A remarkable 1984 Lamborghini Countach LP500 S, one of the mere 321 models crafted during its production span, is making waves in the classic car market. This iconic supercar, with its distinctive Nero Tenebre finish over Nero leather interior, stands as a testament to Lamborghini's engineering prowess and design innovation. Having traveled a modest 52,000 kilometers (~32,000 miles), this Countach LP500 S has undergone a meticulous refresh, ensuring it continues to captivate enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Originally unveiled as Lamborghini's response to Ferrari’s 512 BB, the LP500 S introduced in 1982 boasted an enlarged 4.8-liter V12 engine, offering a significant power boost over its predecessors. The car's design, a product of the legendary Marcello Gandini for Bertone, retains the celebrated scissor doors and aggressive styling that has become synonymous with the Lamborghini brand.

In 2015, this particular Countach underwent an extensive repaint and mechanical overhaul by Stuart’s Paint & Body Specialists of Dallas, Texas. Efforts to preserve its allure didn't stop there; in 2018, XPEL paint protection film was applied to various parts of its body, safeguarding its aesthetic integrity against the elements and road debris.

Underneath its captivating exterior, the Countach boasts a fully independent suspension system and powerful ventilated disc brakes, with calipers that were rebuilt as part of its comprehensive 2015 refresh. Silver-finished 15" Ruote OZ wheels, wrapped in Pirelli Cinturato P7 tires, further accentuate its bold stance.

The cabin's Nero leather upholstery encapsulates the driver and passenger in luxury, complemented by modern conveniences such as a gated shifter, an Alpine cassette stereo, power windows, and a discrete backup camera. Recent maintenance includes a recharged air conditioning system, ensuring comfort without compromising the vehicle's classic charm.

At its heart lies the 4.8-liter DOHC V12 engine, revitalized with a bottom-end rebuild by Norwood Auto Italia of Carrollton, Texas. The engine's prowess is accentuated with an MSD 6A digital ignition control box and a Larini stainless-steel Sport muffler, enhancing its auditory signature on the road.

Offered with its owner’s manual, comprehensive service records, and a clean Arizona title, this 1984 Lamborghini Countach LP500 S is more than a mere automobile; it's a piece of automotive history, rejuvenated for the next chapter in its storied existence.
