Lamborghini, an Italian manufacturer, bids farewell to the naturally-aspirated V12 engine with the all-new Invencible Coupe and the Autentica Roadster. These V12 supercars have been revealed ahead of the company's first hybrid car launch in the market. The Aventador platform, which debuted along with the original LP 700-4, serves as the foundation for the Lamborghini Invencible and the Autentica. Interestingly, these two supercars emerged at a time when the Ultimae was widely believed to be the brand's final vehicle to feature a V12 engine. The Veneo, a Lamborghini Aventador derivative, is an inspiration for the recently unveiled supercars. Speaking of the powertrain, a 6.5-litre V12 engine, which produces 807bhp of maximum power in the Essenza SCV12, will power both models.
Sharing his views on bidding farewell to the powerful engine, Stephan Winkelmann, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman, and CEO, commented, 'The V12 engine is one of the pillars of our history and our marque's success.' He further added, 'As we head towards embracing a new era of hybridization at the heart of our Cor Tauri strategy, this is the Lamborghini way of celebrating the naturally aspirated V12 with two one-off vehicles that perfectly represent our concept of excellence in personalisation.'

The design language of supercars – the Invencible coupe and the Autentica roadster – is based on other V12-powered models of the company. The supercars have a rear wing that is reminiscent of the Sesto Elemento built on the Gallardo platform. Both will have a body made entirely of carbon fibre and adorned with Lamborghini's signature hexagonal motif. The Autentica roadster has a Grigio Titans theme, while the Invencible coupe is finished in Rosso Efesto. Inside, these models include 3D-printed air vents and simple dashboards devoid of any infotainment system.

Lamborghini is tight-lipped about the performance specifications and prices of these supercars. We expect them to uncover these details soon. As of now, we only know that the recently unveiled duo will be the last cars to come equipped with the mammoth V12 engine. The company's decision to bid farewell to its powerful engine has come ahead of its hybridisation.
