The Lamborghini story is fascinating in itself but for the company to have survived all these years and indeed celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2013 is quite amazing. Ferruccio Lamborghini was an entrepreneur, a very successful businessman and a lover of the finer things in life, including sports cars. He was fortunate enough to own some wonderful cars including Ferraris however, he found fault with them all. According to the legend following a meeting with Enzo Ferrari to discuss some of the short comings of his cars Enzo dismissed Ferruccio and he subsequently decided that he could build a better car. Not long after, in May 1963, Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini SPA was established and the small town of Sant'Agata Bolognese, located between Modena and Bologna, was chosen as the location to build the factory. Born under the Zodiac sign Taurus Lamborghini chose the raging bull as the emblem for his sports cars. Lamborghini knew what he wanted and he put together a highly skilled team. His first car, the 350 GTV was shown at the Turin Motor Show in October 1963. This car received mixed reviews, however, Lamborghini was not deterred and made a number of improvements and design changes to this original concept. The first Lamborghini production car, the 350 GT, left the factory in mid 1964. The 350 GT evolved into the 400 GT 2+2 and later the Islero. In parallel to building these classic front engine V12 GT cars Lamborghini wanted to build a super car, enter the Miura first shown as a rolling chassis in 1965, and also a GT car that could comfortably seat four people, enter the Espada in 1968. The mid to late sixties were good times for Lamborghini and his cars were revered the world over. One of Lamborghinis biggest markets was the USA and he needed to redesign the Islero to comply with strict new design rules. Ferruccio decided to commission a new car and so the Jarama (pronounced Yah-rah-mah) was born. Named after a district in Spain renowned for breeding fighting bulls the Jarama was first shown at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show. The car designed by Bertones Marcello Gandini was unique but compared to many other Lamborghinis quite subtle or even understated in its design, which is exactly what Lamborghini wanted. According to the numbers only 327 Jaramas were built. Of these, 177 were the 'standard' Jarama produced from 1970 to 1972 and 150 were the Jarama S produced from 1972 to 1975, though many completed cars were sold post 1975. It is understood that circa 23 right hand drive cars were built, comprising of 5 Jaramas and 18 Jarama S (or GTS). Of the 5 right hand drive Jaramas built, 2 were UK delivered, 2 Singapore delivered and the other was Australian delivered. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale this spectacular and extremely rare right hand drive Lamborghini Jarama. The factory records confirm this car was completed on the 6th August 1971 and delivered to Lamborghini London. The car is noted as being 'rosso alfa' (red) with a 'nero' (black) interior. It was delivered new with air conditioning. Whilst this car is 1 of the 2 UK delivered right hand drive Jaramas, it was purchased new in the UK by an Australian, Graeme Cook, who imported it here in late 1971. The current Victorian Registration documents note that the car was complianced in 01/1972. Cook owned the car a short time then sold it to Michael Abon, an owner of BP service stations in Melbourne. The current owner first acquired this Lamborghini Jarama in 1975. At that time he purchased the car from Chris Smith, who was a car broker, sports car / historic race driver and motor racing commentator. Smith was understood to have owned the car for some 18 months. The car was enjoyed for 5 years before it was sold in 1980 to Lutz Frankenfeld, a Darwin based businessman who drove the car from Melbourne to Adelaide before transporting it to Darwin. Frankenfeld owned the car for almost 10 years. There are two period photos of the car on file taken at prestige car dealer Oxford Allenby Motors in Perth in the late 1980's, which would have been when Frankenfeld sold the car. At that time the odometer was c55,000 miles. Fast track to 2004 and the owner of this Lamborghini Jarama from 1975 to 1980 bought his old car back. Hed always regretted selling this car and after several years of looking, it turned up in Perth at the Motor Museum of Western Australia. The car had been in continuous ownership for 15 or so years. Its then owner passed away and his family had the car displayed at the Motor Museum of Western Australia. At that time the car was registered as 1BUF012 (WA). This car is well travelled and Ferruccio would have been well pleased that it has been used and enjoyed throughout its life. In 2009 the engine was rebuilt by Lamborghini specialist Paul Placzek from Sports & Classic Car Services in Melbourne. At that time the odometer was 97,957 miles. This is a well known car in Melbourne and it is often seen on various classic Italian car rallies and other events. It has averaged around 1,000 miles per annum since the engine was rebuilt and the odometer today reads 07993 (107,993) miles. The car has just been repainted in its original colour by classic and prestige car specialists Luxury Auto Body in Melbourne. As a result, the car presents today like new. We love the look of the Jarama in red which is beautifully contrasted by the subtle chrome work and black accents. The Miura style knock off wheels, which are a real feature of the Jarama and a preferred look to the bolt on wheels of the Jarama S, are in beautiful condition with no scrapes or wheel rash evident. All of the chrome, other external trim, lights/lenses and the glass are in very good condition. The cabin in a Jarama is arguably the most comfortable of all the classic Lamborghinis. Visibility is excellent and the seats are quite luxurious. The interior of this car is finished in its original black and it provides a lovely contrast to the red paint work. All of the leather is in excellent condition and there are no rips, tears or splits to any of the upholstery. The timber steering wheel and gear knob are a feature and both are in