The Lamborghini Countach LP400 Periscopica supercar, given as a birthday present to the Saudi princess Dalal Bint Saud al-Saud in the 1970s, is up for sale in America. The car participated in the 2021 Pebble Beach Elegance Competition, where it was exhibited as part of the exhibition dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Kuntash; has undergone full maintenance and has been in the hands of only three owners. Mileage – 54,571 kilometers. The price, as usual, is not named, but it can be quite high, since only two Countachs from the entire edition received a combination of a purple body and a white interior.

The Lamborghini Countach LP400 Periscopica has a mintage of 150 pieces. Supercars were equipped with a carburetor V12 3.9 (375 forces and 361 Nm) paired with a five-speed “mechanics”, and such cars are now being auctioned for 800,000-900,000 euros. The feature of this specimen is the body color Viola Salchi and the interior made of Bianco leather, and there were only two Kuntashas with such a combination for the entire time.

The car was registered on December 21, 1976 – the first owner was the royal family of Saudi Arabia. The husband of Princess Dalal Bint Saud al-Saud presented the car to his wife for her birthday, choosing her favorite color scheme (judging by archival photographs, in the royal garage Countach was next to the Ferrari 400 of Dalal’s brother). In 1979, the Countach was bought by an American businessman and shipped to the States. In the Juniors House of Colors workshop, the supercar was repainted black (purple and white were out of fashion), and only the third owner returned the car to its original color.

The two-door took part in the Pebble Beach Elegance Competition 2021, where it was exhibited as part of the exhibition dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Kuntash. The new Countach LPI 800-4 debuted there on the chassis of the Sian FKP 37 hybrid. How much the seller wants to get for the car is unknown. The MM Garage dealership will announce the price only in person.
