The latest Lamborghini with a naturally aspirated V12 engine: a tribute to power

Automobili Lamborghini launches the Aventador LP 780-4 Latest: the model that pays homage to the iconic super sports car with a V12 combustion engine.

The Lamborghini V12 will have a long life, but to comply with current and future regulations in terms of carbon dioxide emissions, the Casa del Toro will have to add an electric unit to it.

Power and performance

The elegant lines of the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae perfectly match the performance of this final version. The 6.5-liter “Longitudinal Rear” (LP) twelve-cylinder engine unleashes 780 CV: 40hp more than the Aventador S and 10hp more than the SVJ on its permanent all-wheel drive.

The LP 780-4 Ultimae is a tribute to the instinctive character, power and performance resulting from ten years of evolution of Lamborghini’s Aventador: the know-how of the SVJ powertrain that allowed it to set the record on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in July 2018, the sporty technical innovations and the luxury of the S version, the purity of the original Aventador concept. It’s the grand finale to the traditional V12 combustion engine and the ultimate Aventador, in every sense.

The single monocoque in fiber carbon fiber of the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae, light and extremely stiff, and the extensive use of carbon fiber throughout the body guarantee a dry weight of only 1550 kg.

The Coupé version, which weighs 25 kg less than the Aventador S, has the same weight-to-power ratio as the SVJ (1.98 kg / hp), acceleration from 0 to 100 in 2.8 seconds and a maximum speed of 355 km / h, with 720 Nm of torque at a maximum of 6750 rpm plus a variable valve timing (VVT) and variable geometry intake system (VIS) calibrated for an optimized torque curve. The CCB braking system goes from 100 km / h to total stop in just 30 m.

The permanent all-wheel drive, thanks to the rear steering system, it is calibrated to obtain a higher torque on the rear axle: by releasing the accelerator, less torque is transferred to the front axle for a sporty but safe driving.

The systems are managed by Lamborghini Dinamica Active Vehicle (LDVA), which processes precise information in real time on the movement of the bodywork through sensors, thus defining the best response of all active systems in order to best adapt the vehicle dynamics in all conditions.

The LP 780-4’s splitter and front “vent” direct additional airflow to optimize aerodynamic efficiency and engine and radiator cooling for cutting-edge aerodynamic performance.

The rear wing of the active aerodynamic system is adjustable in three positions: it can remain closed or be adjusted to provide “maximum performance” or “maximum maneuverability”, based on the speed and driving mode selected, thus optimizing the overall balance of the car and working together to the vortex generators inserted on the front and rear of the aerodynamic flat bottom, which amplify the air flow to the maximum and facilitate the cooling of the brakes. Lamborghini’s 7-speed ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) gearbox guarantees robotic shifting in just 50 milliseconds.

The driving modes of the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae allow the driver to select not only the STRADA, SPORT and CORSA dynamic options, but also to choose their own parameters in EGO mode for an optimal configuration of the Lamborghini Active Suspension (LMS), traction controls (engine, gearbox and all-wheel drive) and steering system.
