1986 Lamborghini Countach Coupe

  • Designed by Bertone
  • Chassis Number: ZA9C005A0GLA12927
  • Engine Number: L507 V4/73 1134
This Countach is a carbureted Quattrovalvole model. Fewer than half of the production run of 631 Countach Quattrovalvole models featured the six double barrel Webers. They offered nearly 10% more power than the fuel-injected examples that were largely imported to the United States to comply with emission laws at the time. No more than 300 carbureted first-generation Countach QVs left Sant'Agata.

This particular example is one of about 30 that were delivered new to Switzerland. It is finished in Rosso Siviglia over Bianco leather, a color scheme matched by both this car and the one that preceded it on the production line, GLA12926.

It is believed that this Countach remained in Switzerland for the bulk of its life. The history of the Countach from birth to 2012 is not fully known; it appeared for sale in Switzerland in June of 2012 showing 35,825 km and registered to the canton of Bern with the plate 'BE 366 U.' It again appeared for sale in Switzerland two years later with approximately the same mileage. In June of 2014, it was acquired by the present owner and shipped to the United States.

Since arriving in the U.S., it has been serviced with items replaced or rebuilt as needed. It currently has just under 36,500 km on the odometer.

The car is largely original.
