More images of Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s track-only hypercar, the Lamborghini SCV12, have emerged ahead of its world premiere later this summer.

The V12-powered beast, which is capable of producing 830 horsepower, was first teased in March, with the Italian manufacturer having released photos of the car, albeit still in camouflage, on Tuesday.

According to Lamborghini, the SCV12 benefits from Squadra Corse’s motorports experience, particularly in the aero department, which sees the hypercar produce increased efficiency and higher downforce levels than its GT3 car.

The SCV12’s hood has a double air intake and a central rib directing airflow to the ram-air intake scoop located on the roof. This directs dynamic air pressure created by the car’s movement to increase static air pressure in the engine’s intake manifold, creating greater airflow through the engine and increasing power.

The car’s clear track intent and aerodynamic efficiency is further enhanced by the prominent splitter at the front, lateral flicks and vertical fins on the side sills, while at the rear is a custom-built carbon fiber rear wing.

Several aspects of the SCV12 have been developed particularly for the hypercar, with specific racing solutions devised by Squadra Corse engineers, including a new fully carbon fiber chassis that allows for a greater power-to-weight ratio as well as the best 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.

Pushrod rear suspension is system installed directly on the gearbox, while power is delivered on the track courtesy of specially developed slick Pirelli tires fitted on magnesium rims.

The SCV12 will be assembled entirely within the Lamborghini Squadra Corse factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, as a limited edition, where customers will become part in “advanced driving programs” at circuits worldwide.

Technical assistance will be provided by Squadra Corse engineers as well as five-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Emanuele Pirro, who serves as a special projects consultant for the brand.
