Behold: the 1985 Lamborghini Countach QV Downdraft Coupe – a 5 litre V12 455bhp sportscar named for its six Weber downdraft carbs and something of a ‘Holy Grail’ among Lambos.

Only 544 of these were ever built and this was the showcar – the subject of the brochure handed out at the 1985 Geneva Salon. A €270,000 restoration includes all log books and documentation along with period-correct Pirelli P7 tires and Ansa Sports exhaust.

All this, and only 14,500km on the clock.

    I could see myself putting out my hand to help lever my sorry ass outa the seat; and that big guillotine door comes down and chops my hand off.
    I’ll pass.
