Lamborghini has unveiled the one-of-a-kind SC18 Aventador for one very lucky customer.
Even though Lamborghini is looking towards their next generation of supercar that doesn’t mean they can’t make their current generation of naturally aspirated V12 crazy-mobiles even better than they already are. We’ve seen Lamborghini take the Nurburgring crown away from Porsche thanks to their Aventador SVJ, and now Lamborghini has unveiled an even crazier one-off Aventador for a customer that asked very very nicely.
It’s called the SC18, and its built in conjunction with the customer’s desire to have something that uses technology from Lamborghini’s race cars. That means Squadra Corse got involved to provide some of the racing tweaks that appear on their GT3 Huracan and Aventador models.
To start, the aerodynamics have a bit of a cross between the Huracán GT3 EVO and the Aventador SVJ. The hood features twin air intakes styled after the Huracán GT3 EVO, while fenders, fins, and air scoops are taken from the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO.
The huge carbon fiber rear wing is a unique design that shows elements of the SuperVeloce’s active rear wing but has a slightly different overall shape. It’s also got 3 mechanical settings that are manually set before use, unlike the SVJ’s active rear wing.
The 6.5-L naturally aspirated V12 has been tuned to produce 770 hp--more than the SVJ’s 759--and make 531 lb-ft of torque. That should the SC18’s 0-60 time around 2.7 seconds, and its top speed well in excess of 217 mph.
A new carbon fiber body and the use of “ultralight materials” brings weight down to SVJ levels, while 12 additional rear scoops on the engine cover assist with cooling. Lamborghini says it’s one of the lightest Aventadors ever made but declined to say just how much weight is saved from the new body.
The inside of the SC18 is covered in black Alcantara with red cross-stitching along with carbon fiber bucket seats. The exterior is all carbon fiber done in Grigio Daytona (grey) paint with red accents.
We’d love to see how fast this car will go around the Nurburgring, but it’ll all depend on what the new driver wants to do with it.
