Here's the Countach in a modern-look to homage its 50th anniversary

After waiting for so long but not showing up, it seems that the Lamborghini, an Italian premium auto marque will be launching the next Lamborghini Countach in a few months ahead. Before could be saw it, it's good to be if we see the digital concept car work of an independent design studio named the ARC Design inspired by the Marcello Gandini's original concept car which is being on celebrating its 50th anniversary today.

It is named the Lamborghini Countach 50 Omaggio, the concept car was designed digitally as a tribute to the concept car that debuted at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. It is the Countach in its purest form, when compared to the various production versions built between 1974 and 1990, and gradually deviated from the original simple lines by adding more pronounced aerodynamic components and thicker bumper

Here it seems that Arc Design wants to maintain a clean line, and the original surface while allowing it to turn into something more aggressive with the help of the active aerodynamic features. Thus, the hidden side air intakes behind the windows pop up only when needed, and the active rear wing is only deploys at a higher speeds. Even though we were not sure whether those active ducts alone are large enough for cooling the engine, but at least they look great.

Furthermore, they mentioned the Omaggio concept would be built on the Aventador's carbon fiber monocoque chassis with its V12 engine mid-mounted. In theory, the Countach 50 Omaggio is much greater than the source of inspiration, with significantly wider tracks and larger diameter wheels. Judging from the photorealistic renderings, the car looks wider, lower, and more planted indeed.

As quoted of Carscoops, nowdays the supercars have become more and more complicated, so seeing simple yet beautiful forms on a hypercar is a thing to behold. At the front, there is no need for additional pop-up units as the main headlights feature laser technology. The air intakes are beautifully integrated on the front bumper while the flat bonnet has a trapezoidal shape like many Lambo cars after the Countach. The only issue is that the front overhang seems to be a tad too long from certain angles and the huge wheels demand more aggressive angles on the front fenders.

The most striking view of the digital concept car is clearly visible on the back. The taillights featuring very thin LED mesh, and really functioned as the airways that allow hot air came from the naturally aspirated V12 engine to go out. While the engine cover is made of heat-proof glass with integrated brake lights that are dissapear when not in use, while the wide exhaust pipe is located in the diffuser. Overall, the tail concept is justice for authentic shoes and reminds us why we really like this car.

In the cabin, the relationship between the two Countach concepts are clearly visible, To differentiate the Omaggio from the outgoing flagship is the addition of a large-sized touch screen on the center console, mirror-replacing digital screens on the doors, and a new center tunnel with all the necessary buttons and switches.

The Countach 50 Omaggio concept car most likely never be produced, although the concept looks very cool for our eyes but wouldn't be able arouse interest in the Sant'Agata-based manufacturer to make it into a production car. Just reminded, this is an independent design study from ARC Design and is not related to or endorsed by Automobili Lamborghini SpA.
If Lamborghini later wants to launch a limited production of the Aventador-based Countach it will probably prefer use the work of its own designer team. Regarding the shape, it can be cooler, gorgeous, or perhaps with an unimaginable previously design or vice versa. Then what about the Countach's revival? Will the raging bull logoed auto manufacturer realize a new version of the Countach? We look forward to further news. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ARC DESIGN | CARSCOOPS | LAMBOCARS ]
