Lamborghini 1972-2008

Anyone lucky enough to own a 1970s Countach might be well-advised to hang for a few more years as the growth doesn’t seem to be slackening.

1980s Countachs and the later Diablo are moving as well but both have a way to go before they recoup the original purchaser’s outlay.

Early models including the four-seat Espada rarely appear in the open market but prices look realistic.
