The Italian manufacturer has released a shadowy video to tease its new 819bhp, Aventador-based rival to the Ferrari FXX K
Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse race development team has teased a new, limited edition hypercar. Like the the one-off Lamborghini SC18 from November of last year, this latest special edition model will be based on the Aventador SVJ and feature a host of cosmetic and performance upgrades.
Styling revisions over the Aventador SVJ include a completely redesigned nose with a large splitter, new air intakes and blanking plates in place of the standard car’s headlamp units. There’s also a large engine intake scoop mounted to the roof, a set of unique centre-lock alloy wheels and an enormous rear wing, which looks to be made from carbon fibre.

Lamborghini says it’ll be powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine, producing 819bhp. The engine is the same basic unit found in the Aventador SVJ, albeit with a suite of performance upgrades which result in a 60bhp increase. We expect the engine will be mated to a sequential gearbox and a reworked version of the standard car’s four-wheel drive system.
The limited edition hypercar will also feature a host of chassis upgrades. Lamborghini’s teaser video suggests it’ll be fitted with a set of enormous disc brakes, uprated Brembo brake calipers and grippy Pirelli tyres. We also expect it will feature a reworked suspension system and a host of electronic assistance systems.
Given Lamborghini’s timing for the launch of the one-off SC18, it’s likely that this new limited edition hypercar will make its debut next month. Pricing information is yet to be confirmed, but each example could cost as much as two million pounds – placing it in the same league as the Ferrari FXX K.
