1986 Lamborghini

Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole

--White with White leather interior with Black carpeting, 16,440 Kilometers/10,215 miles from new, 5-speed manual, Long term ownership.

Widely regarded as the most outrageous car ever built, the Countach represented the promise of automotive design throughout the 70s and 80s. While there have been faster cars built, no car before or since has the presence of a Countach.

The world met Lamborghini's Countach at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. Styled by Marcello Gandini of Carrozzeria G. Bertone, who had created the earlier Miura, it struck out in new dimensions. Constructed almost entirely of trapezoidal aluminum panels over a space frame, it was but 42 inches high and 163 inches long. The most outrageous feature was what is now called “Lambo doors,” hinged at the front with horizontal hinges so that they swing upward in scissor fashion. Not simply for art, the doors are useful, in that they allow opening in tight spaces.

Power comes from a mid-mounted 5.2 liter V-12 with 4-valves per cylinder and Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection producing 455 BHP @ 7000 RPM and 369 ft-lbs of torque @ 5200 rpm. This USA specification Countach is capable of 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 185 MPH.

Accounting to our records, this Countach 5000 QV is purported to be one of only a handful produced in White/White. It has had only two owners from new, the first Mr. R. Hackler, Washington, D.C., the second and most recent a good client of Autosport Designs who has owned it since the mid 2000s. It has been serviced by Autosport Designs while in this last ownership.

This example is exceptional both cosmetically and mechanically and offered with full-service history. It has not been used in the past six years and upon our recent inspection will require a small amount of recommissioning to make ready for its next new ownership.
