Lamborghini has just presented the SC20, a unique open-top track car type-approved for road use. Unlike most open-top supercars which actually come with a retractable roof, the Lamborghini SC20 doesn’t have one at all, which is why it is probably a one-off project.
The SC20, which is the second one-off model that was developed by Lamborghini’s motorsport department, features a carbon fiber body which was polished and slicked down by hand by the Lamborghini aerodynamic engineers to deliver optimal airflow for both performance and the cockpit’s occupants, ensuring comfortable open-air driving even at high speeds.
The pronounced front splitter is framed by two fins and the air intakes on the front hood are inspired by those of the Huracan GT3 EVO, while the sculpted body sides reflect the solutions adopted on the Essenza SCV12.
The muscular rear is topped by a large carbon fiber wing that can be set in three different positions: Low, Medium and High Load.
The SC20 also features exclusive details starting from the body colors on a Bianco Fu (white) base, on which the blue livery stands out. The same shade is found in the interior, alternating with Nero Cosmus (black) and Bianco Leda (white).
The most significant element of the passenger compartment is the visible carbon fiber used for the dashboard cover, rear wall, door panels, center console and steering wheel trim, in addition to the monocoque.
Carbon fiber is also used for the shells of the seats upholstered in Alcantara and leather. The door handles on the other hand, are machined from solid aluminum. Lastly, the air vents are created using 3D printing technology at the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory.
“The SC20 is a combination of sophisticated engineering, Italian craftsmanship, sportiness and advanced design. It is also an example of applying our V12 engine and carbon fiber to a radical open-top vehicle that unmistakably carries the Lamborghini DNA,” said Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer of Automobili Lamborghini.
The power is discharged to the ground by the four-wheel drive system with central electronic differential, and the Pirelli PZero Corsa tires are mounted on single-nut aluminum rims, 20 inches in front and 21 inches at the rear.
Giorgio Sanna, Head of Lamborghini Motorsport, commented, “The SC20 is one more technical and styling exercise that associates Squadra Corsa experience with Lamborghini design, masterfully interpreted by our Centro Stile based on the customer’s wishes, which was the focus of the project during the entire vehicle development and construction process.”
