Lamborghini has unveiled the very last Aventador’s, the LP780-4 ULTIMAE. It is the latest update to Lamborghini’s flagship model, joining the ranks of the LP700-4 and S. But, it represents more than just the end of the Aventador name, so it’s a lot more special than you might think.

Lamborghini, as promised, unveiled its last-ever hypercar to be powered by a naturally aspirated V-12. As we know, the Italian manufacturer intends on adding some form of hybrid powertrain to every Lamborghini by 2023.
The Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae receives a redesigned front fascia in terms of aesthetics. Its splitter has been increased in size, and air inlets have been installed to improve the car’s aerodynamics.
The rear is based on the SVJ, with the exception that the Ultimae lacks a fixed spoiler.
It has 20" Silver Dianthus wheels up front and 21" Silver Dianthus wheels up back. They come in bronze, black, and titanium grey.

This Ultimae features leather and Alcantara upholstery on the inside. The seats also have carbon parts and a "Y" motif. The "Ultimae" insignia is seen next to the seat, and there is also a plaque displaying the car number on the driver’s side. Otherwise, the Ultimae is the Aventador you know and love.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae is powered by the ferocious 6.5 liter V-12 engine. The number 780 on the nameplate denotes the power of this beast in PS, so we’re talking about 769 horsepower to go with 531 pound-feet of torque.
To put this into perspective, the Ultimae has 39 horsepower more than the Aventador S, 10 horsepower more than the Aventador SVJ, and is only shy 39 horsepower on the Sian Hybrid.
The liberal use of carbon fiber helps Lamborghini to keep the weight down. The LP 780-4 weighs in at 3,417 pounds. The 7-speed transmission sends power to all four wheels. 0-60 mph is done away within just 2.9 seconds, and It takes 8.7 seconds to reach 124 mph. The Italian bull can reach speeds of up to 220 miles per hour. It includes four-wheel steering, just like the Aventador S, for nimble cornering.

Lamborghini LP 780 4 Ultimae Pricing and Availability
The Lamborghini LP 780-4 Ultimae will be limited to just 350 units in coupe form while tere will be 250 Lamborghini LP 780-4 Roadsters as well.
Pricing has yet to be announced by Lamborghini. However, we can take an easy guess that since this is a limited run Lambo and the last in the reign of V-12s, prices will be north of half a million dollars.
Lamborghini was unlikely to introduce a new model in the traditional sense. According to the automaker’s initial plan, a fully new top model should have debuted by now, but in light of the advancement of EVs, the sports carmaker has chosen to give the ten-year-old Lamborghini one last facelift. The most recent edition should increase the life cycle by a few years.
The very first examples have been already delivered, and the supercar will be on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed between July 8 to 11.
