SANT’AGATA BOLOGNESE – Lamborghini’s Countach LPI 800-4 has taken to the roads in America for the first time since its unveiling at Pebble Beach from August 13, 2015.
The brand-new super-sports car was accompanied by two of its most important predecessors: the first Countach LP 400 and the last Countach 25th Anniversary unit.
The dynamic debut together with two protagonists of the company’s historic collection were reported to have provided extraordinary and unprecedented images.
The Countach 6.5-litre V12 LPI 800-4 is capable of 814hp; it is powered by a Lamborghini capable of 780 hp, combined with a 48V electric motor, mounted on the gearbox, can provide an extra 34hp of power for instant response and increased performance.
The electric motor is powered by a supercapacitor that can provide three times more power than a lithium-ion battery of equal weight.
The cars will be assembled in a limited run of 112 units but chill – they’ve all be sold already. The number of units is a reference to “LP 112”, the project name used internally during the development of the first Lamborghini Countach.
Buyers from around the world will start taking delivery through the first three months of 2022 – at which point, the automaker says, ”customers around the world who will have the privilege of driving a piece of automotive history re-invented for the future”.
