Lamborghini’s 6.5-litre V12 track-only hypercar carried out its first shakedown

Lamborghini Squadra Corse is developing track-specific hypercar and it has completed its first shakedown at the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. They released some footage was released as a teaser.

Last month, Lamborghini unveiled a new V12 engine for use in a newly developed track-specific machine. The shakedown, which took place a few weeks ago before the pandemic of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) in Italy, is presumed to be based on a series of developments.


The unnamed vehicle features a 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine with a maximum output of 830hp (841ps). The first announcement was made at the Super Trofeo World Finals in Jerez last October.

At the moment little information has been published about this hypercar, but its exterior features a large rear wing, an air scoop on the roof and a racing hood with dual air intakes, and compared to other Lamborghini production models, you can see that it has a new design and technology that is different.

The chassis was designed to meet the highest safety standards by combining an aluminum front frame with a carbon fiber monocoque. The undercarriage features an innovative self-locking differential that improves circuit performance, and Pirelli tires are mounted on single-nut wheels.

Lamborghini has repeatedly stated that the car will not be used in racing. This is a circuit-specific hypercar that users can enjoy on “Track Day”, and it shows off the technology of the Italian supercar brand.

The development of an unnamed hypercar is in the final stages, and if it goes well, it will be world premiere in the summer of 2020.
