It’s been 50 years since the Lamborghini Countach debuted at the 1971 Geneva Auto Show and the good news is that Lamborghini has announced that it’s coming back.
Lamborghini made the big announcement on Twitter, but all the big details aren’t known yet. A leaked on Instagram was discovered by Roadshow, which shows the full name will be Countach LPI 800-4. The LPI portion of its name suggests that the Countach will be powered by a hybrid powertrain, since Lamborghini used the “Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido” name in 2014 for the Asterion hybrid concept. The 800 hints at 800 PS, or 789 horsepower, and the 4 at the end of the name means it will have all-wheel drive.
We’ll have all the details in a few days when the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 debuts during Monterey Car Week.
