After 11 years in production, the last Lamborghini Aventador that will ever be made has finally rolled off the production line.
An LP 780-4 Ultimae Roadster will go down in the history books as the last naturally aspirated V12 car made by the company.
Destined for a customer in Switzerland, the car wears a unique light blue ‘Ad Personam’ color from Lambo’s bespoke customization division.
First unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the Aventador has since been through eight iterations.
Although it has been offered in both coupe and convertible forms, and in varying states of tune, the basic recipe has always remained the same.
That, of course, is a glorious mid-mounted 6.5-liter V12 that drives all four wheels through a seven-speed paddle-shift transmission.
At the time of its launch, it was described as “a jump of two generations in terms of design and technology” by Lambo CEO Stephan Winkelmann.
It has since gone on to become the most produced V12 flagship in Lamborghini’s history.
With 11,465 examples delivered to customers, it has eclipsed the total production of all prior V12 Lambos combined.

In its fifth year of production alone, 5000 were built.
That’s a lot of cars when compared to the Murciélago, as there were just 5000 made in its entire production run.
The 10,000th example of the Aventador meanwhile, rolled off the line in September 2020.
Speaking of it now, Winkelmann believes the Aventador will always have a timeless appeal – not least as the brand’s final naturally aspirated V12 model.
“The V12 engine has been part of Lamborghini’s heritage since the company’s earliest days; the beating heart of models from Miura to Diablo, Countach to Murciélago,” Winkelmann said.
“The Aventador captured Lamborghini’s competencies in design and engineering when it debuted in 2011, with Lamborghini values that are always at the centre of company and product impetus: pure, futuristic design; benchmarking performance; and addressing technical challenges with innovation to produce the most emotive, class-leading super sports cars.
“These principles are the very essence of the Lamborghini Aventador, and assure its timeless appeal.”
