During the early 1980s US based auto enthusiasts suffered a horrible dilemma. The Enviromental Protection Agency and the Division of Transportation (EPA/DOT) made it impossible to import and own some of the greatest European exotic cars produced at the time.
The current importer Joe Nastasi of Lamborghini North America contacted J/T and immediately started converting european spec cars. Buyers flocked to buy these cars and Lamborghini took notice.
It was soon that Ras and Trefor would design a system for Automobili Lamborghini that would be produced by the factory as a FACTORY specification USA Lamborghini Countach.
Most Lamborghini owners know that Lamborghini started making the 1986 Lamborghini Countach 500S Quatrovalve / QV with large rubber bumpers and massive fuel injection plentums. What most owners do now know, and even some experts is that Lamborghini actually produced a handful of factory 1984/1985 Countach 5000S 2 valve cars.
These cars were the FIRST and extremely rare. There is an argument as to how many? Some say 12, others as many as 37.
