Offered at auction is an unrestored, 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP400. It is rare to come across an LP400 for sale and especially at auction! The Lamborghini Countach was the design that revolutionized the exotic car industry. Until today, it has remained an icon and set itself in the list of the nicest cars designed. Approximately 150 LP400’s were built from 1974 -1977, explaining why very few are seen or available for sale. In addition, Lamborghini values are on a sudden rise and the demand has increased tremendously, this car is an investment that should continue to appreciate. Of all the Lamborghini’s, the Countach was the one that put Lamborghini on the map.
This car has covered only 28000 km’s since new. The body and paint are very nice, the engine bay is in original condition, it is highly detailed. The interior is all original and shows the signs of ‘patina.’ Mechanically, a tune up was just performed and the car was just gone through with many items replaced. We were told the car was ordered and kept in the United Kingdom until recently. It is rumored to have belonged to Mr. Adnan Khashoggi, a celebrity and one of the richest men in the world. We only have one document that links the ownership to Mr. Adnan Khashoggi, a copy from the United Kingdom title of ownership with his name and the details of the car. If Mr. Khashoggi did in fact own the car since new that would make it the only LP400’s in the world to have been kept by its original owner until 2007. It is our opinion that Mr. Adnan Khashoggi didn’t feel the need to purchase used cars back then as it is claimed he owned a few hundred exotic and collector cars. There was even a book written about Mr. Adnan Khashoggi by author/writer Kessler, Ronald. The book was ‘The Richest Man in the World’ the Story of Adnan Khashoggi, published by Warner Books. We believe that this is a one-owner car, and has never been restored. This rare Lamborghini Countach LP400 has all the right elements to be added to any car collection today!
