Lamborghini Countach 2021 Limited Edition.
Lamborghini Countach 2021 Limited Edition on 21/22 Inch Custom Forged Wheels.
Lamborghini Countach 2021 Limited Edition - the Legend is back! What a design and what a car. The mother of all current supercars was revealed yesterday by Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelman 50 years after its first presentation. That was the good news. The bad news is that the $2.6 million cars were sold out within two hours. Not more than 112 cars were produced, and all 112 owners can now sit back and watch how the price will go through the roof for those who were not lucky enough to get one themselves.
LOMA has decided to make a MCS Limited Edition forged wheel made out of aerospace aluminum of 20 sets with a price tag of $77,980 per set. We did this already with the FX1 and FX1-C in carbon fiber for hypercars like the laFerrari, and all 25 rim sets were sold out within the first weeks.
The Lamborghini Countach History.
The original Lamborghini Countach unveiled as a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show in 1971 made the Italian automaker world famous. The new Countach, unveiled at an event during Monterey Car Week in California Friday, celebrates the 50th anniversary of that debut.
In many regards, the new Countach is a direct descendent of the original. It has a V12 engine, directly behind the two seats. And, like every Lamborghini sports car since the Countach, it's shaped like a low-profile wedge.

There's one huge difference, though. This new Countach is a hybrid. It's not a plugin hybrid. As the car drives, it stores power in a supercapacitor that can provide some additional power to the wheels during hard acceleration. At low speeds, it also includes the ability between gear shifts to help smooth the uncomfortable surging and bucking that can come from Lamborghini's aggressive racecar-style transmission.
Supercapacitors are more expensive than batteries, and they are not as good as batteries at storing energy for long periods. But they can store more energy per cubic centimeter than batteries, absorbing and releasing energy more quickly.
In all, the new four-wheel-drive Countach can produce up to 802 horsepower, with 769 coming from the gasoline engine and an additional 33 horsepower from the electric motor that is attached to the side of the gearbox. The supercapacitor hybrid system is similar to the Lamborghini Sián, another limited-edition model that Lamborghini unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2019. In the Countach, though, it has been slightly reprogrammed to give the car a distinct driving character, said Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini's chief technical officer. With the Countach, for instance, there was a greater emphasis on smooth power delivery.
Only 112 of the cars will be made. The number is a reference to Lamborghini's internal project name for the original Countach, LP-112. The first cars will be delivered to customers in the first quarter of 2022.
