Lamborghini Is Resurrecting One Of Its Most Iconic Names

Although Lamborghini put out a teaser video, details about the new Countach remain slim

Yes, you heard that right. Lamborghini is bringing back the Countach name, which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year.

The Italian automaker shared a clip on Facebook about the upcoming car.

The video didn't reveal much, except for the silhouette of the car.

Though the car was under wraps, you can almost immediately tell that it is reminiscent of the original.

Following the classic wedge-shape design without a rear wing.

The design of this Italian icon was penned by Marcello Gandini while he was at Bertone. The man has, over the years, designed several Lambo's like the Miura and the Diablo.

His work saw the day of light at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show and the car truly did take the world by storm. It was unlike anything people had ever seen before.

With its scissor doors, the Countach looked like it belonged to another planet. The design was way ahead of its time.

In fact, the design was so timeless that it remained in the Italian automaker's portfolio for nearly two decades.

Over time, the car received several cosmetic upgrades.

A lot more body work and a new wing were added to ride the retro-wave of the 80s.

Every Countach has been powered by Lamborghini's naturally aspirated V-12 engine.

The Lamborghini Aventador 780 Ultimae that came out last month, marks the end of this glorious chapter of using naturally aspirated V-12s for the Italian automaker.

If Lamborghini is reviving a name as iconic as the Countach, it certainly ought to be important.

The car should most likely give us the direction that the Italian automaker intends to take as far as hybrid powertrains go.

With that, it looks like the new Countach is all set to become yet another bedroom poster for a whole new generation.

The car is set to debut at the Monterey Car Week in a few days. Swipe up to read more.
