1976 Lamborghini LP400 Countach for sale

The Lamborghini LP400 Countach is one of the most important cars in the history of automobiles, being the first Lamborghini Countach model that entered production. The Lamborghini Countach LP400 is the most appreciated version of the Lamborghini thanks to its clean, fresh design, having smooth simple lines. Also, thanks to its narrow tires, the Lamborghini Countach LP400 is maybe one of the fastest versions of the Lamborghini Countach, even if it was only the first in the family. The Lamborghini Countach LP400 was in production only for a couple of years, since 1974 up to 1978. A grand total of only 150 units were built of the LP400 version of the Lamborghini Countach.

If I got you interested, you will be happy to know that a 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP400 has been put up for sale in Huntington Station, New York.
