Apparently, Aoshima is going to unveil two 2015 releases at the Hobby
Forum on Nov. 9th in Kanagawa Japan. Both are expected to be a variation
of existing kits, and one of which is announced on their Japanese blog:

Countach '88 by injection
http://ameblo.jp/aoshima-kumablog/day-20141026.html

That's the US spec with 35 HP less, right? AFAIK, the injection Countach has
never been kitted, but the question is...is there really such a high demand for
the US spec Countach kit?

The car itself doesn't appeal to me, but the kit will make L150 conversion easier, I suppose...

I'm more interested in the Crown Athlete.

I will probably get the Countach to round out the collection, though the choice baffles me. Seems to me the anniversary or the JGTC version would have been much more attractive.

True, didn't even think about the licensing issue, just saw the mention of the P1 and it reminded me that I would also like to see the 918 released. :redface:

I am right there with you, I want to see it plastic as well.

I don't think it was bad. Maybe very complicated to finish lol. I guess Aoshima just wanted a try at it. Either kits are excellent tho.

Fujimi used to own a real 5000QV, so the kit shouldn't be bad. It's tricky to
put the chassis to the body, and LP400 and LP500 may have some accuracy problems, though...

Fujimi's Countach 5000 QV is carbureted, while Aoshima's upcoming kit is fuel
injected (but not the US version because it won't come with the US bumpers).
I believe the only FE Countach kit is Revell/Monogram's Anniversary, so
5000 QV FE is the first in 1/24 plastic.

Aventador 50th Anniversario is nice.
