Highlights of this Car
-Factory Electronic Climate Control
-Factory Gold Wheels
The Countach was styled by Marcello Gandini of the Bertone design studio, he same designer and studio that designed the Miura. Gandini was then a young, nexperienced designer - not very experienced in the practical, rgonomic aspects of automobile design, ut at the same time unhindered by them. Gandini produced a striking design. The Countach shape was wide and low (42.1 inches (1.07 m)), ut not very long (only 163 inches (4.1 m)). Its angular and wedge-shaped body was made almost entirely of flat, rapezoidal panels.
The doors, Lamborghini trademark first started with the Countach, ere scissor doors: hinged at the front with horizontal hinges, o that they lifted up and tilted forwards. The main reason is the car's tubular spaceframe chassis results in very high and wide door sills. It was also partly for style, nd partly because the width of the car made conventional doors impossible to use in an even slightly confined space. Care needed to be taken, hough, n opening the doors with a low roof overhead. The car's poor rear visibility and wide sills led to drivers adopting a method of reversing the car for parking by opening the door, itting on the sill, nd reversing while looking over the back of the car from outside.
The Countach's styling and visual impression caused it to become an icon of great design to almost everyone except automotive engineers. The superior performance characteristics of later Lamborghini models (such as the Diablo, r the Murcielago) appealed to performance car drivers and engineers, ut they never had the originality or outrageousness that gave the Countach its distinction. The different impressions left by the various Lamborghini models have generated numerous debates and disagreements over what constitutes "classic" or "great" automotive design (elegant looks and style, ersus technical and engineering superiority).
From the prototype to the 25th Anniversary cars, amborghini continued to improve the mechanical technology of the Countach. In 1985 the engine was improved significantly over previous models, ored and stroked to 5167 cc and given four valves per cylinder (quattrovalvole in Italian). Some body panels were also replaced by Kevlar, much lighter and stronger material.
For the first time, US specification model was produced by the factory, ith styling changes to allow bumpers to meet US federal safety standards. Although this change was the most notable on the exterior, he most prominent change under the hood was the introduction of fuel injection, ith the Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, roviding 414 bhp (309 kW; 420 PS), ather than the six Weber carburetors used in previous models. The 1985 US model had a base price close to $100,000. Only two optional extras were available: a $5,500 aerodynamic spoiler and a $7,500 sound system. As for other markets, 987 and 1988 model Quattrovalvoles received straked sideskirts. Only 610 cars were built.
Manufactured February of 1988, his V12 Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole is a highly original survivor in immaculate condition. It was delivered new with gold wheels and $5,500 optional aerodynamic rear spoiler. Odometer reads in kilometres, howing just 15,640 kms or 9718 US Miles from new. It was sold new to the first and only owner in Montreal, anada at Lamborghini Montreal by salesperson Kelly Strong. 27 years later, elly took the same car back on trade from the original owner. This Countach had its last major service in 2013 to the tune of $9,500. It drives exceptionally well and all systems are operating as they should.
This is perhaps the most iconic supercar design in the world. It is the most recognizable and one of the most loved "poster cars" of the 1970s and 1980s. It embodies the wild, uxurious and outrageous styling of the era. Yes, s contemporary reviews stated, he visibility is weak when reversing or changing lanes, ut we've found drivabilty is actually very good. On top of that, he engine and exhaust sound is pure magic. I have yet to hear another V12 that makes its presence known this well. This is the "Gullwing" of the 70s and 80s. It is a must for any major collection and a dream car for everyone who had a poster of it on the wall. Re-live the Cannonball Run days with a Black/Black/Gold 1988 Lamborghini Countach 5000QV.
