EXTERIOR

Perfect proportions and a futuristic style. The daring, disruptive design that has inspired generations of supercars lives on in this commemorative version, of which only 112 units will be manufactured. The clean lines, the rear longitudinal position of the V12 engine and the iconic scissor doors, now reinterpreted with even sharper edges, make it instantly recognizable and revolutionary at the same time. Exclusive trims have been designed to reflect the car’s unique DNA, such as the solid heritage colors Giallo Countach and Impact White, along with contemporary metallic colors such as Viola Pasifae and Blu Uranus.

DRIVING DYNAMICS

ELECTRIC ENGINE/INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE

Equipped with the same remarkable hybrid motor group as the Sián FKP 37 and the Sián Roadster, the new Countach LPI 800-4 boasts a 780 CV (574 kW) combustion engine that delivers the stunning performance for which Lamborghini’s naturally aspirated V12 is renowned.

4-WHEEL STEERING SYSTEM

The exceptional combination of the Lamborghini Dynamic and Rear-wheel Steering systems enables the Countach LPI 800-4 to deliver top-level, dynamic performance with greater agility at low speeds and optimum stability and control at higher speeds. How does this work? The LDS system adapts to both the speed and the selected driving mode, moving between direct steering and a more indirect mode, while the LRS system manages the rear steering axle by means of two electromechanical actuators. The result is a unique and exhilarating driving experience.

4-WHEEL DRIVE SYSTEM

The new Countach LPI 800-4 has an all-wheel drive system optimized to work specifically with all the new dynamic systems, in particular the Rear-wheel Steering. When grip is otherwise reduced, this innovative system provides excellent performance, assuring the driver of maximum reliability from the Pirelli P Zero tires. Finally, the torque distribution between the front and rear axles changes dynamically depending on the selected driving mode and road conditions.

4-WHEEL ACTIVE SUSPENSION

On the Countach LPI 800-4, the front and rear magnetorheological shock absorbers with pushrod system can adapt the suspension to road conditions and the chosen driving mode. Developed to work with the Rear-wheel Steering system, this suspension system provides ideal response to any conditions and mitigates unwanted chassis movement or rolling.
