Lamborghini Countach: Future Is Our Legacy Exhibit Announced
Automobili Lamborghini recently announced the “Lamborghini Countach: Future Is Our Legacy” exhibition at the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum in partnership with the Consulate General of Italy during the Art Basel Miami. Right in the middle of the Art Deco District in Miami Beach, the second-floor gallery of the Museum has been transformed so that guests can experience the marque’s holistic approach to sustainability as well as their design evolution through the iconic Lamborghini Countach.
At the heart of the gallery will be a 1986 Lamborghini Countach LP 5000 QV. Guests will go through the exhibition starting with a history of the Countach models. The vintage sketches can then be seen, then the path to sustainability. The imagery of the new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 will be the finale.
After the release of the Lamborghini Sian, the Countach LPI 800-4 is their next step towards hybridization. As part of the ambitious goals of Direzione Cor Tauri, they aim to lower their CO2 emissions by half by 2025 through a fully plug-in hybrid model lineup. A fully battery electric Lamborghini will be released in the second half of the decade.
Again, Lamborghini is stepping out of their comfort zone and challenging the status quo. On the 50th anniversary of the original LP 500, Lamborghini released the hybrid-powered Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4. It is another proof of the continuing impact of the first super sports car in the world. It is again another success for Lamborghini’s quest towards electrification. The LPI 800-4 was engineered for the modern era and it embodies Lamborghini’s innovations in hybrid technology as it worked with the car’s V12 heart.
Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephen Winkelmann shared, “Bringing the past to the present, this exhibition demonstrates how Lamborghini has consistently pushed beyond what is possible and still does so today with an ambitious plan for electrification,” states Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “With ground-breaking design and modern aesthetic being integral to Lamborghini’s DNA, Art Basel Miami is the perfect environment in which to illustrate this journey and we are privileged to exhibit within such a prestigious museum as The Wolfsonian-FIU.”
Consul General of Italy in Miami Cristiano Musilla stated, “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.”
The exhibit and the 1986 Lamborghini Countach LP 5000 QV will be on display until December 5, 2021.
