Lamborghini Says Farewell to Aventador With More Powerful Ultimae

Ultimae wants to be your bae

  • 770 hp Lambo could be last NA pure gas V12

  • Aventador gets S comfort, SVJ performance

 


Lamborghini is saying farewell to the Aventador. Like any good fighting bull, this one is going out with a flourish. The limited-edition Ultimae combines the SVJ’s performance, the S’s dynamics, and, unlike previous later edition Lamborghinis, enhances the bodywork instead of adding on wings and bolt-ons.

It’s called the Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae, and yeah, that’s a mouthful. With 770 hp, the naturally aspirated 6.5L V12 makes 10 hp more than the SVJ’s making it the most powerful Aventador. After all, the automaker has had 10 years to perfect the model.

Don’t expect it to be quicker, though, as the Ultimae is 25 kg heftier than the SVJ (and the same less than the S), coming in at 1,550 kg for the coupe. A convertible version will also be offered, and expect it to be a touch heavier.

Four-wheel steer, first introduced on the S, helps to make the Ultimae more agile at low and medium speed. The dynamic steering front axle is calibrated to make it sharper, and the brakes are massive and carbon. It’ll stop from 100 km/h in just 30 metres, even though it will probably take your lunch a bit more distance. It gets the S’s comfort seats, though, in case you were worried about long-range touring.

The company calls it the “culmination of Lamborghini’s aspirated-V12 design legacy.” This’ll be the last of its pure petrol V12’s, at least in the main lineup. To help celebrate that, 350 coupes and 250 roadsters will be sold, each numbered. Lamborghini says it will sit alongside the Countach, Diablo, and Murciélago in the company’s list of classics.

More than 300 colours will be offered, allowing some serious customisation, but the launch is this two-tone grey and grey with matt red teeth in the front spoiler. Expect loads of buyers to pick that spec, but they’re boring. Live a little, forget resale for a moment, and have your way with Lamborghini’s Ad Personam custom branch.
