Everybody dreamed at a point of his life to drive at least once one of these and a lucky man just put his hands on a rare 1979 Lamborghini Countach LP400S Series I.
One of the biggest finds in the automotive world, was listed by RM Auctions on their website, and it was sold for the price of $1,012,000 to a lucky, and of course rich bidder.
Produced by the Italian automaker Lamborghini from 1974 to 1990, the Lamborghini Countach was the first model on which a Lamborghini trademark first started, the scissor doors.
The LP400S Series I Lamborghini Countach was the second generation of the model, released in 1978.

But you don’t have to take my word for it, I will let the next photos speak for themselves, and also, you should bring a pare towel or something because you’re about to start drooling over this car.
