To send out the Aventador model, Lamborghini has come up with a particularly compelling swan song. It is the most powerful Aventador to come down the pike, it has a redesigned aero system, and it comes with a suite of special interior and exterior cosmetic touches as well. Lamborghini calls the end-game Aventador variant the Ultimae LP 780-4. It will be available in coupe and roadster styles. Only 600 examples will be made in all: 350 coupes and 250 roadsters.
The 780 in the model variant designation is the Ultimae’s V12 engine. The 6.5L 780 CV V12 is likely the last regular-production V12 to emerge from Lamborghini without hybrid electric support, and it is capable of delivering up to 769 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. It comes with Lamborghini’s 7-speed ISR (independent shift rod) gearbox. The Aventador Ultimae in hard-top form can reach 62 MPH in 2.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 355 km/h, or 221 MPH; the roadster adds a tenth of a second to the 0-62 time.
A great deal of carbon fiber makes the Ultimae a very lightweight car—it tips the scales at 3,400 pounds, mainly due to a monocoque design—and Lambo came up with an aerodynamics package to suit the power-to-weight ratio. The electronically operated spoiler in back can adjust to three positions for compensation, and the underbody is entirely paneled. The Ultimae also features 4-wheel steering that combines Lambo’s Dynamic and Rear-Wheel systems, and an active suspension.
The Ultimae’s shape and livery was designed by the automaker’s Centro Stile division. To close out the Aventador, Lamborghini elected to make the interior of the Ultimae a luxurious drive, and offers a host of Ad Personam customization options for the final Aventador.
The Aventador was a hit with celebrities. Chris Brown applied custom touches to his Aventador SV coupe and Aventador SV roadster, and Kylie Jenner added an Aventador SV Roadster to her garage as well.
