Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division built its first bespoke road-going model last year with the Aventador-based SC18 Alston.
Now, it has dropped a teaser video previewing an all-new, track-only limited edition model based, once again, on the Aventador.
Last month, a member on the McLaren Life forums claimed that he had previewed a new hardcore Aventador-based model dubbed the ‘SVR’ that will be limited to track use, be produced at just 40 units worldwide, and act as “Lamborghini’s version of FXX.”. It appears as though the model featured in this teaser is the SVR (name unconfirmed).
A series of flashing images of the car reveal that it will be painted in bright green and feature a bodywork distinct from the Aventador, with no headlights, a hood with air intakes and a pronounced front splitter. In addition, it sports radical wing mirrors, a pronounced roof scoop, and an elongated decklid, a massive carbon fiber rear wing and an aggressive diffuser.
In the video’s description, Lamborghini says that it will be powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 delivering 830 HP, a full 60 hp more than the Aventador SVJ. We also know that the car will feature a 6-speed Xtrac sequential transmission and a bespoke limited-slip differential.
The Italian automaker has not announced when this new Aventador-based model will be officially unveiled, but we expect to hear more in the coming weeks, if not days. It is thought that customer deliveries will kick off in 2021.
