Lamborghini Calculate! What a good design. Countach is more attractive than Jaguar E-Type and several times more radical than Merc’s gullwing. It is a car that defines the type of super sports car. Is there a more original, bolder or better design? The simple answer is no. Since then, the design template of all Lamborghini supercars has been formed, which is a car that preserves the source code of Lamborghini. Now that 50 years have passed, Lamborghini has designed a new one as a tribute.

  • 112 units only
  • 800 horsepower, 6.5-liter hybrid V12
  • Will not be available in India

Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4: What is it?

With the new Countach or LPI 800-4, Lamborghini has recreated an icon. Immediately recognized as Countach, even though the design is completely new and modern, the new car has been recreated to represent the appearance of Countach, if it had never been removed from the series.

Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4: Design

Although the design is not as clean or pure as the modern Porsche 911, Lamborghini designers used a lot of new parts, especially in the rear of the car.

The nose is a pure Countach; the horizontal slot-like origin on the front (the name is neatly inserted), the position of the headlights and the engraving on the hood-these parts are obviously from the original. The front wheel arches and sunken window lines have evolved like Diablo, and the designer has also evolved the iconic NACA air duct (the National Aviation Advisory Committee is the predecessor of NASA), and a large rectangular fighter jet-like an advance on the roof. Breath. At the tail, the flat two-dimensional tail is replaced by something more angular. However, the double-pod, almost catamaran, arrangement has been maintained.

Which parts of the design manager Mitja Borkert particularly like to keep? “The first production car was called Periscopio, so look at the top view of the new LPI 800-4, you can see this Periscopio line and the small windows; the latter created such that the driver can spot the traffic behind. Then come to me Said that the highlight of Quattrovalvole (one of the later versions) is the enlarged cab (arch), which has a hexagonal shape.”

Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4: Powertrain

Under the hood, Countach is equipped with the brand’s famous 6.5-liter V12 engine, but equipped with a super capacitor to improve acceleration performance and reduce emissions. The V12 itself can produce 780 horsepower, while the electric motor can produce 34 horsepower. Hybrid V12 Hybrid power output 800 horsepower, sent to all four wheels through a permanent all-wheel drive system. All of this enables the new Countach to complete a 0-100 km/h sprint in 2.8 seconds, accelerate from 0-200 km/h in 8.6 seconds, and then reach a top speed of 355 km/h.

CTO Maurizio Reggiani said that the new Countach is different from Sian. .. “We have 780 horsepower, and we have 770 horsepower in Xi’an. In terms of hardware, the super capacitor in the motor is the same, 48V can provide 34hp. But the difference between Sian and Countach lies in the application, here we try to emphasize more power Torque transmission.”

Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4: The meaning of the name

Countach is one of the few Lambos not named after bullfighting. In Piedmontese, the word Countach is actually an expression of surprise or surprise. Literally meaning plague or pandemic, this expression was used by one of the teams that made the original prototype. .. The name gets stuck. Another unique feature of the new Countach name is the LPI logo-where “LP” stands for Longitudinale Postiore (visible on all rear-engine models) and “I” stands for hybrid.

Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4: Will it come to India?

Lamborghini has confirmed that it will only produce 112 examples of the new Countach. This number represents the “LP 112” internal project name used during the development of the original Lamborghini Countach. Unfortunately, the new Countach will not be available in our market because Lamborghini will only produce it as a left-hand drive (LHD) model. Then there is the small issue of price; the cost here is about 250 million rupees.
