Countach for sale

Don't think this has been posted yet

What a car... if it doesn't run and I had money to throw away I'd get it just to keep in my garage to look at every morning

Lamborghini 5000 S

Looks like a replica as well, the tail lights are too small on the Craigslist car and has a line around the rear finish panel. Flares are weird as well.

^ I could get one going. Not gonna be cheap, though.

This one looks fake. Exhaust is the first clue and the dash is another. Countach dashes were very angular and kit car looking, not smooth and rounded like this one. The rear intake ducts look correct, but seem like they're molded to the body instead of being separate. Base of the door pillar at rear bottom has a bulge. The 25th Anniversary had this but also had matching raked in the doors. And the 25th has completely different air intakes.

Seats look different too, and tires don't look wide enough. If it is fake, does the owner know? If he does, he should be reported for fraud

noob question: Isn't there a VIN # to verify the model?

I don't know, it might be a fake, but I don't think its Fiero. First, he's calling it an 89, and there was no 89 Fiero. Next, I can't see anything left that's Fiero, like the climate controls or anything that people would use as its harder to replace with something different.

Wouldn't be hard to see in person, and its convenient that of all the photos included, the ones that aren't are the ones that would show you.

that's definitely a fake. maybe not a Fiero, but it's not a Lamborghini for sure. tailights, wheels and exhaust are dead give away in the first picture.

somebody should just call and ask why he didn't include any engine bay pictures.
