Nothing to See Here, Just a Lamborghini Diablo SV-R Race Car on the Road
The 1990s were a difficult time for Lamborghini. The Italian company offered only two vehicles and one of them was the weird LM002 SUV, which was eventually discontinued in 1993. The other one was the Diablo, which went on to become one of the brand’s most iconic models. The supercar that made the transition between the legendary Countach and the Murcielago, the Diablo was the first Lambo to spawn an official factory-built race car. It’s called the SV-R, Lamborghini made only 31 of them, and you can buy one until February 21, 2021.
Watch a Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi 80 V8 BiTurbo Duke It Out Autocross Style
Lamborghini never built a car with autocross or rally racing in mind. Other types of racing, like GT3, for example, are covered by Sant’Agata Bolognese via its Squadra Corse arm, which races the Huracan GT3 Evo on various tracks around the world. Autocross, however, wasn’t and isn’t on Lamborghini’s list.
The Lambo Essenza SCV12 is the Most Powerful Lamborghini Ever Built
Lamborghini’s highly-anticipated track-only car is finally here, and it’s called the Essenza SCV12. Developed by Squadra Corse, the company’s racing division, and designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile, the Essenza SCV12 is a limited-edition, track-only supercar that will be built in just 40 units. Lambo says it’s the spiritual successor to the Miura Jota and Diablo GTR, and the customer experience includes an exclusive club with special programs starting 2021. Just like the regular production Aventador, it’s powered by a V-12 engine, but this mill was revised to produce "more than" 830 horsepower, which makes it the most powerful V-12 Lambo to date.
2020 Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo LP1200 by Zyrus Engineering
It’s not uncommon to see a heavily tuned Lamborghini Huracan. Every so often, though, a tuner comes out with a tuning kit so jaw-dropping that you’re left with no words to describe it.
That’s basically what Zyrus Engineering accomplished when it presented its latest creation. It’s called the LP1200, and it’s based on the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo, the racing variant of the standard Huracan. Yes, folks. The LP1200 is a road-legal monstrosity that’s based on a track-only racer that’s based on a road-legal car.
Lamborghini SCV-12 Has The Most Powerful Naturally Aspirated V-12 The Brand Has Ever Produced
Lamborghini didn’t really have any new products on the horizon, but here we are today looking at the new SCV-12. It’s a track-focused hypercar that’s powered by the most powerful naturally-aspirated V-12 engine that the Italian automaker has ever built. A few details about it were also revealed, but we won’t know the full, in-depth details until hypercar launches later this year.
2020 Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept
The 2020 Lamborghini Urus ST-X is a race-spec concept version of the Urus, the company’s first-ever SUV. The concept vehicle previews a full-production SUV designed for a single-brand championship that will debut in 2020 in Europe and the Middle East. Conceived as a new "arrive and drive" experience in Lamborghini’s motorsport program, it will offer customers a complete package including the vehicle and technical support during race weekends.
Yes, the 2020 Urus ST-X will compete in a series very similar to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo, reserved for race-spec Huracan models. Like all other track-bred Lambos, the 2020 Urus ST-X was designed and built by Lamborghini Squadra Corse.
Here’s That Teaser of the Track-Only Aventador-Based Super Car that Lamborghini is Working On
Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division is about to unleash its second bespoke model. Following last year’s introduction of the SC18 Alston, Squadra Corse is working on a track-only suspercar. It’s also based on the Aventador and the first teaser gives us a glimpse at some of the details.
How Fast Does the New Aventador Track-Only Car Have to Go to Be The Fastest Lamborghini Ever?
In order to even begin understanding what to expect from the upcoming track-only Aventador, we must first look at Lamborghini’s supercar roster from two standpoints: one of them relates to Sant’Agata Bolognese’s road-going cars over the years, while the other has to do with its race cars currently involved in various motorsport competitions around the world.
Lamborghini Squadra Corse already released a CGI-filled teaser video that drops small hints at its upcoming track-only beast under the “purest track experience” punchline. Join us as we try to anticipate what can such a car deliver in terms of performance, especially acceleration and top speed...
Lamborghini Could Follow Koenigsegg And Go Prototype Racing As Early As 2022
When you think about prototype racing, you probably envision the mighty Audi racers that squashed everyone on their way to Le Mans glory in the noughties or, maybe, one of the many glorious machines to come out during the Group C days. Scroll back the years and, now, it seems we may be on the verge of a new resurgence of sports car racing, one led by the world’s top supercar makers and the list may just grow further as Lamborghini looks at moving up from GT racing and into prototype racing.
