How many of us have found ourselves at least once emptying the garage or cellar of the house of some distant relative, trying to get rid of useless junk and objects that are now unusable? Sometimes, however, there are also much more pleasant situations, such as finding yourself the owner of one Lamborghini Countach and one Ferrari 308. It is not a utopia but the story that happened in 2018 to an American boy who found the two supercars in the garage of his grandparents’ house, discovering the pair of legendary racing cars dusty but still in good condition.
The elderly couple had recently passed away and on going to their home to start tidying up, the young man came across a Countach of 1981 and in the Red of Maranello, both jealously guarded inside the garage. “My late grandfather bought it for his supercar rental business in 1989, – had told the protagonist of this lucky find on Road and Track – but after insurance costs got too high to run the company, he kept some inside garages for over 20 years instead of selling them. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea. ” Apparently the boy had no idea that his grandfather still owned some of those cars and instead he found himself in his hands one of the most coveted Italian supercars by collectors, a car that if sold at auction can reach figures close to 500 thousand. dollars. Judging by the photos that have appeared on Reddit in the past, the Countach with its elegant white livery it only appears dusty and with some signs of wear. Probably after a careful washing and starting the engine you will have realized that you have a real jewel in your hands. Without forgetting the Ferrari 308, another very popular car among collectors. After the discovery, it was never known whether the boy decided to keep his grandfather’s inheritance or to sell the two supercars found in the garage.
