In the realm of luxury supercars, few models can rival the legacy of the Lamborghini Countach. A creation born out of a desire to overshadow Ferrari’s Daytona and to be the rightful heir to the Miura, this automobile is nothing short of legendary. In 1974, when Ferruccio Lamborghini unveiled the Countach, the automotive world stood still. This rear-wheel-drive marvel with its spacious interior quickly became the talk of the town. Fourteen years of perfecting the model culminated in the release of the Countach 25th Anniversary Edition – a supercar set to redefine boundaries.

The genius behind this iconic version was Horacio Pagani, the founder of Pagani Automobili. With his intricate design tweaks, the car saw enhanced aerodynamics and improved cooling. The result? A vehicle that was pleasing to the eyes and efficient on the road.

The first Owner 

This vehicle, one of only 657 25th Anniversary models, has a history that traces back to Somerset, UK, where it was first delivered in April 1990 through Portman Lamborghini bearing the registration G763VYR. According to the provided invoices, the car underwent its inaugural service a month post-delivery. After being used for two months, during which it clocked 3,557 kilometers, it received its second service. This service included warranty paint touch-ups to the front spoiler, bonnet, left front wing, engine cover, and rear panel. 

By December 6, 1990, the car had been driven 8,550 kilometers and received its third service. The following April, minor adjustments were made to address an occasional speedometer issue. Even though it was supplied for the UK market, Lamborghini equipped the car with a speedometer that displays miles and kilometers. However, the odometer exclusively records in kilometers.

The second Owner 

By 1992, the Countach had been acquired by its second recorded Owner, who promptly installed a sports exhaust system. In July 1993, with the odometer reading 14,109 kilometers, the carburetors underwent repairs, and several ignition parts were replaced. The Lamborghini remained in the United Kingdom for its initial two decades, as confirmed by multiple MoT certificates spanning from 1998 to 2011.

Though the speedometer displays miles and kilometers, the odometer has a surprisingly low reading of approximately 19,200 kilometers (11,930 miles). It has passed through a series of hands, each Owner adding their personal touch. Notably, in 1992, its then-owner amplified its roar with a sports exhaust.

The third Owner 

This model found a new home in Hong Kong in 2013, receiving care and attention from Lamborghini Hong Kong. On February 26, 2016, the rear axle seals and exhaust system were replaced at a cost of nearly HKD 150,000. 

The fourth Owner

The latest Owner acquired the car in 2020 and had it serviced on March 20. Recently, in August 2023, it underwent an inspection by Lamborghini Hong Kong. A report of this inspection and a more comprehensive condition report are available for those interested.

Now is the chance for those who have dreamt of owning this piece of automotive art. RM Sotheby’s Sealed has listed the 25th Anniversary Metallic Black Lamborghini Countach without a reserve, anticipating it fetching between $350,000 and $450,000 on October 2. car To think, this masterpiece was once priced at a mere $100,000!
