When first introduced, the Countach took automotive design and engineering to a whole new level. Quite an accomplishment for an Italian tractor maker, but it became the icon for exotic styling predicting the angular style that became popular in the 1980’s. Add to that the powerful V12 engine, an understanding of how the driver and the car worked in unison and that too much was never enough, and the Countach became the car every car-aware kid had to have a poster of on their bedroom walls. In 1985 the engine was improved again, bored and stroked to 5167 cc and given four valves per cylinder—quattrovalvole in Italian, hence the model’s name, Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole or 5000 QV in short. The biggest change under the hood was the introduction of fuel injection, with the Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, providing 414 bhp (309 kW; 420 PS), rather than the six Weber carburetors providing 455 bhp (339 kW; 461 PS) used in the previous carbureted models. As for other markets, 1987 and 1988 model Quattrovalvoles received straked sideskirts and a mere 610 cars were built.
This amazing 5000 QV came from a private collection. It comes complete with it’s original numbers matching drivetrain. Driven a mere 29,645 KM (18,420 Miles) over the last 27 Years. Mostly in it’s un-restored condition, finished in its original Rosso color along with it’s original, refreshed tan leather seats and recently revived dash. Wearing mostly original decals, ID tags and stickers it is one of the last of the great Lamborghini’s produced. The Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection makes this car a pleasure to drive while providing a symphony of Italian muscle and the pure exhilaration this car provides the driver makes it all worthwhile. Fitted with the highly desirable rear wing and “five-hole” gold alloy wheels this is the type of car many dream of, but few will own. An important Countach that has been preserved for you to enjoy today.
