Lamborghini Seemingly Teases Wild Track Car With No Roof

Very well well. What do we have here? Surely another special version based on Aventador, but which one? We have an idea. The adjacent teaser image was posted to social media by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the Italian brand’s racing division, leading us to believe we’re dealing with a track car.

If this body wrap sounds familiar to you, it’s because the same livery was used by the Sant’Agata Bolognese brand when preparing for the world premiere of the Essenza SCV12. In fact, it also bears the lettering “Attenzione Macchina Veloce”, translated as “Attention Fast Machine” on the doors. The difference here is that the new V12 Beast also has “Aperta” (“Open”) written to point out the obvious.

Putting two and two together it looks a lot like an Essenza SCV12 with the roof cut off. It appears to be a roofless car in a literal sense, as there doesn’t appear to be a folding roof hidden behind the seats. Maybe it has a removable awning, although we’re tempted to believe it doesn’t have a roof at all. We are inclined to say the same about the glass in the doors, which are probably gone as well, as well as the windshield.

It wouldn’t be the first unleashed V12 bull of its kind, as the 2012 Geneva Motor Show saw the unveiling of the Aventador J (Jota) as a unique speedster. The prototype here doesn’t look as hardcore as the aforementioned Essenza SCV12 as it lacks the huge rear wing, but it still has a large aerodynamic piece at the rear.

Whether this is indeed a speedster version of the Raging Bull on the track remains to be seen, but whatever we’re dealing with here, the car sure doesn’t look like it can be driven on public roads. Almost a decade since its launch, the Aventador is still pumping out derivatives, with no sign of a successor. Lamborghini treats the platform for all it’s worth, which isn’t all that surprising considering the Countach, Diablo, and to some extent Murcielago, all of which have had long lives.
