Even though it’s more than 45 years since the Countach design study first made its debut and with a whole raft of supercars appearing in the meantime, nothing has dulled the impact of perhaps the most astonishing car design ever.
The legendary Miura was always going to be a hard act to follow, so the extent to which its successor eclipsed the greatest of 1960s supercars came as something of a shock to all. The sensation of the 1971 Geneva Salon, the Countach was styled, like its predecessor, by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini. A production version would not be seen for another two years, with deliveries commencing in 1974.
Our Lamborhini Countach 5000 S is 1 of just 321 examples built in total, of which only 296 were left-hand drive. With its 4,752cc, V12 engine the driving experience is phenomenal, an experience one would expect from the iconic Countach design.
DD Classics is pleased to offer this beautiful Countach for sale finished in its stunning original colour of Blu Tahiti Metallic, complemented by a Ivory hide interior with Black carpets piped with Ivory and a lovely Dark Brown dashboard, for visual drama, no car can match the legendary Lamborghini Countach.
