Having only covered 4,183km since new, is described as an incredible survivor. Included with this car are the following: original spare tire, owners manuals, and Alpine Radio.

The Lamborghini Countach is a rear mid-engined, V12 sports car produced by Italian car manufacturer Lamborghini from 1974 to 1990. It is one of the then-exotic designs conceptualized by Italian Design house Bertone which pioneered and popularized the sharply angled “Italian Wedge” design language.This design language was originally embodied and introduced to the public in 1970 as the Lancia Stratos concept car, while the first showing of the Countach was in 1971 as the Lamborghini LP500 Concept Car. The DNA of the original Countach can be found within the design language of sports cars throughout the 1970s and into the ’80s. The Countach also popularized the “cab forward design concept, which pushes the passenger compartment forward to accommodate a larger rear-mounted engine.

In 2004, American car magazine Sports Car International named the Lamborghini Countach number three on the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1970s and listed it number ten on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1980s. Named to honor the company’s twenty-fifth anniversary in 1988, the 25th Anniversary Countach, although mechanically very similar to the 5000QV, sported considerable restyling by none other than Horacio Pagani.

Notably, enlargement and extension of the rear ‘air-box’ intake-ducts was among other refinements undertaken (extending them to a more gradual incline further in-keeping with aerodynamic-streamlining), while the secondary pair of debossed ducts, originally situated further behind them, were brought forward and relocated directly on top, encompassing refashioned fins now running longitudinally rather than transversely, this allowed the airboxes, located behind the radiators to be rotated from a transverse to a longitudinal position, allowing better airflow from the radiators out through the secondary fins.

Additionally, further reconstruction of an already modified engine-bay cover, from a concept consisting of dual-raised sections and tri-ducting, to one that embodies a center-raised section incorporating dual-ducting become another feature. Various redevelopments to the rear-end were made; most notably the introduction of a rear bumper extending outwardly from the lower-portion.

These styling changes were unpopular with many—particularly features such as the fin strakes within the primary rear-intake-ducts openings, which appeared to mimic the Ferrari Testarossa though providing crucial improved engine cooling. Nonetheless it was only outsold by the QV model. It continued to featue 345/35R15 tires. The Anniversary edition was produced up until 1990 before being superseded by the Lamborghini Diablo.
The 25th Anniversary Edition was the most refined and possibly the fastest edition of the Lamborghini Countach: 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 4.7 seconds and 295 km/h(183 MPH) all out.
