The SCV12 comes fitted with Lamborghini's most powerful V12 engine to date. Designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile (the brand's in-house center of design), the engine is capable of crossing the 830hp mark, thanks to aerodynamic supercharging at high speeds.

The SCV12 gains from Lamborghini Squadra Corse's GT motorsport expertise, using its racing and track experience to incorporate increased aerodynamic efficiency and higher downforce levels than a GT3 car.

The Lamborghini SCV12's front bonnet features a double air intake and a central rib that directs airflow to the ram-air intake scoop mounted on the roof.

This allows for dynamic air pressure created by the car's movement to increase static air pressure in the engine's intake manifold, thereby creating a larger airflow through the engine and increasing its power.

The car's track and aerodynamic efficiency is also enhanced by a prominent splitter at the front, lateral flicks, vertical fins on the side sills, and a custom-built carbon fibre rear wing.

Several elements of the Lamborghini SCV12 have been built specifically for the hypercar. The vehicle also features specific racing solutions devised by Squadra Corse engineers.

The SCV12 features a new full carbon fibre chassis that offers better power-to-weight ratio, and allows for the best handling and circuit driving experience.

The hypercar's rear-wheel drive uses a sequential six-speed gearbox as a structural element within the chassis, thereby reducing weight and enhancing weight distribution.

The car's pushrod rear suspension system is installed directly on the gearbox, and power is delivered on track via specially developed Pirelli tyres fitted on 19-inch magnesium rims at the front, and 20-inch ones at the rear.
