Lamborghini Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae Roadster launched in India
Ask any millennial, for their top five ultimate dream cars list and there's a very high chance that the Lamborghini Aventador will be on it. Launched at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the Aventador, with its outer worldly styling and that howling-mad naturally aspirated V12 engine, quickly stole the hearts of supercar fanatics and 12 years in, it still is one of the most desirable supercars around.
Earlier last year, Lamborghini unveiled the Ultimae, which will mark the end of production for the long-lived supercar, with a run of 350 coupes and 250 roadsters to be sold globally. And now, the Ultimae twins have made it to Indian shores. Lamborghini hasn't given away prices for the limited-edition supercar though.
Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae Styling
Its wild styling has always been the Aventador's main forte. It is an occasion to look at and the Ultimae, that's no different. It continues to be a jaw dropper and subtle touches like revised diffusers at the front and back, and a more aggressive side skirt give it an identity of its own.
The most significant styling change is at the back, which features a couple of mid-mounted exhausts that mimic the ones on the Huracan STO, which you have to agree look really cool. The Ultimae Roadster gets the option of a very sick exposed carbonfibre roof panels too!
Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae Engine and Chassis
The Aventador Ultimae gets the same 6.5-litre naturally aspirated engine from its Nurburgring record beating sibling the SVJ. Although it has been massaged to produce a little more power. With 769bhp (10bhp more than the SVJ) and 720Nm, the last edition of the Aventador is also the most powerful. Power is sent to all four wheels via Lamborghini's famed neck-shattering single-clutch gearbox. The Aventador Ultimae catapults from 0 to 100kmph in just 2.8 seconds, and it tops out at 355kmph and that makes it one of the quickest and fastest naturally aspirated cars ever.
The Aventador Ultimae is slightly heavier than the SVJ, thanks to its plusher S-based interior, rear-wheel steer system and adaptive dampers. Stopping power is handled by carbon ceramic brakes with aluminium monobloc calipers.
Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae Rivals
The Aventador Ultimae rivals the likes of the McLaren 720s Spider and the Ferrari F8 Tributo Spider. Rush to your nearest Lamborghini dealer right now, if you want to own the last iteration of the 21st century bedroom poster car. Is it a good way to bid adieu to this legend? We certainly think so!
