Last Lamborghini V12 presented before the hybrid era

The Lamborghini Invencible Coupé and the Autentica Cabriolet bid farewell to the brand’s legendary V12 engine before adopting hybrid propulsion.

Italian supercar company Lamborghini presented its last two vehicles with V12 engines without hybrid drive – the Invincible coupe and Authentic convertible.

Based on the Aventador, the Invencible and Autentica – which translates from Italian to Invincible and Authentic – will be limited to just one example each and will mark a special farewell to Lamborghini’s legendary 6.5-litre V12 engine before it becomes a hybrid- gets an electrical boost.

As previously reported, the successor to the Lamborghini Aventador will still be powered by a V12 engine, but with hybrid technology to meet Europe’s stricter emissions regulations.

According to Lamborghini, the Invencible and Autentica pay homage to the Italian company’s past special edition models by incorporating design cues from the bespoke creations.

The supercar’s sharp, angled nose is reminiscent of the Reventón (which influenced the design of the Aventador), while the air intakes in the aerodynamic body are inspired by the 2013 Veneno concept.

Lamborghini claims that the hood air intakes closely follow the shape of the Sesto Elemento, which also served as inspiration for the Invecible’s rear wing design.

Both individual models feature a unique hexagonal LED signature in their headlights and taillights, which carries over to the triangular layout of the exhaust design.

Inside, the Aventador’s interior has been radically redesigned, now featuring a flatter center console that houses all of the supercar’s controls.

Lamborghini also removed all buttons and controls from the Invencible and Autentica’s steering wheels to give the pair a driver-focused, back-to-basics look.

The color pairings from the exterior carry over to the cabin, with black and red for the Invencible and gray and yellow for the Autentica.

Lamborghini claims the 6.5-litre V12 engine in both supercars produces up to 574kW and 720Nm, which is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed gearbox. Rear-wheel steering is also installed as standard.

Although no price has been given for either car, both supercars are expected to cost more than the Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae, which starts at almost €460,000 (AU$716,000) in Italy.

Lamborghini has previously confirmed that the new V12 hybrid supercar would be unveiled before the end of March 2023, with patent images showing that the flagship model will build on certain design cues from its Aventador predecessor.
