The Lamborghini Aventador has officially sold out, according to Lamborghini, with the last Aventador Ultimae allocations accounted for. This all comes in a report on a record nine months of sales for Lamborghini in the first three quarters of 2021.
In a release detailing the marque’s success, CEO Stephen Winkelman emphasised the path to hybridisation and electrification the marque is on but that “in the meantime, we continue to celebrate the aspirated Lamborghini engine”.
“Deliveries started this summer of the motorsport-inspired Huracan STO while two limited edition V12s, the ‘last’ Aventador Ultimae and Countach LPI 800-4 announced this summer are already sold out, with a circa 12-month lead-time on our broader product range.”
Once the last car comes off the line, it will mark around 11 years of production with over 11,000 examples produced in that time. For context, the Aventador’s predecessor, the Murcielago, numbered just under 4,000 units after a nine-year production run concluding in 2010. This makes the Aventador Lamborghini’s most successful V12 halo model by far. Though around 1,000 cars left the factory gates every year, 2017 and 2018 were the most successful for the Aventador, shifting over 1,200 examples in those years.
It’s all but certain that the Aventador Ultimae will be the very last V12 Lamborghini without hybrid assistance of any sort. The Aventador’s successor, expected to be revealed at the latest in March 2023, is expected to be electrically augmented by a more substantial system than the supercapacitors the Sian and Countach use.
There’s also the mystery fourth Lamborghini model on the way “within the decade” that will be the marque’s first all-electric vehicle. What we can be sure of, for now, is that the V12 will live on in some form or another. Praise be.
