The legendary supercar has finally returned.
The new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 has been unveiled as a hybrid V12 hypercar that will, without question, take your breath away. Its design is clearly inspired by the classic supercar but with a modern twist. The end result is a new Lamborghini hypercar that is an instant icon.
As mentioned before, this most definitely houses a hybrid V12 powertrain as the Aventador Ultimae was the final Lamborghini to be powered solely by a V12 engine. The 6.5-liter V12 engine produces 769 horsepower while the supercapacitor-powered 48-volt emotor provides an additional 34 horsepower for a total of 803 horsepower. With a monocoque chassis and body panels, all made of carbon fiber, the new Countach’s low dry weight of 3,516 lbs means the power will go quite a ways in terms of performance.
For the new Lamborghini Countach’s design, hints of the classic supercar can be found throughout, especially in its silhouette. Upfront are two horizontal headlights, although flip-up heads are obviously not included. In the rear, an inverted wedge shade can be found with taillight clusters that are unmistakably mirroring the classic. There are also four exhaust tailpipes located down low, just like the original. Another design aspect that cannot go unnoticed is the side “gills” that mimic the classic Countach but are much more pronounced. These vents are also located on the doors, which are, of course, scissor doors. These doors open up to an interior that also takes design cues from the original Countach, like the geometric stitching on the comfortable-looking seats.
Lamborghini will be creating just 112 examples of the Countach LPI 800-4, with deliveries starting in the first quarter of 2022. There will be a range of heritage exterior paint options available for the new Countach, including Giallo Countach and Verde Medio, as well as Lamborghini’s modern palette of paints.
