56 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.

I feel like we should have a section in the site just for track cars that are not racing in any class like This/Vulcan/the whole Ferrari XX series/P1 GTR/Zonda R
Like a category in "Vehicles" named "race cars" that expands into different companies and there we could put some videos and actually talk about them

Welp good news
The edits were wrong because the speed of the video was a bit up

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

I wonder how much they can bring the weight down.

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.
