Lamborghini’s Iconic Countach Makes A Triumphant 112-Unit Modern Return

First revealed in 1971, the Lamborghini Countach is one of the most legendary supercars of all time, entering production in ’74 and seeing nearly 2,000 units produced until the plug was pulled in 1990. And with 2021 marking the 50th anniversary since the Gandini-designed supercar made its debut, Lamborghini has opted to commemorate the occasion via a limited 112 unit run of an all-new V12-engined Countach LPI 800-4.

Blending visual themes from the wedge-shaped ‘70s supercar with that of the exotic marque’s contemporary aesthetic DNA, the Countach LPI 800-4 is constructed around a carbon fiber monocoque chassis paired with front and rear aluminum subframes, an electrochromic glass roof, and a full carbon fiber body complete with 3D-printed air intakes and an electronically-powered active aero setup. Mounted in the back is a hybrid 6.5L V12 engine that generates 770hp and 531ft-lbs of torque and is helped along by a 25kW (or 33.5hp) electric motor. Fed to the ground via an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system, the powertrain makes 807hp in total, enabling the 3,516lb Countach to achieve a top speed of just over 220mph and a 0-60mph time of just under 2.8-seconds. Thus far, Lamborghini hasn’t revealed an MSRP for the 2022 Countach LPI 800-4, though it will definitely be both priced quite high and sell out.
