    Lamborghini defies the status quo in a way that is as unstoppable as the cars that bear its name. The hybrid-powered Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4, which will be launched on the 50th anniversary of the original LP 500 this year, is a testimony to the world’s first super sports car’s continuing impact, as well as another step forward in the brand’s electrification journey. Engineered for a new era, the LPI 800-4 showcases Lamborghini’s latest innovations, including hybrid technology that works in tandem with the V12 engine.

    “It is indeed a pleasure to renew the partnership between the Consulate General of Italy in Miami and Lamborghini, showcasing the iconic vintage Countach. Lamborghini has longstanding experience in manufacturing timeless cars in the heart of Italy’s Motor Valley. Its motoring legends encompass both tradition and innovation with distinctive design. Alongside its core business, the company has committed to an all-round environmental policy that includes CO2 emission reduction and an intensive recycling of waste materials. Through the display of Italian design objects, this exhibition presents innovative eco-friendly industrial design, created through conservation of energy and recycling of used materials,” Consul General of Italy in Miami Cristiano Musillo stated.
