Lamborghini Tests Most Extreme Aventador

The company is testing a speedster at the Monza circuit.

Lamborghini Squadra Corse has posted a photo from the Monza circuit, where the unusual car is currently being tested. The characteristic location of exhaust pipes and a curved wing make it possible to recognise the Aventador SV in it, but the lack of a roof and windshield says that this is not just a roadster but a speedster.

There was already a speedster in the history of the Aventador: in 2012, Lamborghini brought a single copy of the Aventador J, which immediately found a buyer, to the Geneva Motor Show. Perhaps now the company is building another supercar — and the presence of Squadra Corse in this case could not have been more relevant. The division usually specializes in cars for client racing programs and limited racing tours like the Essenza SCV12 but sometimes condescends to road supercars.

Nevertheless, the Lamborghini Speedster is already interesting in itself, and it does not have many competitors: these are the twins Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2, the McLaren Elva and the Aston Martin V12 Speedster, which imitates the design of deck-based fighters. There is no information about specifications. We can only assume that the two-door will be close to the Aventador SVJ, which means it will get a V12 6.5 engine, a seven-speed ISR and all-wheel drive.

The latest project of Lamborghini Squadra Corse is the Essenza SCV12. It is equipped with a 6.5-liter V12 that develops more than 830 hp, a six-speed Xtrac sequential transmission and an aerodynamic body kit that generates up to 1,200 kg of downforce (this is more than the GT3 class cars). The circulation of the Essenza SCV12 is limited to 40 copies only.
