    That's a Prova Countach. It needs a little bit of work. :

    Re: Countach Anyone interested?

    It looks decent! Overall in pretty good shape from what you can see in the pics. What kind of wheels are those? Centerlines? U can't really see them. Realistically, what do you guys think this car is worth?

    Is it really a Prova? It looks like it could be an AFI body. I think the company (AFI) was abbreviated for American Fiberbodies Incorporated or something like that, and were in business in the early to mid 90's. One of their "telltale" signs was that the nose of the car was a bit longer and didn't "swoop" down as sharply as an original Lambo. It's hard to tell in the site's pics tho.

    I agree with Bxtech, AFI body, think those door hinges are another sign. I've never seen one up close but what I recall from the old mags was that it was close to the original but not quite correct on the propotions. Not bad if you got it for under the $6000 the bidding was at.

    That's an AFI, I built one, Bxtech and 88.5countach are right, the proportions are the give away.

    Do I have to have a license to bid on this car? Has anybody here ever bought a car from this site. If so could they help me with the bid process I want to buy this car. I have a countach built by Exotic Illusions and I really like the body style of this car shown on this site. Thansk for posting the link!!

    Picture it white and you've got the same car. Also what was a good give away was the chevy V8. Most of them had V8's.

    Beautiful car but $60K for the Prova, OUCH!

    I love this body style...before the 25th stuff was added. Personally the 25th stuff dates the car....screeeems I'm from the late 80's early 90's. I had a truck back then with the ground effects and all but now I think it's to much. I don't care for imports now with all of the extra stuff either.

    I guess real countachs are way up in price.

    I agree, side windows seem to we too wide, front end is too flat, the roof raises up by the windshield. Still better then some Countach kits that pop up for sale on eBay and craigslist.
