The Auburn Auction, hosted by Worldwide Auctioneers, is just a week away, and one of the most recent listings for the auction simply leaped out of the website to grab our attention. This is because Lot 615 is nothing less than an absolutely mint 1990 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition. While lower mileage cars than this one have been sold privately, including the 83 factory miles as new one from Lamborghini of Montreal, this specific example, which is expected to break through to seven figures before the gavel strike, has had a single owner since the original purchase, and has only 3,966 miles (6,384 km as it is a Canadian car) on the odometer.
This, for the right bidder, might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get such a pristine example of the fiercest bull from Lamborghini’s stable before the Diablo emerged. The Countach was a brutal car in the best way possible, and painted in the classic Rosso Siviglia Red over a Desert Tan interior, it looks just as fierce as was designed to. This is one of the true icons of speed from the last couple of decades of the 20th century, when a Countach poster was on almost every kid’s wall as it was, and still is today, the most classic Lamborghini “poster car.”
