    The LHD metallic yellow 88.5 JLA12345 ready at Sant Agata alongside another Downdraft headed to the UK, the car was new to a young member of a Middle Est Royal family and had the same safety panel discussed in the previous post even though it didn't actually go to the Middle East.

    any clues to this car’s identity? Are you sure it is 1985? You said before it is with its first owner. Might it be a LHD to RHD conversion?

    All up in the air, but the owner registered it at the show as a 1985 so the photographer noted same.

    Ah, how time flies, we shot that @ 2 years ago, the Countach gets plenty of exercise, the GTO, not-so-much.

    GLA12997 on the mean streets of our neighborhood post-restoration, I'm already having withdrawal symptoms and miss driving it, I may have to go into the garage and turn the key.

    I can fully understand, just stepping into the Garage and have a look whether
    she is still there increases the motivation :)

    Stéphane Ratel had them custom-made for just one event in the snow @ St Moritz, it got cancelled as you know, so off they will come to be replaced with Pirelli Cinturato P7s.

    The Godfathers.

    From L-R, Messrs Mauro Forghieri, Daniele Audetto & Ubaldo Sgarzi in 1987.

    Ubaldo: Mauro, did you bring the cash?

    Mauro: Ubaldo, what do you think is in this briefcase?

    Daniele: Mauro how do you like the special number plate I put on your car?
