    New Countach is coming.

    From the Lamborghini website: https://www.lamborghini.com/en-en/news/the-new-lamborghini-countach-is-coming


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Well the silhouette looks good. 


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Hmmm... Why recycle a name? They hadn't done that in the past.

     


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Yes they have, in 2006, with the Muira concept.

    If it's going to be a hybrid or an EV then tying it to a name that enthusiasts already love might sway some people to like it more, or hate it less. 

    Edit: Seems like it's a limited run Hybrid called the LPI-800-4 and here's a leaked detail shot.

    Let’s go forward, not backward…

    Makes some sense since this car will probably be the last produces using the drivetrain configuration ushered in by the original Countach 50 years ago.  That configuration, with the gearbox ahead of the engine and mounted midship in the passenger cabin limited the adoption of a wider double clutch transmission.  The replacement for the Aventador will, with high probability, have a shared component set with the Huracan replacement.  


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Latest rumors are H replacement will be V6TT+hybrid (not V8TT+hybrid). Winkelman has clearly stated A replacement will be NA V12+hybrid. Expect the hybrid system will be similar between the two but easy enough to “tweak” outputs for product stratification. H engine choice makes sense if you consider that the ICE component of the V12 will have to be above that of the H. I know Nick thinks it’s crazy but I would still love to see an over square 4L V12 with redline and specific outputs similar to that of liter class sport bikes. An limited torque but 800hp NA V12 with 12-13k redline paired to a 250-350hp hybrid drivetrain would be perfect.

    This Countach reboot is supposed to appear at Quail I think.


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    VAG's 'corporate' V12 for Lamborghini is 6.5L, making 760ish hp.

    VAG's official corporate hybrid motor that couple's with the transmission, that's also capable for AWD, is rated at 100kW, 134hp, is already widely used.

    Say there target is 800hp, it only needs V12 making 670hp or so. They could very well down size the 6.5L to 6L or even below. 

    Coupled with cylinder bank deactivation, VAG could get away with even a 5L V12 if they so wishes to get under consumption laws. 

    4L, might be pushing it. I mean it could be done, but with exotic materials. Would anyone be prepared to pay 600k for a car like that? Or even 700k?

    Not quite.  The Countach will use the powertrain from the Sián including the 34 bhp electric motor in the transmission housing and supercapacitors.  It is more a styling exercise versus a technology platform; however, there is always a market for this type of vehicle amongst a small group of collectors, and speculators.

    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Sorry if I’m muddying the waters. My speculative comments above are about the Aventador replacement.
     

    The Countach reboot will use the current V12 and the super capacitor as I understand it.

    Re: New Countach is coming.

    yesss very nice iteration


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    The rear looks very good.


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Asymmetric Countach badging on front is another excellent detail along with the updated wheel cutouts.  This is a stellar send off for the Aventador and the powertrain configuration ushered in by the Countach fifty years ago. 


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    I agree, superb and much better than the cartoonish limited editions of the past years.

    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Fantastic hommage. It's a pity this isn't the regular production V12 instead of the Aventador.


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    It does, however, point towards a direction that the Aventador replacement could take.  


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Now if they’ll just make the Miura concept that’s in the Sant Agata museum.


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Lamborghini Countach at 50 featured at the Pebble Beach Concurs d’Elegance with the official Lamborghini Press release. Too many images to post here and am very envious of the 112 owners of this car.  https://media.lamborghini.com/english/latest-news/all/lamborghini-countach-lpi-800-4.-a-design-and-technology-benchmark-for-modern-super-sports-cars--reim/s/c959d2ba-7d49-4adb-a7b4-d22b53515e56

    It would probably look stunning in black. 


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    I like it's new looks but anything under the bonnet is a rip-off to any customer.....


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Video from Pebble Beach. https://youtu.be/CrRjIbHNuws  All 112 units are spoke for, as expected.

    Re: New Countach is coming.

    Overall it's nice. But I see way too much Aventador in it, especially the side profile.

    The front could also be reworked, instead of recycling the slanted lines from the Aventador, they could have square them off a la original Countach. Just carbon fibre panels, not structural, so would have been easy to do.

    Re: New Countach is coming.

    I like the original Countach better.

    This looks like a cheap Chinese knock-off.

    Overly simplified version of the gorgeous lines that Contach has.


    Re: New Countach is coming.

    The more I look at it, the worse it is...and I saw the price angel and then mail
