Cars at the Capital & Coffee: 1979 ‘Cannonball Run’ Lamborghini Countach
September 25 @ 7:30 AM – 10:30 AM EDT
The Hagerty Drivers Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization is hosting “Cars at the Capital,” a month-long celebration of car culture in Washington, D.C. Held on the National Mall throughout September, this exhibit is free to the public and will feature the 29th and 30th vehicles to be added to the National Historic Vehicle Register. Two additional historically significant vehicles previously added to the National Historic Vehicle Register will also be featured to educate the general public about the cultural significance of the automobile and its role in shaping modern society.
Join us on Saturday, September 25 to view the 1979 Lamborghini Countach LP400 S – Chassis No. 1121112 (from The Cannonball Run). Courtesy of owner Jeff Ippoliti, this radically styled mid- engine exotic was a landmark car in an era when economy and practicality had eclipsed performance and passion. The “Cannonball Run” Countach is restored to perfectly evoke its significant role from the classic ‘80s film and is equally shocking to see today as it was back then. This supercar is the 30th vehicle to be added to the National Historic Vehicle Register.
