Lamborghini history is made and celebrated with the same car.
Lamborghini has announced that the final Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae, and thus the final Aventador and final “pure” naturally aspirated V12-powered Lamborghini has rolled off the assembly line and is destined for the garage of a Swiss collector. However, if it’s even possible, this final Aventador has even more special attributes than just those. It’s an Aventador Ultimae Roadster, and it pays homage to a very specific and intriguing piece of early Lamborghini history.
The car features a very specific and bespoke configuration, with an “Azzuro Flake” body color, accented by Grigio Liqueo and Nero Aldebaran, with an interior finished in Bianco Leda leather accented by Nero Aldebaran. The details of this color scheme are tailored to match a very special Lamborghini one-off, the Miura Roadster from 1968. The car, originally unveiled at the Carrozzeria Bertone stand at the Brussels Motor Show, was a roofless version of the Miura that was specifically designed and engineered to deliver performance and drivability in the open air. The car was then in the possession of the International Lead and Zinc Research Organization, where it was renamed the ZN 75 and showed the rust-protecting ability of zinc, which is still used in cars today. Eventually, the car was restored to its original look in 2008, and has served as the inspiration for the final Aventador and final pure V12 Lamborghini.
