Auction Block: 1979 Lamborghini Countach LP400 S Series

Dec 9, 2016

There are a lot of supercars making their way onto the streets today. But we still find ourselves pining for the ones from the posters that graced the walls of our childhood bedrooms. Unfortunately, so few of them still exist anywhere other than in private collections and the owners of those collections are as covetous of their vehicles as Gollum was of The One Ring. So when something classic emerges from the darkness, we tend to take note. Especially when that something is a Lamborghini Countach.

This 375 brake-horsepower V-12 LP400 S Series from 1979 is going to auction via RM Southeby’s at the tail end of January of next year. Originally painted Blu Acapulco, this now-black beauty has seen a bit of work to keep it running. In 2002, its drivetrain was rebuilt, the valves were replaced, and the valve springs were reconditioned – amongst a handful of other things. Still, the car is largely factory original. Which also means it lacks many restrictive additions that were typical of this vehicle’s imported brethren. The truth is, this is likely the closest to an original anyone can get without time travel. And you can expect that it will sell for a price reflective of that. [Purchase]
