Earlier this week, a customized amphibious Lamborghini Countach-inspired vehicle, commonly known as the Z1A, was listed on eBay. The bidding price starts at almost £19,000. People referred to it as something that James Bond will kill for.
Basically, the vehicle can drive both on land and on water. Its key exterior features include a smoke ejector, front hydrofoil, and F1 type push-rod suspension. The interior, on the other hand, comes with an overhead console of switches.
However, accordingly, the vehicle is in dire need of some tender loving care (TLC) in order to bring it back to its former glory. To begin with, its seats are apparently missing. The England-based seller believes that it is going to be a valuable purchase for car enthusiasts, claiming that it can be worth as much as £50,000 once restored.
According to the eBay listing, it was never used upon its purchase 15 years ago. The restoration process requires a lot of effort and only a dedicated car fanatic can offer the amphibious Lamborghini Countach a major makeover.
Some of the necessary repair works involved the interior seats, door rams, interior carpet, wing mirrors, brakes, tire replacements, and a fuel pipe. Major overhaul is required before it can be driven both on land and on water. Furthermore, since the Z1A is based in the UK, any interested party is responsible for shouldering all international shipping fees and arrangements.
