Building upon the popularity of the earlier Miura, Lamborghini’s Countach enjoyed a 16-year production run of 2,049 cars that assured the company a prominent position among the ranks of supercars. Lamborghini based the 25th Anniversary Edition on its 5000 QV, featuring scissor doors, a hunkered-down profile, and steeply raked windshield. Horatio Pagani redesigned the Bertone bodywork specially for the company’s quarter-century celebrations in 1988 and made over 500 subtle refinements, rendering the 25th Anniversary Edition the most driveable and civilized of the Countach line. Capable of a top speed of 183 mph and achieving 0–60 mph in just 4.7 seconds, the Anniversary Edition was the most forgiving of its stablemates – and considered the fastest.

Lamborghini produced just 657 examples of the Anniversary Countach in 1990, and this example is exceptional – believed to be one of only 25 dressed in Bianco Perlato (Pearl White). This Canadian-market example was ordered with a contrasting tan leather interior and the optional rear spoiler, and it remained in a prestigious collection for many years prior to being acquired by its current owner. In late 2018, the Countach underwent a comprehensive service, including new fluids, rebuilt brakes, and the installation of new, factory-correct Pirelli tires.

With only 12,200 km (approximately 7,600 miles) on the odometer at the time of cataloguing, this Countach belies its 29 years and presents a unique opportunity to acquire an iconic automobile in superlative condition.
