    1120126 all dusty from use by it's current owner in France.

    The previous owner was David G in Michigan, USA, and this Countach is another one that spent most of it's life in the States, it was actually used as a cover car for Car & Driver magazine when driven by Don Sherman.

    Ciao tutti!

    Here is another important QV updated to the Countach-Register.com
    It's GLA12939, owned by Tonino and in the Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum.
    Here it is with Paolo Stanzani, with this dream car that he helped become a reality.

    Hi Jimmy and all,

    With the help of Roberto I have been looking into this mystery again.
    The black Lebanon car 5000 S was on Milano plates MI 43542S from very early 1983.
    I'm pretty sure that this car must be #CLA12541, a Nero/Nero 5000 S that was delivered late December 1982 to Achilli Motors Milano.
    I don't have any more information about this car, or where it might be nowadays, perhaps somebody else does?
    Just hope it wasn't stored in a warehouse in Beirut ;-(

    Blast from the Past.

    Image from 30 years ago by Jens Lucking of my first Countach, the LP500S CLA12515 which I'd just dropped off at Portman Lamborghini for servicing, that's Service Director Del Hopkins at rear of the car, I'm off-camera to the left.
