The Countach LPI 800-4 was introduced by Lamborghini in August of last year, and it was painted white, one of the most iconic colours for the original car. While majority of the 112 customers will want their car to be in launch condition, with a price tag of $2.6 million, there will inevitably be a few who desire something a little more unusual.
This Countach LPI 800-4 with a scary dark paint scheme was observed by YouTuber Varryx. The automobile is finished in black and features gunmetal wheels with gold brake callipers. Overall, it’s a unique and pretty elegant spec, however it’s worth noting that it’s not the only one we’ve seen that differs from the launch.
Varryx has seen a white one with dark bronze wheels and black brake callipers, a silver one with diamond cut wheels and red brake callipers, and a white one with black wheels and gold brake callipers, in addition to the many launch standard vehicles he has seen testing. There’s also a grey and white test car with the Sian’s bright bronze multispoke wheels, which isn’t likely to be typical of any production Countach but gives us a clearer sense of potential colour combinations.
That test car was the same one we talked about earlier this month, when we got to hear the V12 hybrid powerplant for the first time. The Sian’s powertrain combines a normally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine with a 48-volt mild hybrid system for a total output of 803 horsepower (814 PS / 599 kW) and 557 lb-ft (755 Nm). After the pure, non-electrified V12 is phased out with the Aventador, this technology, or something similar, is expected to foretell the future of Lamborghini powertrains.
