A contemporary recreation of the Countach
By Mark Smeyers on December 9. 2018 in LamboNEWS.
When well-known TopGear journal had the intense concept to think about the legendary Lamborghini Countach as a 21st century recreation, they turned to Envisage the place a crew of three designers, Mike Mills, Aadil Hafiz, and Jong Bean Kim began to work on a contemporary interpretation of a automobile that hasn’t been constructed for practically 30 years now.
With little to go on aside from some photographs of the Countach LP500 S, they every labored on their very own design earlier than combining all of them into one closing proposal, a design that clearly reveals the unique Countach design, however might be constructed on an Aventador chassis right this moment.
Full with these well-known Lamborghini doorways and that rear wing all of us liked because the Eighties, they even managed to create a brand new wheel that appears completely superb and is straight away recognizable as that 5 holes, phone dial wheel we love on the Countach.
The rear could be very, very clean and comes with a set of LED taillights … and the compulsory set of 4 exhaust ideas, so this new Countach nonetheless might include the V12 engine, however I assume there will probably be some support from electrical engines too making it a hybrid, as a result of let’s face it, that is the best way to go for the Aventador successor too.
Up entrance, we acknowledge the Countach fashion, however now with skinny LED strips as headlights, there are pods on the entrance fender that appear like pop-up headlights, however I extremely doubt a 2019 or 2020 mannequin from Sant’Agata would include something aside from mounted LED headlights.
On the facet we discover these irregular designed wheel arches and naturally a contemporary interpretation of the well-known NACA ducts on the facet, add a number of Aventador S and Centenario fashion vents on the wheel arches, and we actually might see this as a contemporary Countach evolution.
However this can stay a design examine, I am positive the automobile Lamborghini has been designing to turn out to be the Aventador successor won’t appear like this, however extra doubtless a mixture of Veneno, Centenario, and Terzo Millennio … maybe with a touch of Countach and Miura added to the combo, that might actually be an incredible tribute to these heritage automobiles …
