Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary
Supplied by Furlonger to its current keeper in 2019, this Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary has rejoined the market showing just 36,300 kms (22,555 miles) on the odometer. A car well known to Furlonger and synonymous within the Lamborghini owners club, this Countach is accompanied by a well-documented service and ownership history from new.
Delivered new to a Mr P. Carlisle of Rochdale in January of 1989 via Portman Lamborghini, optioned in Countach White over a Blue leather interior with White piping, the same specification it wears today.
The Countach is accompanied by an extensive history file with invoices dating back as early as 1989, being maintained by Portman Lamborghini for some of its early life and the latter by Marque specialists including Carrera Sport. The car will benefit from a full service and any other required preparation prior to sale within Furlonger workshops.
In celebration of Lamborghini's twenty-fith anniversary, the latest Countach was unveiled by the company at the 1988 Grand Prix at Monza. What better way to mark the occasion than to release a special edition of their monstrous V12 road car. The 25th Anniversary Countach, although mechanically very similar to the 5000QV, had multiple styling changes which were carried out by Horacio Pagani who updated the Gandini design. These changes included enlargement and extension of the rear 'air-box' intake-ducts was among other refinements undertaken (extending them to a more gradual incline further in-keeping with aerodynamic-streamlining), while the secondary pair of debossed ducts, originally situated further behind them, were brought forward and relocated directly on top, encompassing refashioned fins now running longitudinally rather than transversely, this allowed the airboxes, located behind the radiators to be rotated from a transverse to a longitudinal position, allowing better airflow from the radiators out through the secondary fins.
Additionally, further reconstruction of an already modified engine-bay cover, from a concept consisting of dual-raised sections and tri-ducting, to one that embodies a centre-raised section incorporating dual-ducting become another feature. Various redevelopments to the rear were made; most notably the introduction of a rear bumper extending outwardly from the lower-portion.
The interior had several noteable changes including all new electric seats, power windows, a newly designed steering wheel as well as a more powerful air conditioning system.
