Autotrader Find: Surprisingly Good Lamborghini Countach Replica for $41,000

Here’s a surprisingly nice Lamborghini Countach replica. It’s based on a 1984 Pontiac Fiero — but unlike most Fiero-based Countach replicas, this one is a shockingly faithful copy, and I suspect most casual Lamborghini fans wouldn’t be able to tell it apart from the real thing from the outside. And now it’s listed for sale on Autotrader.

According to the listing, this Countach replica started life as an ’84 Fiero, but the chassis was stretched in order to more closely match the lines of the Countach — an important consideration, since the wheelbases of the two cars don’t match up. With the stretch, however, it’s perfect — and the resulting replica is shockingly accurate. I’ve driven a Countach and been around many at car shows, and even I would have a hard time telling apart this one from a real one.

That’s especially true because the converter of this car into a Countach replica even went as far as replicating the interior. Usually, kit car makers stop at the exterior, since the interior is an expensive conversion and largely unnecessary — but this car has the right center tunnel, the right seats, the right gated shifter and even the right square dashboard. It’s an impressive conversion on every level. As for the engine, the Pontiac motor is gone, replaced instead with a GM 350 cu in. V8 that’s mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

Anyway, now this well-executed Countach replica can be yours. It’s offered by a private seller in San Pedro, California, in the Los Angeles area, and it comes with a short list of problems to be solved — a small oil leak, chipped paint and a few other minor things. The seller says it’s traveled just 10,700 miles and it’s currently listed for $41,000.
