This car was at Ville d'Este a few years ago and is owned by a well known collector in the Netherlands. The restoration was done some years ago I think about 8 or so . under the guidance of Joe Sackey, the well known Lambo expert and enthusiast from California who incidentally owns the lovely plum Countach 5000qv .

I really like the ex Alberto SIlvera ( ex hotel owner in Haiti graced by the rich and famous in period) car not least because it features heuer clocks on the dash that are stylish and its in the lovely Miura blood orange colour. I have met the owner at a Goodwood event and he is a gentleman so the car is with a very good home. I am sure Marcel of the Countach Register would know a lot more about the car.
I sure do orangeLP400 ;-)
But we were talking about a black/red 5000 QV also owned by Silvera.
You describe an orangeLP400 ;-) also delivered to him. Here it is on my www.countach-register.com
Almost all 150 LP400's are listed there, really amazing!

Nothing more exciting that checking emails after a day away and seeing 20+ post notifications!
Wow!!! Some amazing photos being unearthed and posted on here. Not to mention the great stories and histories of the cars. So envious of all your experiences.
Thanks everyone for all your contributions.
Don’t wish to sound greedy but hope there is plenty more to come.

Cheers

Thanks! This car was bought by Gerrit Bloemendal, me thinks this is the same car after brought back to euro specs front and rear bumpers, and fitted with strange wheels..VIN GLA12985

You are right, this is one and the same, see pictures of when the car was imported with chassis number as number plate

Bingo!!!! This is fantastic! YES!!! The plate says it all, thanks a lot. Gerrit sold this car to Dolf Meijers, who has a rental company. He painted the car white. Actually, my best friend hired that Countach for his wedding day! I went with him to pick the car up early in the morning. So i sat in the same seat as you dear Rkinzz ;-)
Here are some pictures from June 27, 1997. He is still married to the same girl, so it really helped I guess, haha!

Oh wow that looks completely different, did it still have the gold plaque on the glove box.

When we had it, it was an awesome special metallic black I will dig out some more pictures later.

Also at Carrera sport we have at least 2 lambos that need adding to your countach register

C701 BYX is pretty special to me too.
I remember seeing the magazine at a motorway services back in ‘86 as a 12 year old and for some reason whilst captivated by it I didn’t buy. I went back to the car and kept going on about the magazine - perhaps I baulked at the price, was probably all my pocket money gone - but anyway Mum got fed up with my nattering and told me to go back in the shop and buy it.
It was my first car mag featuring a Countach and still have the mag to this day.

Fast forward to 2007 and I found out the car lived quite local to me. Contacted the guy, told him about the magazine and asked if I could see the car. Two weeks later I found myself driving it!!!!! Amazing moment and one to cherish along with the magazine.
Oh and he didn’t have a copy of the mag so I found one on eBay for him, bought it and gave it to him as a thank you.

Thank you Ian for your kind generosity. Will never be forgotten.
Really love this story David! Good for you ;-)

Anniversary Countach No.1...
I have the name Stewe Cortis written by this car. Could this Anniversary have been owned by powerboat racer Steve Curtis?

Norwegian Bjorn Rune Gjelsten with Britain's Steve Curtis on the throttles of Spirit of Norway (Tencara/Lamborghini) took first place in the German Grand Prix on July 7

Then this Anniversary is probably KLA12429.

[quote=Robert W]My favorite photos are the groups of cars at Portman's Service Centre - I never saw large groups of brand new cars [e.g. Maurice posted a group of brand new Anniversarys earlier, which is great].If anyone has any more groups of new cars, please do post them.

Here are two from Portman in 1991 and 1992 and one from a Lambo Club UK pub meeting in Windlesham in 1991 (note the blue RHD LP400 hidden at the end and the yellow RHD Miura SV):

Dear Robert, this looks like another Iniezione black car, but not a red interior. Any other pics/info?
Is this A8 FAN (GB)? HLA12202

I'e come across another Countach that there has never been a photo of anywhere.

It is a red with black interior LP500S new to someone called Harvey Michael and registered A266SYM and then JR35.

Does anyone have a photo of a Countach on either of these number plates by any chance?

Hope you are all enjoying the hot weather.

Robert
No pictures yet, but I can tell you this is #DLA12604

This was an interesting QV Reg 210 QE, this had a Euro front end but a US rear end with the light and bumper treatment. Factory fit front and unmodified. I think this was from Qatar..I'll try and find a rear end pic.

Brentford late 1987
Hi MaserCoupe, Do you perhaps remember if this black/white car also had yellow headlights?
