Liberty Walk debuts a custom Lamborghini Countach, and it looks like it eats Ferraris for breakfast
That’s what Liberty Walk does. He criticizes the controversial large widebody kit on the car and makes it vulgar. It doesn’t even matter that the car is an automotive icon. This time, this poor Lamborghini Countach is unrecognizable.

Liberty Walk uploaded a 40-second video to YouTube on Christmas Day previewing their upcoming project: a modified-logo Lamborghini Countach. It is most likely the 25th anniversary of the Countach, considering the body-colored vertical stripes in the air intakes in the upper sector of the tail. The special edition was significantly redesigned by Horacio Pagani, the Argentine-Italian businessman who founded Pagani Automobili.
The model that looks like this will be shown for the first time at the Tokyo Auto Salon. The short film shows part of the wide-body kit that the Countach will wear once it’s ready.
The Lambo will come with a bold white exterior design, with radical-looking components. A prominent front splitter is accompanied by a lower fascia with a rectangular grille over three gaps that help the engine breathe. The LW chose a weird style for this section, making it boxy and angular.
At the opposite end, the Japanese fitted a larger wing than the one originally used by the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory for the Countach. There are also flush-mounted taillights instead of the ones the car had from the factory in the 1980s. The rear diffuser and quad exhaust below rounds off the look there and highlights the car’s motorsport-infused nature.

In pure Liberty Walk style, the tuning team installed flared wheel arches atop dipped-dish Rohana Forged wheels with black Y-spoke calipers, red sport brake calipers and Toyo tires, adding to the car’s width. Vents behind the front wheels and in front of the rear wheels help airflow and reduce drag. The teaser video shows that the wide-body kit has been developed in a wind tunnel.
The car seen in the video wears a California license plate. So we can assume that it belongs to a customer from the United States.
One thing’s for sure: The Lamborghini Countach will be as controversial as Liberty Walk’s Ferrari F40 last year. Supercar enthusiasts around the world criticized the tuning house for cutting and modifying such an icon. Perhaps they should expect the same reactions in 2024, once the wide-body Countach is unveiled.
As usual, light weight does not interfere with the powertrain of cars in the hands of the tuning house’s experts. Therefore, the Lamborghini Countach was still powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 from the LP5000 Quattrovalvole with fuel injection, which was capable of delivering 414 hp (420 hp) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque.
The polarizingly designed Lamborghini Countach will be unveiled on January 12, 2024, at the Liberty Walk booth, at the Tokyo Auto Salon.
