PostHeaderIcon Speed Record Holder Lamborghini Countach Up for Auction

1983 Lamborghini Countach LP500S HR

Not that a run of the mill Lamborghini Countach isn’t special enough, but if you are spending big bucks to get one you might as well get one with an X factor. This 1983 Countach LP500S has just that. It is the proud holder of 12 British Outright Speed records and it can now be yours as it’s heading to Silverstone Auctions Race Retro Classic Car Sale this month.

Estimated between £325,000 to £350,000, the record holder 1983 Lamborghini Countach LP500S chassis number ‘12550’ has been recently repaired and restored, which is a good thing, because all those speed record attempts might not have been very gentle on it. The fixes include remedying minor mechanical ailments, new door glass and windscreen, tyres and battery, and last year it even got a full respray.

Speaking of the speed records, which is what makes this Lamborghini Countach that much more special than an ordinary one, they were set back in ’83 by racing driver Barry Robinson and his co-driver, Alex Postan, who took the car up to 180 mph at Millbrook test track. Included with the car is the history file included detailed invoices of works completed along with the MoT certificate, magazine articles, manuals and service records and information about the RAC Speed Records.

“To be offering a speed record Lamborghini at our Race Retro Sale is an absolute privilege, and it has not one but 12 British speed records,” comments Guy Lee-Milne, general manager and classic car specialist, Silverstone Auction. “This Countach has the performance, racing driver provenance and of course the icon, dramatic looks.”

PostHeaderIcon EVO Looks Back At The Lamborghini Countach: Video

In the annals of Lamborghini’s long and storied history, no car stirred the imaginations of children quite like the Countach. From its outlandish design (at that time) to its incredible 4.0-liter V-12 engine, the Countach was, and still is, the supercar of our dreams. Throughout the course of its life, the Countach spawned numerous versions, none more special than the 82-unit Series III LP400 S.

One of the 82 Series III LP 400 S models is now in the headlines because it’s set to be auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s at its auction in Paris on February 3, 2016. It’s expected to sell for at least $490,000 and it’s history is as unique as the model itself. According to RM Sotheby’s, this yellow Countach Series III LP 400 S was originally built with a red paint finish for a customer in Switzerland. The car somehow found itself in the U.S. after that, before once again crossing the Atlantic, finding itself in the U.K. It’s had quite a globe-trotting experience, and yet, the mere sight of it is enough for bidders to feverishly make attempts at scoring the car in the upcoming auction.

But, before it finds a new owner, Evo Magazine found itself in possession of the car and, not one to let an opportunity like this pass, it went about and took it for a spin. By the standards of modern supercars, the Countach falls woefully short in a number of aspects. It’s a little harder to drive, the brakes aren’t as good, and the cabin design leaves a lot to be desired. But, none of that matters because this is the Lamborghini Countach, and this particular one is a rare example of the iconic model.

It’s the real definition of a legacy car that introduced Lamborghini to a new generation of car aficionados. I should know because I’m one of those who had posters of this breathtaking exotic in the walls of my bedroom back in the 90s.


PostHeaderIcon Blast from the Past: EVO Tests Lamborghini Countach

Lamborghini Countach-evo

Thanks to the UK’s prestigious auction houses, the boys at EVO Magazine are having a great time these days, getting to drive some of the world’s most iconic – not to mention expensive – classic car. So after sampling a Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing, they now get to have a go in 1981 Lamborghini Countach.

This is the same Lamborghini Countach we reported on earlier, going under the hammer at a Silverstone Auctions event with an estimate of between £200,000 and £250,000. The yellow color makes this particular example look more modern than an 80s car, which some may like while others would count it as a negative.

Lamborghini Countach is often credited as the world’s first proper supercar, the original pin-up machine, the one that started it all. And it sort of is, if we don’t take into account the fact that it Lamborghini’s other amazing creation, the Miura, that invented the whole boutique super car niche. The Countach is still a pretty impressive thing to have though, and a safe investment, too.

PostHeaderIcon Auction Find: 1981 Lamborghini Countach 400S

1981 Lamborghini Countach-1

Lamborghini Countach is without a doubt one of the most desirable, and highly collectible, classic cars in the world. Amazingly though, the prices have not yet gone insane with this car and you can still pick one of these, like this one here, at auctions for a reasonable sum of money.

Granted, the estimate on this 1981 Lamborghini Countach 400S is between £200,000 and £250,000, and it’ll probably end up selling for more than that. But still, compared to similarly significant cars, especially contemporary Ferraris, it doesn’t sound that bad.

1981 Lamborghini Countach-2

Now, there are a few niggles, let’s say, about this Countach that might put off the hard-core collectors looking for perfection. It is one of only seven right-hand drive examples ever produced, and it has covered 61,155 km (38,221 miles). The Pearl Yellow exterior with Oatmeal Leather with a Black Suede dash top also may not be to everyone’s taste. And it’s said to be in just ‘good’ condition, not great. But hey, at the end of the day, it’s still a Countach!

