As an avid Star Wars enthusiast waiting for the new Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens), I would like to share these images. They were taken for the “True Greats” auction at Coys. The car is described as “The unique Lamborghini Countach 5000 S appears to have come straight from the Empire’s fleet of Galactic vehicles, with its futuristic style.”
And honestly I can not disagree. If there is one classic car that features a design worthy of the Star Wars-label it surely is the Lamborghini Countach! In white (including a white leather interior), those flared wheel arches and the massive rear wing stand out even more. Making this the preferred mode of transport for Storm Troopers. At least to me, if I was employed by Darth Vader.
This 1984 Countach 5000 S was the second 5000 S ever made. With only one owner the car was stored in a dehumidified garage since 1990. Its mileage is around 52,000 kilometres and looks to be in very good shape. Prior to the auction the Countach has received a major mechanical revision.
