What is the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12?
The SCV12 has been designed by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division exclusively for track use and features extensive mechanical, aerodynamic and chassis upgrades over the Aventador on which it is loosely based. Only 40 examples will be built.
The firm has previously hinted that it is plotting an entry to Le Mans 2021 with a new hypercar category, and it’s likely the SCV12 will provide the basis for its factory racer.
