This Lamborghini Countach is the first LP500 S, when the company updated the iconic car in 1982. That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the interesting history behind this car, though.

The LP500 S made its public debut at the 1982 Geneva International Motor Show. In 1985, Carlos Cavazo, the guitarist for Quiet Riot, took possession of the car and owned it for 35 years.

Cavazo put it into long-term storage in 2001, where it remained for two decades. It was then purchased in 2021 by its current owner.

The car appears to be in “highly original and complete condition," including the "body number, 72, stamped on the boot lid and engine covers, plus early and special features including the Campagnolo cast magnesium wheels, early ‘5S’ badging, and LP400S-type fender flares.” One of the few non-original parts? In the mid-1980s, the Weber carburetion system originally fitted to the car was swapped out for fuel injection.
