Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary – Click above for high-res image gallery

In two years' time, Lamborghini will be marking the half-century milestone, and the impending anniversary has everyone asking how the Italian automaker will choose to celebrate its landmark anniversary.

If we look back at how the company marked previous anniversaries, we find examples like the 25th Anniversary Countach (pictured above), the Diablo SE30 and the 40th Anniversary Edition Murciélago. In other words, while arch-rival Ferrari celebrates anniversaries with purpose-built supercars like the F40 and F50, Lamborghini has typically done so with special editions of the cars they already produce.

Will the next example follow the same path? Or is the 50th birthday one too important to leave to a trim and tape package? Some are suggesting that the limited-production version of the Sesto Elemento concept will arrive in time for the festivities, but we'll just have to sit tight to find out for sure.

      They should modernize the Countach and just call it Countach 50th Anniversary. I'm not a big fan of retro styling but I think this is one car that perhaps deserves to be brought back to life.

      Can't you just let us forget about the 25th Anniversary Countach? What an abomination of an otherwise awesome car.

        I have to agree the original Countach is fantastic especially in lime green or orange. The later limited editions lost the purity of the original but it was a sign of the times, it was competing against the 80's Testarossa. I wouldn't mind seeing something new rather than a limited edition.

      Hopefully nothing as ugly as the 25th anniversary.

      The reventon sure worked for them, and they are going to sell a few of those sesto things for tons of cash too. I would think they would do something kind of like that again but with their new LP-700.

        Audi and Lamborghini made an agreement in the beginning. It says that Audi parts in a Lambo are limited up to 30% and that´s mainly electronic stuff.
        So the Lambos of today (since the Murcielago) are still Lambos but reliable.
        The old lambos, like ferraris were in pain in the arse, they sounded and looked cool but they spent more time on hydraulic lifts for repair than on the road.

        I agree, I absolutely loved that car. To this day, if I could choose to own any super car, it would be high on my list.
