    This car was painted a very special Volkswagen grey'ish blue, and a special blue interior on request by the first owner. The car is yellow nowadays.

    did you drive it there? Yes the roads up here are amazing. Currently in N Carolina. Aprox Murphy. Blue ridge Hiawassa. Lake. Thinking of shipping my car here at some point. (Florida to N Carolina is extremely boring reg driving a Countach) anyway enjoy your time. How is the FI restoration coming?

    Shipped a few cars. The roads there are amazing. Best time ive ever had with the CT in last 20 years. Incredible on the twisty sweepers pf the mountains, in perfect tune, on new P7s

    FI QVs are coming beautifully. Will be one of the best FIQVs, really properly done. I think everyone will be impressed. The second QV is in paint. Cant wait to have all three together

    one quattrovalvole feature is the composite use on the front lid and engine bonnet

    you should be able to spot the composite texture under the paint on the front lid and rear bonnet (see this pic)

    this is a sign of original paint or a good bare body repaint

    I have added another new QV DD to the Register.
    Pictured by my good friend Jeroen Veeneman at the ILOC meeting Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg, September 1988.
    This car was owned by a Dutchman living in Belgium, on plates GCC-534.
    VIN still unknown, anybody?

    I mentioned this on page 13 of the thread, you really notice it on the engine cover after a run when the composite material & paint are still hot.

    Bumping this request. Would appreciate any help with a few clear images of your trunk carpeting. Thank you.

    Hi
    Hi Rossocorsa, did my best without taking the car out of the garage, the weather is not collaborating today. You’ll notice that there is no carpeting on the underside of the top of the rear quarter panel, you can still see the green aluminum primer.

    Hope these help. Let me know if you require more details. My trunk carpeting is all original (and in great condition as well). I was fortunate to find a black Countach with champagne interior and black carpeting and black dash top. Most QVs and 5000S with such livery have the tan carpeting and brown dash top. I much prefer full black.

    Another Jens Lucking sighting, here's the May 1985 production FLA12848 the only RHD Giallo Downdraft and famed AUTOCAR test car UK registered C 705 BYX.

    He took this image in Mike Perry's showroom in 1989.

    This car was new to serial Countach owner Ernie Marshall in Cornwall in the the UK, an interesting man who undoubtedly loved fast-looking objects, he had (and apparently still has) a large backyard where rather than garden statues, he installed a de-commissioned XR755 fighter jet complete with mounted rockets for his viewing pleasure from his spectacular home. Impeccable taste and the word is he's remained faithful to the marque.
