In terms of supercar currency, of course.
Back in the late 1980s, a young Horacio Pagani was given the supercar holy task of updating the Lamborghini Countach for its then upcoming 25th anniversary. Pagani, already heavily pushing carbon fiber advancements, applied his ideas of design to the near perfect Gandini styling that already established the Countach as an icon. Instead of a major styling change, Pagani focused his efforts on the nose and, more noticeably, redesigned the air intakes to more effectively channel air to the ventilated front disc brakes.
Along with some rear bumper tweaks, the body air intakes behind the door received thicker body color stakes. The Countach 25th Anniversary, revealed at Monza in 1988, is now a sought after classic supercar. A total of 658 examples were built, such as the one you see here, which is heading to auction next month at RM Sotheby’s Paris event. With an estimated price tag between 250,000 and 300,000 euros, this Countach really could out to be a bargain. Classic analog supercar values could very well soon dramatically increase in value, a trend we’ve been seeing with older Ferraris. This Countach 25th Anniversary Edition is a three-owner 1991 (though it was built in ’89) model with just 2,153 miles on its odometer.

It was delivered to its first owner in Sweden in ’91 and wasn’t sold again until 2014. The second owner kept it parked and preserved in storage before deciding to sell it again. Now it’s looking for a fourth owner, someone who understands and has the means to maintain it for years to come. If that person is willing to be patient, spending upwards of 300,000 euros today could churn a nice profit at some point. Photos courtesy of Lukas Laurikietis/RM Sotheby’s.
