    That's ZA9C005A0JLA12291 bianco perlato with bianco/blue interior, went to Belgian distributor Sterca few days before the Brussels Motor Show.

    Later that year, in September 1988, the car was present at Lambo Day 1, aka as 25th anniversary event.

    I would love to know where this one resides today !

    This is Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole VIN FLA12882. Nero / Rosso. I pictured this one in 1987 at Van Vliet, The Netherlands Car spent most of it’s life in Holland. Last few years in was parked in a Museum in Amsterdam, and eventually bought by Dietmar Götz of Klima-Lounge, Germany I really love that car, what a beauty!!! Car is updated with many more pictures at www.countach-register.com check it out!

    Agreed Rob! It's so important we take care of ourselves and make the most out of life.

    Not really.

    Thank you for letting us have her, meanwhile 5 years later I hope you consider that we have done her right and provided her with a good home, as promised.

    Agreed, anything is possible, meanwhile if you find the VIN be sure to share if you can.

    JLA means 88.5 but this car has no side skirts.

    Now you mention this, upon checking the image again, I see another inconsistency with Kevin's comments, red piping around the door panel, not blue.

    Perhaps he was thinking of another.

    The car I posted previously is a 1986, non-metallic Bianco Polo Park, white interior with red piping, different setting, perhaps the same show a year earlier.

    This car has most likely a GLA suffix in the VIN.

    This looks like bianco perlato. Do you know which Motorshow it was?

    Correct.

    As mentioned above, both images are from the Brussels Motor Show, but different years.

    You can alway check my www.countach-register.com, fill in JLA12291 in the "Find a Countach" field, and then see this is correct ;-)

    Yeah!!! Great it is on Dutch plates now, and that the car is being driven instead of being parked in a collection! I'm organizing another Lamborghini Classic Club Olanda meeting in two weeks, will try to have him joining us ;-)

    You're right I mixed my noted JLA12291 was at the 1988 Brussels Motor Show
    GLA12938 is the one at the 1986 Brussels Motor Show, was registered in Belgium in June 1986 and went to UK in 1988

    Another Jen's Lucking period image, here's the AUTOCAR magazine test car which was electronically clocked at 180 mph on the Bruntingthorpe runway in 1987, seen here sitting in Mike Perry's London showroom circa 1989.

    Still in the UK.