1981 Lamborghini Countach-3

Commenting on the car ahead of the sale, Nick Whale, managing director of Silverstone Auctions, said: “The Lamborghini Countach is truly an iconic supercar and a car that every collector should take the opportunity to own at some point. This particular example is a fabulous piece of 1970’s road art and is worthy of consideration, especially as a low-mileage 1981 LP400S-Series III has recently changed hands in the International market for a substantial sum, and other LP400S’ appear to be changing hands for figures well in excess of our guide price here.”

PostHeaderIcon 1979 Lamborghini Countach Shines at Alain Class

1979 Lamborghini Countach-0

They don’t call Alain Class Motors the world’s best showroom for nothing. These guys are not just about the latest super cars. They also have a passion for classic cars, as shown with the new addition to their magnificent collection, a 1979 Lamborghini Countach.

Preserved in excellent condition, the unique Lamborghini Countach residing at Alain Class is finished in purple and features a blue interior, both of which looking almost brand-new. This combination makes this Countach an extremely rare version of extremely rare classic super car. Another thing this car has going for it is the mileage, which is only 38,700 km.

As for the technical details, the 1979 Lamborghini Countach is powered by a 4.0 liter DOHC V12 engine with six Weber horizontal two-barrel carburetors, developing 375 horsepower. These engines are prone to catch fire if you push them, but that is beside the point since no Countach owner actually drives the car. They just ogle it from time to time.

The car also features a five-speed manual transmission, sophisticated – for its time – suspension with A-arm up front and multi-link setup out back, and four wheel brake discs. And yes, everything is original and in tip-top shape.

PostHeaderIcon Six Lamborghini Supercars Will Be Auctioned In June

While seeing Lamborghinis cross the block at auctions across America is far from rare, it’s not too often that the same event gets to sell six of them. This rare display will be hosted by Mecum’s sale in Seattle on June 5th to 6th, where Lamborghini enthusiasts will get to buy — or at least admire — six Italian bulls built from 1989 to 2010.

Yes, there won’t be any Miuras or Espadas to ogle at, but the Lambo lot includes a late-edition Countach and a bundle of Diablos and Murcielagos, some of which are very rare.

The oldest supercar on sale is a 1989 Countach 25th Anniversary. Part of the limited, 658-unit edition that marked the end of the nameplate, this car is also one of only 187 examples produced with fuel injection for the U.S. and Canadian markets. The Bianco White-painted Countach has 28,420 miles on its odo.

Next in line is a black 1992 Diablo. Though it’s only a standard model, it does feature a rear wing, SV wheels, and Pirelli P Zero tires. With only 11,643 miles on the clock, it should attract a few bidders. The second Diablo to go under the hammer is a 1999 model year Roadster. Significantly more powerful than the early coupe, it has 30,188 miles on the odometer and just received a $12,500 major service. It features a front lift system, navigation, polished wheels, and an aftermarket stereo head unit with six-disc CD player and remotes.

PostHeaderIcon The "Kung Fury" Countach

Even though the movie won’t actually be coming out for a while, Kung Fury has already attracted quite a lot of attention (over 5 million views!) for a Kickstarter-funded Swedish film from a director that few people have heard of. But the sheer force of the film’s ’80s nostalgia is powerful, and instrumental in this is the Lamborghini Countach shown in the music video for True Survivor, which has a tie-in with the movie. The song is performed by David Hasselhoff, perhaps looking even more ’80s than when he did Knight Rider, if that’s possible. The Countach was such an icon of the ’80s that Kung Fury director David Sandberg has decided to tell us a bit about the car in the video.

The bad news first: this is actually a replica car, albeit a painstakingly accurate (in most respects) one. The car was built by two men, simply identified as Daniel and Fredrik, and it took them 10 years to complete. The frame was built to the same specifications as the original, and the body comes from Mirage, a replica kit-car company in the UK that has made some of the better replica bodies you’ll ever see. This one is Mirage’s specialty, the LP 5000 Quattrovalvole.

PostHeaderIcon David Hasselhoff 's New "True Survivor" Videoclip Features Lamborghini Countach: Video

There comes a point when using irony, when you have committed yourself so fully to the premise that you actually cross back over into sincerity. This video depicts that exact moment. It is a music video for the song “True Survivor,” by David Hasselhoff, which is also a tie in with the upcoming Swedish action comedy film “Kung Fury.” The Kickstarter-funded film, which is being being made by a production company called Laser Unicorns, is an attempt at making the most absurdly overblown ’80s cop movie ever.

The movie certainly looks as though it will accomplish its goal, but this video pushes the ’80s theme so much that it actually just starts to make sense. The song is really absurd, but no more absurd than the rest of the pop music from 30 years ago. And David Hasselhoff singing it in front of a Lamborghini Countach with the sleeves of his jacket pushed up and the fog machine going just looks fitting. In fact, without the hilarious footage from the film in the video, featuring people riding dinosaurs and Adolf Hitler (also know in the movie as “Kung Fuhrer”), you might not even realize that any of this is a joke.
