Classic Car Overview
1986 LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH 5000 QUATTROVALVOLE DOWNDRAFT
--Black with Champagne leather, Tan carpeting, 32,000 kilometers (19,000 miles), 5.0 liter 4-valve V12 engine with Downdraft Carburetors, 5-speed manual transmission, Factory Lamborghini Certificate of Configuration, Documented by Valentino Balboni.
Widely regarded as the most outrageous car ever built. As a result no car before or since has the presence of a Countach. While most of the 610 Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole models imported into the USA from 1985 to 1988 were outfitted with a Bosch Electronic fuel-injection system, only 13 examples fitted with downdraft carburetors arrived at U.S. ports before the EPA and DOT banned Lamborghini from importing them. This 1986 model is one such carbureted example.
Over the years, the Countach evolved, gaining in strength and power as there were successive increases in the displacement. Regardless, the 5000 QV downdraught carb cars are the most powerful of the Countach model range from beginning to end of production with its 5.2 liter V-12 engine with four valves per cylinder, Weber downdraught carburetors and a power output of 455 bhp.
This exceptional low mileage Countach 5000 QV was sold new by Baltimore, Maryland Lamborghini dealer, Motor Coach Sales to its first owner, Mr. B. Ellis of Bethesda, Maryland on April 16, 1986 with 146 miles/237 km test/delivery miles. Mr. Ellis continued to use the Countach, consistently servicing it with Certified Lamborghini dealers (all service records included ) through October 1994 when it was traded to well-known exotic car dealer Motorcars International, Springfield, Missouri with 15,425 miles/24,989 km
