The first production vehicle was sold to an Australian buyer in 1974 as the LP400. With its rakish styling and those tires, the LP400 had the lowest drag coefficient of any Lamborghini Countach for sale. With some aggressive modifications to the concept’s styling, the LP400 featured narrow tires typical of the period and bulky bumpers to accommodate safety standards.
Debuting in 1971 at the Geneva Auto Show, the Italian bull made its way into the automotive spotlight with radical and trapezoidal shapes in the form of the Countach 5000S. The car was groundbreaking, setting a new precedent in the supercar world with the introduction of the 5-liter V12 engine. Following the mid-mounted V12 structure of previous supercars
, the cabin located even further forward to accommodate a larger engine and was the first example of a Lamborghini with the signature scissor doors. These came about as a result of the wide tubular chassis making conventional doors an insurmountable obstacle in tight parking lots and garages. Designed by the Bertone design house, this car pioneered this new shape and made it popular through the 1970s, ‘80s, and into the ‘90s as the model evolved.
The 1989, 25th Anniversary Countach, version was offered in honor of the company’s 25th anniversary. With improved aerodynamics through controversial changes to the exterior bodywork and bumpers, as well as the use of the widest wheels and tires ever to be put on a factory car, contributed to improved performance with an acceleration of 0-62 mph in 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph, compared to the LP400’s 5.4 second 0-62 mph time.
Due to the low production numbers, only 2,042 cars in total were built from 1974-1990, meaning selections of used cars in almost any variation is limited. Depending on timing and market demand, we offer the listings for this car can be limited. If any vehicle listings do not display a Lamborghini Countach price or specific details, please contact the dealer via our contact form. Look for low mileage cars to hold their value with original equipment when shopping for an Italian bull.
