A 1979 Lamborghini Countach LP400S Series I finished in a bright shade of blue is set to go under the hammer at the RM Auctions sales event in January. The car is one of just 50 examples ever produced and this particular car is the second last U.S. specification vehicle which rolled out of Lamborghini’s Italian factory.
For those that didn’t know, the Countach LP400S was unveiled four years after the Countach LP400 was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1974. The Countach LP400S maintained the same overall look of the original but did receive some tweaks to the body work to make the car appear more muscular. Elsewhere, the suspension geometry was completely revised alongside new wheels and wider Pirelli tyres being fitted.
In total, three different series of the Lamborghini Countach LP400S were created with the Series I being the rarest. The Series I cars are characterised with famous Campagnolo Bravo wheels as well as larger Stewart Warner gauges.
This particular 1979 Lamborghini Countach LP400S Series I is chassis number 1121096 and not only was the second last U.S.-spec car made but also the third last Series I example ever produced.
