1983 Lamborghini Countach LP500S
I am extremely privileged to present this 1983 Lamborghini Countach LP500S. Finished in the classic Rosso Siviglia (red) exterior over Beige (tan) interior, and complimented by gold wheels and the optional rear wing, this side-draft carbureted Countach has had only four owners since new in its 31 year history.
Originally sold in Italy, the car was delivered to its first owner in Houston, TX. The second owner purchased the car with 5,675 km (3,700 miles) in 1994 and decided to perform an extensive engine-out service, as well as a complete repaint from bare metal using the correct Glasurit paint. (Extensive details on the service work and repaint are available upon request.)
Since the work in 1994, the car has been driven less than 5,000 km, and is currently showing 10,390 km (6,456 miles). The interior is completely original and shows as new. All gauges and electronics are functional. The paint, undercarriage, and engine compartment are in show quality condition. The original tools, manuals, all receipts, factory invoice, bill of sale, EPA/DOT federalization paperwork, and even the Lufthansa cargo ticket (from when the car was transported to the US in 1983) are present.
Sphere Motorsports in Houston recently completed a full maintenance service on the car. All servicing is now up to date, and the car is ready to be enjoyed on the road and as part of a discriminating owner's collection.
This Countach is quite possibly one of the finest examples of an LP500S in existence. Cars of this quality rarely are offered for sale, and the early carbureted Countach is the most desirable and valued. For more information, please contact Michael Foertsch at email@example.com or 832-617-0494.
