  • Is the most powerful Aventador with 780PS from its 6.5-litre V12 engine.

  • A 7-speed gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system help it do the 0-100kmph sprint in 2.8 seconds, and hit 355kmph tops.

  • Is 25kg lighter than the Aventador S and gets four drive modes. 

  • A bolder front bumper, forged alloy wheels,  an SVJ-like rear end and an active rear wing makes up the design.

  • Cabin features a digital driver display, Apple CarPlay, connected car tech, voice commands and an optional telemetry system.

  • Prices likely pointing toward the Rs 9 crore (on-road) mark

In July 2021, The Lamborghini Aventador’s decade-long journey came to an end with the iconic Murcielago successor’s final iteration dubbed the Ultimae. Almost a year after its introduction, the folks from Sant'Agata Bolognese have brought it to India. While official prices for the supercar haven’t surfaced, you can bet it won’t be cheap, with a price tag likely pointing toward the Rs 9 crore (on-road) mark.

 

Lamborghini couldn’t have given a more beautiful arrivederci to the Aventador, than making the Ultimae the most hardcore of the lot. It still has the 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 motor, but in this iteration, it makes 780PS and 720Nm, making it the most powerful Aventador ever. 

Paired to an Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) 7-speed gearbox that sends the motor’s power to an all-wheel-drive system, the engine enables the supercar to sprint to 100kmph from standstill in just 2.8 seconds, and hit a top speed of 355kmph.

A power buff isn’t the only thing for the Aventador Ultimae. It weighs 1,550kg, 25kg less than the Aventador S, and retains the 1.98kg/PS weight-to-power ratio from the SVJ. Four-wheel steering aside we’ve got the ‘Strada’, ‘Sport’, ‘Corsa’ and ‘Ego’ drive modes to play with.  

The ‘Ego’ mode is for those who like to add a bit more of a personal touch in how the supercar works, as it allows one to set the parameters for the engine, gearbox, steering response, all-wheel-drive system, as well as the active suspension.

The Aventador already stands out as a timeless classic, and the Ultimae takes that up a notch with an aero-centric front bumper, as well as the SVJ’s rear diffuser and exhaust setup. Now, there’s also an active rear wing that has three modes – closed, maximum performance and maximum handling - depending upon the speed and the drive mode chosen. A range of 20- and 21-inch forged alloy wheels rounds off a poster-worthy design.

 

Those who want to learn the Aventador Ultimae’s limits around a racetrack can opt for an optional telemetry system to study all the data and find out areas where improvement might be needed. Elsewhere in the cabin, there’s a customizable TFT digital driver display, Apple CarPlay, connected car tech and voice commands.  

We already know that only 350 coupe and 250 roadster versions of the Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae will be produced globally. So for India, it’ll be an extremely rare sight even though we're yet to know how many units will show up. 

Lamborghini’s future will be electrified, as the carmaker plans to have hybrid versions of the Urus SUV, the Huracan, and the successor to the Aventador by 2024. The carmaker will also introduce its first all-electric model by 2030. But before that, we’re getting two new versions of the Urus, as well as a new variant of the Huracan, which will serve  as the swansong for pure combustion-engined Lamborghinis.
