The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 - The 50th Anniversary Launch Hitting The Roads In 2022

Starr Luxury Cars Lamborghini Countach LPI 800

One of the most iconic Lamborghini’s ever released onto the market. Noted as being the greatest car they have ever created, the Countach played a key role in crafting the playing field for luxury sports cars in the 70s and 80s. In homage to the foremost model unveiled 50 years ago at the Geneva Motor Show, the Italian marque has now released a limited edition anniversary version – the Lamborghini Countach LPI-800. This hybrid supercar is nothing if not impressive, embodying the original silhouette and bringing it into the 21st century.

Undeniable power behind the wheels of a futuristic legend

If there is one thing that Lamborghini have become synonymously renowned for it’s their vehicle’s silhouettes. Even the most untrained eye can spot one coming down the road, if you’re not initially assaulted by the rumbling sound. This limited edition LPI-800 is nothing if not in par with its predecessor. It sits in the same portfolio as the V12 Aventador but, instead of focusing solely on combustible power, utilises an electric motor to reduce emissions.

The 6.5-litre twelve-cylinder engine independently produces 769bhp. When paired with the 48-volt electric engine, this total power rating goes up by 34bhp bringing the total to 830bhp. A sharp throttle and impressive power mean that, with the 7-speed gearbox, the recorded sprint time to 62mph comes in at 2.8mph with an expected 531lbft of torque. And, if you have the road or track ahead of you, a top speed of 221mph will see you soaring and appreciating every angle of the car.

The body panels are crafted from carbon fibre creating a total power-to-weight ratio of 503bhp per tonne – ideal for speeding around the track. Adding to rigidity, the vehicle also has a power ratio of 1.95 kg/CV to ensure that any drive sends thrills speeding through your body.

A descendant from the original masterpiece

Limited edition luxury cars for hire are often made as direct replicates – designed to look as if the original model had materialised in front of your very eyes. But not the Countach LPI 800-4. It boasts the same iconic silhouette but modernised for a newer market. An evolution that sits in line with other vehicles on the road today, the chassis remains instantly recognisable but stunningly new at the same time. Picture a blend between modern LED taillights and the original deep side grills and you have a vehicle that makes an impact.

A clearly defined bonnet and uninterrupted roofline create a distinctive style with integrated air intakes. The roof itself is photochromatic, changing from transparent to opaque at your company. Those iconic scissor doors are still here, ensuring every head will turn as you slip inside while the choice of heritage colours including the Giallo Countach and Impact White make this a vehicle to be reckoned with.

Even the wheels are an ode to a great. Measuring 20” at the front and 21” at the back, they take on the look of the iconic telephone dial so highly favoured in the 80s. However, the addition of carbon-ceramic brake discs shifts it into the modern world, giving you impressive stopping power and control.

An interior based on the Aventador

The interior is where you’ll notice the modern designs coming through more strongly. After all, the vehicle needs to attract a modern audience with the convenience of tackling our modern roads. Carbon fibre accents wrap around an 8” central touch system with full control over your settings. The marque has stayed true to its celebration of the original Countach. Programmed into the screen, drivers can indulge themselves and watch an animation that walks through the car’s design philosophy.

The cockpit also draws inspiration from the Sián’s with a fighter-jet starter button. Wrapped in deep red leather and enveloped by carefully honed features, any driver or passenger will experience a driving thrill like nothing else.

Out of reach but a celebration of true craftsmanship

When Lamborghini announced the Countach LPI-800 to the audience, the ‘limited-edition’ tag was never hidden away. The marque announced only 112 would ever be produced and with a price tag of €2m (plus taxes). It was always meant to be a collectors car – one designed to celebrate the original craftsmanship to the highest specifications.

While this vehicle is unlikely to ever reach the luxury car for hire market, it is still a true marvel crafted to send thrills through your spine – even if it’s just through the photographs.
