One-off Lamborghini SC18 created by Squadra Corse : Lamborghini Squadra Corse has unveiled its very first one-off, which was designed with the customer and Centro Stile Lamborghini. The Lamborghini SC18 is approved for road driving, although it is primarily intended as a track car, and opens the door for Squadra Corse to embark on further personalized motorsports projects. The car features extreme aerodynamics, developed specifically for this model and derived from Squadra Corse’s experience in competition. The racing elements start from the front hood, with air intakes in the style of the Huracán GT3 EVO. The sides and rear feature fenders, fins and airscoops inspired by the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO.

The aerodynamic system is completed by a large carbon-fiber wing with three mechanical adjustments, designed to generate the optimal downforce on any circuit. In addition, the 12 air intakes formed on the rear hood – a solution already tested in endurance races – increase heat exchange and improve the cooling of the V12 engine. The powertrain is top-of-the-line Lamborghini. The aspirated 6,498cm³ (396.5in³) V12 delivers 770hp at 8,500rpm and torque of 720Nm at 6,750rpm, all handled via the Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) optimized 7-speed gearbox.

The power is combined with reduced weight thanks to the use of light materials and the new carbon-fiber body, with ground clearance of 109mm (4.3in). The rear is characterized by the specific exhausts and terminals with a unique design and sound. The SC18’s carbon-fiber body comes in Grigio Daytona (gray), with visible details and red screen printing to enhance its sportiness. The cockpit features interiors in Nero Ade (black) Alcantara with cross-stitching in Rosso Alala (red), and carbon-fiber bucket seats. The look is completed by the single nut wheels, 20in (50.8cm) on the front and 21in (53.3cm) on the rear, with specially developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires and a telemetry system to measure all aspects of performance on the track.
