Lot #638 - Offered by Gas Monkey Garage, this Countach 25th Anniversary Edition is a very honest and highly original example. Completed during June 1989 by Nuova Automobili Lamborghini SpA at the company's storied facilities in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy, it is finished in black paint over cream leather upholstery, complete with the optional rear wing and Alpine high-end audio system. Shipped new to the United States, the Countach was purchased new on October 30, 1990, from authorized Lamborghini dealer F.C. Kerbeck & Sons. The 25th Anniversary Countach, launched for 1989, celebrated Lamborghini's silver anniversary and succeeded the 5000QV as the car's triumphant final iteration, with more than 500 updates in all. Horacio Pagani spearheaded the design, including integral front-brake cooling ducts, a slightly raised nose and a new rear bumper. Lower body cladding was fitted, and the radiator air intakes behind the car's iconic scissor doors were now body-color and incorporated leading-edge strakes. Suspension updates and new Pirelli P-Zero tires enhanced the car's already massive grip. Interior revisions included power windows, new power-adjustable seats, a new steering wheel and improved air conditioning. The 25th Anniversary model was a most fitting swan song for the long-lived Countach, with only 657 built in all. A large file of all records from new documents the history of this very special car from purchase to the present time, including the Window Sticker, Bill of Sale, all purchase paperwork, payment check stubs, insurance paperwork and all service records to 2015. It was owned by a very meticulous individual who had the Countach faithfully serviced only at the selling dealer and maintained it in unmodified factory-original condition. Overall, the Countach can be summarized as a top-tier, preservation-class example, retaining a good portion of the original paint and all original upholstery, glass and trim. The paint has aged and shows typical light crazing in some areas, which nonetheless provides an age-appropriate patina and sense of honesty. This Countach further benefits from a recent major service performed during 2015, ensuring its strong drivability and performance. It is complete with the original owner's manual and books in their leather storage pouch, plus the tool roll, jack, spare assembly and an extraordinary document and history file, complete with clean CARFAX and AutoCheck reports. 5-speed manual transmission.VIN:
