This comes as a shock to no one.
The 2022 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 was revealed this month in some stunning shots picturing it alongside the '70s' original. Not only does it blend the best of the Aventador and the Sian with retro styling that looks fantastic, but its appeal is further enhanced by the fact that just 112 of these will be built. That number is a reference to the original Countach's internal project name during development, 'LP-112'. Like so many other limited-edition supercars out there, it has a spectacularly lofty price (reportedly over €2 million/$2.3 million), but a high price only seems to attract even more interest from the wealthy, and unsurprisingly, all 112 are now sold out.
The news was confirmed to CarBuzz and just goes to show that those with fat pockets are willing to pay for excellence and are just as happy with the idea of waiting too, as the Countach will be delivered to buyers sometime in the first three months of next year.
When these lucky buyers get their hands on their new modern classics, they'll have access to a V12 hybrid power plant developing in excess of 800 horsepower, but as a limited-edition, that power will likely never be used to the full - at least not on public roads.
Fortunately, 2022 Countach buyers will have other, safer features of the car to enjoy, including the use of the Stile button in the cabin. Stile means 'design' in Italian, and pressing this button activates a presentation that explains the design philosophy of the Countach. If that doesn't interest you, just looking at the car should.
As interesting and exciting as the new Countach is, we wouldn't be surprised if a few of these cars end up on auction soon after delivery, so if anyone reading this is among the select few who manages to secure an order, we'd love to have a go in the Countach before it wastes away in a garage for the next few decades.
