This Rare Lamborghini Countach Is Practically Brand New

For Sale / Comments

It's only been driven 5,500 miles and has just one previous owner.

One of the biggest surprises of 2021 in the automotive world was the rebirth of the iconic Lamborghini Countach. Based on a retro-styled Aventador to celebrate the original car's 50th anniversary, the new 2021 Countach utilizes the same electrified setup as the Sian, with a 6.5-liter V12 engine and a 48-volt motor combining to produce 802 hp and 531 lb-ft.

Production was limited to just 112 units, but despite the eyebrow-raising $2.3 million tag, they all sold out. If you missed out, an original 1983 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 S in immaculate condition is looking for a new owner.

Listed for sale in the UK by Kaaimans International via PistonHeads, the Lamborghini Countach LP5000 S is finished in black with a cream leather interior. What makes this LP5000 S for sale so special and rare is that it's one of only 23 examples built in right-hand drive and imported to the UK market out of the total 321 LP5000 S cars that were sold worldwide. Surprisingly, it's only had one owner since it rolled off the assembly line in 1983.

It's barely been driven since then, though, as it's only clocked 5,500 miles. As a result, this rare Countach LP5000 S is in remarkable condition and looks brand new. It even still has the original Campagnolo stickers on the wheels and Vitaloni stickers on the door mirrors.

As an LP5000 S model, the Countach for sale is powered by a 4.7-liter V12 producing 370 horsepower and 308 ft-lb of torque, with power sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. It's also fitted with the only two options that were available at the time: an optional rear wing fitted outside the factory and an Alpine stereo.

You'll need to own deep pockets to own it, as the rare LP5000 S is being sold for £450,000 ($603,609). That's a lot of money to cough up, but it's still cheaper than some 2022 Countach models selling for as much as $7 million.
