  • 1988 Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole

    The Countach was found in an old abandoned tool shed a number of years ago. It was fairly rough. I chose to leave it with its original black paint job irrespective of the chips, scratches and smudges. Would it not be considered a legitimate antique?

    The Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole is a 1:36 scale model by Majorette. Its condition was real rough: missing both side doors, having a cracked windshield, part of the rear wing broken off and missing, and having no detailing whatsoever to speak of.

    The interior was detailed, the gold wheels' five holes blackened, side marker lights colored, exhaust pipe tips silvered and paint imperfections covered with strokes from a black felt tip marker.
    I call the "dune buggy-esque" Lambo a "hardtop convertible". I pretend the hardtop will come off as I haven't the nerve yet to actually slice it off. LOL

    If you know some history or background concerning this 1:36 scale Majorette model, please inform us as I could find no pictures or literature regarding it on the internet. The red plastic interior, the gold wheels and the black paint are all orginal as far as I can tell. Thanks and

    thanks for looking...

    Badly injured Countach....

    With no doors it could just be the successor of the Cheetah.

    Not much help, but checking some things I found Majorette's 1/32-ish models were called either "Ultra Customs", and I think later "Maxi", but then this model looks like it could have been a "Club" series model, although those were 1/24th scale, however they did do this same model in that series.
