Lamborghini’s Last Aventador Marks the End of Its NA V12 Era

The last Aventador has rolled off the production line, marking the end of Lamborghini’s last naturally aspirated V12 machine. Handcrafted in the Sant’ Agata Bolognese plant, the final unit is a concoction of all previous variants.

Christened as the LP 780-4 Ultimae, it features the same 6.5-liter V12 from the SVJ, which makes 770 horsepower and 720 Nm, with a 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds. The top speed is reduced from 349 km/h to 334, but it also packs four-wheel steering thanks to the S base. Adding to its three driving modes is the Ego, which allows the driver to set their optimal settings for parts such as the suspension and gearbox.

The infotainment system comes with Apple CarPlay and a tracking system for the car. Exterior wise, it has the side skirts, intake model, and dual exit exhausts of the SVJ, and a retractable wing in place of the regular spoiler. The front bumper of the S completes the exterior, with a carbon fiber chassis that allows its weight to be a respectable 1600kg. 350 of the Ultimae will be coupes and 250 as roadsters; but alas, fifteen of them are now mere decorations of the ocean floor in the Azores Islands on March, along with 3985 other vehicles of the Volkswagen group. The incident obliged the brand to rebuild what was lost.


p class=”MsoNormal”>The Aventador has had a long journey as the sole flagship NA V12 supercar. Unveiled in 2011, it served as the successor to the famed Murcielago. Countless special editions and specs were made over the years, all built by hand in the same plant. It also served as the base for many of Lamborghini’s other models, such as the Veneno, Sian, and the most recent Countach. Though it is a delayed farewell, the 12-year run of the Italian horse has crossed the end, alongside many other models geared towards car enthusiasts. A humble climax to a memorable supercar, before the age of hybrids and electrics.
