To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., the company designed and built what would become the ultimate Countach. Redesigned as much as possible without forcing re-homologation, the 25th Anniversario proved to be the most successful variation of the wild Countach. Based on the Quattrovalvole chassis, the Countach had a re-designed front bumper, rear wing scoops, rear lights, and an added rear bumper. The interior was entirely re-done, with increased width and comfort in the seats, and air conditioning was made a standard feature. Powered by a 5,167-cubic centimetre V-12 operated by a five-speed manual drivetrain, the end result was a modern supercar that could be comfortably driven every day. The 25th Anniversario edition offered here is presented in classic red over beige leather and shows less than 35,000 kilometres.

Per celebrare il 25° anniversario dalla fondazione di Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., la società ha progettato e costruito quella che sarebbe diventata la Countach finale. Rivista il più possibile, senza però rendere necessaria una nuova omologazione, la 25 Anniversary si è rivelata l’evoluzione più di successo della selvaggia Countach. Basata sul telaio della Quattrovalvole, la Countach Anniversary aveva un paraurti anteriore ridisegnato, un’ala posteriore a coltello, luci posteriori integrate ed un nuovo paraurti posteriore. L’interno è stato completamente rifatto, offrendo maggiore larghezza e sedili più confortevoli, mentre l’aria conidizionata è stata resa di serie. Mossa da un motore V-12 di 5167 cc, abbinato al cambio meccanico a 5 rapporti, la Anniversary è una supercar moderna, in grado di poter essere guidata ogni giorno. La 25 Anniversary offerta all’asta è verniciata nella classica combinazione di Rosso su pelle Beige, ed ha percorso meno di 35.000 chilometri.
