1983 Lamborghini Countach 5000S
1,010 Miles, Black, Manual, Petrol £450,000 Built in 1983 in S.agata Bolognese and originally supplied to Cyprus and then exported to the UK in 1989, this black Lamborghini Countach has been lovingly cared for in its 35 years of life. The car has a full service history and in 2016 was sent to Valentino Balboni in Italy for a major service, including a new clutch and tyres. The Countach was returned with a letter confirming its originality and superb condition. In early 2018 it received an engine rebuild which was photographically detailed. This Lamborghini Countach is one of 2049 created and 1 of 36 RHDS ever produced. The rear mid-engine V12 5-speed manual sports car will transport you from 0-60mph in 5.60 seconds. With the engine pointing backwards for better weight distribution, this is a car you step on the gas for and is still just as powerful as a wide range of today’s modern supercars. Valentino Balboni, one of Lamborghini’s test drivers for over 40years describes the drive of the car as an emotion.
‘The car talks to you, you need to understand it and dance with the car’s steering. The emotion never goes away.’
