Lamborghini hit a home run with this modern Countach; the original car struck the imagination and marked a generation

It was to be expected; Less than a week after its presentation, all 112 early production versions of the new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 are already sold out, according to a Top Gear report.

Lamborghini plans to deliver the first units in 2022.

Unveiled last Friday during the Monterey Car Week, the Countach LPI 800-4 takes styling cues from the original Countach and is more importantly a tribute vehicle. Under her beautiful body panels, the car is actually an Aventador. The difference is that it uses a hybrid powertrain similar to the one used in the Sián launched in 2019.

Lamborghini's 6.5-liter V12, remains behind the driver, but it is assisted by a small electric motor integrated into the transmission. Electricity is recovered during braking and is stored in a capacitor instead of being stored in a conventional battery., 100% online, shop for your next car, buy online and get it delivered to you anywhere in Quebec!

The V12 engine alone delivers 770 horsepower, while the total output of the drivetrain with the electric motor is 803 horsepower. It’s a little less than the 807 hp in the Sián, but then again ...

Lamborghini claims the modern Countach can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.6 seconds. Pretty good!

Now, what will be interesting to watch is the emergence of models on the used/collector car market. Some have certainly got their hands on a car to keep it, while others will certainly want to make a profit when it’s time to do so.
