Is the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12’s chassis made of Carbon Fiber?
Lamborghini is always looking for ways to revolutionize automotive technology and has been pushing itself constantly to introduce something new to the market. Whether it be radically designed supercars and sports cars, powerful engines, or segment-first technologies to improve their product offerings, Lamborghini has always been on the offensive when it comes to development and change. And one new fitting example of their dedication is the development of carbon fiber chassis that they designed, developed, implemented in their Lamborghini Essenza SCV12.
The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 is the first car on the market with a carbon fiber roll cage homologated according to the FIA Hypercar safety standards. The Carbon Fiber monocoque is made in Lamborghini’s CFK department in Sant ’Agata Bolognese. The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 will be a limited edition Hypercar exclusively made for non-competitive track use. Irking to add a special car to your collection?

More about the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12’s Carbon Fiber Chassis
As mentioned in the previous paragraph, the Essenza SCV12 is the first car on the market with a carbon fiber roll cage homologated according to the FIA Hypercar safety standards. This is thanks to Automobili Lamborghini’s thirty years of experience in the study and application of composite materials in the automotive field.
The rigorous testing conducting by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile for chassis homologation that involves both static and dynamic tests helped in the eventual development and production of the Essenza SCV12’s chassis. The carbon-fiber monocoque was reinforced in several points, having to withstand forces of over 12 tons during the FIA homologation test without presenting significant deformations.
Benefits of the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12’s Carbon Fiber Monocoque
By opting for a carbon-fiber structure, Lamborghini Squadra Corse technicians have managed to optimize the overall weight of the vehicle with the additional help of innovative laminated foams inside the chassis (ROHACELL® 71 XT), while also increasing the cockpit space for optimal driving comfort. This results in a more engaging driving posture and seating position to improvise the driver’s focus and driving performance.
