The brand new Lamborghini Countach has been noticed out within the wild mere months after the marque introduced it was bringing again its most well-known nameplate.
Over the weekend, automobile YouTuber Varryx uploaded the primary footage of the Countach LPI 800-4 driving on a public highway to his channel. The results of what they known as “weeks of stalking,” the video represents the automobile’s first public look since its debut in August, and means that deliveries of the limited-run automobile will happen subsequent 12 months as deliberate.
In Varryx’s footage you may see a superb white Countach, which can or will not be a prototype, exiting the gates of what we will solely assume is a Lamborghini manufacturing facility (the video description is scant on particulars). After cautiously edging out of the construction, the hybrid takes a proper flip and begins to motor its means down the highway. Regardless of its brevity, you may see how rapidly the automobile will get going and actually hear the hum of its electrified powertrain.
The brand new Countach has been one of the talked about supercars in current reminiscence since its unveiling at this 12 months’s Monterey Automotive Week. It’s simple to see why. Along with its dynamic styling, the automobile—which relies on the model’s first manufacturing hybrid, the 819-hp Sián—pairs a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V-12 engine that pumps out 769 hp with an electrical motor powered by Lamborghini’s 48-volt supercapacitor tech that provides a further 34 hp. The setup, which is mated to a seven-speed computerized transmission that sends energy to every wheel, generates 803 whole horses and might push the automobile from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and to a prime pace of 221 mph.
Regardless of this, there’s additionally been loads of controversy surrounding the $2.64 million automobile. There’s been some consternation about its overlap with the Sián, with some accusing the marque of buying and selling on the nameplate’s popularity to earn cash. Even the Countach’s unique designer, Marcello Gandini, has voiced his displeasure, telling Autoweek he didn’t “approve” of the venture.
Regardless, the video suggests manufacturing of the 112 new Countachs is ready to start ahead of later. And we have now a sense soon-to-be house owners of the hybrid received’t care one bit about all of the grumbling.
