There is perhaps no more widely recognisable or iconic car than the Lamborghini Countach. Much has been written about the car, sometimes positive, sometimes negative, but the one thing that is impossible to do is ignore it. Developed as a successor to the remarkable and stunning Miura, the Countach created an equally large, if not larger stir when first introduced. The idea that such a totally futuristic and over the top car could possibly be intended for production was inconceivable, but in Lamborghini`s tradition, the car was readied for production largely unaltered.
The most desirable cars are the earliest so called `periscopio` models, a unique feature was the car’s periscope-like rearview mirror: a section of the bodywork in the roof was cut away and replaced with glass and a rear-facing scoop, to allow for some greater rearview visibility.
DD Classics is pleased to offer this iconic Lamborghini Countach ‘Periscopio’ for sale. Presented in the head turning combination of Nero with Light Tan hide. Our car was upgraded in period with the iconic LP400S bodywork upgrades and remains in excellent mechanical condition. Accompanying the car is a large quantity of original parts including seats, instruments, suspension parts etc, etc which will make it a relatively easy process to convert it back to its original Periscopio specification. Our interesting Periscopio has just received a recommissioning mechanical service by one of the leading UK Lamborghini specialists and issued with a new MOT. If you are looking for a Countach to experience out on the roads, this could be the one for you!
Just 150 Periscopio examples were built in total, our car is chassis number 1120034 making it one of the earliest to leave the Lamborghini factory. Today, these cars are exceptionally rare and eminently collectable, early viewing is essential to get your hands on such a well priced example.
