The Final V12 Lamborghini Aventador

To be produced in a numbered series of 350 coupes and 250 roadsters, the Lamborghini Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae bids farewell in ferocious style to the longitudinally mounted, naturally aspirated Lamborghini V12.

Automobili Lamborghini unveiled the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae in August: a celebration of the iconic V12 super sports car and combustion engine in a final production model.

The famed supercar manufacture says the Ultimae edition concentrates the purest features of all Aventador editions into a perfect finale.

The Aventador LP 780-4 harnesses the performance of the SVJ and intensifies the sophisticated elegance of the Aventador S, converging design and dynamism into a decisive collector’s piece in both coupé and roadster forms.

Lamborghini says that, as the last of its kind, the Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae delivers the maximum power and conclusive performance expected from Lamborghini’s current V12 engine, combined with the flagship supercar’s inimitable design DNA.

The Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae’s elegant lines belie the performance of this final edition. The twelve-cylinder, 6.5-litre ‘Longitudinale Posteriore’ (LP) engine delivers 780hp (573kW), which is 40hp more than the Aventador S and 10hp over the SVJ to its permanent four-wheel drivetrain.

The LP 780-4 Ultimae celebrates the visceral character, power, and performance of the Lamborghini’s Aventador’s 10-year evolution, including a variety of super sports technical advances and the purity of the original Aventador concept. Lamborghini says it is the grand finale of the traditional V12 combustion engine, and the ultimate Aventador in every sense.

The Aventador LP 780-4’s unique, extremely rigid and lightweight carbon fibre monocoque, and extensive use of carbon fibre throughout the body, contributes to its dry weight of just 1,550kg. The coupé version, weighing 25kg less than the Aventador S, delivers the same weight-to-power ratio as the SVJ at 1.98 kg/hp accelerating from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 355km/h, with 720Nm of torque at a maximum 6750rpm, and optimized VVT (Variable Valve Timing) and VIS (Variable Intake System) for an optimised torque curve. Its CCB braking system delivers 100km/h to standstill in just 30m.

Lateral control is optimised through four-wheel steering, introduced on the Aventador S, ensuring agility at low and medium speeds and enhanced stability at high speed. Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) on the front axle is calibrated for responsive feedback with sharp turn-in while adapted to integrate with the active rear-wheel steering on the rear axle.

The permanent four-wheel drive, due to the rear-wheel steering, is calibrated to allow more torque to the rear axle so that when powering off, less torque is shifted to the front axle to allow sporty but safe over-steer behaviour.

The LP 780-4 Ultimae’s design adopts a specific front bumper concept for increased aero load on the front, with longitudinal performance similar to the SVJ. The ESC is calibrated for fast, precise traction control and vehicle dynamics, recognising, and adapting to differences in grip, including on low-grip surfaces such as snow and ice.

The Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae celebrates the Lamborghini Aventador’s complex yet elegant lines and surfaces: the culmination of Lamborghini’s aspirated-V12 design legacy. Paying homage to the benchmark performance of the SVJ and the ageless super sports elegance of the S model, it takes the best components of both to create a perfect balance between performance and dynamism with an enduring sophistication.

Silver Dianthus 20” and 21” forged alloys come as standard together with further 20” and 21” options in Dianthus, Leiron and Nireo in bronze, black and titanium, fitted with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres.

The exterior features the extension of the colour accent livery in three colours: white, silver and bronze matching the accent on the front bumpers and the rear diffuser fins. Silver callipers as standard are joined by a range of further optional calliper colours that are echoed in the wheel monolock.
