Official details and more photos are coming soon.
We knew this one was coming and now it's leaked online perhaps only a few hours prior to an official debut. What you're looking at is the reborn Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4, set to premiere shortly at this year's Monterey Car Week at Pebble Beach. Lamborghini has been releasing teaser images up until just a few hours ago but this is the real deal.
The new Countach's exterior styling is heavily borrowed from its iconic ancestor, such as the rectangular headlights (sadly no pop-ups), large black side air vents with several slits directly above them behind the side windows, angular wheel arches front and rear, and a retro taillight design. We're smitten.
The Aventador-based Countach is a hybrid, a fact given away by its 'LPI' designation. It'll have a total of 789 horsepower (800 PS) and all-wheel drive. Power will come from the familiar 6.5-liter V12 paired to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, similar to the powertrain found in the Sian.
Production is slated to be limited to only 112 examples with a price tag rumored to be around $3 million a pop. Lamborghini will have zero problems selling each and every one, if it hasn't happened already. The Aventador is about to be retired so using it as the basis for a new Countach celebrating the original's 50th anniversary makes total sense.
As you can see, the debut model is finished in white but we don't know just yet whether additional exterior colors are offered. No interior shots have leaked at this time. This isn't the first time Lamborghini has paid tribute to one of its icons with the Aventador serving as the source.
Back in 2016, the Aventador Miura Homage debuted but it wasn't anywhere unique since it lacked specially designed sheet metal. It was really more of a styling and paint job done very well. The Countach LPI 800-4 is quite different. Stay tuned for complete details as they're coming quite soon.
