The Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae Is The Final Model But Is It The Best?

The Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae will soon go the way of the dodo but to send it off in style, the automaker introduced the Ultimae variant in mid-2021. Created as the ultimate swan song to the iconic supercar, the Ultimae is quite spectacular and was recently tested by Carfection.

In creating the Ultimae, Lamborghini decided against developing a car that would be even more track-focused than the SVJ and complete with outlandish wings and splitters. Instead, it decided to make the final version of the Aventador a middle ground between the S and the SVJ.

This philosophy is most evident in the car’s exterior design which borrows elements from the S and the SVJ. For example, the front fascia is largely identical to the S but does include an active splitter and intake flaps. Meanwhile, the rear of the car has some SVJ-inspired components, the most notable of which are the dual exhaust pipes and the carbon fiber diffuser.

Found beneath the striking bodywork is Lamborghini’s familiar 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 but upgraded to deliver 770 hp at 8,700 rpm and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque. This gives the Ultimae 39 hp more than a regular S and 10 hp more than an SVJ. It also weighs less than the S but is slightly heavier than the SVJ, although the added grunt means its power-to-weight ratio is exactly the same as the SVJ.

Carfection’s Harry Catchpole had the chance to put the car through its paces on some absolutely beautiful roads and in a world where V12-powered performance cars like these are becoming increasingly rare, it’s important to celebrate cars like this while they’re still around.
