looks futuristic. Several have graced Gallery Aaldering's showroom, allowing us to say with our experience that we now have a Lamborghini Countach that is among the most beautiful and best in the world. Yes, we realize that's quite a statement but any connoisseur will have to agree after a look and test drive that there are virtually no examples that are as good in terms of condition and drive as great.The basis of the Countach may date back to 1974, but this example dates back to 1988, two years before production of the model stops. Whereas the archetypal versions of the ultra angular super sports car still made do without spoilers or fierce outfits, more and more additions came to the Lamborghini over the years. It made the Countach the loudest screaming kid in the class. Then again, the LP5000 QV, of which only 610 were built, which you see here is finished in the colors of earth rival Ferrari: red paint with a crème colored interior. You just have to dare to check the box in 1988 at Lamborghini.The first owner who bought the already legendary "poster car" in November 1988 owned the red bull for 26 years. After that, the car had only two other owners.
The Lamborghini Countach is a car from a time when the brand's cars were still hand built. Italians can do that like no other, but sometimes things went a little differently than how they were intended. Not this Rosso Siviglia Countach: this car is an example of how a écht good Countach should be. With a red body in absolute top condition, combined with its white Teledial wheels with huge Pirelli P Zero Asimmetrico tires (225/50VR15 vóór, 345/35VR15 rear), there is no one who will be able to admit not having seen the Countach. The huge air intakes, wide wheel arches, huge wing: everything about this car is so extreme that it is just right back in proportion. The condition? As you would expect with the mileage of 57,902, perfect. Should there be any, you will find some stone chips with a magnifying glass. Minimally present and so little that it hardly needs to be mentioned.Same goes for the interior, which is in impeccable condition. Accessible through the upward opening doors, which was unique at the time and had never before found its way into a production car in this way. Never did we see a Countach so neatly cared for inside, where stitching was so neat and where everything functioned soó well as in this LP5000 QV. Even the air conditioning functions well. From the deep seats to the fully leather-clad dashboard, everything is as you found it in the brochure at the time. The Countach is powered by, of course, a V12. In this case, 5.2 liters in size and, thanks to the feeding of six Weber carburetors, good for 455 horsepower, an incredible amount, 35 years ago. The power finds its way through a five-speed manual transmission.The LP5000QV comes with the necessary invoices and Fahrzeugbrief, as well as a purchase receipt from the previous owner. An excellent addition to any collection of legendary supercars or to use for what it was made for: countless exhilarating drives!
