Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 Is the Most Powerful, Track-Ready Lambo Yet

Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 Is the Most Powerful, Track-Ready Lambo Yet

  • Lamborghini has fully unveiled a send-off to its naturally aspirated V-12 engine: the Essenza SCV12.
  • Lamborghini says this is its most powerful V-12 engine to date, producing upwards of 819 horsepower.
  • It's a track-focused car, so it's equipped with loads of aerodynamics and a custom-built adjustable carbon-fiber rear wing.

    Lamborghini is going hybrid, and the track-ready Essenza SCV12 is here to send off the Italian supercar maker's naturally aspirated V-12 engine. The SCV12's monstrous twelve is capable of more than 819 horsepower, Lamborghini says, and it will be limited to only 40 units.

    See all that crazy aero? It helps the Essenza SCV12 produce more downforce than a GT3 car, Lamborghini claims, and the front splitter and massive adjustable carbon-fiber rear wing assist with that. The hood manages airflow up and over the windshield so that cool air reaches the snorkel scoop on the roof to feed air to the V-12, and it sits on magnesium wheels, 19-inch up front and 20-inch in the rear, wrapped in Pirelli rubber.

    Lamborghini still hasn't shared much about the "most powerful V-12 from Lamborghini to date"—only that it'll produce more than 819 horsepower thanks to a ram-air effect at high speeds. A six-speed sequential gearbox turns the rear wheels, and big Brembo brakes are on hand to slow everything down. Currently, the most powerful iteration of the Lamborghini's V-12 is in the Aventador SVJ, which produces 759 horsepower.

    The SCV12 will be built by the Lamborghini Squadra Corse motorsports division in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy. The 40 customers who get their hands on a Essenza SCV12 will get the opportunity to go to advanced driving programs at various racetracks across the world with Squadra Corse engineers and five-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Emanuele Pirro. Pricing hasn't been announced, but sounds worth whatever they say, right?
