When Lamborghini released the Sian during last week's Geneva Motor Show, many aficioandos fell in love with the Countach-inspired styling tricks of the Hybrid Bull, such as the area defining the rear light clusters. But what if we were to go one a hundred steps further and end up with a modernized version of the 80s icon?
Of course, we can always turn to our imagination for such a machine, but I've brought along a bit of a stimulant. And I'm referring to a styling exercise (yes, it's a rendering) that sees artist The Sketch Monkey reworking such a Sant'Agata Bolognese machine.

The pixel wielder started with one of the late models, namely the Countach 5000S, which leaves the all-clean shape of the original behind in favor of more flamboyant aero elements.

Now, you can immerse yourself in the screenshots above, which briefly take one from the actual Lambo to the modern-day sketch. Then again, you might just want to see the magic unfolding in Photoshop, which is where the piece of footage at the bottom of the page comes into play.

I've said this before and I'll say it again: here's to hoping Lamborghini comes up with new models that stick to simple shapes, unlike many of the carmaker's recent super-specials, such as the Veneno and the Centenario.

And with both the Aventador and the Huracan set to receive replacement in the first half of the next decade, the stakes are high.

Now, while the said pixel wielder gave a new twist to the original Countach, there are also other ways of approaching such a transformation. For instance, here's one that seems to be the opposite of the visual adventure we have here. To be more precise, this sketch dreams of a machine that shows clear Countach inspiration without using the actual lines of the retro hero.
