Lamborghini’s SC18 Is The First One-Off Created By Their Racing Division

Lamborghini Squadra Corse has unveiled its first one-off model in the company’s history.

Called the SC18, the car is based on the Aventador and has been created by Lamborghini’s motorsport division. As a result, the car is designed primarily for track use and it features an aggressive aerodynamics package derived from motorsport.

Starting up front, the SC18 has been equipped with air intakes that mimic those used on the Huracán GT3 EVO. The racing inspiration is also visible elsewhere as the hood-mounted air scoop and rear fin echo the ones used on the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO.

Moving to the rear, the car has a massive carbon fiber wing with three mechanical adjustments. Designers also installed a sloping rear engine cover which has twelve vents to improve cooling.

Speaking of the engine, the SC18 has a 6.5-liter V12 that produces 759 hp (566 kW / 770 PS) and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque.  This means the model is as powerful as the Aventador SVJ Coupe which can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).

While Lamborghini didn’t mention performance specs for the SC18, the company did confirm the car’s engine is connected to an optimized seven-speed ISR gearbox.

Since the model was created by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that the SC18 is extremely lightweight.  The company didn’t mention numbers, but noted the car has a carbon fiber body and other “ultralight materials.”

The SC18 was developed with input from the car’s owner and they apparently wanted a Grigio Daytona grey exterior with red accents.  The two-tone theme is continued in the cabin as there’s carbon fiber bucket seats with black Alcantara upholstery and red contrast stitching.

Despite the focus on track performance, the SC18 is road legal.  That’s certainly a bonus and one that will ensure the car gets plenty of use.

        Pagani huayra is a twin-turbo, six litre v12, cabrio tops at 1250 kg
        Both are carbon fibre made. 4wd isn’t heavier than turbos and intercoolers

  • Seats & a steering wheel

    I love the Aventador design, truly Lamborghini’s best HOWEVER it’s getting really long in the tooth and even these great looking special editions are becoming a passé now. Just like Aston Martin who did their design themes to death over a 10 year + year period. I think it’s time for an Aventador replacement and a new design.
