You’ve seen the photos and the numbers, now it’s time to hear the roar of the Countach’s V12 engine for the first time. Fortunately, YouTube Speedster404 caught the Countach at The Quail on a start and a bit slow ride around the area.
The video is embedded at the top of this page and we only have one word to describe the sound: glorious.
Just in case you didn’t know, the new Countach is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine that alone puts out 769 horsepower (573 kilowatts). However, it gets help from a 34 hp (25 kW) electric motor powered by Lamborghini’s 48-volt supercapacitor technology, bringing the total power to 803 hp (599 kW) at all four wheels via a gearbox. at seven speeds.
That said, the Countach can sprint to 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds and can reach an electronically limited top speed of 221 mph (356 km / h). That said, it’s the fastest, fastest Countach ever.
If the electrified configuration of the new Countach sounds familiar to you, it’s because it uses the same hybrid powertrain as the Sian FKP 37 but with a little less power.
The new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is limited to 112 units worldwide, a tribute to the LP 112 designation of the original prototype. The Italian brand has yet to reveal its price, nor whether all the units already have owners. However, reports indicate that the exotic supercar is priced well over $ 1 million.
