2,000-hp 215 Racing Mostro Di-Potenza SF22: A ‘Lamborghini’ concept heading for production
What you’re looking at here is the Lamborghini Indomable and no – it’s not a new Lamborghini model. Designed by Design 4 Motion’s Daniel Chinchilla and Alberto Fernandez under the Masters Program sponsored by Lamborghini, the Indomable is now ready to enter production.
Will it be built in Sant’Agata Bolognese? No, interestingly enough the Lamborghini Indomable will be built right here in America buy a Pennsylvania based company called 215 racing and MOSTRO DI-POTENZA.
When produced the model will be renamed the SF22, which stands for Street Fighter and the design influence provided by a F22 fighter jet. Only 50 units of SF22 will be made and each will be powered by a 9.4L twin-turbo V8 making 2,000-hp and 2,000 lb-ft of torque. Wait is that a typo? No, not at all. Mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission, the SF22 will go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds with a top speed of 265 mph.
The SF22 will be produced in the Philadelphia, PA area, at a rate of 2 per month. 215 is currently accepting orders for delivery in mid-2012. Prices start at $950,000.
We’ll have to wait and see if 215 and Mostro Di-Potenza can make the SF22 a reality.

215 Racing Inc./Mostro Di-Potenza Announces Exclusive Rights to Build the Lamborghini Indomable Concept
ABINGTON, PA, May 09, 2011 – 215 Racing Inc. an American Based company, is proud to announce the exclusive rights to build the Lamborghini Indomable Concept created by Design 4 Motion. This design was created by Daniel Chinchilla under the Masters Program sponsored by Lamborghini. The design is a perfect fit for the first offering of 215 to the supercar market.
The car will be built by the Sub-company MOSTRO DI-POTENZA and will be renamed The SF22. This name comes from the design influence of the F22 fighter jet, and is incorporated in the car. SF stands for Street Fighter and only 50 of these cars will be produced.
“We knew that entering a market as a new supercar company has become a rarely successful trend. We hope to make our niche by offering the customers something they could never imagine,” said Anthony Crudup, Chief Executive Officer, 215 Racing/ Mostro Di-Potenza.
The huge front intake funnels ram air to cool the huge 14″ Disc and 6 piston Brake calipers. The rear tail lights double as an airfoil that help disrupt airflow to assist in reducing drag.
Try imagining a 2000HP mid-engine supercar powered by a twin-turbo 572 GM engine. A supercar that can fit a 6’7″ driver, a 6 speed billet sequential transmission, a Carbon fiber/ Kevlar blend composite body, a full touch screen cockpit , Airspeed adjustable intercoolers and wing/speed brake.
“We think it’s time for the Bugatti Veyron to pass the top speed production car crown to us. They have held it for 10 years! But that is not our primary focus, we want to give the owner something that can only come from Mostro and I think we nailed it with this design. Also 70% of all our vendors are American Companies and we pride ourselves on keeping our fingers on the pulse of the newest and most innovative automotive technology the industry has to offer,” said A. Crudup.
Daniel Chinchilla, The Designer modified the design to get away from the Lamborghini feel of the car but was able to maintain the Italian styling. We didn’t want the public to ask “Is that the new Lamborghini?” said Anthony Crudup.
The automobiles will be produced in the Philadelphia, PA area, at a production rate of 2 per month. 215 is currently accepting Preliminary Sale Contracts for the Purchase of the car for mid- 2012.
