  • One of just 321 examples produced from 1982 to 1985

  • Single-family ownership since 1984; purchased through Royal Motorcar Corporation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida


Ferruccio Lamborghini introduced his exotic Countach prototype at the 1971 Geneva Auto Show. The cars 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. There is perhaps no more widely recognizable or iconic supercar than the dramatically styled Lamborghini Countach, the poster car of a generation.

This rare 1984 LP5000 S was delivered new to Germany to MLG Motor-Leasing. It was imported to the United States by Tom Joseph Enterprises of North Canton, Ohio who quickly sold the car to Royal Motorcar Corporation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Royal Motorcar subsequently sold the Lamborghini to Alexandre Theriot Jr. on 23 March 1984. Since then, it has remained under single-family ownership. It is offered by the family of the late owner with 48,005 kilometers (29,830 miles) displayed on the odometer at the time of cataloguing.

Finished in red over black, the cars paint show signs of wear throughout, as do the Route O.Z. wheels, which are wrapped in Pirelli tires. The interior is trimmed in black leather, covering the bucket seats, console, doors, door sills, steering wheel, dashboard, and shift knob. Period upgrades to the Lamborghini include an aftermarket alarm system, a Denon AM/FM radio with cassette, as well as an Autobahn Covert radar detector. It should be noted that this Countach was last registered and on the road in 2004. Having been stored since then, it would make a good candidate for restoration.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/0221.
