for sale by Furlonger in October 2023 with 11,918 miles for £1,499,990, the advert read:
This Countach LP 400 Periscopio is just the 3rd car that was imported to the UK, being dispatched from the factory on May 14th 1975 and delivered to UK Lamborghini agent, Maltin Car Concessionaires in Henley-on-Thames. First registered LGF 849N on May 22nd, the Countach was purchased by Dan Horrocks, a property developer from Bolton.
We have been fortunate to know the car since 1988 when its 2nd owner (of just 4 in total) was a good friend of Simon, using a mutual friend for maintenance in the late 80s and early 90s. This keeper was an avid enthusiast, who would even use the car for track days and European road trips, before eventually selling the car to a friend and fellow UK-based collector.
Following long-term storage, we would eventually cross paths with #1120094 again in 2014 when we were tasked to find a LP400 Periscopio for a client; a car that we could subsequently have restored. At the time the vehicle was painted in silver and had been initially prepared for restoration works, including the removal of the original engine and gearbox and cosmetic finished in the engine bay and boot areas in the correct satin black finish.
Once we agreed a deal with our client, we commissioned a full restoration on the vehicle with works carried out between ourselves and noted marque specialist Mike Pullen of Carrera Sport. Please speak to one of the sales team for an exhaustive list of the works that were carried out, but they included a comprehensive suspension rebuild, overhaul of the braking system, full engine rebuild, new air conditioning system fitted and gearbox and differential overhauls. These mechanical works were complemented by extensive cosmetic preparations including a repaint in Rosso Miura with Nera Pella trim and new glass and rubbers throughout..
