Extraordinary Lamborghini Countach LP400 periscope with just 7,300 km from new. The vehicle is nearly like new and almost certainly has to be the last example on the planet with such a low true original mileage. With just two previous owners the first of whom was David Thieme president of Essex Petroleum sponsor of the Lotus Formula 1 team in the early 80’s. It was purchased by its current owner in 1982 who never used the vehicle and from 1986 onward put the vehicle on display amongst his sculpture collection in a private showroom.
Overhauled in March 2007 after some important work done in Italy. The paintwork was showing some signs of aging so the owner decided to have the entire body re-sprayed and the result is without fault. The upholstery is all original and in perfect condition. The only fault we noted was the inner roof covering is coming unglued in some points, a fault which can be easily rectified.
The Campagnolo rims are like new and without a scratch (spare wheel included) and the tyres are new.
The magnesium wheel hubs subject to the effects of aging were replaced by new ones.
The power group was removed, opened and all the mechanical elements (engine, gearbox, transmission) were checked and elements replaced as necessary. It’s no exaggeration to state that the vehicle is now in superior mechanical condition than when new.
The overall cost of the work exceeded € 45 000 but the results are truly sublime. The vehicle will be delivered with its original owner’s manual and maintenance booklet.

Its always a privilege to come across a vehicle over 30 years ago in nearly new condition especially if it’s a Countach, which is well on its way to acquire in the version LP400, the classic status accorded to the Lamborghini Miura or the Ferrari Daytona. With just 157 built, its incredibly pure line, supercar performance render the Countach LP400 the most emblematic sports cars of the 1970’s.

Available immediately in France with French registration.
