I was surprised by how quiet the Countach sounded.

I think that is likely my phone. It was loud in person.

The loudest of the 3 cars we moved was the Corvette Stingray ZR2. Proper roared!

Some of you may have seen the thread of my late father-in-laws cars. He was one of the most respected classic car dealers in the UK and well known in the car world.

He bought and sold around 50,000 cars in his lifetime and held 3 amazing cars in his private collection that he has owned for many years, a 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S, a Lamborghini Countach LP400S and a 1971 Corvette Stingray ZR2. There were also around 20 business cars that were left too, that are being auction in April.

Anyway the 2 Lambos are off to auction at Bond Street in December. It would be amazing if these ended up in the hands of a proper Lamborghini fan.

Good luck at auction. Can you advise general condition of both cars. Is there work to be done?

They have both been stored for a pretty long time. The Countach only has 6k kms on the clock and the Miura 14k miles.

The probably both need engine reconditioning, but other than that are in good condition in my uneducated view. They were my father-in-laws pride and joys and he's owned the Miura since 1995 and the Countach since the 80's.

If you are interested, I know people have been contacting Bonhams to view the cars and check on condition.

Thanks for the info. I'll keep an eye on the proceedings.
