Lamborghini Teases The Imminent Return Of Its Legendary Countach Poster Car

Aug 10, 2021

Reviving an iconic model name is a bold move that few automakers are willing to make, as it comes loaded with expectations and it invariably tees you up for a flop. Moreover, as we’ve seen with the Mustang Mach-E, enthusiasts don’t always take too kindly to an electrified reincarnation. In fact, it’s precisely this kind of progress that often prompts the worst of their ire.

So, for Lamborghini to announce the return of its legendary Countach poster car (on the vehicle’s 50th anniversary, no less) is about as brazen as it gets. Of course, at this point, the Sant’Agata Bolognese-based manufacturer is keeping pretty tight-lipped about the details, only teasing a short 20-second video along with an image of the new model hidden under a sheet. However, word on the street is that it’ll feature some kind of hybrid powerplant and be a limited-production vehicle. Leaked images are also leading us to believe that its official model designation will be the LPI 800-4, suggesting somewhere in the range of 800 horses with power delivered to all four wheels. In any case, we’ll know soon enough, as it’s set to make its official debut in the coming days at Monterey Car Week.