excellent condition on this car. All of the instruments and controls are in working order and the (upgraded) air conditioning even blows cold air. On a recent test drive, this car performed every bit as good as it looks. Like most big V12 Lamborghinis this Jarama needs plenty of fuel sucked into the carburettors to get the engine started. Once it fires the engine quickly settled into a smooth idle. This car has been upgraded with electronic ignition which has probably helped with the smoothness of its running, particularly when cold. What became immediately apparent was that this car was unfussed nudging in and around busy Melbourne traffic. The gearbox is smooth from cold and there is no need to be apprehensive selecting second gear. This car is fully sorted and an absolute joy to drive. It really finds its head once out on the motorway and put simply it just wants to go. A break in traffic opens up and the car just takes off. Lamborghinis 3929cc V12 is an absolute jewel and the engine in this car has loads of power on tap and it revs willingly through the rev range without any hesitation at all. The brakes are more than adequate and pullthe car up effortlessly in a straight line. The handling is balanced and the steering is direct. Interestingly, the feel is quite different to an Espada which has a slightly longer wheelbase. The Jarama was a favourite of Ferruccio Lamborghini. To quote him from the January 1991 issue of Thoroughbred & Classic Cars . . . I preferred the Jarama to all the others, because it is the perfect compromise between the Miura and the Espada. The Miura is a sports car for the young at heart who wants to go like hell and love to be seen. Myself, I considered the Miura too extrovert after a while. In turn, the Espada was my Rolls Royce . . . still quite fast, but also large and comfortable. The Jarama is the perfect car if you just want to have one car. The Miura and Countach are the best known classic Lamborghinis, however, the front engine V12 cars have now developed strong interest from collectors and enthusiasts all over the world. The early 350 GT / 400 GT 2+2s and even the Islero have taken off in terms of price and the Jarama has slept quietly in their shadows. The secret is out, however, and the Jarama is now becoming sought after and prices are on the rise. Its best competitor from across town at Maranello would be the Ferrari 365 GTC/4 and the Jarama offers great value, is every bit as good to drive (if not better!) and it is a lot rarer compared to the C4. The car is confirmed as matching numbers. It has a correct spare wheel but no tool/jack kit. There are service receipts on file dating back to 2005, an original owners manual, an Espada/Jarama engine manual (copy), parts manual (copy), original sales brochures and other literature that will accompany the car. The owner has decided it is time to down size his collection. As noted above, this car has just been repainted and he has therefore decided it is probably the right time to sell. Highlights: - 1 of only 5 factory right hand drive Lamborghini Jaramas built. - A beautifully presented car that is absolutely fantastic to drive. - Recently repainted and only 10,000 miles since the engine was rebuilt. - A well known, well maintained car with a known history from new. Price - $349,950.

The first Lamborghini production car, the 350 GT, left the factory in 1964. The 350 GT evolved into the 400 GT 2+2 and later the Islero. In parallel to building these classic front engine V12 GT cars, Lamborghini wanted to build a supercar. Enter the Miura, which was first shown as a rolling chassis at the Turin Motor Show in November 1965. Fast track to the 1966 Geneva Motor Show and the stunning Bertone designed Miura was officially released to critical acclaim. The Miura is considered by many to be the first real supercar. The first model was known as the P400, followed by the P400S introduced in 1969 and the P400SV which was introduced in 1971. Even though the Miura was a great success it was starting to show its age. Under the project name LP112, chief engineer Paolo Stanzani and his staff began working on a successor to the Miura in 1970. For this project, he collaborated with test driver Bob Wallace, assistant engineer Massimo Parenti and designer Marcello Gandini of Bertone. Ferruccio Lamborghini had a preference for Grand Tourers, but he recognized there was a real market for uncompromising sports cars. He gave the development team his approval to push the boundaries even further than what they had done while designing the Miura. The first prototype, designated LP500, was first shown to the world at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. The prototype Countach shocked the world. Surely just another show car they said. The Miura was a tough act to follow and Bertones design team pushed the boundaries to create what is today one of the most recognisable shapes on the planet! The word Countach is a slang exclamation of astonishment in Piedmontese, a northern Italian dialect. This expletive was uttered when one of Bertones design team members was building a scale model of the car . . . and it stuck! The Countach became reality when the first production car rolled off the Sant Agata production line in 1974. The original LP400 was replaced by the LP400S in 1978. The S model had the wide wheel arches and uprated suspension to accommodate the massive Pirelli P7 tyres / Campagnolo wheel rims along with other subtle improvements. In 1982 the LP500S (also referred to as the LP5000S) was introduced. The major change here was the increased engine capacity from 3929cc to 4754cc. The Countach continued to evolve and in 1985 the LP5000 Quattrovalvole (or QV) was introduced. With the QV the engine was improved again, bored and stroked to 5.2 litres (5,167 cc) and given four valves per cylinder (quattrovalvole in Italian). The final variant of the Countach, the 25th Anniversary, was released in 1988. The 25th Anniversary variant was celebrating Lamborghinis 25th anniversary as an automobile manufacturer. The bodywork of its predecessor, the LP5000 QV was redesigned by Horacio Pagani, the creator of the Pagani Zonda. There are about 500 subtle changes and improvements found on the 25th Anniversary compared to theLP5000 QV. The Lamborghini Countach is in our opinion THE first supercar and it was an incredible success with circa 2,000 cars built. Production spanned an amazing 17 years from 1974 to 1990. When the 25th Anniversary was introduced, Lamborghini was owned by Chrysler. They took their time to develop and introduce the Countach successor, the Diablo, so the 25th Anniversary was somewhat of a gap filler. It was, however, very successful and 657 examples were built. