Lamborghini SC20: one-off creation is a roofless screamer

► Lambo’s second one-off creation
► 750bhp V12, all-wheel drive
► Penned by the Centro Stile

Lamborghini has made another bespoke creation for a keen and wealthy customer: this is the SC20. It’s the second one-off creation from the brand’s Centro Stile after the SC18.

It’s a super-aggressive, roofless hypercar designed for the road. Bodywork is all carbonfibre, with a front splitter like that of the Huracan EVO GT3 racer and side fins like that of the Essenza SCV12 track weapon. The rear wing is manually adjustable with three heights.

Power comes from the 6.5-litre V12 that’s so intrinsic to Sant’Agata’s hypercars these days, making 750bhp and 531lb ft. That’s sent through Lambo’s seven-speed ‘independent shifting rod’ gearbox (the same one used in the Aventador) to all four wheels. Speaking of wheels, the fronts are 20-inch and the rears are 21-inch.

Since it’s a one-off, Lambo hasn’t revealed the obviously large sum of money paid by the customer that approached them to make it. But the brand also says they were involved from the very beginning, looking over concept sketches from Lambo’s Centro Stile. ‘The chief sources of inspiration were the Diablo VT Roadster, Aventador J, Veneno Roadster and Concept S, and the result is a dramatic combination of creativity and racing attitude,’ says head of design at the facility, Mitja Borkert.
