The V12-powered truck is finished in Bianco Perlato paint over Red interior, and still wears its original Pirelli “Sand Lip” tires and factory plastic seat protectors. Even the factory keychain is present!Continuing the Lamborghini train is a 1988 Lamborghini Jalpa, believed to be the last example produced for North America. It’s finished in Nero over Nero with white piping and white Silhouette wheels, and has eclipsed 3,200 miles, all on its original Pirelli P7R tires.It wouldn’t be a 1980s collection without a Countach, and this one is in fine form. Wearing Nero Tenebre exterior paint and Cream leather interior, this 1989 25th Anniversary Countach shows just 2,600 miles on the odometer.An unsung hero of the performance sector, a 1991 Lotus Esprit X180R is a unique and interesting addition to the collection. Just 20 examples of the vehicle were produced as a street-legal homologation special, and this one features just 499 original miles.Finally, a 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC AMG with a 6.0-litre four-valve V8 rounds out the lot. According to Curated, The Mercedes is possibly “the most documented and well-preserved example of an original AMG 6.0-liter four-valve in existence.”LISTEN: Canada’s hard-charging EV pioneer Kent Rothwell joins podcast center_img RELATED TAGSLamborghiniLuxuryClassic CarsLuxury CarsClassic Cars & TrucksLuxury VehiclesNew VehiclesSupercarsInstagram We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. advertisement Trending Videos A collection of awesome 25-plus-year-old vehicles is coming up for sale, featuring some of the greats from the ’80s and early ’90s.The firm behind the sale, Curated, calls it “The Time Capsule Collection,” and says it features some of the best cars from the era when Crockett and Tubbs were the kings and if your ‘do wasn’t full of hairspray, you weren’t hip to be square.All the vehicles were owned by a single collector, and have been preserved to an extremely high standard.
