Right to the end of the Countach production, Lamborghini introduced the biggest changes. Just three years after officially introducing the 5-litre version of the V12, the engine was completely reworked. Displacement was up again, this time to 5.2 litre. More importantly new heads were fitted, which held four valves per cylinder. This 'Quattro Valvole' V12 produced a hefty 455 bhp, making the Countach QV the most powerful road car available, by quite a margin.

The four-valve Countach made its debut at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show and remained in production until 1988. The subsequent 25th anniversary model used the exact same specification, differing only cosmetically. It was the last of the Countachs and it was replaced in 1990 by the Diablo. At that time the very wild Countach had already achieved a legendary status and forever changed the Lamborghini's reputation. Featured is one of the QV Countachs, shown at the 2008 Concorso Italiano alongside a two-valve LP5000.
