The Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae is the most impressive Aventador that Lamborghini has created, with 769 brake horsepower.

But the Ultimae, which comes from the Latin term for “past of,” is just that — the closing version of the Aventador and Lamborghini’s previous comprehensive combustion V12 motor ahead of it moves to a hybrid edition, in accordance to Top Equipment.

The company claims it truly is creating only 350 Ultimae coupes and 250 roadsters.

Insider experienced the probability to test Lamborghini’s farewell version of the Aventador.

“Shall we go to Bologna? Or would you desire Modena, or Imola?” my buddy in the passenger seat questioned.

But she was cut brief as the motor roared into lifestyle and the Ultimae shot ahead.

It took us just 2.8 seconds to go from zero to 62 mph. The car has a top rated speed of 221 mph, but I am going to have to choose the firm’s word for that, as I thought far better of tests it out.

Inspite of its unbelievable electrical power, the car has a further side to it. When cruising alongside place roads — at the Italian pace limit of 90 kilometers an hour, or about 56 mph — the automobile is quite docile, thanks in element to its aluminum double-wishbone suspension.

When you are overtaking, the 7-pace automatic guide transmission is just as responsible as the four-wheel-push technique, and the electricity steering is energetic and responsive.

Insider also examined the Aventador SVJ to compare the two cars and trucks. One particular crucial variation was that the Ultimae offers a crystal clear check out via the rear window, whilst the SVJ is fitted with a large spoiler that reminded me of a Boeing 747-8 and greatly restricted the check out out of the rear window.

The Ultimae, on the other hand, just characteristics air inlets at the rear of the automobile, reminiscent of the iconic 1966 Lamborghini Miura.

The Ultimae is also geared up with the newest carbon-ceramic brake discs, which unquestionably did their occupation it felt as if an individual had thrown an anchor from a rubber dinghy when I strike the brakes.

The car does have its quirks, nonetheless.

The broad, small-profile tires rumbled audibly as we drove alongside fairly easy streets, and at 7.5 feet extensive which include the mirrors, the car or truck can also be tough to maneuver and park.

There is also not considerably space inside, and I think lengthier journeys would sense particularly cramped in the motor vehicle.

The identical concern provides itself in the trunk, which is found below the entrance hood. The trunk can hold just 140 liters, so there is certainly not even adequate place for a larger sized suitcase.

The gas tank can maintain up to 85 liters, but that is used up swiftly.

On its site, Lamborghini says the Ultimae has a blended consumption of 18 liters for every 100 kilometers, according to the WLTP measurement regular. It also claims the merged carbon-dioxide emissions are a huge 442 grams a kilometer. That is a whole lot.

But no a person cares about that in the courtyard of the Lodge Portici. A Lamborghini in the flesh appeals to persons.

A chef functioning the late change rushed around and asked for a selfie. Passersby whipped out their cellphones and took images by means of the fence. Finally, a mom approached and asked irrespective of whether her boy or girl could sit in the driver’s seat for a memento photo. With satisfaction, I said.

“Can I just take my ice product inside?” the little one questioned. No way — give that to mom, make sure you.
