Lamborghini Squadra Corse Makes Their Own Unique V12 Supercar
Lamborghini’s motorsport division, Squadra Corse unveiled the SC18. It’s their first one-off it is a street legal, track-optimised V12 powered beast.
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 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 twelve air intakes formed on the rear hood – a solution already tested successfully in endurance races – increase heat exchange and improve the cooling of the V12 engine.
The powertrain is top-of-the-line Lamborghini, delivering the performance of a true racing car: the aspirated 6498 cm3 V12 delivers 770 hp at 8,500 rpm and a torque of 720 Nm at 6,750 rpm, all handled via the ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) optimized seven-speed gearbox.
The huge power is combined with reduced weight thanks to the use of ultralight materials and the new carbon fibre body, with ground clearance of just 109 mm. The rear is characterized by the 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, with visible details and red screen-printing to enhance its sportiness. The cockpit features interiors in Nero Ade Alcantara with cross-stitching in Rosso Alala, and carbon fibre bucket seats. The look is completed by the single nut wheels, 20” on the front and 21” on the rear, with specially developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires and a telemetry system to measure all aspects of performance on the track.
