There is no car on the entirety of Autotrader that represents the 1980s quite like this one. And it can be yours at Lamborghini Palm Beach for $299,951. That's a lot of money -- but it would make you king of the 1980s.

The car in question is a 1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary, which is an insanely 1980s vehicle in its own right. That's because it took the standard Countach, which came out in the 1970s, and just added all these attention-grabbing things to it, like crazy rocker panels with additional side strakes and a front bumper with even more side strakes and a giant wing that not only could function as a picnic table, but an entire picnic grove in a state park; the kind of picnic grove that people reserve with the park rangers for their annual family reunion barbecue.

And then it's white. And it's not just white. It has a white exterior and a tremendously light tan interior with light tan seats, and light tan door panels, and a light tan dashboard, just one shade off from the iconic white-on-white look that truly screamed big hair and Bon Jovi. Just look at this car. Look at those popup headlights. And tell me this thing doesn't embody every single 1980s car trend taken absolutely as far as each one could possibly go.

Interestingly, the Carfax report shows this particular Countach was sold new into Canada before being quickly registered in Florida -- exactly where you'd expect to see a brand-new Lamborghini in the 1980s. It bounced around to several owners -- including one in Arizona and another, unsurprisingly, in Miami Beach -- before finding its way to Lamborghini of Palm Beach.

And now it can be yours for the low, low ... well, not quite so low ... price of $299,951. Apparently, that's what it takes to be the king of the 1980s.
