The biggest, baddest Lamborghini supercar is about to be put out to pasture but it won’t be going quietly into the night.

    The Lamborghini Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae bids farewell to the Aventador after 10 years on sale, and could be the last time we see a non-hybrid V12 in a Lamborghini.

    Lamborghini says the Ultimae is designed to combine the best of the more luxurious Aventador S with the all-out, Nürburgring-blasting Aventador SVJ.

    As you’d expect, it’s fast. The 100km/h sprint takes 2.8 seconds, the 200km/h sprint takes 8.7 seconds, and the hardtop will do 355km/h given a long enough stretch of road.

    Power comes from a naturally-aspirated V12 engine making 574kW and 720Nm, sent to all four wheels through the same single-clutch automated manual transmission as before.

    That’s up 7kW on the SVJ and almost 30kW on the Aventador S, neither of which you’d call slow.

    Lamborghini has also used more carbon fibre to shed 25kg from the coupe’s kerb weight, and has recalibrated to send more power to the rear axle. This Aventador might be a bit of a handful…

    Compared to the ‘regular’ Aventador, the Ultimae has a unique front bumper that takes inspiration from the range-topping SVJ, unique colour combinations, and a new range of interior options to set it apart.

    The hero colour combination for the hardtop is a two-tone grey scheme, with matte red accents to set it off, while the Roadster is being shown in blue with a carbon roof. Inside, there’s contrast stitching and plenty of red highlights.

    Of course, you’re able to do essentially whatever you want to the car with enough time and money. The Ad Personam program gives Lamborghini buyers access to more than 300 colours, along with a huge array of carbon trim and wheel options.

    The car rides on 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres.

    Just 350 coupes and 250 convertibles will be built, and it’ll be offered around the world… with the exception of China, South Korea, Vietnam, Brazil, and Chile.

    Pricing hasn’t been revealed, but expect the Ultimae to kick off north of $1 million. Then again, can you put a price on history?
