And this is what it could look like.
Lamborghini has been throwing some heavy punches of late, and it seems as if the Italian supercar manufacturer can't stop delivering breathtakingly beautiful designs. Last week Lamborghini's Squadra Corse racing division surprised the motoring community with a track car with no roof. Revealed on social media, the single picture hints at a roofless version of the brilliantly ostentatious Essenza SCV12, a car that has one of the best sounding engines around. Shrouded in considerable mystery, Lamborghini is yet to release official pictures of the roofless beast, but in the meantime, FutureCarsNow has released a rendering of what the track-focused car could look like, and it's a stunner.
With DNA tied to the aging Aventador, the Essenza SCV12's topless sibling should also make use of the same platform. As one can see in the rendering, the car shows no sign of a foldable rooftop; there's truly no roof to be found, and the lack of doors and a windshield backs up the hardtop Essenza SCV12's non-road legal status. There's no doubting the fact that the roofless Lambo will also share the hardtop's manic V12 engine which is touted as being Lamborghini's most powerful V12 engine to date with 830 horsepower. Power will be transferred through a six-speed sequential structural gearbox by X-track.
The rest of the Essenza SCV12's design is as breathtaking as that V12 powerplant: the suspension setup is directly mounted to the top of the transmission, and the ultra-stiff carbon-fiber monocoque allows the car to do away with a heavy steel roll cage (perfect for the roofless version). The aerodynamics are also out of this world. The Essenza SCV12 can produce 2,646 pounds of downforce at 155 mph.
As of 2021, the lucky owners of these cars will be able to enjoy five track days, with tutoring and technical support supplied by Lamborghini. Owning one of these exquisite creations will come with a lot of perks, and it's good to see manufacturers invest as much time into their customers as they do with their cars.
