There aren’t many more iconic or straight recognisable autos than the Lamborghini Countach. This was peak 1970s and ‘80s supercar, with air vents the dimensions of mini fridges and, on later objects, a rear roam so gargantuan that a total household could perhaps shelter beneath it.
The spoiler is arguably one among the becoming-cherished styling facets of the 80s Countach, nonetheless you’ll doubtlessly know that it basically hindered efficiency moderately than helping it. So it’s been binned for the Countach reimagination that Lamborghini has shining teased, on this silhouetted image at the very least.
We manufacture needs advance true. We did it with the fundamental Countach in the 1970s. And we’re doing it again. The new Lamborghini Countach is coming. #Lamborghini #Countach pic.twitter.com/nXctgIuyqe

The teaser doesn’t expose us great, shining that the new automobile can comprise a similarly wedgy shape to the distinctive Countach, and that it’ll comprise an overhanging rear discontinuance. But it’s obvious that the conventional-day Countach will be more aerodynamic.
Another teaser has been leaked on Instagram. Reportedly from the uncommon Lamborghini Unica app, the teaser reveals a space of air vents and the automobile’s gas filler cap. Mixed with the inability of rear spoiler, it appears this new Countach will be impressed by earlier versions of the Miura successor.
The automobile’s name appears to be the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4, with 800 being the energy (akin to 789bhp) and the ‘4’ designating four-wheel pressure. ‘LPI’ was beforehand feeble on the Asterion thought, and stands for ‘Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido’’, that methodology that the automobile can comprise a mid-mounted engine with hybridisation.
It’s now not obvious how great electrification we’re talking about. The light-hybrid V12 from the Lamborghini Sian appears doubtless, nonetheless it could perhaps perhaps perhaps perhaps comprise more electrification than shining a token starter-generator – it could perhaps perhaps perhaps perhaps, perhaps, be a full hybrid or perhaps a dawdle-in hybrid.
Judging by Lamborghini’s teaser, the mannequin is willing to be unveiled. Monterey Automobile Week is taking set for the time being, with The Quail going on on 13 August and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on 15 August. We’d count on to glimpse it showcased at some level of one among those events, especially as there’ll be an anniversary event for the distinctive Countach.
We’ll raise more knowledge when we accept it. But for now, are you pondering a brand new Lamborghini Countach?
