Japan is one of those rare countries, like the United States, that cherish and worship automobiles. Cars are truly part of Japan’s culture, so it’s really sad to see a 25th Anniversary Lamborghini Countach, such as this one, sitting underneath a train station gathering dust.
7Tune.com spotted this red Countach sitting quietly for quite some time based on how dusty and dirty it is. With only 627 of these in the world created between 1988-1990, it’s a true rarity to spot one, never mind one that hasn’t been driven for a long time. The 25th Anniversary was the last of the Countach with a 5.2L V12 pumping out 455-hp. It’s sad to know that this exotic machined hasn’t been powered up in a long time. It even sports a Sparco racing seat and Momo steering wheel.
We hope to hear word that this vehicle is reunited with its owner one day. But for now it sits quietly waiting to be driven again, the way it was meant to be.

Breaking news is striking our industry as word has come that 2&4 Motoring, publishers of Best Motoring and Hot Version for over 24 years, will be forced to shut down both operations effective next month.
This is tragic news to many of us who grew up watching some of the greatest JDM vehicles battling it out on the track or in Touge battles on lonely mountain passes. Quite easily one of the biggest influences on the import car culture, both Best Motoring and Hot Version were religiously received by many in anticipation every time a new one was released.
7Tune is reporting that many of the staff will be parting ways and pursuing new endeavors with many of them possibly returning in some form or another in video media. Our hope is that they’ll resurface together rather than fragmented, delivering us hot video goodies online.
