Other Information: for sale at Graham Turner (Motor Cars) Ltd for £1.2m, the advert read:

One of just 10 original RHD Countach LP400 ‘Periscopicas’ built for the UK market and one of only 157 in total, chassis number 1120106 left the Sant’Agata Bolognese works in the summer of 1975. Famously the Countach chosen to feature alongside celebrated Lamborghini test driver Valentino Balboni in a series of photographs by Car Magazine’s Doug Blain, the car was subsequently despatched to the UK importer, Berlinetta Italia on 26th June 1975, and registered ‘RU27’ to its first owner.

Specified from new in Arancio Miura, with Senape interior trim, a scheme the car still wears today, 1120106 featured on the front cover of the August 1977 issue of Thoroughbred & Classic Cars. The car later featured in an early edition of Classic & Sportscar magazine (May 1982), by which time it had been re-registered ‘3 DUU’.

1120106 changed hands in 1986 and has remained in the same ownership ever since.

The car has further featured in a number of books on both Lamborghini in general and the Countach in particular.

Having covered just 35,000 miles from new and having enjoyed decades of uninterrupted and cossetted ownership, this LP400 remains not just in superb condition, but in superb original condition, which must make it almost unique. Right down to its complete and exceptionally rare tool kit especially designed to fit into the spare wheel.

In a world where increasing numbers of these cars have had the very soul restored out of them (and all too often, not very well), 1120106 stands out as a true reference example, correct in every respect, of what it must have been like to lay eyes on one of the most extraordinary cars in the history of the automobile.

PRICE: £ 1,200,000 GBP

The car is presently UK registered..
