A Lamborghini Aventador “Countach Homage” Could Be A Thing

What better way to celebrate the Lamborghini Aventador’s long career than with a “Countach Homage” edition?


  • This would be the Aventador’s final special-edition before being replaced.

  • The “Countach Homage” could be released later this year.


Any and all true Lamborghini fans will tell you that the Countach, built between 1974 and 1990, is one of the most significant pre-supercars to have aver graced tracks, roads, and bedroom walls. Its significance is obviously not lost or underappreciated by Lamborghini as rumour has it they will pay tribute to it with a special edition of the Aventador.

The current flagship Lamborghini was launched just over a decade ago and has proven to be enormously successful for the Volkswagen Group-owned Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy-based supercar maker. Now, according to The Supercar Blog, a final send-off edition will “merge” the Countach and the Aventador.

The “Countach Homage” would be based on the Aventador thus being powered by the same 6.5-litre V12 engine. More than likely, output will be over that of the “base” donor car. Exactly how this will be achieved is yet unknown. A tune could increase output to about 785 horsepower and more grunt could come from a 48-volt mild-hybrid system as found in the ultra-exclusive Sian.

On the topic of exclusivity, no more than 100 units of the “Countach Homage” Aventador are likely to be built and sold. And they will cost at least €1 million, or close to $1.5 million US.
