Lamborghini launches 566kW racing car

Lamborghini's Squadra Corse motor racing division has launched its first single tailor-made vehicle and will probably not be the last, as the company says it paves the way for "more personalized development projects."

The SC18 is technically feasible, but we can hardly assume, with Lamborghini stating that it was designed primarily for use on the track.

For that, it features "extreme aerodynamics" in the form of a large carbon fiber wing with three trim levels, plus front air intakes, side and rear mudguards, fins and paddles inspired by the Huracán Evo GT3 race cars and Super Trophy.

It is also lighter than the Aventador, thanks to a new body of carbon fiber (in Daytona Gray with various details in red) and the extensive use of ultralight components.

Below the hood is the most powerful version of Lamborghini's 6.5-liter V12 vacuum cleaner, essentially in the same state as the Aventador SVR with 566kW delivered at 8500rpm and 720Nm at 6750.

Performance figures have not yet been released, but given the weight reduction, it is certainly possible for this rider on the road to win the SVR 2.8 seconds from 0-100 km / h.

The SC18 also gets some unique touches inside, including carbon fiber bucket seats, black Alcantara finish with red cross stitch and a telemetry system that measures "every aspect of performance" on the track.
