The Countach's legendary stylistic elements influenced the design of the various models that have followed in its legacy.

The distinctively contemporary lines of the Lamborghini Countach, a legendary model celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021, shaped the design of all subsequent Lamborghinis, even the brand's current lineup, which includes the Aventador, Huracan, and Sian.

Hunkered down and wide, the front view of the Countach is characterised by diagonal lines on the hood, making it immediately recognisable from a distance. The shape of the passenger compartment, low and squared, combined with the slope of the windscreen, influenced the design of the various models that have followed the Countach. 

The Countach's distinctive shapes have remained unchanged over the years
These distinctive shapes have remained unchanged over the years, which along with the characteristic cut of the brand's signature side windows, make a Lamborghini easily identifiable at first glance.

The Countach introduced a futuristic style ahead of its time during the 1970s, a time of explosive creativity and one of the most significant eras for design. These were years of important achievements worldwide, which are reflected in significant changes that would inspire designers and creators around the world.

The Countach is the brainchild of the brand's eponymous founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini, who believed in the revolutionary project from the very beginning. It is only fitting that even in the present day, the Countach's design still influences the style of future Lamborghini models.
