Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the competition department of the manufacturer of Santa’Agata Bolognese, aroused our curiosity by unveiling on its twitter account a photograph of a prototype of a high performance container.
Careful, nasty car
Just a few weeks after unveiling the Essenza SCV12, an 830 horsepower track supercar, this time the bull is preparing a… tray! For now, we have to make do with just one image, taken during testing at the Monza circuit, in the same camouflage that was used for the Essenza. However, on the sides, there is also the mention "Attenzione macchina veloce aperta", is "Attention, fast open car". Everything suggests that this prototype is developed on an Aventador SVJ basis, with probably the same engine specifications as the SCV12, ie an 830 hp V12 associated with a 6-speed X-Trac gearbox. You can already see the double tailpipes in the high position and the huge rear spoiler that promises to provide a lot of downforce to keep this fiery bovine down to the ground.
Road or trail?
The fact that this image is published by the Squadra Corse racing department could suggest that it will be a high performance car only usable on the circuit, for wealthy customers looking for thrills. However, the SC18 Alston, which was the first – unique – example ever developed by Squadra Corse, was approved for the road. This strange Lambo "aperta" is reminiscent of the Aventador J of 2011, a styling exercise that then foreshadowed the Spider version of the Italian supercar.
Our opinion, by leblogauto.com
The trays are on the rise! Merchant in the footsteps of Ferrari, which unveiled the Monza SP1 / SP2, Aston Martin V12 Speedster and McLaren Elva last year, Lamborghini will also be entitled to its demonic "hair-raising". But special models have become, in recent years, a specialty of the brand.
