An abandoned Lamborghini Countach has been uncovered in Dubai.
Photos of the 1980s Countach show it in a state of total neglect, covered in a thick layer of dust and with no air left in its tires.
When images of the Countach popped up on social media they quickly went viral.
The Countach is arguably one of the most significant Lambos ever made, and it helped cement the brand’s place in Italian automotive royalty.
Unsurprisingly people were shocked someone had allowed such an iconic supercar to collect dust in the Dubai heat.
“Restore that and it’s worth some serious money,” one commenter said.
He’s not wrong, the Lamborghini Countach goes for around $500,000 today but can fetch over $1 million.
But as someone else pointed out, it would also cost “serious money” to restore.
“Sands and extreme heat can take a real toll,” they said.
“That car’s going to need a lot more than just a tire change if it’s been sitting in a garage in the middle of a desert since the 80s,” another said.
One guy joked it was “obvious” why the car had been abandoned.
“Oh I see the problem, it had a flat tire so the owner just purchased another one,” he said.
A couple of eagle-eyed viewers noticed something entirely different about the images.
“Look behind this car,” one guy said, referring to a Rolls-Royce in similar condition.
Behind the car, we can see what looks like a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, which some were more excited about than the Lambo.
Abandoned supercars are a sad, but all too common sight in Dubai.
Over the years, a number of seriously expensive and rare supercars have been abandoned, including this Ferrari Enzo.
One of just 400 units, the Enzo was impounded by the Dubai police and fortunately stored out of the oppressive Dubai sun until they could decide what to do with it.
