Lamborghini shows the final appearance of its new circuit hypercar
With 830 horsepower, it boasts to equip the most powerful V12 ever made by the brand
Its buyers will be able to drive it on circuits around the world with the logistical support of the brand
The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 is a circuit car created by the competition department of the Sant’Agata Bolognese firm and the Lamborghini Centro Stile design center. At 830 horsepower, it boasts the most powerful V12 engine ever created by the brand. Only 40 units will be manufactured. Its price has not been confirmed.
The Essenza SCV12 completed its testing program at the Paul Ricard circuit and is now hitting the circuits. Lamborghini offers its owners the opportunity to enjoy its brand new hypercar in a program of private days on the circuit, which includes the storage of each unit in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The cars will be monitored by security cameras that the owners can consult at any time.
LAMBORGHINI ESSENZA SCV12: EXTERIOR
Lamborghini has proclaimed that the Essenza SCV12 outperforms the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 in aerodynamic efficiency and cornering. Of course, this car does not obey any regulation, as it is nothing more and nothing less than a circuit toy.
Its monocoque is made of carbon fiber and has been created specifically for this model, while its aerodynamics bear the signature of the Lamborghini Squadra Corse and its experience in the world of competition.
Immediately striking is its prominent rear spoiler, which is adjustable and dual-profile, with more central support points than on the Hurricane GT3 and curved side endplates.
The two exhaust outlets are at the height of what could be a non-existent license plate, which clears the diffuser to generate the maximum possible downforce. The rear suspension is of the push-rod type and is mounted directly on the gearbox.
The front hood has a double air inlet with a central outlet, as in the Hurricane GT3. The rims are 19 inches in the front and 20 in the rear, in both cases magnesium and with specific marking tires designed by Pirelli.
LAMBORGHINI ESSENZA SCV12: INTERIOR
The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 sports an interior inspired by competition, as it could not be otherwise. Any comfort disappears and the cabin is reduced to a Alcantara-topped carbon fiber steering wheel with multiple buttons and dials to control vehicle parameters. The central tunnel also has a dozen controls to manage the vehicle. The only comfort of the vehicle is an air conditioning system.
LAMBORGHINI ESSENZA SCV12: MECHANICAL
The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 equips a V12 atmospheric engine that delivers 830 horsepower to the rear axle. It is the most powerful V12 ever made by the house of Sant’Agata Bolognese.
The propeller is associated with a six-speed sequential gearbox derived from the one that equips the Hurricane Super Trophy Evo. It is mounted on the rear axle and is a structural part of the chassis.
Lamborghini has yet to report SCV12 acceleration and top speed figures.
It has confirmed that the engine uses dynamic force feeding, which slightly improves the air intake in the cylinders to increase its performance. Even in the layman’s view it is evident by the air intake above the passenger compartment.
LAMBORGHINI ESSENZA SCV12: PRICES
The price of the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 has not yet been confirmed. Only 40 units will be manufactured. Those who purchase one will have access to an advanced driving program to learn how to tame their Essenza SCV12 on the track.
