Other Countach units in North America do not have the distinctive characteristics that these two have.

The brand-new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is currently legally present in the US. The revived nameplate, displayed during the 2022 Monterey Car Week, has been given to its first US owners. Even better, these two vehicles will be uncommon and have special characteristics not found in other Countach models in North America.

Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, was present at the exclusive event held at Pebble Beach during Monterey Car Week. He was also joined by Mitja Borkert, Head of Design, and Rouven Mohr, Chief Technical Officer.

The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 will only ever be produced in 112 copies, and they have all already been sold. As shown in the gallery up top, two of these hybrid supercars come in Luci Del Bosco and Bronzo Zante hues. These two Countach models were selected from a broad range of paint color options provided by Lamborghini, and the automaker claims that they are the only ones painted in these exterior hues in North America.

“It is an honor to introduce these works of art to their owners at the Lamborghini Lounge Monterey as we begin the first deliveries of the Countach to our cherished customers in the United States. It was only fitting that we launched the new Countach LPI 800-4 during the prestigious Monterey Car Week honoring automotive excellence because the Countach has long been the source of inspiration for Lamborghini design DNA “Stephan Winkelmann remarked.

The Countach of Today!

“Experiencing the pleasure and passion a customer has when they first see their Lamborghini is always very special for me,” said Winkelmann.

The newest and fastest Countach ever is the Lamborghini LPI 800-4. It generates a total of 803 horsepower (599 kilowatts) from a V12 engine working in tandem with an electric motor, enabling a sprint to 60 mph (97 kph) in 2.8 seconds. The maximum speed is 356 km/h (221 mph).
