By Mark Smeyers on November 16. 2018 in Aventador.
So you have got a Huracan Tremendous Trofeo Evo race automotive, or maybe one of many Huracan GT3 racers, and also you get pleasure from them to the fullest, however you simply cannot overlook these spectacular Diablo SV-R, V12 observe monsters or the much more intimidating Diablo GT-R … two V12 Bulls that began the one-marque race scene again within the Nineties that will later flip into the Tremendous Trofeo sequence, first with the Gallardo Tremendous Trofeo and in a while with the Huracan ST fashions.
Sadly we’ve not seen a V12 race automotive for the reason that demise of the Murciélago LP670-Four R-SV from 2010 … till now. Effectively, not likely, however the brand new Lamborghini SC18 Alston is the closest factor to an precise V12 observe oriented automotive.
Whereas the SC18 is not an actual race automotive, this new one-off has been developed by Squadra Corse, the racing division for Automobili Lamborghini SpA, for a selected buyer and naturally all the teachings realized from the Huracan Tremendous Trofeo and GT3 have been utilized to this carbon fiber Bull.
Powered by the 6.5 Liter V12 engine discovered within the Lamborghini Aventador, the SC18 boasts 770 hp at 8,500 rpm with a most torque determine of 720 Nm at 6,750 rpm, whereas the facility output is similar as for the restricted version Centenario, the torque output has been elevated by 30 Nm. We nonetheless see a 7-Velocity ISR gearbox to convey all that energy to Veneno type center-lock wheels, 20 inch up entrance and 21 inch on the rear fitted with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires which were developed particularly for the SC18.
On the surface we get a GT3 impressed entrance part with giant air intakes inside a bespoke entrance bumper with vertical winglets on high of the wheels whereas the entrance hood consists of a pair of huge vents, on the aspect we discover deep aspect sills operating into giant, fashionable intakes in entrance of the rear wheels, the rear diffuser boasts a really open design, primarily to chill the V12 engine but in addition to extend downforce at pace.
I assume much more downforce will come from a powerful, clear carbon fiber rear wing that’s adjustable in three completely different positions (we have seen that on the Veneno earlier than) whereas the engine cowl is fitted with a complete of 12 air vents to maintain the engine even cooler, a vertical fin operating from the roofline into the rear wing completes the LeMans styling even additional … completed in a Daytona Gray tinted carbon fiber, the Lamborghini SC18 comes full with pink livery to point out an equally intimidating as lovely look.
Inside we discover a Nero Ade Alcantara inside, the massive central console show reminds us of the one seen within the Centenario and naturally comes with a telemetry to maintain observe of the proprietor’s progress … on the observe. The light-weight, carbon fiber seats are additionally completed in black Alcantara and boast a surprising, pink cross-stitching sample.
If there can be multiple SC18 is not recognized but, however this primary one-off from the Squadra Corse division will certainly be adopted by extra bespoke fashions sooner or later …
