To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Countach’s debut appearance, Lamborghini has unveiled the 2021 Countach.

Lamborghini debuted its redesigned Countach supercar at Pebble Beach this week, and it has a little lightning under the hood, as expected.

There are few sports vehicles with as a solid lineage as the Countach. The design of modern Lamborghini sports cars is based on this sports car. It was also known for its scissor doors, which were also seen on other vehicles from the Italian company. In a nutshell, the Countach could very well be the brand’s defining product, as it is now known for its high-revving machines.

Lamborghini chose to create a special model to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Countach. This limited edition sports car, dubbed Countach LPI 800-4, commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Countach’s maiden appearance (although as a prototype) at the 1971 Geneva auto show. The new model will be limited to only 112 units and is a combination of Lamborghini’s past and present.

The Countach LPI 800-4 is a limited edition supercar with LPI standing for Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido, or Longitudinal Posterior Hybrid; 800 referring to the engine’s maximum combined power of 814cv; and 4 alluding to its permanent four-wheel drive system.

The Countach will be powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine with a 48V electric motor, which means the supercar will keep its renowned engine growl while still utilizing electrons for some of its power. The thermal unit will produce 780cv (a metric unit of horsepower that corresponds to 574kW), while the e-motor will produce 34cv, according to Lamborghini. This results in a 2.8-second 0–100km/h time, an 8.6-second 0–200km/h time, and a top speed of 355km/h.

The Countach is referred to by Lamborghini as “the patriarch of modern super sports vehicle design,” and its characteristic wedge form and sleek, evil lines were a cultural touchstone for many people growing up in the 1970s and 1980s.

In a statement, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann claimed that the new Countach pays homage to its predecessor, but that it is “not retrospective.” “It continues the Lamborghini history of looking forward, of exploring new design and technology paths while honoring our brand’s DNA,” says the company.
