Lamborghini Squadra Corse presented a new 12-cylinder hypercar during its Super Trofeo World Final at Jerez on Saturday evening that will debut next year for track day use.

The currently unnamed hypercar, which won’t be used for racing, has been developed by Squadra Corse and designed by the Centro Stile in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

It will feature a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine producing 830 hp and is set to be produced in a limited edition run.

While the full car hasn’t been unveiled yet, elements of it were presented to guests during an event at Jerez, including a large rear wing, airscoop on the roof and a racing front hood with dual air intakes.

The car’s structure is composed of a front frame in aluminum joined to the carbon fiber monocoque, while the engine is housed in a steel rollcage created to maximize torsional and bending stiffness characteristics.

Its gearbox is positioned behind the mid-mounted engine and the rear suspension is directly connected to the six-speed sequential unit. 

The differential is an innovative mechanical self-locking design that allows the driver to adjust its preload dynamically to suit different track conditions.
