Lamborghini's track-focussed concept revealed at GT World Finals
Designed as an uncompromising, forward-looking single-seater track car
Based on the same hybridised V12 as the Sián
Interior features a holographic display
Sadly, it's for gamers only...
This is the Lambo V12 - a concept from the Italian carmaker Lamborghini and it has been designed for... gamers. If you have a PlayStation4 and the Gran Turismo Sport racing game you'll be able to drive this wild looking car virtually. Sadly, it won't make it to the road...
If you remember how extreme-looking the Sián was, well, it pales into insignificance compared to this. Unveiled at the Gran Turismo Championship World Finals in Monaco, it looks like the Batmobile of the extreme future! It sure is something Bruce Wayne would take to an open track day. This uncompromising, forward-looking single-seater track car will be appearing in virtual, driveable form in the game next year and it is based on the same hybridised V12 as the Sián.
The V12 features an extremely angular and aggressive body with Y-shaped headlights, an enormous split rear wing. Power comes from a 6.5-litre V12 which makes 807 horsepower – 34 of those are courtesy of a supercapacitor. And according to Sant’Agata Bolognese the whole mean looking thing weighs just 819kg!
But if you thought the exterior was wild (it is), the single-seat interior will blow you away; you enter the car from the front - like you would with a fighter plane - and it’s been designed to look even more futuristic than the body and features a holographic display. Lamborghini hopes will be possible for its production cars in the next decade.
It’s a shame that this thing won’t make it to the road...
