Lamborghini Aventador successor to keep V12 but add hybrid punch

New supercar will begin the firm’s shift to electrification with a version of the Sian's unusual hybrid set-up

Lamborghini is gearing up to launch the long-awaited replacement for the Aventador in 2022 – and the new V12 supercar will, unlike its predecessor, feature a hybrid powertrain as one of the first steps the brand is taking to ‘reinvent’ itself for the electric age.

The new flagship machine from the Sant’Agata manufacturer is due to be revealed this year and will go on sale shortly after the arrival of a plug-in hybrid version of the Urus SUV. It is set to be the final series-production Lamborghini supercar to use the firm’s fabled 6.5-litre V12, with the subsequent generation likely to adopt electric power.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Lamborghini posted the second-best financial results in its history in 2020 and company boss Stephan Winkelmann, who recently rejoined Lamborghini after spells at Audi Sport and Bugatti, told Autocar that 2021 is a “moment of stabilisation” before it “starts pushing for the next level” in 2022.

Lamborghini Aventador bows out with 769bhp Ultimae edition

New LP 780-4 Ultimae edition is the final non-electrified outing for Lambo's hallowed V12

More than a decade after its launch, the Lamborghini Aventador is bowing out with the limited-run LP 780-4 Ultimae edition, which is also Sant’Agata’s final pure-combustion V12 production car.

Appearing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Ultimae is described as “a celebration of the iconic V12 super-sports car and combustion engine in a final production model”.

As reported by Autocar earlier this year, Lamborghini’s venerable naturally aspirated 12-cylinder engine will be used for a final time in the Aventador’s successor but with a hybrid powertrain element serving as a bridge to pure-electric Lamborghini models in the future.

The 6.5-litre unit produces 10bhp more in the LP 780-4 Ultimae than in the previous range-topping Aventador, the SVJ, sending 769bhp (780PS, hence the name) to both axles, which means Lamborghini’s final pure-combustion V12 model is also its most powerful. The Aventador-based Essenza SCV12 produces 819bhp but is limited to track use.

The Ultimae’s 531lb ft torque peak matches the SVJ’s, with which it shares its power- to-weight ratio. But with a 0-62mph time of just 2.8sec and a top speed of 221mph, the Ultimae claims the crown as the fastest road-going Aventador.

Lamborghini Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae

Automobili Lamborghini announced the Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae: a celebration of the iconic V12 super sports car and combustion engine in a final production model, concentrating the purest features of all Aventador editions into a perfect finale. The Lamborghini Aventador LP780-4 harnesses the performance of the SVJ and intensifies the sophisticated elegance of the Aventador S, converging design and dynamism into a decisive collector's piece in both coupé and roadster forms.

"The Aventador LP780-4 denotes the final, purest, timeless naturally-aspirated production V12 Lamborghini," says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "It delivers the essential twelve-cylinder experience in terms of inimitable design, engineering solutions and the most emotive driving experience, and is the definitive Aventador concluding an extraordinary era. It is the last of its kind: it delivers the maximum power and conclusive performance expected from Lamborghini's current V12 engine, combined with our inimitable flagship's design DNA. The Aventador was destined to become a classic from launch, and the Aventador LP780-4 is the most beautiful expression of timeless design and technical solutions in a final edition: Ultimae."

After more than a year where events worldwide were cancelled due to the pandemic, the Lamborghini Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae coupe and roadster will be displayed at the UK's 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed in front of automotive enthusiasts and owners.

Lamborghini Reveal The Final Aventador Called Lp 780-4 Ultimae

The Lamborghini Aventador is coming to an end folks as this LP780-4 Ultimae variant is the final iteration of the V12 supercar from Sant’Agata Bolognese.

The original LP700-4 was unveiled more than a decade ago at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and while the variants gained power over time, this is the most powerful of the lot.

LP780-4 means the 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 delivers 780 PS (769 hp; 574 kW) which makes it more powerful than the SVJ but it cranks out the same 720 Nm (530 lb-ft) of torque. The Ultimae tips the scales at 1,550 kg making it 25 kg lighter than the Aventador S but offering the same power-to-weight ratio as the SVJ.

The reason for this car was to create a synthesis of the performance of Aventador SVJ and the sophisticated design of Aventador S. It comes in both coupé and roadster variants and will be limited to 250 and 250 units respectively.

I am sorry, I cannot get over the looks of any of the Aventador range. It also not that fast actually. (Compared to other Supercars)
Its so overengineered, sometimes less is more.

