After months of rumors and leaks, Lamborghini has finally revealed its new hybrid-engine Countach. Fortunately, the model number tells you almost everything you need to know about the car: LPI 800-4.

The first part of the name is an abbreviation for Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido, which refers to how the powertrain is mounted lengthwise toward the back of the supercar and that it is a hybrid.

Meanwhile, the two numbers refer to the Countach’s V12 6.5-liter engine and 48-volt electric motor’s combined output of approximately 802 horsepower, as well as the fact that it has four-wheel drive.

All of this adds up to one powerful vehicle. The Countach can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds and from 0 to 124 miles per hour in just under nine seconds. It can reach a top speed of 221 miles per hour and has a maximum torque of 531 lb-ft.

Carbon fiber makes up most of the chassis and exterior of the Countach LPI 800-4.

“It imagines how the iconic Countach of the 70s and 80s might have evolved into an elite super sports model of this decade,” Lamborghini says of the design, which is more reminiscent of the Aventador than its original namesake.

Speaking of a select group, Lamborghini will only produce 112 units of the Countach LPI 800-4. The automaker’s press release makes no mention of a price tag. Lamborghini appears to be looking ahead, but the Countach was too important to ignore with a limited run.
