2021 Lamborghini Huracán STO

Lamborghini Countach LP500 prototype recreation
Another Lamborghini was in the headlines this week, specifically the Countach prototype first shown to the world during the 1971 Geneva International Motor Show.

Now, Lamborghini has recreated the original Countach prototype from scratch, using documents from the company’s archives.
