Photo gallery: Lamborghini Countach LP 500 Recreation in all its retro glory
These photos were taken just before it was delivered to its new owner
After 25,000 hours of work, this 1971 Lamborghini Countach LP 500 was reborn thanks to Lamborghini themselves.
Just before it went off to its new owner, Lamborghini took it to an event at Pirelli's racetrack in Vizzola Ticino, Italy. This was a chance to get some amazing photos of it before its official debut at Villa d’Este.
In order to bring this old Countach back to life, Lamborghini's Polo Storico division used a mix used components, genuine Countach spare parts, and newly fabricated pieces to create it. They even worked with Pirelli to get modern replicas of the original Cinturato CN12 tyres – something which would have taken a long time and a lot of money.
