0

Lamborghini Squadra Corse has unveiled its SC18, the first one-off in the history of the Sant’ Agata Bolognese motorsport division. Designed in synergy with the customer and Centro Stile Lamborghini, the SC18 is road approved but designed primarily for track use.

The car features extreme aerodynamics, developed specifically for this model and derived from Squadra Corse’s competition experience. The racing elements start at the hood, with air intakes in the style of the Huracán GT3 Evo; the sides and rear feature fenders, fins and airscoops are inspired by the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo.

The aero system is completed by a large carbon-fiber wing with three mechanical adjustments. In addition, the twelve air intakes formed on the rear hood – a solution already tested successfully in endurance races – increase heat exchange and improve engine cooling.

The powertrain is the top-of-the-line aspirated 6498cc V12, which delivers 770ps at 8,500rpm and 720Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm. The engine is bolted to a 7-speed gearbox.

To maximize the lightweighting, the SC18 is equipped with a new carbon-fiber body and ultralight materials were integrated throughout. The track-car also has a ground clearance of just 109mm.
