These Renderings Show Us What The New Lamborghini Countach Could Have Looked Like

The new Lamborghini Countach is an Aventador with the original Countach vibes, but it missed out on a few very important elements and cues

LISTEN 03:17

Lamborghini revealed the new Countach earlier this month and it was the talk of the town for a long time. The automaker revived the moniker on its 50th anniversary and based it on the Aventador. While the new Countach came with a lot of elements from the yesteryear model, it wasn’t as old school as a lot of people expected it to be. For a modern car with retro vibes, it did well. But, for a moniker as beloved as the Countach, the car missed out on a lot of stuff.

Since the looks drew polarizing opinions, some rendering artists took it upon themselves to show us what the Countach could’ve looked like if it was a lot more retro and old-school. One of them is Siim Pärn who shared his renderings with us.

Some Important Elements That The New Countach Missed

There are some design cues that Lamborghini has incorporated into this reskinned Aventador, like the flat nose, the headlights with a depression, the wedge shape, the scissor doors, and the NACA air ducts. It isn’t just from the original LP400 alone since the cues are borrowed from the LP400 S and the LP 5000 S QV as well.

However, there were a lot of things synonymous with the original model that weren’t incorporated here. I’m sure Lamborghini has its reasoning for it, but stuff like the big wing at the rear, the massive fender flares, and the pop-up headlights missed out. Siim’s renderings have the rear wing and the flared fenders, but not the pop-up headlights. But, these two things themselves have made such a huge difference to the appearance.
