Lamborghini Kicks Off Monterey Car Week with Countach LPI 800-4 Global Debut at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering
Sant’Agata Bolognese/Carmel-By-The-Sea, 13 August 2021 – In commemoration of the legendary Countach’s 50th anniversary and V12 heritage, Automobili Lamborghini today debuted globally the next generation Countach LPI 800-4, alongside the North American premieres of the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae and Essenza SCV12 at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering. The annual automotive event, held on the grounds of the Quail Lodge & Golf Club, returned for an 18th year and served as a prime location to commence the world-famous Monterey Car Week.
The Countach LPI 800-4, an emblem of the brand’s past and future, was unveiled to a crowd of 5,000 guests by Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. Only 112 units will be made, signifying the ‘LP 112’ nomenclature used during the original Lamborghini Countach’s development.
“The Countach LPI 800-4 showcases the next chapter of Lamborghini in an electrified world while celebrating one of our most iconic models,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. At The Quail, our customers will be the first see this new masterpiece in person alongside the final Aventador and Essenza SCV12 – each of which will hold its own place in automotive history.
Lamborghini also showcased an array of new models, including the Huracan STO (Super Trofeo Homologata) and includes the final iteration of the naturally aspirated V12 from the brand – Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae – and the track-only Essenza SCV12, both of which made their North American debut.
The Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae is a tribute to the acclaimed Lamborghini V12 and to all former Aventador models since its initial reveal in 2011.
