One-Off Lamborghini SC18 Alston Makes Public Debut At Festival Of Speed

The one-off SC18 Alston is the first model created by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse motorsport division and this is the first time the Aventador-based creation shows up in public, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Carfection takes us for a brief tour around the bespoke Lamborghini, which despite being optimised mainly for track use, it remains fully road-legal.

Wherever you look, you notice the obvious motorsport influence on the sharp body; from the front S-ducts that are inspired by those on the Huracan GT3, to the roof-mounted air intake and from the huge rear diffuser and fixed wing to the Centenario’s rear LED lights.

Power is still provided by the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine, tuned to produce the same 759 hp (566 kW / 770 PS) and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque you’ll find in the Aventador SVJ. Lamborghini didn’t announce any performance figures, but it’s safe to assume that this is one rather fast car.

The interior is again mostly Aventador, with carbon fiber covering most surfaces and the big tablet-like touchscreen system that was used in the Centenario and the Huracan Evo.

Lamborghini says that the SC18 Alston is even more aggressive than the SVJ, offering even more grip and stability while the throttle response is even more race car-like than the model it’s based on.

As for the name Alston, the owner wanted his one-off Lamborghini to be named after his son. Now imagine having a Lamborghini named after you…
