- The 2024 Lamborghini Urus Performante spawns a low-volume version called the Essenza SCV12 Special Edition.
- Limited to only 40 units, the Urus SCV12 will only be available to owners of the Essenza SCV12 track car released in 2021.
- Production is overseen by Lambo’s Ad Personam department, with plenty of exposed carbon fiber on the body or a livery to match the track version.
Lamborghini’s newest ultra-rare performance SUV is another toy for the brand’s wealthiest customers. It is limited to just 40 units, but no matter how many zeros there are in your bank account, you probably can’t buy one. That’s because the new Urus Essenza SCV12 is reserved for buyers of the 2020 Essenza SCV12 track car—others need not apply.
Before you get too excited, no, the new version doesn’t have a V-12. Despite the name, the special edition is really just a Urus Performante with a fancy livery to match the excitement of the SCV12 track car. Instead, the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 from the regular Performante carries over to the Essenza variant, pumping out the same 657 horsepower. That’s a lot of power, but not when compared to the track car’s naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 making 819 horsepower.
According to Lamborghini, the project was overseen by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam department and allows Essenza SCV12 customers to customize their preferred spec for the Urus. The manufacturer did not hold back on the carbon-fiber elements, either. The special Urus comes equipped with a carbon-fiber hood, roof, mirrors, rocker covers, and also a carbon-fiber frame.
Lamborghini worked with each customer on the livery for the Urus and designed them to echo their personal Essenza SCV12 cars down to the number painted on the doors. The new SCV12 comes equipped with standard 23-inch gloss-black wheels, but customers are allowed to choose from Lamborghini’s range of colors and wheels to pick whichever they want.
To set the interior apart from the production version, there are two plaques in the Urus SCV12, one that celebrates Lamborghini’s 60th birthday and one with the owner’s name. The plaques and the “Essenza SCV12” logo stamped on the dash will remind the driver and passengers alike that it is the superior version.
While Lamborghini hasn’t said how much the Urus Essenza SCV12 costs, it doesn’t matter because it’s priceless to everyone who already owns the track car.
