The Lamborghini Aventador 780-4 comes with the most powerful V12 engine for an Aventador ever.
Lamborghini has launched the new Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae, which is powered by the last pure-combustion V12 from the manufacturer. The new Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae is a special variant of the brand’s flagship model, which sits in between the performance-spec Aventador SVJ and the Aventador S. The car is being offered in both coupe and roadster body types.
Globally, the Ultimae will be a limited-run model – only 350 units of the coupe and 250 units of the roadster will be produced. This also means that only a few units are allotted to India. While the car has been launched in India today, the auction for it went live a few months ago. This is because, for models like the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae, which are made-to-order, it usually takes months to get the car ready.
Lamborghini has given the LP 780-4 Ultimae the most powerful V12 engine of the Aventador line, which outputs 769bhp at 8,500rpm and a peak torque of 720Nm at 6,250rpm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. The car can reach triple-digit speeds in just 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 355km/h.
The Ultimae benefits from extensive use of carbon fibre in its chassis construction, which has brought down the dry-weight of the car to just 1,550kgs. The car is the final iteration of cars with the non-electrified V12 engine, considering that its successor would be a plug-in hybrid, which is part of the company’s plan to electrify its entire line-up by 2024.
