With a surprise announcement, Lamborghini has confirmed that it will reclaim the old name of the new Countach supercar. Most likely it will be a limited edition model. supercapacitor. This will be the second. One of two models confirming CEO Stefan Winkelmann’s debut in early 2021.
Interestingly, the company took inspiration from the previous generation LP400 Countach, in which the eccentric rear spoiler was not associated with the later model. Each page has a slight nod and design style that defines a 50-year-old legend. For example, concave wheel designs and two-piece side windows, and external air intakes are possible.
Autocar UK, a subsidiary that spoke exclusively to Winckelmann, understands the Countach will be a Cyan and Ultimate special edition. It is important to note that this will be the last Lamborghini to feature supercapacitor technology.
“In our opinion, supercapacitors are a connection technology that does not meet future emission reduction requirements,” said Winkelmann. So far, Lamborghini has said nothing about the Countach, saying, “The future is our legacy.
And the new Lamborghini Countach isn’t there yet. “The two biggest motorsport events in the near future will be the Munich Auto Show in September and the previous Monterey Auto Week in California.
The reborn Countach draws power primarily from its turquoise hypercar, combining a stunning 6.5-liter V12 with supercapacitors to boost acceleration and reduce emissions. It basically shares the Sián powerplant, so the total power is around 810 hp. That is, even at a linear speed of 0-100 km / h, it enters in less than 3 seconds. Its top speed is about 354 km / h.
The Countach will be followed in 2023 by the long-awaited successor to Lamborghini’s Aventador supercar flagship, which will keep its V12 engine but adopt plug-in hybrid power as the firm accelerates its transition to electrification.
