5300km from new 1983 Lamborghini Countach 5000 S — Supercar Nostalgia


Reprinted below is Sasso Automotive’s description for this spectacular low mileage right-hand drive Countach:

  • One of only 321 produced with only 33 being RHD

  • 5375km

  • A matching-numbers example

  • Cherished registration (5000 S) included in sale or by separate negotiation.

  • Chassis number 12645

  • Engine number 682

  • Alpine stereo

  • Rear wing delete

  • 2 sets of keys

  • Lamborghini car cover

When it was introduced in 1982, the LP5000S (or LP500S dependent on which market) was the third iteration of the Countach.

In total, there were only 321 produced with only 33 being RHD, however very few remain as original as this particular car having had only 2 owners from new in which the first original owner had it for over 30 years in Johannesburg SA, the second registered keeper an English gentleman then personally requested the services of the legendary former chief test driver of Lamborghini Valentino Balboni who travelled to Johannesburg with him to inspect the car in which Mr Balboni said it was the very best original untouched Countach he’d ever seen.

It was then imported to the UK in 2014 in which Mr Balboni personally oversaw the recommissioning of the car. The original exterior condition as you would expect with a mileage of 3000 is astonishing the same goes for the interior, which is in impeccable condition.

Accessible through the upward-opening doors, which was a unique feature at the time and had never been seen in a production car before in this way. We have never seen a Countach that was so neatly cared for on the inside, with stitching so precise and everything functioning so well.

This has to be one of the best RHD examples of the iconic Countach LP5000s in the world today, and represents an excellent investment opportunity

Complete with original service book, documented history, various invoices and original keys, this poses a great opportunity to own a wonderful and totally original Countach 5000S.
