If you like sports cars, you’ve probably heard of the Lamborghini Countach. This sports automobile offers something for everyone from 1974 until 1990, with five generations in various aesthetic extremes. The Countach was designed by the legendary Marcello Gandini who also created the famed Lamborghini Miura, Alfa Romeo Montreal, Lancia Stratos, Fiat X1/9, and Lamborghini Diablo. Despite its cult status, it took Lamborghini 30 years to develop a modern Countach.
We now have the massive 2022 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4, which, as impressive as it is, did not resonate with many people. Reactions to Lamborghini’s new Countach ranged from excitement to disappointment, owing to its relatively antiseptic appearance. People seemed to think it was just another modern Lamborghini with a few nods to the Countach.
The majority of the criticism seems to originate from the fact that Lamborghini’s modern Countach was based on the original Countach LP400 from the early 1970s. The early Countachs were probably not the ones who started the legend. And most people recall the Countach of later years, which was more larger, wider, and more devilishly designed by Horacio Pagani: the renowned Countach 5000 QV.
Despite everything, including the criticism, this limited edition Lamborghini is a remarkable marvel.
This car of only 112 units has a strong silhouette thanks to its precise proportions and futuristic styling. The elegant lines, the V12’s rear longitudinal position, and the distinctive scissor doors, whose new design reinterprets its shapes with an even cleaner cut, make it instantly recognized while also giving it new life. New color combinations such as solid legacy Giallo Countach and Impact White, as well as current, predominantly metallic colors such as Viola Pasifae and Blu Uranus, making it a visual pleasure.
Things couldn’t go any other way on the inside. The cabin is low and straight, and it follows the lines of the exterior ad hoc. There are numerous configurations available, including single, two-tone, and carbon fiber finishes, all with the luxury of Italian craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology.

A modern powertrain lies beneath the Countach’s vintage exterior, which is composed of lightweight carbon fiber.
A 6.5-liter electrically assisted V-12 engine is mounted in the center of the vehicle. A small electric motor is powered by a supercapacitor and works in tandem with the huge gasoline engine to provide up to 802 total horsepower. A seven-speed automatic manual transmission sends this power to all four wheels.
The LP 400 was the first generation Countach, with a longitudinally mounted 4-litre V12 engine producing 375PS, a top speed of 309km/h, and a 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds. Awesome.
What is the price of new Lamborghini Countach 800-4 in 2022?
The new Lamborghini Countach 800-4 embodies what the word Countach implies in Italian: surprise. A true work of art, a delightful surprise for all Lamborghini and automobile enthusiasts.
And artwork is not inexpensive. With a price tag of roughly 1.3 million dollars (more than 25 million 722 thousand pesos), this is a car for someone with good taste, a thirst for speed, and impossibly deep pockets.
His 2022 comparison, on the other hand, is much above. Despite weighing only 1,594 kilos dry, the new Countach accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in 8.4 seconds. Oh, and one more thing: its top speed is 355km/h.
