Earlier this year, Lamborghini auctioned off the last Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae. It sold for an eye-watering $1.6 million, but the seven-figure price tag included a non-fungible token – an NFT. Lamborghini has announced that they have delivered the final Ultimae.
The handover ceremony allows the car’s new owners to meet Krista Kim and Steve Aoki virtually. Kim and Aoki collaborated on the creation of the NFT, a 1:1 digital recreation of the real-life Aventador. Both also work with Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customization program to help choose exterior and interior trim.
This car displays faded color gradations, starting from a blue mixture that transitions to deep black at the rear. Owners also enjoy other perks, such as previews of upcoming limited edition models, private tours of the company museum, and invitations to local Lambo dealer activities.
Ultimae is the automaker’s last Aventador iteration. This supercar packs a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine. It produces 769 horsepower (574 kilowatts) and 531 pound-feet (720 newton-meters) of torque. The supercar weighs 3,417 pounds (1,550 kilograms), dry.
The last Aventador, which was available as a coupe or roadster, was also fast. The Coupe can reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.8 seconds. It takes just 8.7 seconds to reach 124 mph (200 kph), and has a top speed of 220.5 mph (355 kph).
Lamborghini had to restart production of the Aventador earlier this year after the cargo ship Felicity Ace caught fire and sank in the Atlantic Ocean. It engulfed around 4,000 high-end vehicles from the Volkswagen Group, including 85 Lamborghinis. The majority are Urus SUVs, but 15 are Ultimae, forcing the automaker to restart assembly lines. The company only produced 350 Ultimae coupes and 250 roadsters.
Lamborghini confirmed in 2021 that Ultimae will be showcasing the company’s last naturally aspirated V12. That’s not to say the engine disappeared from the lineup, as Lamborghini has been careful about what it says about engine death. There could be a future where the V12 lives on with a hybrid setup. Tighter emissions regulations are forcing automakers to adapt their vehicles, and that includes Lamborghini.
