Do not go gentle into that good night…Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
– Dylan Thomas
While there is nothing gentle about a naturally-aspirated V12 howling at full-send, rage might just adequately describe the vehicular intentions of Lamborghini with their final ‘pure’ Aventador hypercar, the naturally-aspirated V-12 Ultimae. With only 350 Coupes and 250 Roadsters (not including the 15 that rest at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean after the sinking of the Felicity Ace transport ship) the rarity of limited production alone assures the Ultimae of a certain distinction. When one considers the increased horsepower (769) and lightened structure of the Ultimae vs the ‘regular’ Aventador, well…nothing exceeds like excess. With a 2.8 second 0-62 mph time, an 8.7 0-124 mph time and a top speed in excess of 220 mph, excess has never sounded (or felt) so good!
We recently had the opportunity to work with a client and their 1 of 250 Ultimae Roadster, employing a variety of services to enhance & preserve this iconic Lamborghini. Beginning with ESOTERIC Ultimate New Car Prep package, the Paint Protection Film was optioned to Full Vehicle Coverage. In addition to Paint Correction, Ceramic Coating application on the body, windshield & wheels are included in the package as well. In the case of the Ultimae, the INFINITE WARRANTIED coating was selected, a coating that carries a 5-year warranty if properly self-maintained, with ESOTERIC maintaining the car bi-annually as well.
After the initial inspection and documentation, the Ultimae was washed, mechanically and chemically decontaminated and then pulled into the studio where the meticulous correction and enhancement of the factory paintwork was completed.
In addition to the paint, the carbon-fiber areas were also polished to bring out the clarity and depth of the darker pieces.
After the correction is complete, a thorough cleaning and sanitizing of ALL areas ensure that the Paint Protection Film has the optimal foundation prior to installation.
Large panels receive a single custom-fit section of film, providing the most complete coverage and effectiveness. The edges are wrapped, tucked and custom fit in a manner which makes the final product nearly undetectable!
‘Full Coverage’ means FULL COVERAGE!
With all services complete, the Ultimae brightens up even a cloudy Central, OH day!
LIke many cars of this type, the Ultimae has a variety of driving modes: Strada, Sport, Corsa and one (aptly?) named ‘Ego’ which you can personalize with your own preferred driving configuration & options. Which one would you choose exiting the parking lot on that first drive with your Ultimae now fully protected from road debris?
