This 25th Anniversary Edition Countach Has Under 400 Miles On It

That's barely more than delivery mileage.

Cars like this 25th Anniversary Edition Lamborghini Countach always confuse us. Why would you buy a supercar, one of the very coolest of the day, and not ever drive the thing? Sure, some cars can be bought purely for investment purposes but a decent Sunday drive every few months is a must. Cars that stand will inevitably end up with problems, all the moving parts need to do just that - move. Still, it makes finds like this all the more impressive. This 1990 model Lamborghini has covered just 388 miles in the last 25 years.

The motor has barely run in, most things probably haven't even seated and settled properly, but with such low mileage and a meticulous owner for 25 years, it sets the precedent for what the rest of the car's condition will be. Immaculate. On this limited edition car, it features a host of changes over the previous 5000QV model, although many were chassis related or under the skin and went unseen. But certain exterior changes help identify the model. More air ducting and vents were added to help cool the notoriously hot-running car, skirtings were changed and the taillights were redesigned slightly. The larger airboxes and new vents at the rear were more prominent than before.

For 1990, the powerplant was plenty strong. The last of the Countach range retained the carb-fed, atmospheric 5.2-liter V12 that produces 455 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. This let the hit 62 mph in just 4.8 seconds and gave it a top speed of 190 mph. With those specs we'd struggle to keep it parked up for so long. The car changed owners in 2015 and after a comprehensive $25,000 service, is now going up for auction at Coys in the U.K. There's no reserves set as yet, but with both keys, matching service books and manuals and this ridiculously low mileage, it may fetch some decent money. We wouldn't be surprised if it parted for a million bucks.
