Is Darth Vader The Best Way To Sell A Lamborghini Countach?


Yes. Yes he is.

The Lamborghini Countach is an iconic piece of supercar history for so many reasons. First off, it has a design that still sticks out today, with its unique wedge shape, massive rear wing and scissor doors checking in as the exact opposite of subtle. It was also quite powerful, especially in LP500 S (also known as 5000 S) guise. Only 323 LP500 S models were made and sitting in each was a slightly beefier version of the Countach’s V12, with displacement upped to five liters (over four). It had 375 horsepower and 308 lb-ft of torque.

Overall it looked almost identical to the Countachs before it but outsold previous models due to being faster and newer. This particular example is being sold by UK auction house Coys. It's an ’84 with one previous owner and has 32,187 miles. It was reportedly the second of the LP500 S made and has been safely stored in a dehumidified garage since 1990. A Countach doesn’t need any help selling, but Coys decided to have a little fun with this example anyway. The supercar already looks like it’d be at home in the Star Wars universe, which explains the Stormtroopers and Darth Vader posing next to it! We don’t know if this will push the asking price—expected to be between $421,000 and $481,000—up, but it’s an awesome idea nonetheless.
