One of the Countach`s is a very rare Anniversary edition, one of just 627 made to celebrate Lamborghini’s 25th birthday, and the most refined and powerful version of the Countach produced before it was superseded by the Diablo.

Borned in 1989, the car was Designed by none other than Horacio Pagani, creator of the iconic Zonda. The 25th Anniversary edition features bespoke wheel arch extensions, extended air intake ducts and a new rear engine cover design, as well as increased torque and performance with a top speed of 185 mph.

Now offered for sale for the first time in 16 years, this particular right-hand drive example was previously owned by Cleo Roberts, who went on to become the wife of legendary automotive designer, racing driver, and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby.

This Lamborghini is expected to achieve £250,000 to £300,000 at auction having covered just 8,000 miles from new, and is presented in its original colour combination of Rosso with Bianco leather.
