The final V-12 edition after a decade of the hypercar is a bit of a greatest-hits collection of the Aventador’s best features.
- Launched in 2011, the Lamborghini Aventador hypercar has now reached the end of its production run and has announced the final V-12–powered edition, named Ultimae.
- The Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae is making its global debut this week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the U.K., which runs July 8–11.
- Lamborghini has announced it will build 350 Ultimae coupes and 250 roadsters.
Lamborghini has released pictures and details of a limited-edition finale for the Aventador, the appropriately named Ultimae. It will mark the end of production for the long-lived hypercar, which was launched in 2011, with a run of 350 coupes and 250 roadsters to be sold globally.
As you might expect, the Ultimae’s specification is something of a greatest hits collection, combining many of the Aventador dynasty’s best features. The naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 engine has been turned up to deliver 769 horsepower, 39 hp more than the Aventador S, 10 hp more than the Aventador SVJ, and only 39 hp less than the Sián with its supercapacitor hybrid system. The Ultimae’s structure is also lighter than that of the Aventador S. The coupe weighs 3417 pounds without fluids according to Lamborghini—a 55-pound saving. That curb weight also gives an identical power-to-weight ratio to the fractionally lighter SVJ. Lamborghini claims a 2.8-second zero-to-62-mph time, an 8.7-second zero-to-124-mph time, and a 221-mph top speed for the coupe. Adequately fast, in other words.
