Wheels (Australia) - - 30 DAYS MARCH 2020 -

June 14, 1977 was a big day for Rod Ste­wart, with the Span­dex-lov­ing rocker tak­ing de­liv­ery of this Lam­borgh­ini Coun­tach LP400 Perisco­pio from new here in Aus­tralia. The car then sat in a Syd­ney record­ing stu­dio for a cou­ple of weeks while he recorded Blondes Have More Fun. It was sub­se­quently con­verted to wide-arch, left-hand-drive Spi­der form in the US (don’t ask), and then largely re­stored to fac­tory spec, so it’s been through quite a jour­ney. It’s set for sale at Artcu­rial’s Retro­mo­bile 2020 sale with an es­ti­mated price of one mil­lion eu­ros, which seems about right for a car with such a Byzan­tine back­story.
