It's not just the urban SUV segment that is competitive. The proof with Lamborghini, which is currently developing an exclusive speedster that will compete with the McLaren Elva and Ferrari SP1 and SP2.
After Ferrari with the Monza SP1 and SP2, McLaren with the recent Elva or even Aston Martin, it was likely that Lamborghini would also be affected by speedster fever. The manufacturer of Sant'Agata Bolognese has published on social networks, as a "teaser", the first image of a discoverable which promises to be particularly radical. Although camouflaged, the supercar exhibits its open two-seater mid-rear engine architecture, devoid of windshield. The rear part is very similar to that of the Aventador SVJ. In case this look is not suggestive enough, Lamborghini has found it useful to write on the doors "attenzione macchina veloce aperta", which can be translated as" attention, fast open car ".
The know-how of the race
This upcoming Lamborghini, whose name is still unknown, was announced by the Squadra Corse, the brand's "competition" department, which is responsible for its development after that of the SC18 Alston and Essenza SCV12. If the speedster took over the mechanics of the Aventador SVJ, it would be powered by an atmospheric 6.5L V12 of 770hp and 720Nm of torque. Add to that a significantly reduced weight compared to the Aventador, and you have a particularly explosive cocktail.
The Italian should be produced in very small series and could be reserved for use on the circuit, which remains to be confirmed. The same goes for its price, which could be seven digits before the decimal point. But by the time of the official presentation, all planned copies will probably already be reserved..
