Countach 1120070

When someone comes to me bearing "good news" and "bad news" asking which I'd like to hear first, I will typically ask for the bad news first in the hopes the the goods news to follow will somehow cheer me up. The good news for some this past month had definitely been the two consecutive world record high prices achieved for an LP400 Countach at auction or anywhere for that matter. And while the sellers of #1120066 and #1120070 (seen above) might be celebrating along with the new owners of these cars, I will find it somewhat difficult to see the "good news" in this from my point of view, which might also be true for hundreds if not thousands of other non-Countach owning fans. While it is great to see the Countach finally getting its long overdue recognition, this only means that yet another great car has slipped forever out of the realm of possibility that I might ever come to own one some day, along with a few of my other favourites from Lamborghini, the 350GT and 400GT 2+2 which are steadily climbing higher and higher out of reach. Far from being jealous or resentful, though, I do offer a very hardy congratulations to those involved in the above mentioned sales and hope I can, at the very least, expect another ride in one some day. It'll be very interesting to see if the rise in values continues in August at Gooding's Pebble Beach Auction when yet another LP400 will be offered. And be sure to check out below the many other Lamborghini models being offered in this summer's upcoming auctions. The list has never been this long.
