The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 arrives in Japan

Warehouse Terrada in Tokyo was the setting for the unveiling of the Countach LPI 800-4 in Japan on the occasion of the first deliveries to customers. To mark the link with this model’s past history, a 1989 Countach 25th Anniversary was on display alongside the LPI 800-4. The event was exclusive to 90 members of the local press, who had the opportunity to interview Francesco Scardaoni, Region Director for Asia Pacific, Davide Sfrecola, Head of Lamborghini Japan, and Mitjia Borkert, Head of Design at Automobili Lamborghini. The Countach LPI 800-4 was then brought to the streets of Tokyo and photographed in front of some of the capital city’s most famous districts and buildings.

The Countach LPI 800-4 is a futuristic limited-edition car produced in 112 units that pays tribute to the original Countach, a non-conformist icon of revolutionary design and technology that celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. The LPI 800-4 is a tribute to Lamborghini’s glorious heritage, but not in retrospect. Rather, it represents the idea of what could have been the evolution of the iconic Countach of the Seventies and Eighties into an exclusive and contemporary super sports car model.

Francesco Scardaoni, Regional Director for Automobili Lamborghini in Asia Pacific said: “We are excited to present the Countach LPI 800-4 along with the 1989 Countach 25th Anniversary to our media friends in Japan. The Countach has been one of the most popular Lamborghini models ever since it was first introduced to the world five decades ago. As we begin the first deliveries of the Countach LPI 800-4 to our discerning owners in Japan, we can expect that the Countach will continue to turn many heads when it is on the Japanese roads as it has been for the past fifty years.”

The Countach LPI 800-4 retains the inimitable experience and sound of the V12 rear mid-engine (LP – longitudinale posteriore), incorporating the hybrid technology (I) developed for the Sián. The LPI 800-4’s all-wheel-drive V12 delivers 780 hp, combined with the 34 hp of the electric motor, for a total of 814 hp (rounded down to 800 in the name) and it delivers outstanding performance, with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in 8.6 seconds, and a top speed of 355 km/h.
