The Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae will soon be on its way to Dodo but to send it in style, the automaker has launched the Ultimae variant in mid-2021. Created as the ultimate swan song of the iconic supercar, Ultimai is quite spectacular and has recently been tested by Carfection.
While building the Ultimai, Lamborghini decided to build a car that would be more track-focused than the SVJ and complete with foreign wings and splitter. Instead, it decided to make the final version of the Aventador a middle ground between S and SVJ.

This philosophy is most evident in the exterior design of the vehicle which borrows material from S and SVJ. For example, the front fascia is essentially identical to the S but includes an active splitter and intake flap. Meanwhile, the back of the car has some SVJ-inspired components, the most notable of which are dual exhaust pipes and carbon fiber diffusers.
Below the sleek bodywork is the familiar 6.5-liter naturally-aspired V12 from Lamborghini but upgraded to 870 hp and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque at 8,700 rpm. This gives Ultimae 39 hp more than regular S and 10 hp more than SVJ It also weighs less than S but slightly heavier than SVJ, although the added grant means its power-to-weight ratio is the same as SVJ’s.
Carfection’s Harry Catchpole had the opportunity to drive on some of the most beautiful roads, and in a world where V12-powered performance cars are becoming increasingly rare, it’s important to celebrate when cars are around.
