In 1963, Lamborghini was launched with the intention of creating a better V12 car than fellow Italian marque Ferrari. The company’s very first production vehicle was the 350 GT, which was powered by the first-generation 3.5L engine. However, after 60 years, with countless car manufacturers making the eventual transition to hybrid and all-electric powertrains, Lamborghini becomes one of the first to bid farewell to its legendary combustion-only engines.
To mark the occasion, Lamborghini has unveiled a pair of one-off models to serve as the V12’s swan song. Paying homage to several past nameplates from the brand such as the Sesto Elemento, Reventón, and Veneno, the new vehicles — the Invencible coupe and Auténtica roadster — will also feature Aventador-inspired carbon fiber monocoque and full carbon bodywork.
Utilizing Lamborghini’s iconic design language both inside and out, the Invencible will sport a beautiful red exterior and matching interior, while the Auténtica’s matte black livery with yellow trim will also be repeated on the inside. The sendoff models will both come with a 6.5L V12 engine boasting 770hp and 531lb.ft of torque. Additionally, the powertrain will feature a seven-speed ISR gearbox, four-wheel drive, and the marque’s proprietary steering system.
Each one-off vehicle will be customized by the customer from the start to give it bespoke details. The final wide-release model to use the 6.5L V12 engine was the Aventador from last year. To learn more about the Invencible and Auténtica, head over to Lamborghini’s website.
