This Lamborghini SC20 Is Squadra Corse Latest “One-Off”
It’s not often Lamborghini’s motorsport division create a car for the road, but they’ve gone and done it again. The last time they released something like this for a customer, it was 2 years ago – with the SC18 Alston.
Just like that car, this new SC20 is also built around the company’s flagship V12 engine which also produces 770PS and 720Nm of torque here.
So, what’s different about Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s latest one-off? Well, as you can tell from the photos, this time around they’ve gone and made a convertible.
Mind you, they still consider this SC20 capable for track use. The styling was, of course, mostly handled by Lamborghini’s design studio, Centro Stile. However, the team had significant input and took inspiration from other Lambos like the Diablo VT Roadster, Aventador J, Veneno Roadster and Concept S.
Here are some unique features of the SC20:
- Hand polished carbon fibre body
- Single-nut aluminum rims
- Carbon fibre wing with 3 set positions
- Bianco Fu (white) base with Blu Cepheus (blue) livery
- Nero Cosmus (black) and Bianco Leda (white) with Blu Cepheus highlights on the interior
- Visible carbon fibre trim pieces on the interior
- Solid aluminium door handles
- 3D printed air vents

Lamborghini Squadra Corse presented the SC20, a unique specimen of an open-top track car type-approved for road use. The Lamborghini SC20 is the second one-off engineered by the motorsport department and designed by Centro Stile in Sant’Agata Bolognese: the car was created following the customer’s wishes, who was involved in the project from the very first drawings by Lamborghini’s designers.
The common goal was to build a unique vehicle, extreme in its design and performance, and able to combine aerodynamic solutions taken from racing Lamborghinis incorporating unprecedented lines and exclusive details.
The carbon fiber body was polished and slicked down by hand by the Lamborghini aerodynamic engineers to deliver optimal airflow for both performance and the cockpit’s occupants, ensuring comfortable open-air driving even at high speeds. The pronounced front splitter is framed by two fins and the air intakes on the front hood are inspired by those of the Huracán GT3 EVO, while the sculpted body sides reflect the solutions adopted on the Essenza SCV12. The muscular rear is topped by a large carbon fiber wing that can be set in three different positions: Low, Medium and High Load.
The Lamborghini SC20 features exclusive details starting from the body colors on a Bianco Fu (white) base, created for the customer, on which the Blu Cepheus (blue) livery stands out. The same shade is found in the interior, alternating with Nero Cosmus (black) and Bianco Leda (white). The most significant element of the passenger compartment is the visible carbon fiber used for the dashboard cover, rear wall, door panels, center console and steering wheel trim, in addition to the monocoque. Carbon fiber is also used for the shells of the seats upholstered in Alcantara and leather. The door handles on the other hand, are machined from solid aluminum. Lastly, the air vents are created using 3D printing technology at the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory.
Its engine is based on Lamborghini’s flagship V12: the 6,498 cm3 aspirated twelve-cylinder that delivers 770 CV at 8,500 rpm and develops 720 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm. It is managed through the optimized seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) gearbox. The power is discharged to the ground by the four-wheel drive system with central electronic differential, and the Pirelli PZero Corsa tires are mounted on single-nut aluminum rims, 20 inches in front and 21 inches at the rear.
