The new Lamborghini Aventador Essenza SCV12 is “the direct descendant of cars such as the Miura Jota and Diablo GTR”, explains Lamborghini. The new Lamborghini Aventador SCV12 is quite bonkers, but it’s not the first time Lambo has alleviated itself from things like ‘rationale’ and ‘logic’ to build track-only supercars.
Step forward, Mssrs Diablo SV-R – the first ‘official’ Lamborghini motorsport entrant built back in 1996 – and its successor, the Diablo GTR. Again, built as a track-version of the road-going GT car.
With the unveil of the SCV12, we deemed it prudent to furnish your brain with pictures of these delightful cars because any day you view a track-honed Diablo is A Good Day. Or something.
