We could never buy the first one, we’ll probably not be able to buy this one either. Nonetheless, we finally have a reason to update the age-old poster on our bedroom wall
With emission norms becoming stricter and crash test rules hindering car design, there are few things that can really arouse automobile enthusiasts today. But just one mention of the Countach coming back, and the Lambo fanboys can't wait for more.
The supercar manufacturer from Sant'Agata Bolognese sent the world into a frenzy after it revealed that the iconic Countach was making a comeback.
To bring you up to speed, the Lamborghini Countach was a supercar produced between 1974 and 1990. Over its lifetime, the Countach went through a host of changes. It had a V12 engine all throughout, but its size grew from 3.9 litres to 4.8 litres. The final 25th Anniversary Edition featured a 5.2-litre V12 engine. The 4.8-litre Countach at one point held the record for being the fastest production car in the world, topping out at 293kmph.
However, more than its performance, the Countach is known for being the ultimate bedroom wall poster. In the 70s, when it was first launched, its design simply shattered all notions of automotive beauty. The straight lines all over the body, scissor doors, pop-up headlights, offset alloys with five holes ( known as Countach rims today), and the overall wedge-shaped design were so far ahead of the times that it became timeless.
Maybe now you will have a clearer idea as to why the ‘Countach’ nameplate is so evocative. As far as the new car goes, Lamborghini has kept the details close to their chests. The only thing they have told us, though, is that we should get ready for an update in the bedroom poster department.
If we were to guess, the new Countach will be some sort of a hybrid with a V12. That’s because Lamborghini has previously confirmed that all its cars, after the Aventador, will feature some degree of electrification.
