This LP5000QV is an immaculate example of one of the most desirable variants of the Countach. As one of the very first 5000QV’s delivered to Australia, this example was flown into Sydney via Air Italia in July 1985 and sold new out of “The Toy Shop” in North Sydney.
As 1 of less than 100 right-hand-drive examples built, this vehicle presents in completely original, un-restored condition. It presents in the classic colour combination of Rosso Siviglia over a black interior, capturing the essence of the Italian Supercar. The paint is virtually un-marked, and the interior is in excellent condition, still boasting the original leather upholstery. This Countach has travelled only 69,970km since new, and has been meticulously maintained over the years, which can be verified by the extensive documentation remaining with the car. As a result, the powerful carburetted 5.1L quad-valve V12 is in turn-key condition and performs as beautifully as you would expect from such an exotic.
This example has impeccable provenance, complemented by its original stamped service book and owner’s manual, a comprehensive documented history folder including information on all previous owners and all service and maintenance receipts. The factory spare tyre, factory tool kit, jack and rubber straps are all in place as original. A near-perfect example of one of the last “raw” supercars, this highly desirable 5000QV was THE car of the 80’s and is ultra-collectable today. As one of the most recognisable and iconic vehicles ever produced, this car is a true time capsule, a failsafe investment and would complement any collection.
