1987 Gold-Plated Lamborghini Countach Is More Extravagant Than All Of The 1980s

If you think the 80s were all about weird hairstyles and white pants worn with the most atrocious colours of clothing, then you haven’t really seen everything yet. While the Lamborghini Countach and the Ferrari Testarossa were the defining motoring style icons of the 80s, there were a few who clearly didn’t believe that a mid-engined, scissor-doored, 455 horsepower, Italian supercar wasn’t “opulent” enough. What this 80s extravagance leaves us with is a 1987 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV with pure white interiors that have been re-trimmed in 14-karat gold!1987 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV For Sale At Villa Erba RM Sotheby's-5

This 1987 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV that’s going up for sale at RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba Sale is one of the two cars that exist in the world with such outrageous gold plated interior. Restored by Lamborghini Polo Historical, the 5000 QV has its steering column, open gate gear shift assembly, instrument cluster, boot and engine handles, door sills and even the exterior badging and exhaust pipe tips plated in gold.

I am assuming the thought process behind this re-trimming would be to use the best, most expensive material that was also period correct. Since carbon fibre wasn’t on production cars in that era, it, of course, had to be gold.

Jordan Belfort would raise a toast to agree!
