Lamborghini Essenza SCV12, Made For The Track

Lamborghini has just revealed the impressive Essenza SCV12, its newest Limited Edition track-only Hypercar. This rendition of the Raging Bull’s inspired race cars will be a regular fixture of the customer racing one-make series by Lamborghini.

The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 represents a direct descendant of the Miura Jota and Diablo GTR. As a made-for-track super duper, the Essenza SCV12 is fitted with the most powerful V12 naturally aspirated engine, delivering

830 hp. This is enabled by an amazing power-to-weight ratio of 1.66 hp/kg. A new-generation carbon fiber monocoque chassis without internal rollcage is another contributing factor to the SCV12’s overall lightweight. Power is handled by a new X-trac sequential six-speed gearbox.

To ensure maximum agility and stability on even the most demanding tracks, kinematic solutions inspired by racing prototypes have been adopted, such as the push-rod rear suspension installed directly on the gearbox. The panorama is completed by specific slick Pirelli tyres mounted on magnesium rims (19” front, 20” rear), which frame the brake discs and calipers developed by Brembo.

The aerodynamics has high levels of efficiency and higher downforce levels than a GT3 car, with a value of 1,200 kg at 250 km/h. The front hood has a double air intake with a central rib, typical of the Huracán racing cars. It also features a splitter and two lateral elements. On the sides, the flows for engine and gearbox cooling have been optimized through the use of vertical fins situated on the side sills. From the rear, the SCV12 has a large adjustable double-profile rear wing.

The car’s livery is decked with exclusive Verde Silvans, Grigio Linx, Nero Aldebaran Gloss and ArancioCalifornia, as well as partners’ logos like Pertamina, Pirelli and Roger Dubuis. Other worthy exterior highlights are the unique headlights, roof airscoop and air vents. In fact, the large rear wing, side fins and front splitter are elements taken from the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and GT3 EVO.

The SCV12’s interior is designed for one purpose only: drive as fast as you can. It features a steering (inspired by F1 race cars), instrument panel and dashboard, all supported by an asymmetrical carbon “Y”, a load-bearing and stylistic element that frames the cockpit. This setup is designed to put the driver at the center of an absolute driving experience.

In addition, the specific FIA homologated OMP seat with carbon shell embraces the driver to ensure comfort, safety and stability.

Customer Racing program

The Esszenza SCV12 will be part of customer racing programs by Lamborghini. The program includes storage service in a new hangar built in Lambo headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese for the SCV12 club. Each car will have a personalized garage and dedicated services.

The track calendar will start in 2021 with “arrive and drive” events held at numerous FIA Grade 1 homologated circuits. Assistance will be provided by the Squadra Corse technical staff with the support of Emanuele Pirro, five-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and Marco Mapelli, Lambo’s factory driver.
