rare_japanese_lamborghini_countach_1.jpg

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.
