Lamborghini’s Countach stands as a timeless symbol of power and elegance in the automotive panorama. This icon was reimagined for the modern era with the unveiling of the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4. Hybridized yet retaining its core character, it captured hearts worldwide in 2021, with all 112 global units immediately claimed.
Australia has been graced with two of these motoring masterpieces among the privileged nations. The streets of Melbourne recently saw the arrival of the first, leaving the automotive community in awe.
What makes This Countach so special
The standout feature of this Melbourne-delivered beauty is its unique Verde Abete shade, a nod to the timeless British Racing Green. Complementing this are bronze wheels, designed in homage to the original Countach, seamlessly blending nostalgia with modernity. The black brake calipers also add to their athletic charm, embracing the carbon ceramic discs.
Elegance Inside Out
The interior is a testament to luxury. A serene tan leather envelopes occupants, stretching across seats, even the transmission tunnel, door panels, and the headliner. This plush ambiance is punctuated by the Lamborghini logo, intricately embroidered into the headrests and offset by detailed black stitching.
Beyond its arresting aesthetics, the Countach LPI 800-4 is a beast under the hood. Drawing from its sibling, the Lamborghini Sian, and further from the iconic Aventador, it boasts a formidable 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine. Paired with an electric motor and a supercapacitor, it delivers a staggering 803 hp and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque.
Acquiring such a blend of history, opulence, and performance comes at a price. While exact numbers remain elusive, few reports suggest that each of the two Countach LPI 800-4 units in Australia is valued at around AU$5 million ($3.21 million).
In an era of automotive marvels, the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 stands distinct – a nod to the past while embracing the future. As it graces Melbourne, this masterpiece promises thrilling drives and an experience of timeless elegance and unmatched legacy.
