Lamborghini recently released a short video showcasing the limited-edition Countach LPI 800-4 rolling on the road – as it should be. The $2.6 million hybrid-supercar is joined in the video alongside its older siblings, an original Lamborghini Countach LP 400, and a Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary edition. This retro-inspired modern reboot of the 80s icon is meant to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of Lamborghini’s more recognized models. Lamborghini built only 112 units, with the production number paying homage to the company’s nickname for the Countach, “LP112”, during its development in the 1970s. Even with the eye-widening price tag, all Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 sold before the car premiered – much to the surprise of no one.
The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 debuted in August 2021. This car features Lamborghini’s first hybrid drivetrain that premiered in the limited-production 2019 Sian FKP 3. It’s a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 producing a healthy 780-hp. In addition, it features a 48-volt electric motor that adds another 34-hp for a combined output of 814-hp. When the Sian debuted, it was Lamborghini’s first hybrid and its most powerful production model to date. Now, due to the car’s rarity and today’s hot market for the 80s and 90s nostalgia, there is no way of telling if the 112 people who purchased a Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 will use the car as intended when deliveries start in 2023. All we can do is watch the video and imagine taking one of these special edition Lambos on a 1,000-mile grand tour.
