You’ve never seen a photo with so many Lamborghini Countachs congregated in such a small area in your life.
Coming across one Lamborghini Countach in the wild is pretty special but when there are more than thirty Lamborghini Countachs concentrated in an area no larger than a church parking lot, you know it’s got to be something special. As per Bring A Trailer in their latest post and photo they shared earlier today (Nov. 6, 2018) they’ve unearthed a rare photo indeed showing what looks to be a most uncommon meetup in the hillside of Japan where the aforementioned two dozen plus Italian Exotic owners meetup. Check out the amazing photo below.
To be honest, there’s no real concrete proof of where this photo comes from but by the looks of the area, the amount of wealth concentrated in such a small area, and what looks like a Kei-van in the corner, it looks like this is indeed Japan.
Japan in the late 80’s experienced a boom in what’s generally known as a period of great economic growth. Driven by consumer demand for domestic products, superior technology in consumer electronics, cars, and manufacturing methods and a “postwar technological boom” more for economic growth than military development, Japan and its wealthy elite were flush with cash, so, spending on this level wasn’t all that uncommon. The base price of a Lamborghini Countach in 1985 was a whopping $100,000 which is about $240,000 in 2018, so, you can imagine just how much a Countach cost back then.
Bring A Trailer spotted a couple of gems in the photo. There’s supposedly a navy blue Walter Wolf edition which sports a special high-power version of the Countach’s engine that makes a generous 447 HP, much more than the 350 HP in the LP400. With a reported top speed cresting 201 MPH, it’s one of the rarest Countachs of its time.
There’s also what looks to be a black 25th-anniversary car which is possibly one of the “most refined and possibly fastest variant of the Countach” boasting a sub-five second 0-60 MPH time and a top speed of 183 MPH.
It’s a special photo that’s withstood the test of time and, in my opinion, has gained even more interest today since, you know, rad cars are totally coming back into fashion.
May the Countach live on!
