It’s the end of an era. Lamborghini says farewell to the Aventador.
Lamborghini has stopped production of a legendary supercar and says farewell to the Aventador with the final Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae Roadster.
To mark the end of production, this very special car comes in a very special light blue “Ad Personam” color.
It’s the very last pure, naturally-aspirated V12 Lamborghini to be produced in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
Unfortunately for American buyers the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae Roadster is only headed to the Swiss market. (Still time to buy that chateau you’ve been dreaming about).
First unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 11 years ago as the Aventador LP 700-4, the name refers to its 700 horsepower and permanent four-wheel drive.
With an engine mounted longways at the rear – aka Longitudinale Posteriore – the Aventador brought to the market several important new technologies as well as a classic design and, of course, incredible performance. Lamborghini performance.
Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Lamborghini, told the media: “The Aventador is a jump of two generations in terms of design and technology, with an exceptional package of unique, innovative technologies and performance that is simply overwhelming.”
With more than eight model derivatives and 11,465 cars delivered to Lamborghini customers worldwide, the Aventador brought more than 10 one-off and limited editions while winning numerous awards and setting track records during the span of its lifetime.
And it was, of course, featured in many films and videos.
“The Lamborghini Aventador was a game-changer at its launch, and the flagship Lamborghini model for 11 years of production,” Winkelmann said recently. “The V12 engine has been part of Lamborghini’s heritage since the company’s earliest days; the beating heart of models from Miura to Diablo, Countach to Murciélago. The Aventador captured Lamborghini’s competencies in design and engineering when it debuted in 2011, with Lamborghini values that are always at the center of the company and product impetus: pure, futuristic design; benchmarking performance; and addressing technical challenges with innovation to produce the most emotive, class-leading super sports cars. These principles are the very essence of the Lamborghini Aventador, and assure its timeless appeal.”
And did you know that more Aventadors have been sold by Lamborghini than the total of all previous V12 models?
For instance, in just the fifth year, the Italian automaker delivered to customers 5,000 units. The 10,000th Aventador was delivered in September 2020.
So what else makes this supercar great? Let’s take a look and make our farewell to the Aventador memorable.
The Aventador’s technical innovations were many – driven by Lamborghini’s R&D department headed by Chief Technical Officer Maurizio Reggiani working in close collaboration with the Centro Stile design department, in a ‘clean sheet’ approach.
It was the first of its kind in a production car, a lightweight carbon fiber single-piece monocoque weighing just 147.5 kg.
It was produced using Lamborghini’s patented RTM-Lambo™ process, manufactured entirely in-house. And it delivered maximum torsional stiffness and safety for the car’s occupants.
Automobili Lamborghini’s expertise in carbon fiber and lightweight technologies is represented throughout the Aventador’s history and evolution.
For instance, there were extensive developments in forged composite technologies.
A team of “flying doctors” was established at the Aventador’s inception, traveling across the world to support dealers with specialist diagnostics and repairs to the carbon fiber monocoque when damaged.
The new 6.5 liter 12-cylinder engine, producing 700 horsepower at a maximum of 8,250 rpm, delivered an incredible zero to 60 in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 217 mph.
With 508 lb-feet of torque and a well-rounded torque curve, the Aventador’s pulling power, dynamism, aerodynamic efficiency, and precision handling, are set to the soundtrack of the V12 engine’s roar.
And over the years, it has evolved to maintain the Aventador’s legendary status and appeal throughout its lifetime evolution.
The Aventador’s design included an aeronautically-inspired, dynamic, sculpted super sports car. Its tight lines, interesting surfaces, and juxtaposition of angles, including the scissor doors on the V12 Lamborghinis, created a timeless automotive design as well as a powerful piece of enduring automotive art.
Every Aventador produced is, in fact, considered a piece of art; with 85 percent of Aventadors featuring Ad Personam personalization by their owners: more than 200 unique colors and trims have been created for the Aventador.
What else is there to love about the Aventador? Let’s take a look at the 2022 model:
The 2022 Aventador by Lamborghini anticipates that future with an innovative low-slung design that is bursting with technology – including extensive use of carbon filter – and a V12 engine that is one for the history books.
It’s an authentic design masterpiece that blends stark dynamism with aggressive aerodynamics to produce a cutting-edge monocoque. Inside, the highly customizable cabin combines high-level technology with luxury, premium-quality materials, and skillful Italian craftsmanship. It’s a supercar that works for your weekend whims and your family errands.
Because real life doesn’t have to be boring. The powerful 769-hp V-12 engine and exotic low-slung exterior make the Aventador the very definition of a hypercar. You can get from zero to 60 in 2.8 seconds and reach a searing top speed of 217 mph. So what will your future be? Familiar? Or something a little more? There’s room for two inside the 2022 Adventador’s cockpit. So grab that someone special and take off into a bright new future. Starting at $450,000.
Features we love:
-Every Aventador sports scissor doors that swing open, adding to the inherent drama.
-The Aventador’s technical specifications, dimensions and performance all add up to greatness – the futuristic interior can be fitted with a variety of premium materials and personalized options.
-Lamborghini is building just 600 of the 2022 Aventadors globally (hence the moniker “Ultimae”) as a sendoff to the great car.
-A finely tuned V-12 engine and weight-saving technology make this one of the lightest and fastest Lamborghinis ever.
-This supercar’s powertrain features a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 that develops 769 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque.
