One of the themes of this year’s Mecum Auction’s Monterey event seems to be low mileage. They are bringing along a number of highly desirable exotics and classics that are virtually new and have extremely low milages relative to their age. A case in point is this 1988 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 Quattrovalvole.
Finished in menacing black with standard factory gold rims and a $5,500 optional rear wing, this beautiful Lamborghini Countach is number 676 of 2,042 and has a late model 5.2 liters V12 with four valves per cylinder, hence the Quattrovalvole badge. It is unclear how much power exactly this engine makes, but you can be sure it is pretty close to the factory figures because according to the odometer the engine has done only 15,640 kilometers or 9,718 miles. It’s barely even broke in.
Other highlights of unique 1988 Lamborghini Countach include a 5-speed manual transmission, Black with Black leather interior, and a major $9,500 service in 2013. The car also has the factory standard air conditioning which sounds good, but it’s famous for being more of a novelty item than a real unit with actual air conditioning power. Of course, you don’t buy a thing like this to use it, so you don’t care. The Countach these days is more of a garden ornament than a car. It’s an expensive one, too, with this particular one estimated at between $375,000 to $425,000.
