Interesting Used Car Of The Week: 1985 Lamborghini Countach LP5000QV

9525709-54If only I had somehow gathered the money to acquire a Lamborghini Countach a few years ago, it would have been the best investment I could have possibly made.

Just three years ago, a Countach of any vintage, in good condition, could have been had for about $120,000. Now, prices have tripled, if not more.

Take this white on red, 1985 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV for example. This piece is in good condition, but by no means the best I’ve ever seen. Yet, the seller wants $505,000 for it.

9525709-56According to the seller, this car was originally delivered in Dubai on September 15, 1985. Then in 1992, the car found a few home in Belgium. Now, this car resides in the Netherlands.

In the last 30 years, it has covered just 22,168 km – that’s a lot less than what I drive in a single year.

The Countach is a rare animal, since only 2,042 units were produced in its 16 year production run. This one is rarer still because it has unique front and rear exterior trim to meet the safety regulations of the U.A.E. The front bumper is similar to the North American-spec Countach, only a bit smaller.

9525709-12Being a LP5000 QV, it is powered by a 5.2L V12 motor that produces 455 hp, sending power to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox.

Here’s the thing, while this Countach might seem very expensive, my guess is, prices are only going to keep climbing up.

So, if you can afford it, >>>this car<<< will serve as a better investment than most houses.
