The Countach Revival – BookF27

The Countach Revival

The eighties nostalgia is still staging a timeless appeal to our lives, it started with Marc Jacobs and his “Chic 80s” party in Brooklyn followed by the frenzy of the bum bag by luxury brands like Gucci and Supreme X Louis Vuitton, then with the comeback of the hair scrunchie, the shoulders pads, and the pegged pants. The influence stretched to music with 80’s funk and pop huge hits; like Kendrick Lamar’s “King Kunta” and its ode to Michael Jackson; and Bruno Mars “24K Magic,” that sounds like a cross of Prince and One Way, TV was not far to follow with the success of “Strangers Things” and “Dark”.

The latest to enter this revival is the exotic sports car sector and more specifically the luxurious Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV, a car with only 676 models commanding more than half a million dollars at auctions.

The version BookF27 is lusting over is a 1987 5000 QV in white over white, with 14-karat-gold accents; only two models with these specs exist in the world. This high-profile beauty has the Lamborghini trademark scissor doors, the iconic NACA duct on the doors and rear fenders to cool down the engine adequately, a gold-plated shift gate and exhaust pipes that elevate its aesthetic value and makes sure it is still in high demand by big celebrities like Kim Kardashian West who has been seen lusting over a pink model on her Instagram; the caption says it all; “I Want”, and in such a social media based age, it’s due to come back into style just in time for the issuing of drivers licenses for women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
