All-new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 sports car sold out despite the jaw-dropping price tag of over $2 Million.
The iconic Countach was revived as a 814 horsepower supercar to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the iconic name plate.
The LPI 800-4 on the badge stands for Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido (longtidunal, rear-mounted, hybrid).
The numerical suffix is the approximate value of the 814-horsepower and four-wheel drive.
Lamborghini plans to produce just 112 examples of new Countach with deliveries starting in the first quarter of 2022.
Last week, Lamborghini revived the Countach name plate by unveiling the all-new Countach LPI 800-4 at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering in the USA, to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the iconic sports car that ruled the roads in the 70s and 80s.
Now, even if you have all the money in this world, you cannot buy one of the over $2 Million new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 as the automaker has confirmed to TopGear.com that the limited edition car has been sold out.
Volkswagen-owned Lamborghini plans to produce just 112 examples of new Countach LPI 800-4, a nod to the internal codename of the original Countach – LP 112. Deliveries of the new collector fantasy will start in the first quarter of 2022.
During the unveiling, Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, said “the Countach LPI 800-4 is the visionary model of the moment, just like its predecessor”
Winkelmann added that new “Countach not only embodies Lamborghini design and technology, but fully represents our philosophy”
