Pictures of the reincarnated Lamborghini Countach have leaked onto the internet ahead of the supercar’s imminent reveal, and although its design pays the necessary tribute to its forebear, it is perhaps more modern than retro.

The pictures, which show us the car from all exterior angles, were posted on Twitter by Alejandro Salomon.

Of course, Lamborghini has not released any of the technical details as yet, but previous speculation pointed to it being based on the Sian, and the exterior design similarities that we see seem to back that theory.

Earlier this week Autocar reported that the new Lamborghini Countach would likely have a similar powertrain to the Sián, and here we’re talking about a 578kW 6.5-litre V12 assisted by a 25kW supercapacitor.

The hybrid theory makes sense, given that Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann referred to the recently revealed Aventador LP 780 Ultimae as the company’s last purely-combustion-engined V12 production model.

As with the Sián, Autocar expects that the new Lamborghini Countach will be built in extremely limited numbers and that it won’t replace the Aventador, with the latter set to get a direct successor in 2023.

Lamborghini announced the Countach revival earlier this week, when it releasd a teaser image of the wedge-shaped car beneath a cover. “The classic Countach was the stuff of dreams. Now, 50 years later, the new Lamborghini Countach is coming. Stay tuned!” the Italian supercar maker announced on its Facebook page.
