    Shown as sold on Gullwing Motor Car's website - they actually owned the car. Great spec and nice car to properly restore back.

    If it’s the same car I’m thinking about, it was available for ages. I always found it surprising. There must me a lot more to the car that I don’t know.

    Upon checking more carefully, I can see that I have caused some confusion, apologies for that.

    The car on the flatbed is neither 1120154 (dark metallic blue with side-markers) or 1120064 (lighter metallic blue) both of which Fantasy Junction handled in the past.

    It is actually 1120174.

    The car you are thinking about is 0154 which has variously been mostly for sale over the past decade, IMO for a number of reasons, the most prominent of which us the car's non-original side-markers, a subject you & I have discussed as it relates to the early cars.

    Bravo Olivier, yet another great Countach returned to it's original guise, hopefully we'll see it being enjoyed.

    Speaking of 2021, the market is cooking!

    Visible to the casual observer: 6x9 kenwoods in the door frames, duct tape on the intake plenum, an auxilliary cigarette lighter with an exposed wire clipped to a stamped metal bracket screwed to the transmission tunnel, missing (?) emergency spare. Not sure about what deeper issues it might have had, but I expect there were a few...

    It spent some time in Dubai at Tomini Classics https://www.tominiclassics.com/featcar/lamborghini-countach-lp400/

    Earlier it sold for $330,000 at auction, with the following comments:

    “the project reportedly spared no expense in order to produce the most correctly-detailed end result possible”

    I have seen that one up close on a few occasions here in Dubai and don't think I would agree with the assessment of the auctioneer. In addition, that restoration (unless it has been restored again) must have been done 15-20 years ago.

    Do you remember when this auction was? I have 8x different advertisements of this particular car of the last 11 years.

    1120222 on USA soil circa 1981 shortly after Albert Silvera sold it, a Wolf Dallara wing had been added, but you can still see the metallic gold lamé leather with blue velour fabric seat inserts.

    Hi all! Flashback to 2007, when we organized the Marcel de Lange Memorial Meeting meeting, a tribute to our dear Lamborghini friend who passed away in 2006. This is Countach 5000 S VIN ELA12718 crossing the famous Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam. This car was original painted Oro Sahara, went from Switzerland to Syria, then many years in Holland. Last year sold by Gallery Aaldering, and surfaced in Brasil recently! This picture is taken by friend Phan Vu Nguyen. Info and 126 more pictures of this car can be found on my www.countach-register.com

    I agree, but after looking closely at the photos,,the tires seem to be the least of the concerns with this car.
