The Lamborghini Countach. Perhaps the most storied car in the history of the automobile business. Wild, angular, loud, hot and Italian as any car may be, the shape of dreams and a study in design which may never be duplicated.
A masterpiece of automotive design by Marcello Gandini for Bertone, the Countach evolved from its stripped down roots, the LP400 Periscopio, to future model variants such as the LP400 S and LP5000 S which grew in size featuring flared wheel arches, running boards, front air splitters and huge rear wings.
The LP5000 Quattrovalvole (QV) was next to last in the model range with 610 being produced in carbureted and fuel injected versions. The engines were bored out to 5.2 liters and finally given four valves per cylinder giving the model its name. The fuel injected versions resulted in 414BHP. Of the 610 Quattrovalvole examples made, 66 were equipped with the Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system.
This fuel injected 1988 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV (#12304) was delivered new in January 1988 to Eugene Carrie the Lamborghini Concessionaire in Canada. Carrie was the Lamborghini distributor in the region from the 1970s until the 1990s.
Less than fifty examples were produced with the Factory side skirts and updated A/C control system by Lamborghini in 1988 until the end of Countach 5000 QV production.
This incredible example comes complete with owners manual, service manual, tools and only 7,693 original miles.
“At Curated, we do not acquire cars simply for inventory but rather based on what the car is. We love interesting provenance, very low production, very low mileage, very special and often weird cars.”
