The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 made its European debut at Milano Design Week.
The exhibition space is 825 square meters with a Countach LPI 800-4, an original Countach LP400 and an Aventador Ultimae, each hidden by curtains. When the participants arrive in the space, lighting is used to “evoke the character and iconic silhouettes of the cars”, before they are fully revealed.

Throughout the exhibit, which took place at certain times between September 4 and September 10, Lamborghini designers illustrated the brand’s design DNS using sketches and tape drawings. Visitors also discovered the Scribit, a writing and erasing robot that can stick to any vertical surface and transform it into an interactive canvas. Lamborghini will use the little robot to sketch the design evolution of the Countach in real time.
A 1: 6 scale model of the Lamborghini 63 yacht is also featured in the exhibition, as is a special table lamp developed by iGuzzini and Centro Stile Lamborghini.
Lamborghini unveiled the Aventador-based Countach LPI 800-4 during Monterey Car Week last month. It’s radically different from the car it’s based on, while still showcasing some of the most iconic design cues from the original Countach. For example, it sports trapezoidal headlights, a flat nose and rectangular air intakes. Other Countach-inspired parts include the hexagonal wheel arches and slits behind the side windows. The Countach LIP 800-4 also has NACA style side air intakes.
Under the body of the car is the same powertrain as the Sian FKP 37. This means that the car is equipped with a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated 769 hp V12, paired with a 48-volt electric motor with 34 additional hp.
