Future Classic Lamborghini Countach to Fetch $2.5M USD at Auction


The 2022 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 represents a vehicle that could be identified as a future classic or as a classic brought into the future depending on how you look at it. Whether you love it or hate it, there is no denying that it’s a significant commemoration of nostalgia for the automaker.

Limited to just 112 examples, the LPI 800-4 is a truly rare car in every sense of the word and in the case of the specific example offered by RM Sotheby’s, things get even more rare. This particular 2022 Countach represents one of only five finished in Luci del Bosco as well as the singular example with that finish over a Bianco Leda interior.

As for its design ethos, this exceptional vehicle, a modern reinvention of Lamborghini‘s legendary supercar, combines nostalgic design elements with futuristic innovation, marking the 50th anniversary of the original Countach that set the automotive world ablaze in 1974. The Countach LPI 800-4 is not just a homage but a redefinition of the supercar concept, integrating advanced technology while retaining the iconic silhouette, hexagonal wheel openings and scissor doors that made the original a hallmark of automotive design.

This particular Countach was acquired new in Germany and has barely been driven, with just 110 kilometers or 69 miles on the odometer, ensuring it remains in pristine showroom condition. Its design is a sophisticated reinterpretation of the classic, featuring a carbon fiber body over an Aventador chassis, powered by a hybrid combination of Lamborghini’s formidable 6.5L V-12 engine and a supplementary electric motor. This synergy produces an impressive 802 hp, providing breathtaking performance as well as a smooth driving experience thanks to the innovative use of a supercapacitor.

The aesthetic choices of this Countach LPI 800-4 reflect a matured elegance, its Nero Ade accents and Bronze contrast stitching inside, coupled with matte bronze wheels and subtle use of carbon fiber outside, suggest a refined approach. These details highlight the vehicle’s unique status in the Lamborghini lineage, offering a stark yet sophisticated contrast to the brand’s typically vibrant palette.

This rare example of the 2022 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is set to go up for auction via RM Sotheby’s Monaco Sale on May 10 and is estimated to fetch as much as $2,500,000 USD.
