32 The Lamborghini SCV12 - new track-only hypercar revealed

Cover for The Lamborghini SCV12 - new track-only hypercar revealed

Lamborghini have unveiled brand new track-only hyper car - Lamborghini SCV12.

The car is basically another variation of Lamborghini Aventador, with the most powerful (830 horsepower) V12 ever made by Lamborghini. Unlike Sian, SCV12 has no hybrid systems. A sequential transmission is connected to the engine.

Its spoilers are, theoretically, producing more downforce than the aerodynamic package of a GT3 racing car. Suspension is also similar to GT3 cars, just like the McLaren Senna GTR.

According to rumors, Lamborghini is planning to join the new Le Mans category, the "Le Mans Hypercar" with the SCV12.

Yeah i think you're right it's probably gonna be the Sian Roadster. I'm thinking that they'll reveal the SCV12 later sometime after they smash the Nurb record?

I'd be surprised if they don't, to highlight how awesome the SCV12 is because it will do a low 6:30 lap over the full 20.8 km course. Just wait and see..

Well the Sian Roadster looked a million dollars(or is that 3m lol) in Lamborghini's unveil but they didn't spend enough time focussing on it. What i want to see is the SCV12 unveil, complete with Nurb lap. That is gonna be epic!

Can't wait!
I am calling it now

As much as I'd like to see that the SCV12 would need to be around 1000kg and that's not the case. Somewhere around 6:30 is the most likely scenario which would be awesome for a supercar probably around 1400 kg.

Here's the video from Lamborghini SQ's official channel
See the difference?

I wonder how much they can bring the weight down.

If this is what it sounds like then it's gonna be insane..

I don't know what "Le Mans hypercar" class means (what are the regulations and limitations) but this reminds me of GT1 cars. Stuff like the Lamborghini Murcielago GT1, back in the days when GT3 cars where only playing second fiddle to the superior "big GT" class.

And more than a few of those GT1 cars had V12 engines.

According to some magazines it has got hybrid system but the most of them say it hasn't got. I think it more likely hasn't got because a small electric motor and the batteries just add weight but do not increase the performance very well.
