The Lamborghini Aventador debuted in 2011 with the LP 700-4 to beat the competition. Ever since then, the auto brand has released different models of the Aventador, which take after the first edition in terms of fame.
However, the V12 hypercar has just seen its last release, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimate, and a lot of speculations and facts are trailing the news.
While this release means no more Aventador is expected, it also ends Lamo’s pure-V12 production car, hence the name “Ultimate”, which literarily means “final”.
The just-released model has gained attention from car enthusiasts, thanks to its different top-notch features. One thing Lambo is praised for is offering the car the most powerful in the lineup. The Ultimate produces more power than its predecessors. For example, the 6.5-liter version of the Ultimate produces 10bhp more power than the previous range-topping 6.5-litre unit of the Aventador, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
Also, the Ultimate beats other models in top speed, claiming the fastest road-going Aventador. Plus, the car can reaches 62mph in just 2.8 sec, which has no match from previous models.
However, despite its uniqueness and out-of-range features, the Ultimate shares some performances with previous models, such as the 531lb-ft torque and power-to-weight ratio shared with the SVJ.
Going further, the 350 coupes and 250 roadsters are available in different yet unique colour schemes. For example, Ultimate introduced the new grey-on-grey colour-scheme option for the brand. Plus, the roadster features an exposed carbon-fibre roof panel.
The car also stands out from other Aventadors with a unique styling package, sharing excellent components with the S and SVJ. According to the brand, more than 200 bespoke trims and colors are available on the shelf.
However, though the Ultimate marks the end of the Aventador production, a plug-in hybrid replacement will debut in 2023, which will be the brand’s first plug-in hybrid car.
The electrified car will share important features with Aventador but with electric features. For example, while the replacement car will be powered by a large-capacity V12, as with the Aventador, it will be equipped with an electrified drivetrain. This is not just a speculation but in line with the speech from the brand’s boss, Stephan Winkelmann.
According to Stephan, who was also involved in launching the first Aventador in 2011, much emotion is attached to the twelve-cylinder engine, and it has a long way to go in further production.
