I think it's fake simply because you wouldn't think to post it if it were real.

Good psychological thought.. But why would I not post pics of a real one instead ?

I cant tell you if its mine or not as that would give it away..
I cant show engine pics either..
Plates on the car have been ereased.. so why not post ?

I reckon it is a very good replica, for the reasons above, but the interior looks a pretty original design and very authentic.

based on the interior I would say it's real...however I also think the car has been re-painted due to the lack of a neoprean bead between the wheel wells and body

REAL!
I say it's real.. a LP500 QV ...I've compared pratically everything (even the dash symbols) and all matches, I really can't find anything that differs from the real one. The only thing that still makes me just a bit doubtful is the incription in the window glass.. cause it's a bit unsual to find written stuff on Lambo windows.

Anyway, if it is really a fake, it's a very well made replica!!

Fake

Well, it is a really good replica. But I would have to say it was a fake. The rear wing doesn't seem to be mounted in the correct location or is off by just a little, and the rims don't seem correct. There are some other little things buging me about it but for the most part everything seems to be correct.

I'd say its fake for a number of reasons:
-The spoiler doesn't look as angled as a real countach
-Just doesn't look right
-You said you can't show us engine pics
-The a/c vents(or the passenger one) seems a bit too large
-It seems to not sit right
Those are my opinions.

Something doesn't look right, the gaps are inconsistent. The wheels look extremely suspicious. Either it's a kit or a Countach that was crashed and repaired.

What does that mileage say? looks like 318109... if this is true then when did they start making replicas? It would be difficult to get in so many miles so fast on a late 90's replia...

Well, looks to me like I'm the only one here with a bit of brains (IQ = 175) :finger:

It's a REAL lamborghini countach 5000LP, berkelusa said so himself here...
http://www.nhlotteryonline.com/lambo/index.html

However, he builds countach replicas for life, and seems to do so very professionally too. Good job!
