This 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP400 ‘Periscopica’ is a rare gem currently being offered for sale by Gullwing Motor Cars, an antique car dealer based in Astoria, New York. This particular Countach, with chassis number 1120154, is the 77th out of 160 units manufactured by Lamborghini, and it was originally delivered to Canadian importer Eugene Carrie of Ontario in October 1975. The car made its way to the United States in 1978, and it eventually landed in the hands of long-time owner and marque enthusiast Peter Cohen of Longwood, Florida.
Cohen’s Ultimate Motor Works, an authorized Lamborghini dealer renowned for its quality workmanship, undertook a comprehensive two-year restoration of the Countach to its original LP400 Periscopica form. No area of the car was overlooked, including the exterior, interior, engine, transmission, suspension, brakes, and air-conditioning, with truly stunning results. During the restoration process, noted Lamborghini expert Valentino Balboni inspected this LP 400 on two occasions and gave the car high remarks.
This beautiful Countach comes in its factory-correct Blu Tahiti exterior finish, with a Bianco (White) and Blu (Blue) cabin trimmed in upholstery. It boasts a factory air-conditioning system and an original Philips cassette player, as well as Carello driving lights and period-correct Michelin XWX radial tires mounted on sporting Campagnolo alloy wheels. The car has only recorded 15,845km to date and has been kept in impeccable cosmetic and mechanical condition. This LP400 Periscopica presents a rare opportunity to acquire a significant Countach in its purest form, with desirable specifications and excellent presentation. The asking price for this matching numbers and restored Lamborghini Countach is currently $1,095,000.
