The Return of the Legendary Lamborghini Countach

The Sant’Agata Bolognese company announces on social media the return of a name that has written the history of Italian motoring around the world, 50 years after the debut of the model presented at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show.

Fifty years after the presentation of the LP500 prototype in 1971 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Sant’Agata Bolognese company announces the return of the legendary Lamborghini Countach. Two teasers released online by the historic Italian brand reveal the return of the supercar born from the genius of Marcello Gandini and which became famous for its particular wedge shape.

The first video teaser with an eighties flavor, “Stranger Things” docet, shows a boy intent on sticking a poster of the original Countach on the wall of his bedroom, while a voiceover anticipates in a cryptic way the possible return of the legend. The second video allows you to glimpse the lines of the car, even if covered by a cloth. The classic wedge shape of the sports car par excellence stands out which could, however, conceal a surprise: the presence of a large wing, perhaps a due homage to the original Lamborghini Countach.

The technical characteristics of the new Lamborghini Countach are still unknown, but it is clear that the road map announced by Lamborghini at the beginning of the year is decisively directed at the company’s transition from purely internal combustion powered vehicles to an electrified range. For this reason, the name Countach, which was a choice of field in Lamborghini design, can now attribute the same strength to the evolution of engines. Finally, many suggest that the new Lamborghini Countach could be unveiled shortly, indeed, very shortly, on the occasion of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, scheduled for mid-August.
