LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1984 Lamborghini Countach 5000S
Ferruccio Lamborghini introduced his exotic Countach prototype at the 1971 Geneva Auto Show. The car’s wedge-shaped styling—created by Marcello Gandini of the Bertone Design Studio—seized the attention of the automobile cognoscenti. The powerful mid-engine sports car was wide and low with sharply angled panels, “scissor” doors, and a forward-placed passenger compartment to allow for the large V-12 engine. The body was light and strong with aircraft-grade aluminum skin over a tubular space frame. Once production began in 1973, the distinctive styling put the Countach in its own class. The combination of standout design, performance characteristics, and its stratospheric price tag quickly earned the Countach its “supercar” status. Throughout its production life, 1971–1990, the Countach was continuously refined. A key enhancement came in 1982 with the debut of the LP500 S model and its larger V12 4.8L 375-horsepower engine capable of taking the car to a top speed of 170 mph.
This rare 1984 LP500 S is one of only 321 units ever produced and was factory ordered in a highly desirable specification. This car was imported by Sports Car Studio in Ormond Beach, Florida in November of 1983, as shown on the door jamb tag. It is presented in the stunning combination of Black with Red leather interior as it left the factory in Sant’Agata. It has been collector owned and maintained since new with only 8,602 miles (13,844 km’s) showing on the odometer.
The Countach is one of the most recognizable sports cars ever produced; it's the Cannonball, the poster on the wall, the Miami Vice speed machine. The Countach is an Icon and must have for Italian car collectors. With only 321 LP500 S models ever produced and a great factory spec, as well finished highly sought after color combination, this car would certainly be a standout in any collection !
