Lamborghini has unveiled the Essenza SCV12, a track-only hypercar with the most powerful naturally aspirated V12 engine ever developed by Lamborghini.
Limited to just 40 units, the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 delivers over 819hp. Exhaust pipes designed by Capristo reduce the back pressure and emphasise the unique sound of the engine.
Meanwhile, an X-trac sequential 6-speed gearbox – incorporated as a structural element within the chassis – sends power to the rear wheels. Lamborghini claims the new gearbox has heightened the compactness, structural continuity, and torsional stiffness of the chassis.
SPEAKING OF WHICH…
The new-generation carbon fibre monocoque chassis of the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 was designed to meet FIA prototype safety rules.
Maximum agility and stability on track is aided by a push-rod rear suspension that’s installed directly on the gearbox. Slick Pirelli tires mounted on magnesium rims (19” front, 20” rear), frame brake discs and callipers developed by Brembo Motorsport.
The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 develops 1200kg of downforce at 250km/h – more than a GT3 racecar – thanks to aerodynamic honing from Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s GT racing experience.
A double air intake on the front hood follows from the Huracan racing cars, and separates hot air coming from the radiator from the cold air directed into the roof airscoop. The aerodynamic package is completed by the large adjustable double-profile rear wing.
A UNIQUE OWNERSHIP EXPERIENCE
Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 customers will become part of an exclusive club that will give them access to special programmes to drive their hypercar on the most prestigious circuits in the world.
The program includes storage service in a new hangar built in Sant’Agata, wherein each car will have a personalised garage and dedicated services. Webcams will allow customers to monitor their cars 24 hours a day using an app.
An athletic training programme similar to those followed by the official Lamborghini racing drivers will also be offered to customers.
The track calendar will start in 2021 with “arrive and drive” events held at numerous FIA Grade 1 homologated circuits.
