The ‘Nero’ black Countach LP5000QV (QV: fourvales per-cylinder) on display here is a late 1988 model year car actually designated as a 1988.5 car. It is one of only 52 produced for the US market and was fitted with the highly desirable ‘optional’ rear wing ($7000), the distinctive Gold Campagnolo “Bravo” wheel package and the much needed A/C Climate Control system. These later models QVs (and the final ‘Anniversary’ models are easily identified by the ‘straked’ side skirts below the doors. Equipped with the fuel-injected, high compression version of the Lamborghini V12 motor that lifted the power output to 455bhp, this highly recognizable and iconic car can sprint to
60mph in 5.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 182mph. The completely original, 5-speed manual transmission matching numbers car was in the hands of its first owner for 27 years and has still only covered a fraction under 10,000 miles, making it probably one of the most original, low-mileage examples of the Countach QV in existence.
