Red Ferrari 308 and a white Lamborghini Countach left abandoned

TWO supercars left abandoned and covered by sheets and dust for more than 20 years have been uncovered by a family member at her grandmother’s house.

Unbelievably, a red Ferrari 308 and a white Lamborghini Countach can be seen hanging out together in a dirty old garage. The Lambo appears to be a 1982 LP500S, a 5.0-liter V-12.

The find was spotted by the granddaughter at her grandmother’s house in the USA. The first thing she did was ask her boyfriend to take a look to see what condition they were in.

According to social network site Reddit, user Eriegin said the cars were left in there by her grandpa.

“Despite the dust and rust, Grandma’s 1981 Lamborghini Countach is the coolest,” user Eriegin stated.

“My late grandpa bought it for his exotic car rental business in 1989, but after insurance costs became too high for him to operate the company, he kept the cars outside in leaky garages for 20 plus years instead of selling them.

“Yesterday I saw it for the first time since I was a kid and damn. Pulling the cover off made me feel like an archaeologist.

“This kind of car abuse hurts my soul. But it’s also kind of incredible and rare to see something so beautiful (and valuable) in this condition. If it were up to me, I’d get it running again and clean up the interior but keep the exterior close to as is. It has character and tells the story of the car which sets it apart from any other Countach around. I can honestly appreciate that more than a perfect paint job.

“I know she’s looking to get rid of them sometime soon but they’re not officially for sale, per se. Accepting offers maybe?”

The garage looks like a goldmine.

There appears to be other interesting cars sharing the garage space, if you take a closer look at the photos.

The photos show the Ferrari 308 and by the looks of it a MG T-series just behind the Lambo, and eriegin also mentioned her grandparents used to have a 300 SL Gullwing.

It’s unbelievable that these cars have been left to gather dust – but what a find!

Whether the cars get restored and put up for sale or not, enthusiasts are hoping to see these 80’s classics back on the road soon.
