Six months after re-starting production to replace cars lost on the Felicity Ace, Lamborghini Aventador production has once again come to an end. It closes an 11-year era for the car, Lamborghini's V-12 anchor and the direct successor to the brand's famous lineage of long-lived supercars that began with the Miura in 1966.
In total, Lamborghini delivered some 11,465 over the Aventador's run. Lamborghini says that number not only more than doubles the 5,000-car production run of the car's Murcielago predecessor, it means that more Aventadors have been sold than all of the company's other V-12 models combined. For comparison, the company has sold more than 20,000 Huracans over the lifetime of its V-10 powered junior supercar.
Aventador production had already finished when 15 LP780-4 Ultimae variants were lost with the massive Felicity Ace cargo ship when it sunk in the Atlantic on March 1st. The company announced plans to fire production back up later that month, completing the final orders of what was planned to be the ultimate and final form of the car. The last one off the line was finished in a unique light blue color created for the Swiss market by the brand's Ad Personam customization program.
As Lamborghini plans to transition to a hybrid-only lineup by 2024, these Aventadors represent the end of the line for an un-electrified flagship Lamborghini. Its successor, spied for the first time in December of last year, is expected to combine some form of V-12 power with some sort of electric assistance.
