After being beautifully restored to its original state, this 1985 Lamborghini Countach will be offered for sale in search of a more suitable new home.
Today, the Lamborghini Countach supercar is still considered stunning in appearance, even after many years since the last one was produced. While the Italian car maker built only 321 units, of which less than 50 went to the US market, several more were imported later. The specific Countach in the video below was imported in the late 1980s.
After being used for a while, the 1985 Lamborghini Countach 5000 S has been parked and abandoned in a warehouse for the past 20 years. It’s not clear why the car had to be abandoned for so long, and the current seller did not explain why.
The owner is looking for a new home for the Countach, and will send it in for restoration to make it easier to achieve its purpose. However, before mechanical restoration, this classic supercar needs to be cleaned and polished. Larry Kosilla of the YouTube channel “Ammo NYC” was assigned the job, and he said that this is the most disgusting supercar I have ever seen, and the rats are the culprit.
With 20 years of idle time, the car was heavily ravaged by rats. Since rats are contagious animals, you must be careful to avoid their waste. That’s why you see Larry wearing a mask, and he even uses a protective suit to shield himself from dirty things touching his skin or clothes inside.
Larry also provides a pro tip on auto detailing, which is that sometimes you should clean your tools right in the process of handling the car. Otherwise, you run the risk of contaminating other surfaces with the very same filth you’re trying to clean.
Despite the hard work, not to mention the bad smell, Larry still says that this Lamborghini Countach is one of his favorite finds. In the end, the once legendary supercar looks as good as ever, especially when compared to the image at the beginning of the video. Next, it will be sent to a restorer to fix the machinery, and then be able to return to the streets for the first time in decades.
