Lamborghini SC18: the first 'one-off' commission created by Squadra Corse
Lamborghini have created a one-off car designed in collaboration between the customer who commissioned it and Centro Stile Lamborghini. Christened the SC18 Alston, its devilish looks and apocalyptic colour scheme make it look like it just drove straight out of hell.
Although it is road-legal, the SC18 is all about the racetrack. Featuring extreme aerodynamics, it also borrows Huracan GT3 EVO style air intakes and side and rear feature fenders, fins and airscoops inspired by the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO. A very nice start indeed. There is also a large carbon fibre wing with three mechanical adjustments, which generate optimal downforce on the track and no less than twelve air intakes on the rear hood to optimise the cooling of the ferocious V12 engine.
Let's talk about that engine. A top-of-the-line, aspirated V12 delivering 770bhp at 8,500 rpm and 531 ft-lb at 6,750 rpm all managed via the ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) optimised seven-speed gearbox. Combine this with a reduced weight thanks to the carbon fibre body and use of lightweight materials throughout, and Lamborghini have a car capable of immense performance. Of course, it comes with a telemetry system to measure exactly how incredible that performance is.
The carbon fibre body is finished in Grigio Daytona with red screen-printing with 20-inch single nut wheels on the front and 21-ich on the rear both with specifically-developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres. The interior has carbon fibre bucket seats and is trimmed in the lightweight Nero Ade Alcantara with cross-stitching in Rosso Alala.
This is the first time in its history that Lamborghini have undertaken such a project and it paves the way for unique cars commissioned by clients in the future under the Squadra Corse brand.
