The Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae.
Lamborghini’s last gasoline-only supercar
CNN reported that after the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae, Lamborghini will no longer be making cars that run purely on gasoline.
The Aventador Ultimae is a gorgeously stylized model. Its sleek and dynamic aesthetic match how smoothly it can turn tight corners and switch lanes.
It’s the most powerful Aventador ever made, with the best V12 in Lamborghini history. And it’s a long and most impressive history, as they have been using top-of-the-line 12-cylinder engines for almost 60 years.
The naturally aspirated V12 engine produces up to 769 horsepower, which is 10 more than the SVJ and 39 more than the Aventador S. It can reach max speeds of 220 mph.
Like other current Aventador models, the all-wheel drive Ultimae comes with four-wheel steering. The dynamic Lamborghini steering systems enhance both agility and stability.
The front bumper was also redesigned to provide more aerodynamic downforce for better handling.
The Ultimae is an unparalleled super sports car. Because it will be the last non-hybrid V12, the iconic model should have great value in a collection.
Numbers are limited as there will only be 350 coupe and 250 convertible versions of the Ultimae. The coupe version will start at about $500,000, and the convertible will start at just under $550,000.
The electrification of Lamborghini
By the end of 2024, every single Lamborghini model will be a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).
Lamborghini’s chief executive Stephan Winkelmann said that their other sports car model, the V10-powered Huracán, will continue as a gasoline-only model until 2024.
That doesn’t mean that Lamborghini’s won’t still have their V12 engines. It just means that those V12 Lamborghini’s will all be PHEVs.
A PHEV uses battery-powered electricity and gas for power. The hybrid drivetrain enables it to go longer distances, while the plug-in charger allows them to travel 20 to 40 miles on an all-electric charge.
Why every automaker is going hybrid
Hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs) are great ways to reduce your carbon footprint.
That plus the increasingly strict emissions regulations means a lot of car manufacturers are phasing out diesel and gas.
As more states like Minnesota start requiring all cars in the state to be more fuel-efficient and produce less pollution, hybrid and electric vehicles are the way to go. Car buyers should also consider a hybrid/EV to take advantage of potential tax credits.
