The Lamborghini Race Division’s First One-Off is the SC18, but it Won’t Be Their Last

Developed in conjunction with a well-heeled, unnamed customer, the SC18 is Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s first one-off project. Designed to be as close to a race car as is road legal, the car is ode to Lamborghini’s track work.

Based on the Aventador, of course, the SC18 actually takes some styling cues from the Huracan GT3 EVO race car—like the intakes on the hood. The fenders, fins, and air scoops have been added, too, that are inspired by the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO. Twelve air intakes on the rear hood help cooling and come from Lamborghini’s experience in endurance racing.

And then there’s a big, honking wing on the back.

The power comes form Lamborghini’s 6.5-liter V12. It generates 770 hp at 8,500 RPM and 530 lb-ft of torque at 6,750 RPM. The power is handled by an optimized seven-speed gearbox that uses an independent shifting rod.

Best of all, though, Lamborghini promises that this won’t be Squadra Corse’s last one-off.

“The SC18 paves the way to further personalized development projects for motorsport customers under the Squadra Corse brand,” writes Lamborghini in a statement.
