I have seen the odd celebrity car go up for sale in recent months but I don't think any compare to this one. This Lamborghini Countach was formerly owned by Mario Andretti. He is well known for his success in F1, Indy 500 and Le Mans. With this impressive racing history also comes some very nice cars. This is his 1984 Countach 5000 S and it is very beautiful, and can be all yours.

I have seen a few Countach's but not many compare to the spec on this one. As you can see, it is finished in red paint with a lovely tan leather interior which is a very strong configuration indeed. As well as this, the car is in stunning condition. It has covered just 11,007 miles in its 35 years of existence. This is just enough to show it has been driven yet not too many that it's covered in scratches. The engine recently had a major overhaul so it is like it was 35 years ago.

The Countach 5000 S comes with a 5.0L naturally aspirated V12 which produces 371 hp. But what makes the 5000 S even more special is that there are just 312 examples for the whole world. I certainly have never seen one.

This one is up for sale for a cool $499,000 (Β£400,250) which isn't really any more than the others on the market which makes this the steal of the century...if you have a spare $500k. But don't forget who owned this. A true driving legend.

Would you buy this with $500k?

  • The price is a bargain for sure and the history of the car is great. Maybe I should consider selling my home and live in it πŸ˜‚ Who knows whether its gonna appreciate in 5 years or so.
