    Is that a genuine Lamborghini Countach in the background of this pic (or a kit car)?

    I'm guessing it's the real deal. Not many in the country afaik...

    He seems to have a few other nice cars in the background ...Jaguar XJS?.. Porsche 911..

    That air vent at the wheel doesn't look right.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,941 ✭✭✭Bigus


    Wheels look genuine as do side windows , however , a mix of anniversary skirts without the anniversary vents, can't see enough of the door mirrors to see if theses a genuine , I'd be leaning towards genuine.

    I'd say it's a replica, if it's genuine it seems to be an odd job with the side skirts.

    It's definitely not an anniversary, thee's an extra vent on top of the box above the rear flanks that's missing. Wheels don't look anniversary either. The anniversary wheels are expensive and there were few if any copies made.

    Nice car collection all the same.

    I think its a genuine fake!


    I could be right you know!

    Colour doesn't look right . Michael Madden the car dismantler in Kilkenny has/had a 1990 one but wasn't impressed when saw it. Looked quite small.

    Considering what its worth if real, it wouldn't be outside with bad paint in the rain.

    With the door not closed and a piece of wood under the rear wheel to stop it rolling away..:) and anyway, fake (I'd say fake) or real why the hell would you include it in a pic of something else your trying to pass off as being valuable, all you're doing is attracting time wasting eejits..

    That was the one used in the Lotto ad, It had a Renault 30 v6, it was an awful yoke. He has a genuine Diablo now, so all is forgiven:)

    I recall, back in the mid-1990's, he turned up one day at Windors Car Auctions (Longmile Road) in a lovely '79-KK' reg white Porsche 911 (with a tasty blonde in the passenger seat!) ...wonder if he still has that car? ..and blonde?:D

    It looks a lot better than I thought, maybe it was another one I saw last at the custom bike show in Tramore around 2007/2008.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,614 ✭✭✭ba_barabus


    Coming up as a 3.9litre 'Unknown'

    I wonder is this the same car.

    Something odd about this,claims its a spaceframe build, and wzo488 does not show up on cartell


  • Registered Users Posts: 494 ✭✭68deville


    Sure wasn't there a lamborghini dealer in Macroom in Cork sure in the early
    90s!! Lambo cars it was called,colourful history


  • Registered Users Posts: 835 ✭✭✭mazdamiatamx5


    Not sure about Countachs there was a 2001 Lambo Diablo in Ireland for a while, it was owned by "Funky" who I think was a poster here (may still be but I don't think she posts anymore).

    Yes a Waterford car, saw it several times back in the day. She also had a Morgan, cant remember which one, a spectacular TVR Sagaris with that green/purple flip paint, and a Lotus Elise.



  • Registered Users Posts: 835 ✭✭✭mazdamiatamx5


    Yeah I remember seeing photos of the TVR Sagaris and the Lotus. Never met her but she obviously has great taste in motors.
