One of only 657 25th Anniversary Editions produced between 1989 and 1990 – 1 of 25 late model 1990 Countach produced – very rare and desirable! Featuring a 449-bhp, 5,167 cc V-12 engine with six Weber carburetors, and 5-speed manual transmission. Just over 29,000 kilometers from new (just 18,000 miles). The iconic “poster car” of its era – every kid had a picture of this Countach on the wall! Immaculately maintained, with a clean Carfax and history. All original Lamborghini – never repainted, complete with original tool roll.
The 25th Anniversary Countach was introduced in 1988 and it is often considered the most refined and best-sorted of its series. The car featured many minor updates from lessons learned with previous iterations of the Countach, and there were nearly 500 small differences between the 25th Anniversary edition and the Countach 5000 QV. The body was subtly redesigned by Horacio Pagani, a man now known for supercars of his own name. The front bumper was redesigned to incorporate air intakes to help cool the front brakes, and the nose was slightly raised. The 25th Anniversary edition also received a new rear bumper. The most noticeable cosmetic difference was that the radiator air intakes that were directly behind the iconic scissor-doors were now body-color, as they used to previously be finished in black. Underneath its skin, the car’s chassis received several updates to improve handling. The interior received many updates as well, with perhaps the most notable being the installation of electric-powered windows. Additionally, the seats were changed, power-adjustable seat backs were added, the steering wheel was replaced, and a more robust air-conditioning unit was installed, along with other minor updates.
This particular Countach, which was one of only a handful produced in 1990, was completed by the factory in Sant’ Agata Bolognese, Bolgna, Italy in 1990. It was finished in red over black and is stunning in its most desirable color combination. This US-spec Lambo still wears its red over black color scheme very well, and the odometer shows just over 29,000 kilometers from new, which is incredibly low mileage for a car of this age and caliber.
With a 16-year production run that spanned the entire 1980s, it’s obvious why the Countach became the poster child for a generation of enthusiasts, and late production units have always been considered to be the most comfortable and driver-friendly examples produced. This example is surely among the lowest-mileage examples in existence, and as such, it would be worthy of any collection.
