Without even the slightest touch of color, patent filings are generally quite bland compared to an actual image of the car. Well, that’s not the case here, because the SCV12 shown in black and white looks as crazy as the real thing covered in funky packaging by Lamborghini Squadra Corse. Discovered by a member of the Taycan EV Forum, the adjacent patent deposit was actually registered with the European Union for intellectual property in July 2019.
Since the SCV12 is limited to the track, it doesn’t have to comply with any pedestrian safety regulations, so Lamborghini’s racing arm had the freedom to show off everything with the shape of the car. It doesn’t even have traditional headlights because it only has a pair of small trapezoid lights mounted low on the bumper.
Cooling ducts and vents are the main themes from any angle, but the massive rear fender and diffuser are probably the most eye-catching features of the design. Lamborghini’s obsession with hexagons continues in SCV12 if you look at the shape of the small taillights. The dual cannon-type exhaust tips are connected to the company’s most powerful V12 engine, delivering more than 830 rabid bulls.
Put the SCV12 next to an Aventador “base” and it will look pretty bland. There is also the weight to take into account because we are sure that Lamborghini Squadra Corse has managed to eliminate a lot of fat compared to the road model. As a reminder, the Aventador S has a dry weight of 1,575 kilograms (3,472 pounds). The fixed windows, probably made of polycarbonate, give us an idea of the draconian diet that the SCV12 went through in an attempt to reduce every last drop in performance of the 10-year-old Aventador platform.
Combining as much power with a lower curb weight and higher support levels than a GT3 race car should translate into breathtaking performance on a race track. It is a Lamborghini Squadra Corsica vehicle from start to finish as it was developed by the same team in charge of the company’s racing cars and will also be built by them at the Sant’Agata Bolognese plant.
The official revelation is expected to take place later this summer, when we expect low production volumes and an extremely high price. Oh, we almost forgot to say that the SCV12 will be rear-wheel drive, with power provided by a six-speed sequential gearbox taken from the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo.
