Lamborghini Countach Fractional Ownership / NFTFeb 09, 2023
I had a great call with Valentino Balboni last evening. I am sending the car and two crates containing the engine and transmission to him from Atlanta, GA, in March or April, when he will be able to receive them in Italy.
I'm using CARS - Classic Auto Relocation Service (https://www.carseurope.net). For the curious, it's just under $20,000 all-in to send the car on a plane. The car is irreplaceable, and I don't trust shipping it by sea. My anxiety around it getting to Valentino will be 20 hours if by air versus 20+ days if by ship.
Sandy and I are flying to Italy to arrive just after the car makes it to Valentino’s shop. I need to give him time to evaluate the car. Then we will start the process of deciding what needs to be done to bring it back to its original glory.
I want to bring it back to its original condition, but that is a little complicated. There are superior parts available now, so there needs to be a balance between originality and practicality. I will seek Valentino’s advice on this matter.
The only “aftermarket” items I want right now are the Bravo wheels that will be in one of the crates and the front and rear wings. I will make them removable to vary the look of the car.
