What is this magnificent model? The Lamborghini SC18 Alston was designed in conjunction with the desires of the customer and the Lamborghini Centro Stile. In essence, there isn’t another vehicle quite like it, but you can find similarly aerodynamic exotic cars here at Lamborghini Austin, your Lamborghini dealership in Austin, TX. Keep reading below to learn about the exterior design, air intakes, and racing features of the Lamborghini SC18 Alston.
The exterior design of the Lamborghini SC18 Alston is the most head-turning aspect of this model. It is hard to miss. With a two-tone color scheme that highlights the aerodynamic elements of its design, the Lamborghini SC18 Alston looks like a car of the future. It is a road-approved model, but with its design being primarily for the track, the Lamborghini SC18 Alston has unique curves and air scoops that you won’t see on other vehicles. It has air intakes inspired by the Huracan GT3 EVO and fenders, fins, and air scoops in the style of the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO.
The Lamborghini SC18 Alston borrows a tradition from endurance races: It has twelve air intakes on its rear hood. The air intakes help to improve heat exchange with the vehicle’s engine. The importance of this for endurance races is obvious. You don’t want to overheat your engine over the course of multiple hours of high-performance driving. Even for shorter drives, it can help increase performance and lower your risk of engine failure, and honestly, it also looks pretty cool.
There is nothing more integral to racing on the track than having an aerodynamic design. That’s why you don’t ever see bulky SUVs or squarish cars on the racetrack. Instead, you see supercars like this one, which have a low center of gravity, rear wings, and sloped roofs. The wing on the Lamborghini SC18 Alston is a large rear carbon fiber wing that features three mechanical settings. Each setting is used to generate the most optimum aerodynamic load depending on the circuit being driven.
