Waiting for the upcoming Countach....

The Countach is back alive! Finally the Automobili Lamborghini SpA. officially revived its legendary Lamborhini Countach supercar, as we can see previously on the Italian manufacturer's official  page on Facebook, there's a 20-second video titled 'The Icon is Coming Back' is showed initially an image of the Countach's classic supercar in a poster which then slid rapidly, and of the distance then a new car figure appeared.
Lamborghini's legendary Countach name has been revived after 31 years for the Countach LPI 800-4, which pays homage to the original early-1970s design. (Picture from: Carscoops)
That's the "next Lamborghini Countach," named the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 (where the LPI is Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido or Longitudinal Posterior Hybrid). Until now, the informations regarding the latest Countach supercar is not much and officially the Sant'Agata Bolognese based manufacturer only provides a photo on its official website.
Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4's color is similar to the one Ferruccio Lamborghini specified for his own Countach LP400 S, paired with a similarly period-appropriate red and black interior. (Picture from: Autoblog)
As we could be seen from the photo, the latest low posture Countach still covered by gray fabric and there's no hint of the madness of the Italian raging bull's designs, only clearly seen, it inspired by the original Countach by the smooth curves without any indication of a tall spoiler.

One thing is for sure that the 2021 beside to commemorate the Countach's 50th anniversary may be the right year if the raging-bull logoed manufacturer wants to bring back the legendary supercar into the world's modern supercar lines and also indicates that the latest Countach supercar will be part of Lamborghini's future. Unlike the previous model such the Lamborghini Miura Concept was revived by the Italian manufacturer in 2006 in comemmoraton the 40th anniversary of the first Lamborghini Miura concept debuted in 1966.

Unfortunately, the fate of the modern Miura did not meet a happy ending, because the vintage-themed prototype is ended at the museum as a show car without any realization into the producton version.

Meanwhile reportedly the new Countach supercar has debuted at the Monterey Car Week 2021, at Peeble Beach, United States on August, 2021. There're many classic elements on the latest Lambo Countach supercar figure, it could be seen in the front, which also maintained the sloping and flat bonnet.

Then Lamborghini incorporates contemporary elements on the back, as in the new Lamborghini cars. This can be seen of the latest Lamborghini Countach design at rear is enlarged sharply. Likewise, the design of the taillights, diffuser and quad exhaust makes the new Lamborghini Countach even more attractive.
The combination of old and new elements will certainly keep fans of the classic Countach loyal and will not turn away. Likewise, new Lamborghini fans are satisfied because the new Lambo supercar still has a thick modern feel.
Meanwhile for the drivetrain was different from its predecessor is used a naturally aspirated internal combustion engine power, the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is a hybrid sports car. Its drivetrain is the combination of a 6.5 liter cylinder V12 engine coupled with the electric motor will emerge power of 800 PS (789 hp) and channeled to its four wheels through the automatic transmission system.
