One of Lamborghini’s most iconic supercar of all time is undoubtedly the Countach from the 70s up until 1990. It’s the first bedroom poster and dream car for a good number of kids growing up. And to this day, it is still true for some. If you suddenly miss your childhood dream car, well, here’s some good news. It’s making a comeback.
No, this isn’t a joke. The photo you're seeing is straight from Lamborghini themselves, and they are serious.
The Italian supercar builder recently shared on social media a 20-second video montage of classic Countach posters. What caught our attention, however, was the clip at the end. It showed a wedge-shaped vehicle combined with a message saying: “A new Lamborghini Countach is coming.”
Aside from the video and the teaser photo, there’s not a lot of details about the new Countach yet. Lamborghini did put up a dedicated page on their website, meaning they are serious about the vehicle. If we take a closer look at the teaser photo, we can see the car’s wedge shape clear as day. Noticeably, it also lacks the signature rear wing of the later 80s models.
The question now is this: Will the new Countach be a reskinned Aventador, or is it a full-on new model? There’s also the issue of the engine. Lamborghini said the current Aventador Ultimae will be the last naturally aspirated V12 supercar. However, they also said the V12 engine will live on; but it will be assisted by hybrid technology. With that, it could be electric-assisted like the Sian.
While there are still a lot of questions and possibilities about the new Countach. But one thing is certain, fans of the model will be happy to hear about its return. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long to see the new supercar in full.
