Rod Stewart’s old Lambo is up for sale and is tipped to sell for close to £1million.

The iconic red 1977 Lamborghini Countach LP400 was owned by the singer for 25 years.

He bought it while touring in Australia.

But Stewart, 78, loved it so much he took it with him to the USA when he lived there and then back to the UK.

The sports car – one of only 157 ever made – boasts a top speed of 180mph.

The guide price is up to £920,000.

It is part of a stunning collection of 87 flash motors going under the hammer at once on February 1.

The listing reads: “The Countach offered for sale here was built in right-hand drive for export to the Australian market, where it was purchased by singer Rod Stewart while on tour in the country.

“Leaving the Sant’Agata production line in June 1977, the car was first painted in Rosso with Tobacco trim, and later followed Stewart in relocating to Los Angeles.

“While in the USA, the musician commissioned Albert Madikian Engineering to carry out modifications including conversion to a full wide-body kit, and then installing an open-top targa roof.

“The LP400 was brought to the United Kingdom in 1987, where it would stay in Stewart’s ownership for 25 years, as it was sold in 2002.”

The Sotheby’s auction also includes a 2022 Bugatti Chiron Profilée.

It is set to sell for up to £4.8million and is dubbed “one of the most cutting-edge hypercars in existence.”

Only 500 were ever made and it boats a top speed of 236mph.

If it’s slightly out of budget for a mere £3.7million there is a  2003 Ferrari Enzo among the lots in the Paris auction.

It has just over 10,000 miles on the clock.

A 1964 Aston Martin DB5 is tipped to sell for up to £682,000.

It is like he one that appeared in James Bond movie Goldfinger.

A 1951 Porsche 356 ‘Split-Window’ Coupé By Reutter, hailed as “Porsche’s first great sportscar” is set to sell for £480,000.

At the cheaper end of the auction is a 1984 Agostini Countach Junior ‘Closed Roof’ Car.

It is listed for about £17,000 but is just a kids ride in toy.

The auction taking place in Paris is the largest of its kind ever there.
