  • Lamborghini revealed today that it will be bringing back the Countach name, and the teaser video and photo show a wedge-shaped supercar.
  • A photo leaked on Instagram shows the car’s full name to be Countach LPI 800-4, with LPI indicating a hybrid powertrain and the number suggesting it will have nearly 800 horsepower.
  • Lamborghini will take the wraps off the new Countach in the next several days during Monterey Car Week.

    50 years ago, Lamborghini took the covers off the first prototype of the Countach. Now, five decades after the world first saw the radically styled LP500 prototype at the 1971 Geneva auto show, Lamborghini has announced the return of the legendary Countach nameplate, releasing a teaser video today of the upcoming supercar. Notably, this recycled name goes against Lamborghini convention, as the company typically introduces a new moniker for each new model.

    The video doesn’t reveal much—at just over 20 seconds long, the teaser shows a young kid putting up a poster of the original Countach on his wall and asks, "What do you see? A new image ready to be hung on a wall or the rebirth of a dream?" The final shot shows a white, wedge-shaped vehicle in the distance as the narrator announces the revival of the Countach name.

    Lamborghini also provided one teaser image showing the new Countach under a sheet, and although details are indistinguishable, the classic Lamborghini wedge shape is as clear as day. A leaked image posted to Instagram, as spotted by Roadshow, shows the full name to be Countach LPI 800-4, implying that it will be a production vehicle and not a concept. The LPI portion suggests a hybrid powertrain, with Lamborghini using the "Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido" designation once before on the 2014 Asterion hybrid concept. The 800 indicates 800 PS, or 789 horsepower, and the 4 means it will have all-wheel drive. Curiously, the Sian, which used a supercapacitor hybrid system, did not include the LPI suffix, suggesting that the Countach could have a new hybrid setup.

    We expect the Countach to be a limited-production vehicle, with it being too soon for a series-production replacement for the Aventador. The Ultimae final edition of that model was just recently unveiled. The new Countach will likely cost at least a million dollars and will be revealed within the next few days during Monterey Car Week.
