The new wing in the next Lamborghini SCV12 It reminds me of my childhood, when my friend’s father, who was a carpenter and owner of a Hitachi excavator, used to spin us around in the shovel (wearing our motocross helmets) until he got bored and left us in the pool he had just built .
Take a closer look at this fool:
That is a hellish wing. Lamborghini claims that the SCV12 overall aero package will have more downforce than its current GT3 race car. The 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO has up to 600 kg downforce, or about 1,320 pounds.
But look how literally crushed this body is to achieve those figures:

Aerodynamic work includes terrifying dive planes and a continuous, rounded shallow ridge along the front splitter, a dual front hood air intake with a roof-mounted ram air intake, vents on the outer edge of the finders, a massive lower rear diffuser and of course the giant Gillette razor sticking out from the rear.
If it’s not yet obvious from the position of the headlights and the absurd lack of formality, the SCV12 is only on the track. Despite the camouflage, Lamborghini has shared a lot about the SCV12, which is the first such model developed by the automaker’s Squadra Corse racing division.
In the Lamborghini’s pure form, there’s a naturally aspirated 830-horsepower V12 that employs what the company calls high-speed supercharging thanks to all that airflow nose work, outfitted with a sequential gearbox. stiff six-speed that is also structurally vital to the custom carbon fiber racing chassis. The rear push bar suspension is also mounted on all six speeds. This configuration locks the car only as rear wheel drive.
The special track is completed by magnesium alloy wheels with a supposedly tailor-made Pirelli tire formula. Purchse of an SCV12 also allegedly includes mentoring of Lamborghini racing drivers, contact with engineers and organized experiences during the day on the track.
The cost I cannot afford to ask, and it is unclear how many will be built. But they will come this summer, and they will be noisy:
