The last Lamborghini Aventador rolled out of the assembly line in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, is officially ending the era. The final Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimate Roadster rolled out in the unique light blue Ad Personam color and will be heading to the Swiss market. The iconic naturally aspirated V12 supercar was one of the Lamborghini’s most successful vehicles and sold more than its last V12 offerings combined. In its 11-year run, the Italian sold 11,465 units, with the company delivering the first 5,000 units in production’s fifth year. The ten thousand Aventador was delivered in September 2020.
Unveiled at Geneva Motor Show in 2011 as the Aventador LP 700-4, the coupe arrived with some massive-sized performance figures from its 6.5 litres V12 motor. The engine developed 690bhp and 690Nm of peak torque in its original avatar, propelling the car from 0-100kmph in 2.9 seconds and 350kmph at the top speed. The engine was developed by Lamborghini in-house with a 60-degree angle bank between the cylinders. Over the last decade, the Aventador would go on to define the last of the ICE supercar era while spawning a host of special and limited editions.
The Lamborghini Aventador originated over ten one-off and limited editions, including the SVJ, Centenario, Veneno, Sian FKP 37, and the most recent Countach LPI 800-4. It also set some track records like SVJ, achieving a Nurburging Nordschleife record for the time with a lap of 6 minutes and 44.97 seconds. With its scissor doors and timeless design, the Lamborghini Aventador has frequently graced the bedroom walls while regularly featuring on celluloid and in video games.
The departure of the Lamborghini Aventador will make way for the new supercar from the Italian automaker. The successor is expected to be a new V12 offering, albeit with a hybrid engine. At the end of the Lamborghini Aventador’s production, the new offering is imminent, with an excellent global debut expected towards the year’s end.
