EVALUATION : Visually maintained, largely original | Single ownership for
30 years. Significant cracks and crazing in the paint, but only visible up close. The windshield is delaminating a little at the bottom. Clean wheels. Good interior with light wear on the driver’s seat. Rebuilt engine and new clutch 4,000 kilometers ago, done to European specs by a specialist, so it’s presumably worry-free. At least as worry-free as an old Lambo can be.
BOTTOM LINE : Charming originality and the right amount of patina, or just tired? We’d say the former, but paddle-wavers seemed to think it was the latter. This was a low price even for a 1982–85 LP500S, which generally tend to be among the less expensive Countach variants.
