Owners will have access to secure web cam feeds so they can view the car whenever they want. If they want to drive a car, Lamborghini will arrange to take it to almost any racetrack in the world and owners will be able to drive it there. Lamborghini will also provide a professional racecar driver to provide coaching on how to get the most speed and enjoyment from their V12-powered supercar. The company will also host some special events throughout the year to let the owners of Asenza SCV12 live together and enjoy their cars as a group.
Only 40 cars will be produced. Lamborghini’s chief engineer Maurizio Riggeni said customers have already contracted for most of them, but only a few are available.
“This car is like a special passport to the most exclusive world of Lamborghini,” Regenegi said.
According to Lamborghini, the company has the most powerful V12’s Essenza SCV12. The 6.3-liter engine is “naturally aspirated”, meaning it does not have turbochargers or a supercharger, mechanical devices that force air into the engine to increase power. Nevertheless, it will produce more than 818 horsepower, the company said. Rignergi claimed that mechanical air compressors such as these would not have expected Lamborghini to have the same voice and performance as customers.
The SCV12 has an air scoop that, at high speeds, produces a supercharger-like effect. The forward-facing scoop feeds air directly to the engine, so as the car moves faster, air is pushed into the engine at higher and higher pressures for greater power.
The Essenza SCV12 is rear-wheel-drive unlike most Lamborghins, which are all-wheel-drive. It has a new six-speed transmission with a type of steering wheel paddle shifters that will be used in future Lamborghini cars. To make the car as light and compact as possible, the transmission is integrated into the car’s structure, with the SCV12’s rear suspension mounted directly to the gearbox.
The SCV12 was not engineered to comply with worldwide road safety regulations, but was designed to follow FIA regulations. Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile oversees various auto races globally, Including Formula 1 and the World Endurance Championship, which concludes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Like a true racecar, the SCV12 is designed so that one of the three major sections that make up the body can be quickly replaced while stopping in the pit. While the car can be painted in any color the customer wants, Lamborghini is making it available in a special racing inspired paint scheme that also includes a sponsor logo. The car’s rectangular steering wheel with built-in display screen is built on the steering wheels of Formula 1 cars.
“SC” in “SCV12” means Squadra Corps, or “Racing Team” in Italian, Which is also the name of Lamborghini’s motorsports department established in 2014. Ferruccio Lamborghini, who founded the company in 1963, famously did not want to involve his company in racing, preferring that Lamborghini, unlike his neighboring Ferrari, focus on making cars for road use. . Ferruccio Lamborghini sold his namesake company in 1972, and today under Volkswagen’s ownership, Lamborghini cars compete in various sports car races, including Le Mans, and in Super Trofeo, a racing series for Lamborghini Huracans.
Lamborghini’s Squadra Corps will take care of the cars and take their transport on the tracks and help owners figure out how to drive them. Essentially, SCV12 owners will be treated as if they are professional racing drivers, other than that they will not compete, Lamborghini will schedule five track events a year for the owners of SCV12 during the first three years, one of which goes without Will come for an additional fee. The owners will be charged for any of the other four events as well as they wish to arrange any additional track travel.
This new Lamborghini proprietary experience is similar to Ferrari’s Core Client XX program. In Ferrari’s program, which began in 2005 with the limited-edition Ferrari FXX, owners of exclusive track-only cars can participate in driving and testing sessions with Ferrari engineers. These cars are also used to test technologies that may appear in future Lamborghini’s more accessible Ferrari models with new transmissions.
