1990 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary

The Lamborghini Countach became a legend in its own time, but Automobili Lamborghini took this masterpiece one-step further. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of Automobili Lamborghini SpA they designed and built what would become the ultimate Countach. This ‘celebration’ model was intended to be sold in limited numbers only, but it turned out to be the best selling Countach ever made reaching a total of 658 units before it was replaced by the long awaited Diablo in 1990.

Because of its limited production run, the 25th Anniversary Edition puts it in rare air for the collector market. It also was the launching point for a gentleman named Horacio Pagani to be set free to redesign the car’s shape and aesthetic, while keeping it unmistakably a Countach. It was the most aggressive form of the Countach, with the most powerful version of the classic Lamborghini V12, the Quattrovalvole 48 valve version from the LP5000S, as its beating heart, laying down a massive-for-the-time 455 HP.
