Besides being the star of the 2021 Monterey Car Week, the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 also was one of the most discussed new supercars on social media. We haven’t heard much about it ever since, until now.
Varryx recently captured the Countach prototype near the Lamborghini factory. It is the first time we’ve seen it out on the street. It seems to be the same Countach that was presented at Pebble Beach. You can see the ‘Countach’ nametag under the temporary license plate, as it exits the factory gate.
As you know, the new Countach is a tribute to the original. In my opinion, the designers have successfully captured the essence of the LP 400. It’s also one of the last supercars to be based on the Aventador.
The Countach LPI 800-4 is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine mated to a hybrid system that uses a supercapacitor instead of a conventional lithium-ion battery. While this setup is similar to the Sian, peak output has been boosted to 814 hp. This supercar can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds and will hit a top speed of 220 mph.
