After we saw the new Lamborghini Countach LP 500 in Concorso dEleganza Villa dEste, we now get the chance to the unique concept at work.
The Lamborghini Countach LP 500 reconstructed by the company’s Polo Storico division was the headliner on 9 October at the “Countach LP 500: The Shakedown” event at the Vizzola Ticino racetrack, in the presence of the collector who commissioned the reconstruction and the suppliers who participated in its creation.
As part of the collaboration with Automobili Lamborghini, Pirelli made available its Vizzola Ticino circuit where Polo Storico, after the 25,000 hours of work required for the reconstruction, had the opportunity to test the LP 500 before its official presentation at Villa d’Este: similar to the testing done on the road to validate restoration work on Lamborghini classic cars before they are returned to their owners. The track location was also chosen to officially present the car to the collector, allowing him to experience the emotion of a few laps around the circuit.
The LP 500 is on display through November 15 to be admired in person at the MUDETEC Museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The bare tubular chassis of an LP 400, the second production LP 400, and a 5000 Quattrovalvole presented alongside the first Countach prototype, create a visitor journey to discover the fifty years of history attached to this legendary Lamborghini model.
