Lamborghini Countach Withdrawn Because the Glass Engine Cover Can Be Removed

Deliveries of the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 in the United States started in August this year with the first two examples shown at Monterey Car Week 2022. At a private ceremony, which was attended by Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lamborghini, the keys to both supercars were presented to their new owner. However, they should immediately return the key to the automaker for a quick service check as there may be a problem with the engine cover glass.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a recall of a total of nine units of the Reborn Countach distributed worldwide. The agency’s bulletin said the cars were produced between June 30 and July 28 this year and the initial reports of potential problems came from the Qatar market in early October. A possible problem with one of the four glass panels on the rear hood of the supercar was discovered and Lamborghini started an internal investigation.

On October 25, the Sant’Agata Bolognese-headquartered marque announced that after internal analysis and testing, the defect was found to be an error in the supplier’s assembly stage regarding the bonding of the glass panels. No reports from other markets were received at the time, but it’s impossible to exclude that the other panels could detach completely from the rear hood. Finally, Lamborghini presented the results of the investigation to the Lamborghini Product Safety Committee on November 10, which decided to launch a proactive worldwide recall.

NHTSA said nine vehicles could be affected by the problem and Lamborghini will inspect each one for the appropriate glass panel bonding. If imperfections are found, the glass panels will be replaced according to the manufacturer’s specifications. All nine vehicles are still under warranty.

As a reminder, the reborn Countach LPI 800-4 is the fastest and fastest Countach the Italian manufacturer has ever built. With a V12 engine working behind the seat along with an electric motor, this supercar has 803 horsepower (599 kilowatts). The sprint to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) takes just 2.8 seconds.
