Lamborghini Has Confirmed The Return Of The Famous Countach Nameplate
- Lamborghini revealed today that it will be bringing back the Countach name, and the teaser video and photo show a wedge-shaped supercar.
- A photo leaked on Instagram shows the car’s full name to be Countach LPI 800-4, with LPI indicating a hybrid powertrain and the number suggesting it will have nearly 800 horsepower.
- Lamborghini will take the wraps off the new Countach in the next several days during Monterey Car Week.
The video did not reveal much information-only a 20-second trailer showed that a child posted an original Countach poster on his wall and then asked: "What did you see? A piece to be hung on the new image wall on the wall or the rebirth of dreams?" The last shot shows a white wedge-shaped vehicle in the distance as the narrator announces the revival of Countach's name.
Lamborghini also provided a teaser image showing the new Countach under a sheet. Although the details are indistinguishable, the classic Lamborghini wedge shape is as clear as daylight. The roadshow found that a picture leaked to Instagram showed the full name is Countach LPI 800-4, which means it will be a production car, not a concept car. LPI recommends the use of a hybrid system. Lamborghini used the name "Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido" in the 2014 Asterion hybrid concept car. 800 means 800 PS or 789 horsepower, and 4 means it will have all-wheel drive. The strange thing is that Sian, which uses the supercapacitor hybrid system, does not include the LPI suffix, which indicates that Countach can have a new hybrid setting.
We expect the Countach to be a limited-production vehicle, which is too early for a mass production alternative to the Aventador. The Ultimae final version of this model has just been unveiled recently. The new Countach may cost at least $1 million and will be announced during Monterey Car Week in the next few days.
