Restoration files (Engine was rebuilt as new)
The car is all original.
It is not a concour car because it was kept as original as possible.
Chassis 1121272 was ordered by René Leimer, then owner of the firm, to be exhibited at the 1981 Geneva Motor Show, alongside the Lamborghini Miura P400 S 4808.
It is therefore a Series 2, one of fifty examples retaining the ”low-body” bodywork of the Series 1.
As visible in archive photos from the 1981 Geneva Motor Show, the car was originally painted in Blu Notte, with a blue and white interior and equipped with a spoiler.
It was Serge Waefler who acquired it during the show, for a higher price than that announced in the catalog because of its immediate availability and its new options including, in addition to the spoiler, front tires of 225, a 45 carburettor, specific camshafts and an Ansa competition exhaust.
Repainted in red when it was delivered to its first owner, then it was aquired by the current owner in 2004. A restoration was then undertaken.
The bodywork was repainted in its original colour while the L406-1121272 engine was restored to new by a specialist in the Rhône-Alpes region. The car was kept as original as possible. Interior has not been restored.
Today, the Countach is presented in a Blu Notte paint, faithful to the original although some defects of use and application. It retains its original interior requiring complete cleaning and restoration of its headlining. A road test showed that the mechanics and the running gear were working properly. It displays 42,500 kilometers on the odometer.
