1988 LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH 5000QV
CALL FOR PRICE
This 1988 Lamborghini Countach (Chassis: ZA9CA05A4JLA12334) is one of 610 QV models produced and spent its first 25 years in Florida and Georgia before later returning to Florida, where it was acquired by the selling dealer. Finished in red over a black leather interior, the car now shows 31k kilometers (~19k miles) and is powered by a 5.2L quad-cam V12 paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Service in 2015 and 2017 totaled over $28k and included rebuilding the clutch, converting the air conditioning to R134 refrigerant, and adjusting the injection system. The fuel injectors were also replaced along with the rear main seal, water pump seal, clutch slave cylinder, oil pump seals, spark plug wires, distributor seals, and more as outlined below.
This Countach is now offered with recent service records, a clean Carfax report, owner’s manuals, tools, and a clean Florida title. The dashboard has been signed by Valentino Balboni, the longtime chief test driver for Lamborghini. This example is finished in red and is said to show evidence of various touch-ups, as well as chips, cracks, and other imperfections in the paint. A scuff on the left rear wheel arch was incurred during a recent parking mishap and is shown close up in the gallery.
Two-piece 15” OZ wheels wear Pirelli tires measuring 225/50 up front and 345/35 out back. US-market rear lighting is retained, though both the front and rear of the car are absent of rubber safety bumpers. The interior is trimmed in black leather with matching carpets and branded floor mats, and additional equipment includes a leather-wrapped Raid steering wheel, a gated shifter, power locks, and a cassette stereo. The factory air conditioning system was converted to use R134 refrigerant in 2015. A new receiver/dryer installed at that time, and an A/C service was performed in 2017.
Service completed by Prestige Imports of North Miami Beach, Florida in 2017 included adjusting the CIS, flushing the clutch and brake hydraulics, and rebuilding the alternator. A new clutch slave cylinder was also installed along with new distributor seals, water pump seal and shaft bearing kit, drive axle gaskets, front hood lift cylinder, and passenger door lift cylinder.
