See and Hear Ferruccio’s Own Lamborghini Countach For First Time

Check out the Countach owned by the man who's name is on the badge

  • Ferruccio’s Lamborghini Countach brought to light

  • Given light restoration to get back on road


In today’s episode of “not your usual barn find and restoration,” we have a lifelong classic car restoration expert working on the Countach that belonged to Lamborghini himself.

That’s right, on Tyrrell’s Garage, featuring classic car expert (and professional singer) Iain Tyrrell takes a look at what might be the most valuable Lamborghini Countach in the entire world. Tyrrell says this car has essentially never been brought into the public eye, giving a history of the car before commencing and completing a restoration to bring it back to the road.

The Countach belonged to Ferruccio Lamborghini, bought from new, though it was originally a cancelled order set to be painted red. Tyrrell explains that the car itself is one of the rare LP400S 2 low-body cars, that though they were smaller and more subdued than later cars are in the highest demand. That, of course, is before it was bought by the man with his name on the boot. While Tyrrell doesn’t say how much the car changed hands for when it was recently sold to just its fourth owner, but he hints that it was a tremendous amount.

After a fascinating talk about the history of the various early Countach models, Tyrrell takes the car for a test drive, which is followed by the restoration of the car. It starts with fixing the door pins but quickly moves into the twin-shock rear suspension designed to handle that massive 345-width tire. Ok, it’s more of a quick service than a restoration, but this car is close to immaculate.

So watch and see this spectacular car along with a run once it’s all up to snuff. And then listed to the shop owner take on Frank Sinatra for a wonderful ending drive. Hey, it’s no Matt Monro, but then again, this is no Miura.
