Is Lamborghini Aventador Ultimee Faster Than SVJ In Drag Race?

This is the end of the journey of one of the most famous supercars of our generation, the Lamborghini Aventador. The swan song V12 model comes in an aptly named Aventador Ultimae, the last variant of the nameplate to come out of Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy.

The goal with Ultimae was to combine the elegance of the Aventador S with the performance bits of the SVJ. The Aventador Ultimae gets better engine output, though only slightly. That said, do the improvements to the last Aventador write home about? Apparently, they are, and it’s shown in this drag race, with permission from the UK carwow.

In a straight line contest, the Aventador SVJ faced one of 350 Ultimee units ever produced. It also has a lot of options, which makes it a very expensive car compared to the already expensive SVJ.

Performance-wise, the Ultimae produces 10 horsepower more than the SVJ. However, this increase in power is somehow offset by the fact that it comes with added weight, making the former slightly heavier than the latter. In terms of acceleration, the two cars are actually on the same footing.

For the record, both cars officially have the ability to sprint up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 2.8 seconds.

While acceleration figures put both Aventadors in the same spot, note that the Ultimae has a slightly higher top speed at 220.5 mph (355 km/h). However, that is not yet conclusive, so we turn to the results of the drag race.

We’re not going to spoil the results of the standing and rolling start races, but as a hint, Ultimae is always behind the SVJ at launch. Are the extra horses enough for Ultimae to catch up with SVJ and beat him in the line? Will the SVJ’s massive wings affect the outcome of this race?
