Customer car uses same set-up as Aventador SVJ with V12 delivering 759bhp and 531lb ft

Lamborghini’s racing division, Squadra Corse, has revealed its first, one-off model, called the SC18, which draws heavily from the Super Trofeo and GT3 racing.

Built for a customer, the Aventador-based car paves the way for further personalised projects for motorsport customers, according to Lamborghini.

The SC18 is roadworthy but has been created primarily for use on the track and features “extreme aerodynamics, developed specifically for this model and derived from Squadra Corse’s experience in competition”, claimed the maker.

The front hood has air intakes similar to the Huracán GT3 Evo, while the sides and rear have fenders, fins and air scoops inspired by the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo.

There is also a large carbonfibre wing with three mechanical adjustments and 12 air intakes on the rear hood.

The SC18 uses the same powertrain as the recently revealed Aventador SVJ, with the V12 delivering 759bhp at 8500rpm and 531lb ft of torque at 6750rpm. No performance figures were disclosed but expect it to beat the SVJ’s 0-62mph time of 2.8sec.

Inside, the carbonfibre bucket seats have black Alcantara and red stitching. The wheels are 20in at the front and 21in at the rear with specially developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres and a telemetry system to measure track performance.

Motorsport divisions such as Squadra Corse are a growing trend in the supercar sector with rivals Ferrari and McLaren both offering similar programmes for customers.

Lamborghini, what are they known for?, they’re known for great design, Cars that look different to others, don’t follow shape wise, always different, remember the Sesto Elemento?, it had a great power to weight ratio, so, why not?, why no Koenigsegg,Hennessy ?, how about a Lambo to go after the Chiron?, wouldn’t that be a prospect?
