Zyrus LP1200 Strada

Date posted : December 29. 2020

The first customer cars for the Lamborghini Essenza SC-V12 are being delivered at the moment of writing, and this amazing looking V12 racecar created by Squadra Corse allows a small number of very fortunate owners to experience driving a V12 Lamborghini on racetracks all over the world, with the help and support of Lamborghini's very own race department.

But that's also the main limitation of the Essenza SCV12, it's a track-only car, you are not allowed to drive it on the open road, some owners will probably take their SCV12 onto the street, but it's illegal ... so if you want racecar looks, and still be legally allowed to drive on the street, Zyrus Engineering from Norway has an answer for you.

The Zyrus LP1200 Strada, a limited production, street-legal version of their earlier LP1200-R we showed you in August 2020, they call it the LP1200 V2, and it's based on the Lamborghini Huracán LP640-4 (probably the Huracan Performante, and not the EVO). Zyrus replaces over 600 parts from the factory standard Huracán to create the LP1200 Strada.

This could be a LeMans race car, but it's a street-legal Zyrus LP1200 Strada.

To keep the Zyrus LP1200 Strada legal to drive on the streets, the power output is limited to 900hp, but with the press of a button, the full 1,200hp is unleashed ... to be used on the track only naturally, the Zyrus bespoke Smart Dash control system allows the driver complete customization of the car's parameters ... something also possible via the smartphone app.

It took Zyrus two years of testing and over 6,000 km to get the perfect setup for their Zyrus LP1200 Strada, with a weight of 1,427kg, all necessary safety measures for a street-legal car are still present, thanks to the highly modified styling, which includes a massive rear wing, done completely in-house in Norway, the Zyrus LP1200 Strada has 2,010kg of downforce at 200 km/h.

Pricing for this impressive Zyrus LP1200 Strada starts at €595,000 (about USD 730,000) but does include a day on the track together with the Zyrus team and engineers to familiarize the new owner with their LP1200 Strada.
