  • Apple Fellow and car enthusiast Phil Schiller has been talking to Lamborghini as the company celebrates the Countach.
  • Schiller spoke about design, emotion, and the move to electric across two videos.

As Lamborghini celebrates its stunning Countach, the Italian car firm spent some time with Apple Fellow Phil Schiller — a big car enthusiast. The result is two videos in which Schiller talks about himself, Apple, and of course the Lamborghini Countach.

The first video involves Schiller talking to someone off-camera in a way that will be immediately familiar to anyone who has seen an Apple product announcement. Schiller talks about various things relating to design, including the way inventors can predict the future by creating it rather than sitting back and waiting to see what happens.

In the second video, Schiller faces a dozen questions about himself and Apple. We find out that Schiller is most proud of his work on the iPod, but that there's still more to come from him and Apple. Schiller, when asked about the move to electric cars, says that he would "always" choose combustion but that he's also "ready for electric." As car companies continue the move towards electric vehicles, Schiller also pointed out that "the world requires it of us."

You can see both videos over on the Lamborghini website and they're well worth a watch. If only for some gorgeous footage of one of the world's most unmistakable supercars.

Who doesn't love a Lamborghini Countach? Slap Apple CarPlay and an iPhone 12 into it and it'd be perfect.
