The SCV12 has to be the best-sounding Lamborghini ever

Open your earholes and get a load of the SCV12’s screaming engine

Published: 13 Oct 2020

There’s a lot of noise in the world right now. A lot of it bad; noise filled with deep, low-hanging anxiety and yucky news. Thankfully, Lamborghini has come in with a new noise. A better noise. A noise so loud it drowns out all that bad noise. It also just so happens to be a noise that sounds so good it makes the muscles in your cheeks contract until you have something called a ‘smile’ strapped across your face. Remember that? Smiling. Click play above, as it’s time to load up on smiles.

It all comes courtesy of Lamborghini testing the upcoming SCV12. That’s the Italian supercar brand’s track-only hypercar, a car fitted with the most powerful V12 ever built by the folks in Sant'Agata Bolognese and without the need to hit sound or emission regulations. So, unlike the current raft of supercars that sound like a cupped fart, this raging bull can scream as loud as it likes.

And boy can it scream. YouTuber 19Bozzy92 was there at Monza during the car's test with a handycam so the rest of the world could see this angry fighter jet on wheels spit flames and shrill its way to the redline. So what are you waiting for? Click play and start smiling.
