Lamborghini’s SCV12 hypercar on track

0

Lamborghini has developed the SCV12, a limited-edition, track-only hypercar featuring the company’s most powerful V12 naturally aspirated engine to date, capable of exceeding 830hp thanks to aerodynamic supercharging at high speed.

Several aspects of the setup have been developed particularly for the SCV12, with specific racing solutions devised by Squadra Corse engineers, including a new fully carbon fibre chassis that allows for a greater power-to-weight ratio as well as an enhanced handling and circuit driving experience.

The lightweight chassis with rear-wheel drive incorporates a sequential six-speed gearbox as a structural element within the chassis, reducing weight and enhancing weight distribution. The pushrod rear suspension is installed directly on the gearbox, while power is delivered on the track courtesy of specially developed slick Pirelli tyres fitted on magnesium rims (19in front, 20in rear)
