Track-only SV12 gets Lamborghini's most powerful V12 to date
Lamborghini SCV12, Squadra Corse's track-only hypercar, has now finished its development program and is all set to burn the tracks for its world premiere.
Currently fitted with the most powerful V12 naturally aspirated engine from Lamborghini, the Lamborghini Centro Stile-designed SCV12 can exceed 830 horsepower due to its supercharging at high speeds.
Lamaborghini Squadra Corse, which is is a specialist team within Lamborghini’s R&D department dedicated to everything about motorsports, now uses its its GT expertise to increase the SCV12's aerodynamic efficiency and its downforce levels at higher levels compared to a GT3.
It now has a greater airflow through the engine and increasing power, thanks to the double air intake and central rib located in its front bonnet. This bonnet directs airflow to the ram-air intake scoop on the roof, which results to an increased static air pressure in the engine's intake manifold.
To make its aerodynamics and clear track intent more efficient than ever, the vehicle is fitted with a prominent splitter at the front, lateral flicks and vertical fins on the side sills, and a custom-built carbon fiber rear wing at the rear.
The SCV12 also includes a new fully-carbon fiber chassis that gives greater power-to-weight ratio, great handling, and the best circuit driving experience for drivers.
Its power is delivered on the track using Pirelli 19"-20" tires fitted on magnesium rims. The lightweight chassis, which comes with rear-wheel drive, reduces weight and enhances weight distribution via its sequential six-speed gearbox as a structural element within the chassis.
The SCV12 will be completely assembled inside the Lamborghini Squadra Corse factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese. It will come in limited edition only, and lucky owners will become members of an exclusive club that allows them to participate in advanced driving programs at some of the world’s most prestigious circuits. This will be under the technical assistance of Squadra Corse engineers and the special tutoring of Emanuele Pirro, five-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Lamborghini Squadra Corse Special Projects Consultant.
