Two one-off cars – a roadster and a coupé – have been created to celebrate the end of the V12 supercar era, ushering in the hybrid age
With just a few weeks until the debut of Lamborghini's first hybrid super sports car, the Italian company is celebrating its iconic naturally-aspirated V12 with the Invencible coupé and Auténtica roadster: two unique, one-of-a-kind cars that showcase the brand’s DNA and epitomise Lamborghini’s exclusive focus on personalisation. Customers were involved in creating these truly bespoke models from the beginning.
The two distinctive one-of-a-kind cars were styled by Lamborghini Centro Stile to embody maximum creativity using the V12 platform, incorporating design cues that have contributed to the brand’s iconic status, as well as a sporting character inspired by the race track.
“The V12 engine is one of the pillars of our history and our marque’s success,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO. “As we head towards embracing a new era of hybridisation 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 personalisation.”
Invencible and Auténtica pay homage to Lamborghini design masterpieces such as the Sesto Elemento, the Reventón, and the Veneno. Both cars feature a carbon fiber monocoque from the Aventador, produced in Sant’Agata Bolognese, along with full carbon bodywork and design and technologies tested in motorsport.
The hexagonal motif, a well-known aspect of modern Lamborghini design, is integrated into the car’s distinctive visual elements, including the front and rear light assembly with innovative hexagonal LED running lights. The cabin is dominated by clean lines, with a minimalist dashboard, hexagonal 3D-printed air vents, and no instrumentation on the console, to emphasise the cabin's lightness and the focus on pure driving enjoyment.
The Invencible coupé features a dominant shade of red with carbon-look elements and red “flakes”, complemented by Rosso Mars brake calipers and hexagonal tricolours as a tribute to the Italian flag. The Auténtica roadster features bodywork in Grigio Titans with Matt Black details and a Giallo Auge livery, with contrasting interior embroidery and upholstery in Giallo Taurus, Nero Ade leather, and two-tone Nero Cosmus and Grigio Octans Alcantara.
“We have created two one-off cars with their own unique character, inspired by track days and the high-octane circuit environment,” said Mitja Borkert, Automobili Lamborghini Head of Design. “They are designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile, exerting maximum creativity on the V12 platform. These one-off designs draw on our unique design DNA while once again elevating our design heritage to a new level.“
The Invencible and Auténtica are the last cars to be produced by Lamborghini with a 12-cylinder 6.5 l engine and mark the transition to a hybrid era. They deliver 780 CV and 720 Nm of torque, paired with a 7-speed ISR transmission, and can reach a top speed of over 350 km/h.
The Invencible and Auténtica embody the essence of Lamborghini's commitment to personalisation and excellence, as the company moves into a new era of hybridisation at the heart of its Cor Tauri strategy.
