If you grew up in the 70s or 80s, you probably had dreams of driving a Lamborghini with one of Charlie’s Angels riding shotgun. But now, decades later, you probably think that dream is lost. Friend, it is not.

RM Auctions is putting one of the rarest finds in the automotive world up for bid: a 1979 Lamborghini Countach LP400S Series I. Only 50 of these legends were ever built, and the specs are almost as glorious as they were 35 years ago: 375 hp, 3,929 cc DOHC V-12 engine with six Weber horizontal two-barrel carburetors, and a five-speed manual transmission. Amazingly, this one only has 537 miles on it, and it’s been under a single-family ownership since it was new, with all the original tools, spare tire, and delivery paperwork. Now go find Cheryl Ladd and see what she’s doing for Labor Day. Oh, and she’s 63, btw. [Purchase]
