The Countach 25th Anniversary, the last evolution of the Countach project, debuted at the Paris Motor Show in September 1988. Actually, the need to replace the Countach was foreseeable as early as 1985, when engineer Luigi Marmiroli took Giulio Alfieri’s place at the head of Automobili Lamborghini’s technical office. It had already been in production for over fourteen years, but in the meantime it was decided to refresh the Countach with a new version that would be called the 25th Anniversary to celebrate the company’s 25-year history.
The aesthetic updates were significant, while those to the mechanicals and chassis were minor. The engine received an improved cooling system and the suspension was tuned differently to better suit the new Pirelli P Zero tyres. The passenger compartment was revised and made more comfortable thanks to electrically adjustable seats with less padding and electric windows. The body style was significantly revised by the young Horacio Pagani, who was working for Lamborghini at the time. He rounded off the shapes and better integrated the exterior appendages, such as the wheel arch extensions and the panels under the doors. Visible features of the 25th Anniversary, in addition to the new modular aluminium wheels, are the air intakes positioned in the rear, which have been made rounder and longer to include the hot air outlet. These modifications, some of which were taken directly from the Countach Evoluzione prototype, made the 25th Anniversary the Countach with the best results in terms of aerodynamic downforce and penetration.
The 25th Anniversary featured a significant difference between the “US” version, which was equipped with electronic fuel injection, and the rest of the world, which was still equipped with carburettors. The very last Countach, a 25th Anniversary, was produced on 4 July 1990 with European specification. Its exterior was Argento Metallizzato (Silver Metallic) and had a grey leather interior. This Countach was car number 658 of the 25th Anniversary series, the most produced in Countach history, and brought the total production number of the Countach model to 1999 cars.
