It's not long before Lamborghini’s first hybrid super sports car makes its global debut and the brand transition to a hybrid era, the Italian marque is paying homage to its renowned naturally aspirated V12 with two one-off vehicles - Invencible coupé and Auténtica roadster: the two unique supercars carry the Lamborghini heritage and represent the very peak of brand’s exclusive accent on personalisation, by involving the customer from the very beginning of the project, to create models that are truly bespoke.
Exterior Details of the two LamborghiniThe two one-off cars are styled by Lamborghini Centro Stile, a division dedicated to designing premium cars for the brand. Their fully carbon-fiber bodywork is what really separates these two one-offs from "normal" Lamborghinis. The two cars carry design elements that have contributed to the company’s iconic significance as well as a sports persona inspired by the race track.
Invencible and Auténtica pay tribute to masterpieces of Lamborghini design, as the two cars draw design inspiration from previous special models - the light rear wing is inspired by the Sesto Elemento, the aerodynamic front end from the Reventón and the Veneno, and the front splitter complete with vertical struts from the Essenza SCV12. Both the one-offs share the same carbon fibre monocoque from the Aventador along with carbon fibre bodywork that has been successfully tested by Lamborghini motorsport.
The cars' unique aesthetics include the hexagon, a well-known motif of modern Lamborghini design, along with the hexagonal LED running lights (DRLs) the headlight and taillight are hexagon too. The bonnet also features hexagonal air intakes from the Sesto Elemento, and the same cues are repeated in the central triple exhaust with Inconel tips, a special high-performance steel alloy derived from the aerospace industry.
The Invencible coupé features a dominant shade of red with carbon-look elements and red 'flakes', complemented by Rosso Mars brake callipers. The door linings as well as the steering wheel have hexagonal tricolours as a tribute to the Italian flag.
The Auténtica roadster features bodywork in Grigio Titans with Matt Black details complemented by a Giallo Auge livery. The Giallo Auge colour has also been repeated on the brake callipers as well as the main aerodynamic elements of the vehicle. These include the front splitter and motorsport-derived rear wing that optimises the aerodynamic load, flanked by a pair of fins. The car’s profile is rendered unique by two domes with integrated rollbars, inspired by open-topped racers of the past.
Interior Details of the two one-off carsThe interior of both Lamborghinis features clean lines and a minimalist dashboard, complemented by hexagonal 3D-printed air vents and no instrumentation on the console, to highlight the cabin and lightness, and to focus on the enjoyment and thrill while driving. The cockpit itself is framed in carbon fibre and features dedicated graphics for each car.
The Invencible coupe comes with the same colour interior as the bodywork, which contrasts with the Rosso Alala leather and Nero Cosmus Alcantara, accompanied by personalised embroidery in Rosso Alala and Nero Ade. The dashboard features a Lamborghini logo in Rosso Efesto, the same colour used for the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel.
The Autentica roadster's open-air interior features elegant embroidery in Giallo Taurus, with contrasting Nero Ade leather upholstery, and two-tone Nero Cosmus and Grigio Octans Alcantara.
Technical Details of the Invencible and AutenticaThe Invencible and Autentica are the very last cars to be produced by Lamborghini equipped with a 12-cylinder the iconic 6.5-litre naturally aspirated engine, the cars generate 770 horsepower and 720 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm, mated to a seven-speed ISR gearbox and can reach a top speed of over 350 km/h. Both the cars also get four-wheel drive and the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering system that controls all four wheels.
A word from the Lamborghini OfficialsStephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said, “The V12 engine is one of the pillars of our history and our marque’s success, As we head towards embracing a new era of hybridization at the heart of our Cor Tauri strategy, this is the Lamborghini way of celebrating the naturally aspirated V12 with two one-off vehicles that perfectly represent our concept of excellence in personalization.”
Mitja Borkert, Head of Design at Automobili Lamborghini said, “We have created two one off cars with their own unique character, inspired by track days and the high-octane circuit environment, They are designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile, exerting maximum creativity on the V12 platform.
