Lamborghini teases new Squadra Corse V12 hypercar

Published: 25 March 2020

► Lambo racing division builds a hypercar
► V12, all-wheel drive and track-only
► Full reveal expected in summer 2020

Lamborghini is brewing something truly hardcore. The brand’s motorsport division, Squadra Corse has announced that it has been shaking down a new V12 hypercar destined for the track.

Give me technical details

It all sounds very Lamborghini. A 6.5-litre V12 sits in the middle producing around 830 horsepower, making it the most powerful version of the brand's V12 in production, even more than the supercapacitor-equipped Sian. That power is sent to all four wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox. A mechanical self-locking diff allows the driver to set the optimal amount of grip depending on the track.

The monocoque chassis is carbonfibre, mated to an aluminium front frame and a steel rollcage for the engine aft. Lambo also says that the gearbox is connected mechanically via arms to the suspension system, boosting torsional rigidity. Lambo's trad scissor doors will remain.

I guess it will look suitably menacing…

Absolutely. Along with the shadowy teaser image and most recent video previewing a camouflaged prototype, you can spot a few details. The rear wing is enormous, there’s a roof-mounted air scoop for ventilation and the front end features two air intakes.

When will we see it in full?

The track-only hypercar’s full reveal is planned for summer 2020.
