The successor to the Lamborghini Aventador has been tested, a car that will launch a new V-12 engine with plug-in hybrid technology.
This means that the Aventador is the last V-12 Lamborghini sens electroification, and the last of the Aventadors is a special model known as the Aventador Ultimae.
The Aventador Ultimae was unveiled last summer, in both coupe and convertible form. The last coupe example is still available, although you will probably have to pay a lot more than MSRP for it.
Lamborghini is putting the car up for auction with a non-fungible token called Lamborghini Ultimate. Apparently NFT will offer its owner various benefits such as online access to future special edition of Lamborghini, a private tour of the Lamborghini Museum and a virtual meeting with artists Steve Aoki and Krista Kim, who collaborated and helped design the NFT.

Aoki, a DJ, was tasked with creating an exclusive soundtrack for NFT, while Kim, a digital artist, was tasked with creating visuals for it.
“The Lamborghini and NFT communities go hand in hand, because we share a lot of values,” Lamborghini CEO Stefan Winkelman said in a statement. “We’re both looking for young-inspired innovators, unexpected projects and technological solutions.”
The car and related NFT will be sold at an RM Sotheby’s auction on April 19.
Powered by Aventador Ultimae Lamborghini’s well-known 6.5-liter V-12, this application is tuned by changing the timing of the valve to deliver 769 hp and 531 pound-feet of torque. The maximum power of any Aventador road car reaches 8,500 rpm. Note that although Lamborghini is moving towards electrified powertrains, and eventually full-electric powertrains, the automaker has not ruled out offering some track-only vehicles powered by internal-combustion engines only down the road. We’ve already seen it with things like the 2020 Assange SCV12.
