Lamborghini revived the Countach name a year ago, giving rise to the iconic wedge shape of the modern era. The automaker has limited its production to 112 units, which means that the opportunities for a single drive do not exist. However, those who play Asphalt 9: Legends You’ll get a chance like the Countach LP1 800-4 hits the game today.

but that is not all. Gameloft, the game’s publisher, is also launching a competition dedicated to Countach. Featuring two elimination rounds, the first round begins today. Players will have the opportunity to determine the best time in the new single player mode. The qualifier season runs from today until August 7 and again from August 22 to 28.

The Countach LP1 800-4 joins other Lamborghini models in the game, such as the Terzo Millennio, Huracán EVO Spyder and Essenza SCV12.
When Lamborghini launched the revamped Countach, they made sure it came with a V12 engine. The 6.5-liter naturally aspirated engine also received an electric motor, bringing the car’s total output to 803 hp (599 kW). Using 48-volt supercapacitor technology, the electrified powertrain shoots the supercar up to 60 mph (96 kph) in 2.9 seconds and 124 mph (200 kph) in 8.6. It can reach speeds of 221 mph (355 km/h) as well.
Video games are a great way to experience rare and expensive super cars. The new Lamborghini Countach has found its way into its first video game, and we expect to see the iconic wedge shape in other titles in the future. The Countach name, retro-inspired design, and the powerful V12 that powers it are too cool for the game makers to let them sit in the track.
