RM Paris 2016 – 1981 Lamborghini Countach LP400S Series III in Iconic Sunflower Yellow

 Many would point to the Lamborghini Countach as the world’s first hypercar — a vehicle so extreme, it sent even seminal supercars like the Miura to the backburner of automotive daydreaming.

This beautiful 1981 LP400S is arguably one of the greatest examples in the car’s 30-year production run.

What makes this particular vehicle so special?  Its lovely, original condition and its eye-popping sunflower yellow paintwork.

Yellow is a famous shade for the Countach — the original concept wore this same bright shade ten years before.
