Italian hypercar brand Lamborghini has revealed its extreme-performance Essenza SCV-12 - a limited-edition track car.
Like most of these outrageous hypercars, it's extremely limited and Lambo is making just 40. Claimed to be the direct descendant of the Miura Jota and Diablo GTR, the Essenza SCV12 features the most powerful naturally-aspirated V12 ever made by the Italian brand.
With 610 kW driving the rear wheels and a new X-trac sequential 6-speed gearbox available, this should surely be one of the purest forms of Lamborghini out there. It features an incredible power-to-weight ratio of 1.66 hp/kg, thanks to its lightweight carbon fiber monocoque chassis. The aerodynamics are noteworthy as Lambo claims the Essenza SCV-12 has more downforce than a GT3 race car.
Lamborghini is promising an insane ownership experience for the lucky 40. "Essenza SCV12 customers will become part of an exclusive club that will give them access to special programs to drive their hypercar on the most prestigious circuits in the world. The program includes storage service in a new hangar built in Sant'Agata Bolognese for the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 club. Each car will have a personalized garage and dedicated services, including webcams to allow customers to monitor their cars 24 hours a day using an app."
Stefano Domenicali, CEO and Chairman of Automobili Lamborghini, commented: "Essenza SCV12 represents the purest track driving experience that our brand can offer, an engineering feat that highlights the inextricable link between our cars and the asphalt of the track. Lamborghini is a brand constantly looking to the future and searching for new challenges, but we never forget our roots and who we are: Essenza SCV12 is the perfect combination of our unconventional spirit as a super sports car manufacturer and our true passion for motorsport."
