The new car comes with a chassis, panels and other miscellaneous parts that are made out of carbon fiber, giving it a dry weight of 1,595kg. Modern touches include movable air vents and a cool photochromatic roof that can shift from solid to transparent electronically via a touch of button. Of course, no Lambo is complete without the car maker’s signature scissor doors, but Countach purists will be disappointed to know that the new model does not come with pop-up headlights.
Found inside the new Countach is an interior that somewhat resembles the Lamborghini Sián’s, complete with an 8.4-inch touchscreen for managing the car’s controls. The car maker noted that the infotainment system is compatible with Apple CarPlay, but made no mention of Android Auto. Also found in the interface is a “Stile” button, which enables the system to explain to users (assumingly verbally) regarding the Countach design philosophy when pressed – because why brag about your new car when the vehicle itself can do it for you?
Next up is what most of us are eager to find out: its performance. Under the Countach LPI 800-4 is the aforementioned hybrid powertrain, which consists of a 6.5 litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine and a Lithium-Ion supercapacitor-powered 48V electric motor. This enables the car to generate an output of 770 horsepower (hp) via the engine, and an additional 33hp from the motor – totalling up to 803hp when combined. Lamborghini claims that the supercar is able to go from nought to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds and features a top speed of 355km/h, which is on par with the Aventador Ultimae and the Sián.
