Lamborghini has just posted a new image on its social media accounts, depicting a new track-focused model with no roof or windshield, which should, in theory, serve as a competitor for the McLaren Elva and Ferrari Monza SP1 / SP2.
Unfortunately, we don't know much about the Lambo. The Italian automaker only wrote next to the picture: "Attenzione Macchina Veloce Aperta" – which means "Watch out, fast open machine".
The prototype can be seen wearing the same body wrap used for the Essenza SCV12, so it could very well be a roofless variant of the latter, making it a limited edition model dedicated only to the track, unlike the Monza SP2 for example, which you can also drive on public roads.
Nor is it the first Lamborghini model to offer this type of open-top configuration (no roof, windshield, windows). Who can forget the unique Concept S from 2005, based on the Gallardo? Then, in 2012, the stunning Aventador J Speedster, boasting a similar design philosophy.
So .. is this an SCV12 Speedster? not really, as the model also has a lot of differences, such as the fender, tail end design, taillight graphics, and exhaust pipe placement.
On the engine side, expect the naturally aspirated V12 unit to develop 830 hp.
