The march of time slows for nobody, not even unique automakers like Lamborghini. When the automaker launched the Aventador Ultimae, we thought it marked the tip of the V12 Lamborghini and the Aventador platform. Lamborghini, although, is having some hassle saying goodbye and has launched two one-offs that it’s utilizing as a real send-off to the V12 engine and the Aventador that got here out in 2011.
The one-offs are known as the Invencible coupe and Auténtica roadster. Like nearly all of limited-edition specials from Lamborghini, the 2 one-offs make the most of the present Aventador’s platform. Which means the fashions additionally include the identical 6.5-liter V12 engine that’s discovered within the Aventador Ultimae trim. So, energy is rated at 769 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque – mega figures by any measure. The 2 can even function all-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering.
In contrast to most of its opponents, Lamborghini isn’t afraid to dive into the deep finish of the insane design bucket. What makes the Invencible and Auténtica particular are their radical designs. The 2 fashions function totally carbon-fiber bodywork with styling that appears prefer it’s from a Japanese anime. Look onerous sufficient, and also you’ll spot components from limited-edition supercars from Lamborghini’s previous just like the Reventón, Veneno, Sesto Elemento, and track-focused Essenza SCV12.
On the within, Lamborghini has eliminated the Aventador’s central touchscreen and middle console controls for a cleaner look. The massive digital instrument cluster is now answerable for dealing with the entire readouts – we want homeowners good luck in attempting to regulate the system once they’re driving the automobile. As an alternative of a central touchscreen, the Invencible and Auténtica function hexagonal air vents and a barely up to date middle console with fewer controls.
Some will bemoan the truth that Lamborghini has, as soon as once more, utilized the Aventador platform to come back out with particular version fashions. Hate it or adore it, it’s Lamborghini’s factor, and with the automaker investing tens of millions into electrification, you may’t actually blame it. Plus, we’re positive that gained’t cease two individuals from shelling out tens of millions to purchase certainly one of these one-offs. With the electrified successor to the Aventador proper across the nook, this actually does mark the tip of the road for the naturally-aspirated V12 engine in Lamborghini vehicles. Since its introduction within the 350 GT, the V12 engine has had an unbelievable run.
