I definitely wasn’t born in the 70’s or 80’s, so there was no Lamborghini Countach poster on the walls of the bedroom that I and my brother shared. Getting to know the Countach was from watching the movie “Wolf of Wall Street,” Leonardo DiCaprio using his legs to open the scissor door of a white Lamborghini Countach. The 1988 Lamborghini Countach Leonardo made a jest of was an original Countach although it was so hilarious.
At California, in the motor show event, Monterey Car Week, the past was brought to the present celebrating 50th Anniversary of Lamborghini Countach, 2022 Lamborghini Countach hybrid was displayed at The Quail stealing the show. Its actually a delight seeing a vintage super car brought back as a new breed. So, I can go on to paste a poster in my bedroom.
Lamborghini Countach codename PLI 800-4 with Lamborghini 6.5L V12 engine with an electric motor boasting 814hp and sprinting from 0 – 62 mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 220 mph. It’s just so sleek with no actually resemblance to the original countach. The V12 engine alone produces 780 hpand electric motor producing 34 hp controlled by a 7-speed single clutch transmission gearbox to pull the 4 wheel drive beyond limits. The Countach is the first car to ever make use of the scissors door styling created by Marcello Gandini, Lamborghini Countach designer. Lamborghini is producing 112 units of the $2.6 million new Lamborghini Countach that pays tribute to the original Lamborghini Countach codename LP112.
“We’re celebrating not just the car, but the early definition of the concept of the super sports car; what we did with the Countach is not in celebration of one car but the celebration of the DNA of Lamborghini,” Lamborghini’s chief Technical Officer. It’s just a radical breed that looks nothing like the original Countach except just in shape with beauty around. The body and powertrain is based on Lamborghini Aventador also sharing the rear back and hybrid drive of Lamborghini Sian. The 70’s Countach looks raw and weird, surely it should as it came at the beginning of the reign of supercars. The successor of Lamborghini Miura. Can’t shake off Horocio Pagani restyling of the Countach, celebrating 25th anniversary of the Countach.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini Countach, over 29 Lamborghini Countach took over the streets of Pebble Beach and roaring at Weathertech raceway Legana Seca.
