This is Lamborghini's latest one off creation. The all new SC18 ALSTON was created on a special customer request and it also begins the chapter of one off creations for future. Lamborghini's racing division, Squadra Corse and their design division, Centro Stile came together to create this road legal track monster! The SC18 has been finished in a Grigio Daytona shade with eye catching red accents across the body which enhance the highlights of the new design.
The SC18 uses the Aventador SVJ as a donor car however, it features a ton of new aero trickery borrowed from the Huracan GT3 EVO. The newly redesigned front end comprising of dual vented bonnet, new bumper design functions towards optimizing the air flow efficiency. The SC18 also make use of new and wide front and rear fenders for giving a more wider stance and appeal to the car.
The SC18 ALSTON is also equipped with a race inspired roof scoop which is integrated into the rear carbon fibre engine decklid. The engie under this carbon fibre cover is the same one which is found in the new SVJ. Powered by a 6.5 litre V12 motor, this car is capable of generating 770 hp and 720 Nm of torque.
As you move towards the back of the SC18, you are treated to one of the most visceral view. The new huge carbon fibre wing can be mechanically adjusted in 3 ways in order to meet the downforce demands on various tracks. The one-off example takes inspiration from Veneno and brings back the design of Y-shaped LED tail light bar. The rear bumper shows signs of SVJ character in the form of dual exhausts with bespoke tips and an ever more aggressive diffuser.
The SC18 ALSTON marks a new beginning for Lamborghini special projects. We can expect many more such one off models in the near future.
