The Lamborghini Countach is better known as a bedroom poster than a supercar. Yes, it was a defining supercar for the Italian moniker, but the revenue derived from associated memorabilia far outweighs the money that was made from selling the car.
One look at the 80’s icon and it’s not hard to see why — The Countach is extreme, to say the least. As with the Miura, the Countach represents the backbone of what made Lamborghini the icon it is today. Head designer Marcello Gandini managed to create a car that was fascinating, unconventional, unpractical and, above all, hugely desirable.
The Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV for sale here is one of 610 that were made in a production run that spanned from 1985-88. The LP5000S QV was the third major revision for the Countach — it introduced 4 valve heads and an engine stroke that was increased to 75mm for a total displacement of 5176cc.
This, however, isn’t a conventional LP5000 QV—it is 1 of less than 100 right-hand drive examples that were delivered from the factory.
Originally flown into Sydney via Air Italian in July 1985, where it was later sold out of “The Toy Shop” in North Sydney. The Countach has since travelled 69,970km— a considerable amount given the sensitivity of the engine and service expenses involved with owning an early Lamborghini.
