First Lamborghini Countach to sell for over $1m image

The first ever Lamborghini Countach to sell for over 1 million USD has managed to find a new owner at the Bonhams auction recently.

If you had your eyes on a classic Lamborghini and you thought that the Countach was a pretty accessible deal, think again, because the supercar has managed to sell, for the first time ever, for more than 1 million USD. The Lamborghini Countach in question has managed to find a new owner at the Bonhams auction recently who had to pay 1.21 million USD before being able to take his precious ride home.

The Italian supercar has travelled for just over 10,000 miles, or 16,500 kilometers, and it has been part of the current owner’s car collection since 1978, when it was sold to a Swiss man. This is just one of the 150 units to came out with a unique periscope style side mirrors, which is why it was named the Countach “Periscopa”. The Countach has been produced in 2,042 units between 1974 and 1990 and it was offered in a two-door coupe, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power came from a 4.0L, from a 4.8L or from a 5.2L V12 engine. It was eventually replaced by the Diablo.
