Want some sweet wheels for your child (or your inner child)? You could snap up this mini Countach, but it'll cost you.
To quote Derek Zoolander: "What is this, a Lamborghini for ants? The car has to be at least three times this size!"
If you're wondering whether there's something a little bit off about this closed-roof Lamborghini Countach, you're not wrong.
While it features a fully functioning powertrain, this particular Lambo is a 'Countach Junior' built in 1984 by Italian children's carmaker Agostini Auto.
The miniature Countach has been listed for sale in London by auction house RM Sotheby's and has a listed price range between £10,000 and £20,000, or $AU19,259-$AU38,520.
The shrunken supercar was built in 1984 and began its life as a fifth birthday present for its current owner.
It boasts a 399cc Briggs & Stratton engine with 8.2kW of power, plus a two-speed automatic gearbox with reverse gear.
It's also decked out with 10-inch alloy wheels, a Momo steering wheel and functioning lights, indicators, a horn, a seatbelt and hydraulic brakes.
Of course, no Countach would be complete without functional scissor-opening doors, so your toddler can enter and exit in style.
According to the listing, the mini Countach was recently recommissioned in September 2023, complete with a machine polish and interior detail, wheel refurbishment, and a new battery, fuel lines, spark plug and fuel filter.
Importantly, there's also a sticker reminding its owner it is "not equipped or approved for operation on public streets, roads or highways".
Given some 1984 examples of the original Countach can attract prices north of $1 million, this is certainly an affordable way to get yourself – or more accurately, your child – into a supercar.
The mini Countach will be auctioned on Saturday, November 4, and no reserve has been set. You can see the full listing here.
