Lamborghini has put our minds at rest on all the rumours around a new Countach being released and as it stands, they have! But how have they managed to keep this project so secretive? Even Apple can't pull it off...
How do you even put forward the proposal in a business meeting that "we" should bring back the Lamborghini Countach? Just that alone has us asking too many questions for a healthy mind to comprehend. The Countach was an absolute icon, don't get us wrong, but why the Countach? And is it safe to assume that we could possibly see a return of the Successor, the Diablo? Or even better, the Murcielago?
But let us just absorb what Lamborghini has done, for a minute, as there seems to be some reason as to what the new Countach signifies. It's been 50 years since the original debut of the Countach back in 1971 at the Geneva Motorshow and Lamborghini now has made a very limited run of a new version which they call the LPI 800-4
as a tribute to their poster-worthy classic with only 112 samples to be made.
We can clearly see that the design pays homage to the original Countach but all those elements have been squeezed into the bodywork press of that of a Sian and what we receive is something that appears to be more sentimental than a jetfighter made available to the general public.
Performance, Powertrain & Specs:
The new Lamborghini Countach will feature a very similar platform to that of the Sian with a carbon fibre monocoque, aluminium subframes to strengthen the suspension, a Tesla-hating naturally aspirated 6.5 litre V12 which has a small electric motor glued on to it to push out even more power from time to time.
All this raw power goes to all four wheels through a 7-speed independent shifting rod (ISR) single-clutch assisted manual gearbox (Don't get too excited, it's still padel shifters).
The new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 makes a beautiful 814bhp (With 32bhp extra coming from that electric motor). Its total weight is just 1595kg and has a 0-60mph time of just 2.8 seconds and a traffic officer hating top speed of 207mph!
On Lamborghini's YouTube channel a new video was released showcasing the design of the new Countach and a refresher to what the old one looked like, but the video itself looked like the creative team hired out a 12-year-old TikToker to film it. Perhaps in the near future, we will see Supercar Blondie reading out the brochure and pushing the engine start button, then finally someone perhaps giving it a proper go around a track...
