It's a last hurrah for the Lamborghini Aventador in the form of Ultimae - and what a beast it is indeed! The V12 bull has been around for a decade but the final version with 350 Coupes and 250 Roadsters brings a close to the chapter. Let's find out what it's all about!
The Lamborghini Aventador has been around for 10 years since the introduction of the LP700-4, and since then we've seen numerous different models including the likes of the SV, S and SVJ, plus plenty of special editions like Miura and Xago, but Ultimae literally means "last" in Latin, this is the end. As such we've got the 770hp NA V12 from the SVJ, we have the cleaner design to the body with elements of the SVJ but also of the S, and a car that although technologically might be a touch dated, is everything a supercar should be. The Lamborghini V12 models have a history of throwing out the rule book; they are wild and crazy, exactly what you think something like this should be.
Forget the lagging gearbox, the total impracticality of the interior, and the vastly out of date infotainment system, because none of that is why this car exists. Compared to the 900 SVJ Coupes and 800 SVJ Roadsters, the Ultimae is being produced in very limited numbers and of course they are all already spoken for. As such, it's a very special opportunity to be visiting Lamborghini's Squadra Corse racing division to take the keys to this Ultimae Roadster for a journey out into the hills to see what it's about.
