The car we are offering was sold new in Belgium in October 1989 to Mr J. Peirs, an active member of the Belgian Lamborghini club. He sold it in 1995 to Mr. G. Bloemendal of Rijssen in Holland, an important collector of the brand and the owner of a fiberglass factory. The third owner, Mr. A. Plasschard of Amersfoort, one of the biggest Dutch car collectors then acquired it on 12 March 1998 and was welcomed home by 60 Italian cars in the basement of his property. A reversal of fortune forced him to sell his collection and the Countach was acquired by R. S. Rowell of Rippondon, in England. The car returned to Holland in 2015, to its current owner.
It has always been in this splendid combination of Acapulco blue, with Panna white leather for the seats, but the dashboard, the steering wheel and the gearshift knob are all stretched with blue leather matched to the wool carpet. The odometer reads only 34,500 km since new and the car is equipped with air-conditioning and comes with a certificate from Lamborghini confirming the numbers of different aggregates and the original colors (gearbox # 1806, differential # 1694). The car is shod with Pirelli tires and the dashboard is equipped with a period Alpine radio. The Countach, of which only 424 25th anniversary models were made, is undeniably a highly collectable, high-performance, yet reliable car whose design remains as breathtaking as on the first days when the car made its first rounds in the Piedmont countryside.
