The Countach presented here, chassis number 1120172, is the 86th first-generation LP 400 Periscopio produced. Finished in the striking shade of Blu Tahiti over a Tobacco leather interior, with air conditioning and two external rearview mirrors, it was completed on 22 December 1975. The car was then delivered to Carrie Eugene, the official Lamborghini dealer and importer in Canada, on 29 January 1976.
The Countach’s first owner was Paul Marshall, of Toronto, Ontario. Though a paraplegic, Marshall did not let his disability stop him from enjoying his new Countach. He had hand controls installed and drove the car frequently around his native Toronto, where the spaceship-like Countach was an otherworldly sight during the waning days of disco.
The car’s second custodian, also a resident of Toronto, purchased the Countach from Paul Marshall through a friend in the early 1990s. He continued to use the car regularly for the next few years before placing it into static storage, following a full restoration. The Lamborghini was properly stored in a climate-controlled facility, with the fluids drained, and there it remained for the next 20 years.
After nearly two decades of storage, the Countach was awoken from its slumber and brought back to life by a Lamborghini specialist in Toronto. It was then taken to the renowned Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2013 and quickly earned the judges’ admiration, placing second in a hotly contested Lamborghini class. Two years later, the Countach featured in an episode of Jerry Seinfeld's “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” along with fellow comedian Jim Carrey.
Acquired by the consignor in 2017, this spectacular Countach remains in beautiful condition with its factory-correct Blu Tahiti exterior over a wonderfully crafted replacement interior in biscuit leather.
