Lowered suspension and wheels are all you need when you spec a stunning paint job like this.
The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 was revealed in 2021 as a special edition of which only 112 examples would be made, but that hasn't stopped one wealthy buyer from putting his own spin on the car by lowering it.
As such a rare and special creation, it's no surprise that this is the only modified Countach in the world, but you may be surprised to learn that the spectacular finish on the body is not part of the aftermarket changes. This is a factory-applied paint finish called Blu Hal, and it's reminiscent of the iridescent, pearlescent hues you'd find on TVR Tuscans finished in ChromaFlair. JDM fans will recall the similarities to Midnight Purple, as seen on various Nissan Skyline GT-R models.
Since so few Countach special editions were to be produced, this is probably also the only one in the world in this color. But let's talk about the modifications.
This particular car lives in Japan and has been lightly tuned with easily reversible modifications, so if you're a purist, hold your horses.
The two-piece wheels are some of the latest from ANRKY Wheels' X Series, called S2-X0. They're presented in an attention-grabbing Mirror Polished Gold finish. Behind these, you can see red calipers, which match the upholstery in the cabin.
The only other modification is a static (not air suspension) lowering kit. As long as the owner doesn't scrape the underbelly or the lip (and avoids any irreversible modifications), these changes should not negatively impact the future value of the car.
Unlike Ferrari, we doubt that Lamborghini will take issue with a fan modifying one of its rarest limited editions. We doubt everyone who sees this will feel quite so good about it; the combination of color-flipping paint - which reportedly costs some $60,000 - and brightly polished gold wheels is certainly not for everyone.
But then again, this is a car that comes with scissor doors from the factory. Breaking necks and riling purists has always been on the agenda at Sant'Agata, and that's what makes the brand so different from many of its compatriot rivals.
Does the Countach look better without any modifications? Take a look at the video below and let us know.
