Countach 25th Anniversary
1988 / 1990
In September 1988, to celebrate in style the 25th anniversary of the brand’s foundation as a car manufacturer, Lamborghini launched a very special version of the Countach. The Countach “Anniversario” (as it came to be known) included around 500 changes and improvements over the super-powerful “QuattroValvole” then in production. The ‘nose’ was modified by the adoption of a newly designed bumper, and the lower spoiler now incorporated side air intakes that cooled the front brakes directly. The rear bumper was also redesigned. The rear air intakes were also redesigned, with a striking intake grille featuring parallel claws that contribute to the original, provocative look of the Anniversario. Less visible but even more important were the changes to the chassis to improve handling. The interior and equipment were also improved. The style of the door panels was slightly revised with the introduction of electric window controls. The more comfortable seats were fitted with electric seat back recline controls, which considerably improved driving position and comfort – one of the Countach’s areas for improvement. A new steering wheel has been designed, and improved sound insulation makes the 25th much more pleasant to drive. A more powerful air conditioning system has also been developed. In short, not just a Special Edition, but a new car!
