There it is: Lamborghini Squadra Corse teased the future SCV12, their new hypercar. Featuring the most powerful V12 from Lamborghini, the SCV12 has an aerodynamic efficiency and higher downforce levels than a GT3 car. For track purposes only, the world premiere of the Lamborghini SCV12 is planned for this summer. Text: Luca W., Lamborghini © Images, video: Lamborghini ©

Power and grip

The car completed its development programme. The SCV12 is capable of exceeding 830 hp thanks to aerodynamic supercharging at high speed. The in-house Lamborghini Centro Stile designed the car, for Lamborghini reasons, obviously.

The SCV12’s front bonnet has a double air intake and a central rib directing airflow to the ram-air intake scoop located on the roof. This directs dynamic air pressure created by the car’s movement to increase static air pressure in the engine’s intake manifold. Consequently, it creates greater airflow through the engine and increasing power. See the prominent splitter at the front? It increases aerodynamic efficiency, just like the lateral flicks and vertical fins on the side sills. Looking at the rear, there is a custom-built carbon fibre rear wing.

A video? What else.

The Lamborghini SCV12 chassis

Guess what. A new fully carbon fibre chassis for a greater power-to-weight ratio for the best handling and circuit driving experience.

The lightweight chassis with rear-wheel drive incorporates a sequential six-speed gearbox as a structural element within the chassis. It allows to reduce weight and enhancing weight distribution. Pushrod rear suspension system is directly installed on the gearbox, reducing weight. Furthermore, courtesy slick Pirelly tyres deliver power on the track, fitted on magnesium rims (19″ front, 20″ rear).

The new Lamborghini SCV12 hypercar will be assembled entirely within the Lamborghini Squadra Corse factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, as a limited edition. Customers will become members of a very exclusive club: they will participate in advanced driving programmes with the technical assistance of Squadra Corse engineers. Without forgetting the special tutoring of Emanuele Pirro, five-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Lamborghini Squadra Corse Special Projects Consultant.
