There’s nothing quite as satisfying as watching a video of a barn find getting its first wash in years.
There’s just something about seeing the transformation that makes it so addictive.
We spotted a Lamborghini Countach that hadn’t been moved for 20 years getting detailed over on the AMMO NYC YouTube channel and the results were incredible.

The great thing is that, at the start of the video, we’re given a bit of background information on the vehicle.
Supposedly, the Lamborghini Countach 5000s was delivered to its new owner in Rome, Italy in June 1984.
It’s a European spec two-valve carbureted car with no wing, weighing 3,320 lbs (1,505 kg) with a base price starting around $99,500.

321 units were built, but only between 40 to 50 of those units ever made it to the U.S.
This particular example traveled transatlantic and was found by wearecurated.com in Connecticut.
To be honest, it was in a pretty sorry state, full of mice urine and feces.
It desperately needed a full restoration detail before going to Curated in Miami to be fully restored prior to going on sale.
Not only was it a disgusting biohazard, the paint was very thin in some places and thick in others, indicating it was painted by hand.
You really have to watch the video to see how bad it was and to see the effort that was put into bringing the Lamborghini Countach back to life.
AMMO NYC got to work detailing the car, starting with a power wash before measuring the paint and then machine polishing the car.
They then set to work removing the retrofitted wing, trunk and fiberglass, before lifting the car on a ramp to clean the underside with a power wash.
The wheels were next to be cleaned before attention was turned to the cabin of the car which, as previously mentioned, was a severe biohazard.
Finally, the Lamborghini Countach received a top coat to protect its paintwork before making its way down to Miami.
Lamborghini Countach disaster detail
Fair play to AMMO NYC – the Lamborghini Countach looked amazing when it was finished being detailed.
The before and after is huge – see for yourself by watching the video.
