1983 Lam­borgh­ini Coun­tach 5000S

Classic Sports Car - - News -

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.’
