The new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is an homage to the ultimate bedroom poster car. The original Countach defined “super” for a generation of car enthusiasts as they gazed up at its remarkable and futuristic lines. So what better way to celebrate this new model than with a series of five new posters.
Lamborghini turned to five digital artists from around the world to interpret the Countach’s aggressive lines and Lamborghini’s retro-modern take on the car that reimagined what was possible for the small Italian brand.
For his poster, Omar Aqil, a 3D illustrator and CGI artist from Pakistan, has placed the Countach in the middle of a tower of unfolding technology. The clean, white lines speak to a deliberate and optimistic vision of the future that the Countach foresaw.
Yegor Zhuldybin is a Russian creator who specializes in surrealist collages. In his poster, he examines how the Countach fits into today’s world, balancing the modern aspects of the car and its iconic history.
Andreas Wannerstedt from Sweden is known for his hypnotic, looping animations, and here stages an interaction between nature and humanity’s most advanced technology. Cast against the delicate shades of an imaginary sunset, the Countach LPI 800-4 looks almost soft and gentle.
Artist LRNZ (aka Lorenzo Ceccotti) is an Italian graphic designer, animator, and illustrator, who highlights the extraordinary graphic qualities of the new Countach focusing on minimalism.
Finally, Shy.Studio, an independent motion graphics studio that specializes in 3D animations and still life was inspired by vintage posters and reproduced the Countach design on a modern setting with abstract elements that seem to emanate from another world.
All of the posters are available at Lamborghini’s online store in case your bedroom’s walls have started looking bare all of a sudden.
