To this day, the Countach remains one of the most iconic vehicles that Lamborghini has ever built. As the quintessential poster car of the ’80s, it’s adorned the bedroom walls of countless auto enthusiasts, acting as the pretext to a lifelong passion for all things petrol-powered. For those who grew up in the Italian wedge era then, Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auction is a must-see event.
That’s because this 1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition is just one of the lots being offered for sale. Among some 657 examples in total, it’s even more distinguished by the fact that it’s a single-owner vehicle with only 2,644 miles on the clock. In other words, it’s a true time capsule, still wearing its factory Siviglia Red paint and black leather interior whilst boasting period options like an Alpine sound system and a massive rear wing. What’s more, as part of the 25th Anniversary designation, this Countach represents over two decades of the platform’s development, sporting a 455hp 5.2L V12 along with some considerable stylistic touchups courtesy of Horacio Pagani himself. When you consider that the car even comes with its original tool kit, owner’s manual, and service records, it’s no wonder that it could fetch over $275,000.