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a very low mileage 1990 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary. According to the Lamborghini Registrys factory records, this car was completed on the 30th March 1990 and its original colour scheme was rosso (red) with a panna (cream) interior and red piping. This Lamborghini Countach was destined for the Australian market, however, at the very last moment it was diverted to Brunei where it became part of the Royal familys private collection. Due to the secrecy surrounding the royal family in Brunei, not much is known about the cars early history, however, it is fair to say the car was sparingly used if at all. Cars belonging to the royal family were never formally registered with the Land Transport Department in Brunei. The car was gifted to a close friend of the royal family who first registered it on the 18th December 1997 as BAC4902. There are records on file showing the car remained registered in Brunei until 2004. The car then ended up in a storage facility and unfortunately it wasnt well looked after. There is a record on file showing the car was last registered (to be off the road) on the 18th September 2010. At that time the car carried the registration BP8168. This car, along with many others, was sold by public auction in late 2016. The carwas acquired by Gullwing Motor Cars who are headquartered in Astoria, New York in North America. The car was approved for export to the USA on the 14th December 2016. At that time the car was cosmetically in poor condition. This late model Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary was acquired from Gullwing Motor Cars by its current Brisbane based owner. He is a Lamborghini enthusiast and former Lamborghini employee who wanted to set up a boutique business to restore high end classic cars, particularly Lamborghinis! There are usually Espada projects out there, but he wanted something special and this Countach was just perfect. The car was imported into Australia in early 2018. The owner then started the journey to completely restore this Countach to its former glory. The photos on file show this was by no means an easy project. When the car was dismantled it became apparent the long-time storage in Brunei had not done it any favours. The Countach body is mounted on a complex space frame chassis that is prone to rust. It was immediately apparent that this car had some rust in the chassis so the body was removed and the chassis restored. A complete cosmetic restoration was undertaken and the car was repainted in its original colour. They have done a wonderful job and today the paintwork presents like new. The wheels were carefully polished and also present like new. Correct Pirelli tyres were fitted all round. All of the external trim was either refurbished or replaced. The glass is original and in excellent condition, consistent with the mileage of the car. Fortunately, the interior was incredibly well preserved. All of the upholstery, the dash and even the carpets were in very good condition. With a significant amount of elbow grease the interior has cleaned up particularly well. All of the instruments and controls have been checked and refurbished where necessary. The car was totally stripped mechanically and everything was rebuilt as required. The engine and gearbox were all in very good condition and did not require rebuilding. That said, everything was stripped, new gaskets & seals were used throughout and all ancillaries were overhauled. When imported into Australia the odometer was showing 3,247 km. An absolute fortune has been spent restoring this car to its former glory. All the new parts used were sourced through Lamborghini and no short cuts were taken. Today this car presents essentially like new. The interior shows the slightest amount of patina, most noticeably on the door cards. The boot is original and whilst it is in good condition, there is some slight discolouration and marking on the carpet. Perhaps surprisingly to some, the fuel injected V12 engine starts easily. Driving any Countach is an event, so once you are in the zone and the engine has warmed up you can hit the open road. Refined is not a word one would associate with a Countach, but the 25th Anniversary is surprisingly refined compared to its predecessors. Once mobile you learn to live with the fact every second car on the road has someone wanting to take a photo as you drive by! We were able to ditch the paparazzi and find a relatively quiet stretch of road to enjoy the Countach as its maker intended. This beast is tight on the road and it steers and stops as one would expect. In todays politically correct world the only place you can really experience a Countach as Ferruccio had dreamed is a race track, but that was for another day. On a typical beautiful Brisbane winters day under a cloudless blue sky our job was to make sure that this car did what it needed to do. This Countach 25th Anniversary passed with flying coloursand it is now time for the car to find its next custodian. The car has an interesting history file, including registration documents from Brunei, restoration photos and invoices for new parts purchased. There is also the correct space saver spare wheel under the front bonnet. Unfortunately, the tool kit is missing. We are delighted to offer an incredibly unique opportunity to purchase every young childs dream poster car. Highlights: - A rare, factory right hand drive Lamborghini Countach. - Presented in its original colour scheme of red with a cream interior. - Fascinating history. - Recently refurbished by Lamborghini trained enthusiasts to a very high standard. - Only 3,292 km on the odometer. Price AUD $629,950.
