Lamborghini SC18 Alston, a unique model
The SC18 Alston is based on the Aventador SVJ and was developed by the Lamborghini’s race team.
The Race Team of Lamborghini was involved for the first time in the development of a road car on the indication of a lucky customer for driving on the track. The new model is called Lamborghini SC18 Alston and is based on the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, in turn derived from the Aventador S, which the Squadra Corse (prepares the Huracan GT3 Evo and Huracan Super Trofeo Evo race) has customized working on the aerodynamics, revisit in racing mode to improve the car’s performance on the track: the cooling openings in the front bonnet are inspired by the Huracan GT3 Evo, while the side fins, mudguards and the air intake on the roof come from the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo.
The Lamborghini SC18 Alston is also equipped with a large rear wing in carbon fiber adjustable on three levels, while the cooling of the powerful V12 engine is made more effective by twelve air intakes in the rear bonnet. For the SC18 Alston, the customer chose the Daytona gray exterior color, serigraphs and red details, interior in black Alcantara and carbon fiber shell seats. The contribution of the Squadra Corse will go beyond this car, because Lamborghini has announced that it intends to involve it from now on for other custom models voted to the track, which wealthy customers will be able to modify to obtain tailor-made cars.
At the mechanical level there are no new features between the Lamborghini SC18 Alston and the Aventador SVJ, a 770 bhp that represents the most extreme evolution of the Aventador, thanks to improvements not only for the V12 6.5 engine but also for the trim, steering and aerodynamics. The twelve-cylinder is the most powerful ever intended for a Lamborghini sales: it is the same 6.5 of the Aventador S, but gains 30 bhp and stretches up to 8,500 rpm. The declared performances are very high: for the 0-100 km / h it takes only 2.8 seconds. The Aventador SVJ is also equipped with a system of mobile appendages, able to improve the driving in circuit thanks to a series of fins controlled by electronics.
