Sneak a peek into Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4

Lamborghini Countach was conceived in the 1970s to replace Miura. At the festive event at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering, Lamborghini has unveiled its ambitious production car- The 2022 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4. It is confirmed that the supercar is entering the production stage soon. The model will have only 112 units built, making it a limited-edition hybrid supercar. 

The first-gen Countach has turned 50 this year. Its wedge styling elements later became Lamborghini’s trademark. Stephan Winkelmann, CEO and Automobili Lamborghini President said that “One of the most important automotive icons, the Countach not only embodies the design and engineering tenet of Lamborghini but represents our philosophy of reinventing boundaries, achieving the unexpected and extraordinary and, most importantly, being the ‘stuff of dreams.” He added “The Countach LPI 800-4 pays homage to this Lamborghini legacy, but it is not retrospective: it imagines how the iconic Countach of the 70s and 80s might have evolved into an elite super sports model of this decade. It upholds the Lamborghini tradition of looking forward, of exploring new design and technology avenues while celebrating the DNA of our brand.”

Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 has a recognizable silhouette with sharp lines and bold edges. The company claimed that the inspiration was drawn from the LP5000 Quattrovalvole with a low-set rectangular grille, an angular bonnet, and headlights in the shape of rectangles. It also has hexagonal wheel arches, representative of Countach DNA. It has no rear wing to mess up the wedge-tastic design but it has dominant air intakes on the door and sides to address the cooling issues. It has unique Periscopio lines on the roof ad rear of the car, an “inverted wedge” rear bumper, quad exhaust pipes, and scissor doors. 

The 2022 Countach LPI 800-4 has a 6.5-liter V12 engine that gives out 770 horsepower. The gearbox has a 48-volt electric motor mounted on it which will add 33 horsepower. The combined horsepower thus becomes similar to that of the Sian. The Countach LPI 800-4 can accelerate from zero to 60mph in less than 2.8 seconds, from zero to 124mph in 8.6 seconds, and has a top speed of 220mph. It has a better power-to-weight ratio than Sian with a dry weight of 1,595 kg. It is all thanks to a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and body panels. The photochromatic roof can change from solid to transparent. 

The inside has leather seats with geometric stitches. It also has an 8.4-inch HDMI infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay. The first deliveries are expected by early 2022.
