Lamborghini’s SC18 is the first one-off model in the history of the Sant’ Agata Bolognese motorsport division.

It’s road approved but designed primarily for use on the track and paves the way for further personalised projects under the Squadra Corse brand.

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 bonnet, with Huracán GT3 EVO air intakes, while the sides and rear feature fenders, fins and airscoops are inspired by the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO.

The aerodynamic system is completed by a large carbon fibre wing with three mechanical adjustments, able to generate the optimal downforce on any circuit.

In addition, the proven 12 air intakes on the rear deck increase heat exchange and improve the cooling of the V12 engine.

The powertrain is top-of-the-line Lamborghini, delivering the performance of a full on race car.

The 6.5-litre V12 delivers 575kW at 8500 rpm and 720Nm of torque at 6750 rpm, all handled via the ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) optimised 7-speed gearbox.

Weight has been reduced with the use of ultralight materials and the new carbon fibre body, with ground clearance of just 109 mm.

At the rear are specific exhausts and terminals with a unique design and sound.

The exclusiveness of the SC18 is underlined by the colour of the carbon fibre body in the Grigio Daytona (grey), 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 fibre bucket seats.

The look is completed by single nut wheels, 20-inch on the front and 21-inch on the rear, with specially developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres and a telemetry system to measure all aspects of performance on the track.
