1988 Lamborghini Countach
This Countach is one of only 16 RHD 1988 1/2 Model Year cars believed to have been imported to England by the UK Lamborghini importer Portman Concessionaires, two of which are thought to have then gone to Japan.
Purchased new by Gerald Carroll of the Carroll Group London in September 1988, Mr Carroll specified his Countach with several bespoke options such as black door interior panels, red leather steering wheel and gear lever gaiter (the latter removed by the second owner), etched Lamborghini inscribed sill plates, chromed interior and rear Lamborghini badges.
This iconic and very rare car is in superb condition having covered just 14,300 recorded miles from new (the odometer displays 22,900 kilometres). In addition to having its original hand and service books in their wallet, there is a comprehensive history file containing many maintenance invoices, expired MOT certificates and tax discs, copies of previous registration documents. Also included are photographs of the car being unloaded from the transporter at Portman Concessionaires when new and shortly afterwards outside Buckingham Palace.