Lamborghini reveals LP 780-4 Ultimae as final (and fastest) Aventador

The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae is here to mark the end of an era. Or, in the words of CEO Stephan Winkelmann, you can consider it a “celebration of the iconic V12 super sports car and combustion engine in a final production model”.

Set to be produced in limited numbers (as in 350 coupes and 250 roadsters) the LP 780-4 Ultimae is the final Aventador edition, and to ensure it has the most fitting send-off, it also happens to be the most powerful. Featuring an upgraded version of the SVJ’s 6,5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine, the Ultimae boasts outputs of 574 kW at 8 500 r/min and 720 N.m from 6 750 r/min, making it Lamborghini’s most potent non-hybrid road car. 0-100 km/h comes up in just 2,8 seconds and the top speed is listed at 355 km/h.

Built around an extremely rigid and lightweight carbon fibre monocoque, and making extensive use of carbon fibre for the body, the new edition weighs just 1 500 kg. In fact, the coupe version is a cool 25 kg lighter than the Aventador S.

The LP 780-4 Ultimae also boasts a unique aerodynamic exterior package, which includes a model-specific front bumper as well as a rear wing that forms part of the active aero system. Of course, rear-wheel steering and permanent all-wheel drive are part of the deal here too.

Lamborghini Aventador Lp 780-4 Ultimae Pricing For South Africa

We have confirmed that pricing will be as follows;

Aventador Ultimae Coupé – R9,600,000
Avetnador Ultimae Roadster – R10,600,000

As a reminder, they will only be making 350 Coupé units and 250 Roadster units so you will need to act fast to secure one.

For that serious amount of money, you will get a 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 that delivers 780 PS (769 hp; 574 kW) which makes it more powerful than the SVJ but it cranks out the same 720 Nm (530 lb-ft) of torque.

Lamborghini Aventador Successor To Pack All-New V12 Engine

The Lamborghini Aventador has finally come to an end with the reveal of the LP780-4 Ultimae but lucky for us petrolheads and future owners, the V12 is not being ditched.

According to Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann, they are working on a brand-new replacement unit that will share only its cylinder count with the current Lamborghini V12.

The L539 V12 was specifically built for the game-changing launch of the Aventador and was the second ever all-new V12 engine to find its home in a Lamborghini. Prior to this, all V12 Bulls made us of an evolution of the Bizzarini V12 engine. This was designed by Giotto Bizzarini in the early 1960s and started out life as a 3.5-litre V12 in 1963 and ended up as a 6.5-litre V12 in the mighty Murcielago.

So the V12 that is being developed will be the third in their entire history which makes it a critical job to get spot on.

Lamborghini’s V12 not dead yet! All-new version in the works

When launching the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimate recently, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said that the normally-aspirated V12 supercar would be the last of its kind. Many feared that this signalled the end of the 12-cylinder road for Lamborghini, however a new report indicates that this is not the case.

According to Autoblog, Lamborghini is working on a brand new electrified V12 powertrain for the Aventador’s replacement, which is due in 2023. According to the US publication, the new V12 will still be normally aspirated, as Lamborghini believes that force feeding puts unnecessary strain on the motor, while also adding a weight penalty.

In order to meet future emissions regulations, the forthcoming V12 will be paired with an electric motor, but it won’t be the same system that we see in the current Sian hypercar.

“The technology is different, it’s a completely new engine, a completely new drivetrain, a new battery, everything is completely new. There’s nothing out of the Sián or out of the Aventador,” Winkelmann told Autoblog.

Lamborghini boss details 2023 super-hybrid and new models

CEO Stephan Winkelmann opens up on new super-saloon, hybrid V12s and preserving the firm's character

Nearly 11 years after its unveiling, the Lamborghini Aventador is destined for retirement and the commemorative Ultimae edition will serve as Sant’Agata’s final non-electrified V12-powered production car – the last in a line of top-rung sports cars that stretches back to the 350 GT of 1964.

The Aventador’s successor, launching in 2023, will retain the 12-cylinder motor, but it will make the landmark shift to plug-in hybrid power and be joined on sale by a raft of other electrified models, including an all-new, four-seat pure EV in the coming years.

We caught up with Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann to hear how he will lead the Italian brand through this transformative era.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster Reportedly Wears R175 Million Number Plate

To our knowledge, the most expensive number plate in the world was AA9 in Dubai which sold for Dhs 38million in May this year.

Now according to YouTuber Fipeux, we could be looking at a new most expensive number plate in the world on this Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster.

The YouTuber states that the owner of the drop-top Bull splashed out €10 million at an auction to secure the Qatari plate reading 123. That equates to about R175 million and would therefore make it the most expensive in the world.
