H.R. Owen has a true supercar icon on display at its world-famous Lamborghini London dealership, a super-low-mileage, bright red 1988 Lamborghini Countach QV.
Regarded as the definitive supercar of its generation, the Countach was designed to be the ultimate head-turner and performer; and despite H.R. Owen’s model being almost 30 years old, the ‘wow’ factor remains as strong as ever.
Its pioneering wedge-shaped – styled by Marcello Gandini of the Bertone Design Studio – cuts a sharply angled and stunning figure in the South Kensington showroom, appealing to those who formerly had posters of the Countach on their bedroom wall and new Lamborghini lovers alike.
H.R. Owen’s model is one of the finest examples of the definitive 80s supercar in the world, with only 22,828 miles on the clock. It features original Rosso paintwork and a pristine tan leather interior, too.
Plus, the car comes the original service and warranty book, driver’s handbook and leather book file to add to its untarnished feel.
Four previous owners have enjoyed the V12 mid-engined icon in its lifetime, and H.R. Owen was granted the privilege of finding its next home thanks to the group’s unrivalled stature in the industry.
Steve Higgins from the H.R. Owen Lamborghini sales team said: “Lamborghini is the epitome of the supercar, creator of brutally fast driver’s cars that offer real excitement to the person behind the wheel. The Countach was the leader of the current supercar trend: noisy, fast, impractical and with genuinely head-turning looks. To have one of the finest examples in our showroom offers a great opportunity for potential buyers to acquire a piece of history with the benefits of main dealer customer care, it also gives fans of the brand the chance to see the original supercar positioned against the latest, the fabulous Aventador S.”
Lamborghini London earned the title of the number one Lamborghini dealer in the world in 2016, before kicking on to display the UK’s first Centenario as well as a podium-ready Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo racer in 2017.
