Lamborghini Countach LPI 800 4: Tribute to the Best Lamborghini of All Time

The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800 4 rides a Sian V12 alongside a 48-volt electric motor, whose design evokes this 1971 beast that does not bear the name of a bull.

Amborghini has decided that 2021 and 2022 are the years to honor the combustion engine, since in 2024 all its models will be all-round hybrids. This is demonstrated with the launch of the Lamborghini Huracan STO derived from the competition and which we will talk about shortly.

But this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Countach, perhaps the best Lamborghini in history according to fans of the brand. For this, the house of Sant’Agatha Bolognesse has created the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 with a design reminiscent of the 1971 Countach transgressor but with 21st century technologies.

For this, the house of Sant’Agatha Bolognesse has created the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 with a design reminiscent of the transgressive Countach from 1971 but with 21st century technologies.

The Lamborghini Coutach of yesterday

Thus, it incorporates its naturally aspirated V12 engine mounted in the “Longitudinale Posteriore” (LP) position and combining it with the hybrid technology (I) developed for the Lamborghini Sian. With a combined maximum power of 814 hp (rounded to 800 in its name), which comes from its naturally aspirated engine (780 hp) and its electric motor (34 hp) and transmitted to a permanent four-wheel drive system, which It accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.8 seconds, from 0 to 200 km / h in 8.6 seconds and a top speed of 355 km / h.

Beyond its demanding performance for solvent hands, the Countach was a leap forward in design and became an icon of the sports car of the 80s; In addition to being one of the few models of the brand that does not have the name of a fighting bull.

The Countach LPI 800-4 develops the characteristic lines of the five generations of the Countach throughout its almost 20 years of existence. There are nods to the first production version LP 500 and LP 400. To give the LPI 800-4 its distinctive Countach front end, it is inspired by the Quattrovalvole edition with the lines on the front bonnet, the long and low rectangular grille and the headlights, as well as on the hexagonal-shaped wheel arches. There is no fixed rear wing this time to “keep it out of tune,” according to Lamborghini. The distinctive gills of the original Countach and the side air intakes that go through the doors are incorporated into the shoulders of the car; while the “Periscope” lines running through the roof to the rear of the car.

Some doors that are still scissors and that were first introduced in the Countach and have no longer abandoned the Lamborghini V12s.

The rear of the Countach LPI 800-4 maintains the inverted wedge shape, with the rear bumper featuring a lower line and “hexagon” design that shapes the three-part rear light clusters.

The LPI 800-4 sports the four tailpipes of the Countach family, connected within the carbon fiber rear diffuser.

The original Lamborghini Countach mounted a V12 engine behind the cabin in longitudinal arrangement to improve the weight balance. It had side radiators from Formula 1, forward transmission and a tubular chassis. The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800 4 incorporates the 6.5-liter V12, with a power of 780 hp, is associated with a 48-volt electric motor, mounted directly on the gearbox, which provides another 34 hp (inheritance from the sian as we have said) and that Lamborghini presumes that it is “the only mild-hybrid technology that creates a direct connection between the electric motor and the wheels, preserving the pure behavior of the V12. The electric motor is powered by a supercapacitor that provides three times more power compared to a lithium-ion battery of the same weight. ”

So if any Spanish customer buys it, it will have the ECO environmental label from the General Directorate of Traffic.

Monocoque chassis
The chassis is a monocoque and all the body panels are carbon fiber, so the Countach LPI 800-4 has a dry weight of 1,595 kg, which leaves its weight / power ratio at 1.95 kg / hp . The visible carbon fiber elements of the exterior can be seen in the front splitter, around the front window and the rear-view mirrors, the air intakes on the engine hood and the side sills, also having a presence in interior details such as the dashboard. The mobile airvents made with 3D printing technology, and a photochromic roof – which changes from opaque to transparent at the push of a button – are an example of the conjunction between classic heritage and the technological advances of the 21st century.
