Features

1989 Lamborghini Anniversary Countach s/n 12428 comes with a Lamborghini badged plaque stating it was built new for Lee A. Iacocca and the owner’s manual is signed Lee A. Iacocca. Comes with the US version owner’s manual, the parts book and both English and Italian workshop manual. The car is cosmetically attractive with nice older paint that remains in excellent condition overall, with a few small surface blemishes including a handful of chips. The body is straight, the paint glossy, and the panel fit is consistent with how these cars were originally delivered. The trim is excellent throughout, as are the modular OZ wheels. The glass and lights are also in excellent shape overall. The car has the correct Carello front fog lamps. The interior is in good original condition. The leather on the dashboard, seats, center console, sills, and door panels is in excellent shape with the expected wear to the driver’s upper seat bolster. The carpets are also excellent. The original instruments, switches, and controls are in excellent shape and the air conditioning blows ice cold. Just completed a 90 mile shakedown to check all systems and now has 26,238 kms (16,303 miles). Countach s/n 12428 runs and drives well and is surprisingly user-friendly. The motor is well-tuned and tractable, sounds great and the car is equipped with two new catalysts and a stainless steel exhaust system. The gearbox shifts well, with good synchromesh. The clutch is heavy but progressive and is no worse than that in a Testarossa from the same time period. The brakes have good bite and are effective, while the suspension controls the car well. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an extensively serviced high-end driver level Countach. Finished in its period-appropriate color, the car has a stunning presence. It has been the recent recipient of extensive mechanical work and has also had cosmetic freshening to bring it to its current condition. A fundamentally sound example, this car is an ideal example with which to enjoy the truly unparalleled Countach ownership and driving experience.
