The Lamborghini Countach QV is one of the best known silhouettes of the 1980s. Its predecessor, the Miura, is widely regarded as the first ever supercar. The exotic Italian carmaker returned with sharp styling and iconic scissor doors for the Countach.
The QV, named for its four valve heads, was introduced 14 years after the Countach was initially launched. The QV had an extra 45bhp with little changes made to the exterior.
“Well-maintained, as-new condition examples of the Countach QV are incredibly difficult to find” says Whale, “as such, they command higher prices. A theme is emerging of late with classics of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s – ‘pin-up’ cars are becoming increasingly sought after, this demand is driving prices higher.”
