An ode to the Aventador

by Dorothy M. Drewry

Six years after the launch of the Lamborghini Aventador in 2011, the Italian supercar manufacturer has launched a model dubbed the Aventador S. Continuing the long tradition of historic S models, the V12 engine car. of this Lamborghini offers a sporty driving experience that combines state-of-the-art racing with an all-Italian 740 hp under the hood. Car writers, such as those who posts in wapcar.my,  have called it “The Ultimate Scary Supercar”. 

So what happens when you add 40 hp to the monster sculpted in this corner and take 25 kg off the car? You get the LP 780-4 Ultimae, which launched in India last month and is by no means a particularly surprising car. With almost 30 iterations in the last 11 years, Lamborghini has reinvented the platform more than many other manufacturers have dared to try. 

In a decade we’ve seen everything from flat upgrades to racing SVJs, original dance moves with hybrid systems on the Sian, and even a return to the LPI 800-4 Countach. 

The essence of this car is the pure, naturally aspirated V12 experience – the latest chapter in a story that began 60 years ago in a bustling workshop in Sant’Agata Bolognese, northern Italy. ‘IDEA. 

Most people know that the company was born out of the famous feud between two car manufacturers Ferrucio Lamborghini and Enzo Ferrari. What few people know is that Ferrucio was so driven by the desire to build the world’s greatest sports car that he not only hired Ferrari’s genius automotive engineer, Giotto Bizzarrini, to build his V12. but there are also some accounts claiming that he paid the engineer’s rival old car a bonus for every horsepower he could squeeze out of Ferrari’s competing V12 “Tipo”. The result was a design so powerful that it moved into the 21st century. This classic V12 engine found its way to Miuras, Diablos and  Murciélagos soon after Volkswagen took over the company in 1998. 

When the Aventador appeared On the market in the early 2010s with the new L539 engine, the first being the first complete redesign of the V12 in decades, its stealth jet aesthetic made the  Murcielago out of Life becomes boring by comparison. 

According to Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkleman, the team behind the project reversed their usual supercar priorities by opting for top-speed handling, and still produced a capable rocket rolling at a speed of 350 km/h. This group of bold Italians and Germans continued their innovations in a number of iterations that followed, including the super-fast SuperVeloce LP 750-4 and the race-eaten SVJ, which broke Nürburgring’s Nürburgring record Porsche in 2018.

The Ultimae continues the long tradition of these iconic cars, moving a little closer to the edge. For a car without an electric motor or forced induction, the spec sheet. Along with the generous carbon fiber trim, the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva (LDVA) system and rear-wheel drive system continue Lamborghini’s philosophy of prioritizing handling and speed. The 6.5L V12, in its naturally aspirated form, sounds absolutely pristine – a raucous, theatrical showcase of one of the most compelling engines ever created. The Ultimae’s punching engine through the rear panels is based on old automotive engineering. 

Sadly, this will be the engine’s last salute, as Lamborghini joins a long list of automakers phasing out the internal combustion engine in favor of hybrid and battery-electric engines in response to meet harsh new emissions standards around the world. 

Lamborghini’s foray into the world of electric motors began in September 2019 when the company unveiled the Sián FKP 37, the first supercar to be powered by a combination of a V12 engine and a hybrid supercapacitor instead of a battery. conventional and heavy lithium-ion. . The Sián remains Lamborghini’s most powerful production car. For  Sharad Agarwal, director of Lamborghini India, the combination of his company’s past and future is both exciting and emotional, as his six successful years with Lamborghini coincided with the Aventador’s final farewell.

At Ultimae’s launch event in New Delhi last month, Agarwal said with pride that Lamborghini Aventador became the focus when it was launched. At this show, a lot of car models were displayed. So it was a golden chance for Aventador to attract potential customers. And it enabled Agarwal’s team to show their brilliant records in terms of innovation, design as well as technology development. Agarwal added with a smile that Aventador was a dream car of many individuals, who expected them to produce a better car model especially to improve the new car’s performance and driving experience, compared with their predecessors. Realizing such a desire, Agarwal continued explaining that they decided to make the first step by celebrating the internal combustion engine between 2021 and 2022, which they had finished via the launch of the latest Aventador. It was estimated that by 2024, Agarwal and his colleagues would push the entire range to be hybridized. What’s more, in the latter half of these 10 years, the team would introduce an all-electric platform as their fourth car model.

Whereas, their view of electrification will be different a lot from what we have seen. They do not want to be only the pioneer in such a segment,  instead, they want to be the best. They take the time to evaluate all the technology available to us for the reason that they are determined to stay true to who they are. Wonderful performance and driving dynamics are their top priority because that’s what the customers want and expect. 

These are ambitious milestones that Bologna teams will have to meet and be able to overcome, given Lamborghini’s obsession with everything superlative. Thankfully, the company seems to have done more than just innovate – its entrepreneurial efforts over the past few years have also worked wonders, especially with successful models like super SUVs. CEO Stephan Winkelmann goes so far as to credit Urus with doubling the company’s numbers, a feat unmatched elsewhere in the supercar industry, while also providing  financial stability. necessary to massively expand Lamborghini development and test production facilities in northern Italy.

Such a trend is becoming stronger in India, where Lamborghini’s driving conditions and strong cultural influence have attracted countless enthusiastic buyers,  from local business magnates to Indian celebrities. Bollywood. Looking back at our segment history, said Agarwal, the ultra-luxury segment has faced many challenges in India, be it infrastructure, policies, taxes, etc. However, they have seen huge potential in India,  especially during the expansion beyond India’s tier 1 cities. Today they could see a Lamborghini coming straight from the country. Jalandhar, Amritsar, Kanpur, Lucknow, Ajmer, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Bhopal, Indore, and even have clients in Sri Lanka and Daman although most of our clients are third or third-generation entrepreneurs. They also organize events and programs focused on delivering the driving experience to first-generation entrepreneurs and women. 

For the Aventador Ultimae, it offers the perfect balance of power, responsiveness and tactile precision. For those lucky enough to own one, they hope they’ll continue to downgrade – each roaring roar the power of a swan, echoing through six decades of pure automotive passion, Agarwal said.
