Lamborghini Countach Wing

Spotted for sale is a New Lamborghini Countach Wing for over $10,000 USD. Due to the rarity of the wing the seller wants upwards of $10,000 USD. He believes that the rarity of his wing should command a much higher price compared to an aluminum wing. He is basing this on the last sale price of an aluminum wing. This wing was purchased from a shop that was closing down. This wing was stored in a factory oem box and never mounted on a Countach for over 30 years. The box is currently missing but seller is working on locating it. This wing is fiberglass and not aluminum like the other Countach wings.

I am curious as to the value of this particular plastic Countach wing?

Is it worth more or less than an aluminum Countach wing?

Which is more rare?

Pair of Lamborghini Espadas

Spotted in Arizona is a pair of Lamborghini Espadas for sale for $65,000 USD. The first is a 1969 example with serial number 7302 and the other is a 1972 serial number 7861. They will only be sold as a package and most likely will require both to make one good Espada. However, it should be noted that there is only 1 12 cylinder Lamborghini engine and drivetrain included in the sale. Its good to know that both have clean titles and have been in dry storage for the last 30 years.
