The new generation of carbon fiber chassis is the key reason behind achieving such high power to weight ratios.
The Lamborghini SCV12 is developed by the company's Squadra Corse's GT motorsport division.
The Lamborghini SCV12 is a hyper auto that is built for the track. The auto comes without a roll cage and still fulfills FIA prototype safety rules. A Lamborghini statement says that power is handled by a new X-trac sequential six-speed gearbox as a structural element within the chassis, combined with rear-wheel drive to ensure compactness, structural continuity, and greater torsional stiffness.
Since the announcement of the Lamborghini SCV12 racer last fall, we've been looking at numerous patent images and spy photos, but never the final production vehicle. Admittedly it does require the force-feeding effects of a ram-air intake to produce that peak output at high speed, but that still leaves it naturally aspirated - and outputting 830hp.
Other impressive technical aspects include the 1.66 PS/kg power-to-weight ratio, courtesy of a new-gen carbon fiber monocoque chassis without an internal roll cage, but also the 1,200 kg (2,645 lbs) at 250 km/h (155 mph) downforce levels, higher than those of a GT3 auto. "Essenza SCV12 is the ultimate expression of the V12 naturally aspirated engine, the symbol of our brand since 1963", says Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. All four wheels are magnesium alloy and the brakes were developed by Brembo.
For aerodynamics, Lamborghini Squadra Corse's GT racing experience managed to squeeze out 1,200 kg of downforce at 250 km/h - higher than a GT3 auto.
The Lamborghini Tecnomar is a new sports boat that offers two powerful engines to deliver a thrilling performance. The essential nature of the vehicle is underscored by the structure of the bodywork, formed by only three elements to enable quick replacement when necessary at pit stops during a race. The exclusive Verde Silvans, Grigio Lynx, Nero Aldebaran Gloss and Arancio California launch livery displays the trademark logos of long-standing Lamborghini Squadra Corse partners Pertamina, Pirelli and Roger Dubuis.
As radical as it looks, the design of the Essenza SCV12 is fully functional. Athletic training programs similar to those followed by official Lamborghini racing drivers will also be available to SCV12 owners in the Lamborghini Squadra Corse Drivers Lab, in the facility where the cars are housed. The 40 owners will be assisted by the Squadra Corse technical staff with the support of Emanuele Pirro, five-time victor of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and an excellent tutor for the customer-drivers; and Marco Mapelli, Lamborghini Squadra Corse Factory Driver. There are a few more buttons, but why would anybody need anything more on a track-oriented hypercar?
As Lamborghini's flagship track-toy, Essenza SCV12 ownership grants you access to a number of special programs which will see you able to take part in "arrive and drive" events at FIA Grade 1 circuits all around the world.
