Lamborghini re-releases the legendary Countach. The first prototype of the then extraterrestrial Kontach was revealed almost exactly 50 years ago. Now the first photos of the new model have appeared on the Internet.
The new car will be officially unveiled on August 15 at Pebble Beach in the US, but as we’ve come to expect, images of such cars often leak onto the web prematurely – whether or not they are launched by the manufacturer itself. This also applies to the new Countach, about which only a few details have been officially revealed from Lamborghini itself.
According to the famous German magazine cars and sports It is the new Countach based on Cyan. This means that the newcomer, which officially has the LPI 800-4 as an add-on, will get an 800-horsepower V12 and all-wheel drive. Production will also be limited to 112 units. Thanks to twelve cylinders, a battery and a supercapacitor, the hybrid engine generates 812 horsepower.

The last Countach left the Lamborghini factory 31 years ago. About 2,000 copies of the V12 code have been built since 1973, as the angular legacy of the great Miura. Two years earlier, in 1971, the first prototype was presented at the Geneva Motor Show – exactly 50 years ago. In the 70s and 80s of the last century, the Lamborghini Countach poster decorated many boys’ rooms.
Since the smaller Urraco series had to be made ready at the same time, the development of the Countach took a long time. The Italians delivered the first car to the customer in 1974. The design language of the angular sports car runs through the model range to this day, with the exception of the Urus. The V12 mid-engine that was laid longitudinally was modified during the construction period and had 455 hp in the final stage.
