Lamborghini announced that production of the Aventador supercar will be phased out by the end of 2021, and with it the naturally-aspirated V12 engine, which was once developed specifically for this model, will become history.
The Italians decided to say goodbye to Lamborghini Aventador with the release of a special version called “LP 780-4 Ultimae”, and both the coupe and the roadster received this modification.
The developers note that the novelty combines the dynamics of the SVJ variant and the calm character of the Aventador S. Specifically from the SVJ, it got the same sill plates and a massive diffuser with upward exhaust pipes.
At the same time, the front fairing here is almost the same as on the base model, although it has a slightly modified shape, due to which the Italians managed to increase the downforce on the front axle. But the massive rear wing with the ALA 2.0 active aerodynamics system, familiar from the extreme SVJ, is not supposed to be a novelty.
As for the interior, the “farewell” modification has almost the same rich finish as the base S-version of the model. At the same time, it offers the broadest personalization program, providing customers with a choice of more than 300 body colors and a variety of interior finishes.
On the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae, the aforementioned 6.5-liter V12 engine is boosted to 780 hp. (+ 10 forces compared to the Aventador SVJ), although the torque remains the same – 720 Nm. The power unit works in tandem with a seven-band Graziano robot with one clutch.
It is reported that the supercar’s all-wheel drive transmission and all-wheel drive chassis have been reconfigured. Plus, the modification boasts the presence of carbon-ceramic brakes in the base, which stop the car from 100 km / h for 30 meters.
The dry weight of the “farewell” special version is at the level of 1,550 kg. Thus, it is 25 kg lighter than the base S version, but also heavier than the top SVJ. From a place to a hundred, the coupe accelerates in 2.8 seconds (like the SVJ), and from 0-200 km / h in 8.7 seconds (+ 0.1). Roadster on these indicators is 0.1 sec slower, the maximum speed reaches 355 km / h.
The Italians are planning to show the supercar performed by Ultimae “live” in July 2021 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It is known that the edition of the special version will be 350 coupes and 250 roadsters. These cars can be ordered in any country where the Italian brand is represented, with the exception of Brazil, Vietnam, China, South Korea and Chile.
It will be possible to buy the final version of Aventador in Russia – the price of a coupe will be at least 30,080,381 rubles, and for a roadster you will have to pay from 33,088,419 rubles, but the quota is not specified. As for the successor to Aventador, it will already be hybrid and will appear only in the twenty-third.
