I heard from my dealer that Lambo will be showing a limited edition (around a 100) car which will be a modern version of the Countach. It'll be based on the Aventador but look like a modern Countach. The car is to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the Countach. Price will be similar to the Sian, not sure when they'll be showing the car. My guess is Quail which is still on but we shall see.

I have NOT seen any credible sources that suggest this build.
you would think, the recreation of the most iconic car ever built would get some press.
You would think that other Lamborghini forums would be reporting this........and NADA
Why are so worked about this? It's not like you can afford it anyways.

VVIP's knew about the Sian because they attended the NYC preview event but the general public didn't know about the Sian until it showed up at Frankfurt so just wait until more information leaks online or go ask your dealer.

He's not getting worked up, just stating a fact that he can't find anything on it. Even some of the most secretive cars get leaked eventually (see the McLaren Sabre. The design images were online for months in forums before it became official).

And being able to afford it or not, has nothing to do with asking a question. It's more about being passionate about the brand and this particular limited edition model. I grew up with Countach posters on my walk in the early 80s and was thrilled when Kyosho and Auto Art produced really good 1:18 scale diecasts for us fans. So news of a factory "restomod-style" Countach that can be bought new has a lot of people excited!

I think it's all of us who just want to see what this will actually look like. The suspense is what is killing us and I'm eager to see how a Countach bodied Aventador will look. Can't wait to see it break cover. 👍
Not everything is leaked and plastered on the internet. This car is very special and my dealer told me about it last summer. Dealers reached out to their top tier clients last summer, there was no renders, no information, just that it was going to be a very special limited production car launched for the Countach anniversary and if you wanted one you had to put a sizable deposit.

There's other information about this car which I can't share but like I posted in my original post the car will look like a modern Countach and will only share the Aventador chassis, that's it.

Confirmed...

Lamborghini will reveal two new models powered by its V12 engine this year, as it aims to continue its growth after recording its second-best year of annual sales in 2020.

While no official details of the two V12 products have been released, new Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann told Autocar that one of the machines would feature the electrified supercapacitor system featured on the Sian FKP 37 hypercar. Autocar understands that model is likely to be another limited-run special.

(y) @ Fat Viking.

I've heard they'll be a final edition Aventador based on the SVJ but there's no other details.

My guess is they might launch both cars at Quail because as of today Quail is still a go and looks like travel restrictions into the US will be lifting in the coming months. It'll be the last horray for the Aventador platform before the replacement is announced.

The replacement is the biggest ? right now. I've asked my dealer, no clue. I asked my contacts at the factory, no comment. The various news articles floating around on the net indicate a 2022 launch but it seems like 2023 is more realistic seeing how the two limited edition V12's will keep the V12 line running next year.

It's beyond me how VW botched the A replacement. You would think the V12 flagship would be somewhat a priority to keep up with the rivals but nope. So far Lambo has been able to milk the Aventador platform but dealers are getting restless, they need a new flagship V12 model to make money.

Actually I’d like to throw this out there... instead of a continued Series of Aventador they do an STO of it like the Huracán STO alongside the Countach. Which is more likely this or the quoted passage?
You might be right because I have heard that the final Aventador will be the lightest Aventador produced so this is inline with a STO version of the Aventador.

To be honest both possible variants (SVR model above SVJ and Aventador STO) sound equally as exciting. I do hope that car will be somewhat available to us mortals that aren't able to spend $3M+ on it haha. Another important question would be if these two new V12 products will be fitted with a GPF or not. Any guesses?

As it sounds like the Av replacement is set to be released late next year or 2023 at latest. Winkelmann mentioned in the interview that this year will be "a moment of stabilisation" before Lamborghini "pushes things to the next level" in 2022 so my guess is that means Urus facelift/hybrid + Aventador hybrid replacement next year.
I don't think the "new" models will get GPF because the production numbers will be very low. That said, EVOs and I assume SVJ's shipped to China have GPF.

And next level is code word for "we need some time to catch to meet new emission regulations". The days of the NA engine is nearing the end and it seems like Lamborghini is the last holdout before they're literally forced to switch to hybridization.

The other issue for Lamborghini is China is becoming a huge market for them, they reckon it'll be the second largest market after the US. The issue with China is not only are they aiming get rid of most gas powered engines by 2030 but before they can reach that goal they're increasing the tax on high displacement engines. So if Lambo wants to be competitive and increase sales in China they need to go hybrid.

Sounds like we'll have another Reventon which basically previewed the Aventador. Not sure if there's a market for a $1m+ Aventador with the replacement around the corner.

It'll be interesting to see what they come up with.

Lol, they're reporting what's been posted in this thread and the fool that runs thesupercarblog.com steals stories from forums but doesn't credit the original poster or this site. He doesn't have insider information, just reposting forum postings on his crappy blog.

They'll preview the SJ in the coming weeks and my guess is they'll wait to show the Countach tribute car later in the year. And yes potential customers for the Countach tribute car have seen renders but signed a NDA so they can't talk about it.

It'll "most likely" be shown at the 50th bday celebration for the Countach at Pebble Beach. Maybe the public will get a teaser prior to the official unveiling. Potential customers were shown the render by dealers, my dealer showed me the render couple months ago. The ones that have seen the render are under NDA.