Lamborghini builds racing version of Urus; Plans racing series for 2020
Lamborghini, once a brand completely uninterested in motorsport, is preparing to build a racing version of its Urus Super SUV, dubbed the ST-X. It should lead to a single-make racing series that will feature Rallycross-style courses.
The manufacturer from Sant’Agata Bolognese unveiled the Urus ST-X concept that is a very accurate preview of Lamborghini’s first racing utility vehicle. It was presented to the press at the Vallelunga circuit, near Rome, where Lamborghini hosted its annual World Finals for the Super Trofeo series.
Unlike another SUV-based series that should kick-off next year, the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy, the Urus ST-X will race on mixed surfaces similar to rallycross events where cars have to run on tarmac as well as on gravel. Lamborghini says the championship will take teams and drivers on a tour of FIA-approved tracks in Europe and beyond.
Lamborghini has revealed the most aggressive version of its smallest offering, the $430,000 Huracan GT3 Evo racer, which as its name suggests, is an evolution of the original Huracan GT3. It improves the first GT3 in several ways and is available for purchase both as a standalone model or as an upgrade for any existing Huracan GT3.
Winning not only the GT Asia Series Championship in 2016, as well as the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring, the Huracan GT3, has proven highly successful, and the Evo is further refined and enhanced to bring out its qualities. The main point of focus was enhancing the car’s aerodynamics with the help of the Dallara Engineering.
Lamborghini Seeks to Enter the Urus in an "All-Roads Competition" to Demonstrate it’s Capability
Lamborghini introduced the Urus just last December, ushering in a hot new competitor for the high-end performance SUV segment that matched a tall-riding, opulent body style with the traditional Raging Bull qualities of head-turning style and neck-snapping performance. Naturally, as the first-ever SUV from Lamborghini, we wanna know what it can do - both on the road, and off it. Thankfully, it’s looking like the brand is gearing up to show us exactly what the Urus is capable of.

14-Year-Old Gets a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo for His Birthday
So, what kind of presents did you get when you were 14 years old? Based on my recollection, I got a Ralph Lauren cologne, a VHS tape of Braveheart, and a $20 bill. It’s safe to say then that 14-year old Steven Aghakhani received a much better gift for his birthday than what I hauled in back then. The budding race car driver was surprised by his father in his 14th nameday with a Lamborghini. It’s not just any Lamborghini, though. It’s a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo, the Italian automaker’s newest eater-of-worlds racer.
Aghakhani took delivery of the car when his father surprised him with a visit to O’Gara Beverly Hills. Unsure of what was going on, the 14-year old got the shock of a lifetime when his dad walked him up to a covered car and lifted the sheets, revealing a car many of us will only own in our dreams and imaginations.
Unfortunately for the birthday celebrant, he won’t be able to take his new Lambo home and drive it to his high school anytime soon. The race car is built specially for track use so if young Steven wants to drive his new pride and joy, he’s going to have to do it on the track or during racing competitions. Still, it’s a good problem to have, don’t you think?
2018 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo
Back in 2014, during the annual auto extravaganza that is Monterey Car Week, Lamborghini revealed the Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, a hardcore, race-ready iteration of the popular Lamborghini Huracan road car. Framed as an entry into the exciting world of GT3 racing, the Super Trofeo offers world-class performance at a relatively affordable price point. Built to spec for competition in the international one-make Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series, more than 150 examples of the Super Trofeo have sold worldwide in the three years its been on the market, with racers taking to the track in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America. As many as 90 cars participate in the series annually. Now, the motorsports geeks from Lamborghini Squadra Corse just released an updated version of the Super Trofeo at a special event at Sant’Agata Bolognese, and it’s got improved aerodynamics and new safety measures, all with the same Super Trofeo fun.
“As it is a single-brand series, there are no regulatory demands that mean a successful model has to be altered. But with the Evo we wanted to give our customers an even more thrilling experience at the wheel, with superior performance and improved safety,” says Lambo’s Head of Motosport, Giorgio Sanna. Lambo’s CEO Stefano Domenicali adds, “Lamborghini Squadra Corse is continuing its plan to grow and consolidate its position as a trend setter on the competition scene.” So then – is this six-figure speed toy worth the outlay?
