Automobili Lamborghini‘s final Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae created for Swiss owner, is the left-hand drive Aventador Ultimae Roadster that pays homage to the one-off Miura Roadster.
The body color of this special Lamborghini Ad Personam project comes in a specially created color Azzuro Flake that replicates the original special color of the Miura. The rocker cover is in Grigio Liqueo with a Nero Aldebaran pinstripe, extending from front to rear of the Aventador and complementing the visible carbon fiber of the sill, front splitter and rear diffuser. The roadster’s roof and rear engine cover are in shiny, black-painted carbon fiber. Black air intakes and additional Nero Aldebaran livery on the Aventador’s hood emulate the Miura’s black-painted hood scoop; the tailpipes are matt black; and the Ultimae’s rims in shiny silver with black brake calipers reflect the Miura’s original silver rims.
Inside, the leather seat style, and the trim including dashboard and center console are inspired by the Miura Roadster, finished in Bianco Leda leather with complementary Nero Aldebaran around the headrests. A minimalist dashboard in Nero Ade Alcantara with Bianco Leda stitching features a unique embroidered Miura badge, with the same Miura badge applied to the side rocker denoting the inspiration for this Aventador Ultimae.
The Miura P400 Roadster that has inspired the very last V12 Aventador, was a unique show car unveiled at the Carrozzeria Bertone stand at Brussels Motor Show in April 1968. The Roadster was painted in a very shiny, Lamè Sky Blue Acrilico paint, on Pelle Bianco interior paired with red carpet. With a low roofline, large side air intakes and a sharply-raked windscreen and all other glass removed, the one-off car has never entered production. After also being shown at the 1968 Geneva Motor Show the show car, after being test-driven in Sant’Agata Bolognese, returned to Bertone and was sold to the International Lead and Zinc Research Organization (ILZRO) who replaced every possible component with zinc or lead and repainted in olive green with green interior. It was used as a demonstration show car and renamed ZN 75.
After different owners all over the world, the ZN 75 was returned to its original Roadster configuration in 2008. Fully restored to its original Brussels motor show condition, it was shown at the Pebble Beach concours d’élegance in 2008 where it finished second in the Lamborghini class.
