This Is What the New Countach Could Have Looked Like

There’s a new Lamborghini Countach out, but it’s not exactly new. The LPI 800-4 is based on the Aventador’s 10-year-old platform, upgraded with some fancy bits from the 2021 Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, namely that hypercar’s advanced supercapacitor hybrid tech. This wouldn’t have been a problem if the company had called it “Benito” or “Flavio,” but it didn’t. It went with Countach—the most well-known, most popular, and most jaw-dropping car in Lamborghini’s near 60-year history—and the internet seems to have a problem with that.

The internet is nearly impossible to please, but some of the new Countach’s critics might have a point this time. Luckily, the internet is also home to some very talented rendering artists. Cue Siim Designs, the same designer from Estonia who (as far as we’re concerned) greatly improved the mug of the new BMW 4 Series. Now he’s back with a reworked Countach, making it look more like the iconic supercar we all remember.

The big, triangular wing is present and correct, perhaps as a potential optional extra for this theoretical Lambo’s mega-rich clientele. The big fender flares, pinched rear end, and square taillights are equally respectful to the original. It even has the phone-dial type wheels. Siim’s renders look like an amalgamation of the Countach’s greatest hits, and it might put some of the new car’s critics to bed.

We’ll leave it to the internet about whether bringing the Countach name back in the first place was a smart move for Sant’Agata. But, since it has, check out these renders and decide for yourself which one is a more fitting tribute.
