Lamborghini Countach/Centenario Mashup Would Be The Best Frankencar Project Ever

While a combination of a Countach and a Centenario sounds intriguing, we’re pretty sure many Lamborghini purists would have a problem with it.

The Countach is probably the Italian automaker’s most iconic model to date, simply because of its wow factor. Add to it the fact that it came out in the early ’70s, when it must have looked like a spaceship, and you’ll undoubtedly realize just how special of a design this was. It was the quintessential bedroom poster car bar none – with the possible exception of the Ferrari F40.

Meanwhile, the Centenario is quite different. Unlike the Countach, it is a limited edition based on the Aventador. So while Lamborghini produced over 2,000 Countachs, there are only 40 Centenarios in the entire world.

Visually, what YasidDesign did here was add some Centenario traits to the Countach’s exterior, and the end result is something that would look at home in last year’s ‘Ghost in the Shell’ movie. In a way, it’s the best of both worlds. You keep the original design while adding modern features such as carbon fiber and LED taillights, although messing with the original design even a little bit will always raise more than a few eyebrows.

As for what engine we’d rather have on this FrankenLambo, as they both feature naturally aspirated V12s, we would go for the 770 PS and 690 Nm (507 lb-ft) unit of the Centenario. Yes, it’s just a rendering, but with factories bringing out ‘continuation’ units of their icons and small outfits embarking on all kinds of different projects, one can certainly dream.

Even so, anyone brave enough to delve into such an endeavor would first have to receive clearance from Lamborghini to avoid a Ferrari/Stratos situation – not that we expect it to happen anyway…

      They really do need to start road testing this cars replacement NOW!

        Why? The Aventador S has only recently been released, and no doubt this will give the model a few more years before a new model replaces it. Just because you haven’t seen photos of it yet, doesn’t mean there are already a few mules running around under the current bodywork.
