Lamborghini Aventador production has now stopped! – An era of V12 dominance is over

Lamborghini has decided to end the production of the Aventador with their focus shifting toward a hybrid supercar future.

Lamborghini has decided to stop the production of the Aventador after 11 years of service. The last Aventador has rolled out off its production line in the form of the LP780-4 Ultimae Roadster. The Aventador was launched in 2011 in the Geneva motor show in 2011 as the LP 700-4 which featured a 700 horsepower engine placed in the rear which powered the wheels with a four-wheel drive. The Aventador was one of the most successful cars that came with a Lamborghini batch in its 11 years of production. 

The Glory of Aventador

The Aventador was touted as a game changer with its launch itself back in 2011. It came with a newly developed V-12 that was placed as the heart of the flawless design of the supercar. It was hailed as a two generational leap in terms of design and technology by  Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. It saw mind boggling numbers in terms of sales, crossing the 10 thousand mark in September 2020 and totalling a staggering 11,465 cars. These numbers are unheard of when it comes to the cars of its league. It had big shoes to fill being the successor to the legendary Mercialago which is one of the most iconic supercars from the Italian manufacturer. The Aventador saw itself evolve as a beast with over 8 iterations over the years. It started with the Aventador LP 700-4 and came to an end with the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae Roadster marking an end to the legacy that it leaves behind. 

Final Edition of the Aventador: The Ultimae

The Aventador saw its last generation come with the last naturally aspirated V12 produced by Lamborghini that was announced in July 202. It was named the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae, which intended to  combine the spectacular design and engineering elements from the Aventador S and SVJ to culminate into a definitive masterpiece that promised its drivers the pure V12 experience. It had the most liked elements from each Aventador edition like the design philosophy of the ‘S’, the 780 hp and ultimate acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and the 720 Nm of torque from the SVJs. The total tally of the Ultimae included all 350 coupés and 250 roadsters. The last of these 250 roadsters was the last Lamborghini to be produced the the Aventador badge!

Entering a Hybrid Future

While the brand has not confirmed many details of the successor to the Aventador, one thing that is confirmed is that it will come with a hybrid V-12 engine that will be assisted by an electric motor. This is in line with the commitment made by the company head Stephan Winkelmann towards building hybrid automobiles. The Huracan and the Urus are also expected to follow a similar route and come equipped with hybrid engines.
