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,” saidMaurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer of Automobili Lamborghini.
Powering the Lamborghini SC20 is 6.5-litre V12 engine that makes 770 hp and 720 Nm of torque, paired with an optimized seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) gearbox.
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.”
After all these years, Ducati and Lamborghini have finally decided to join forces, and the result is nothing short of mindblowing. Yes, say hello to the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini, inspired by the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37.
Limited to just 630 units, the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini was conceived by transferring the basic components of the Sian’s design to the motorcycle world and redesigning the parts that most characterize the Diavel.
These parts include the lightweight forged wheels, air intakes and radiator covers made of carbon fibre, and superimposed floating elements on the main structure.
The livery of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini on the other hand, rocks the same paint as the Siàn FKP 37, with the bodywork characterized by the “Gea Green” colour, while the frame, the seat tail and the forged rims are embellished with the use of “Electrum Gold” colour.
There is also a touch of “Ducati Red” colouring on the Brembo M50 radial mount brake calipers.
Other important identifying elements of Lamborghini design are the hexagon and the “Y” motif. This special version of the Diavel pays homage to the former in the shape of the exhaust and the latter thanks to the aesthetic details created on the seat.
In addition to the aforementioned radiator covers and air intakes, the silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover and headlight frame are also made of carbon.
In case you’re wondering, the “63” on the tank represents the year 1963 when Lamborghini was founded. The “63” also represents the 630 units of the Diavel Lamborghini that will be produced. Every bike will also come with a serial number each.
Owners of the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini can also purchase an exclusive helmet with special graphics coordinated with the bike, designed by the Centro Stile Ducati.
Last but not least, we have the special TFT display in which both brands’ logos and the silhouette of the Diavel Lamborghini will appear upon startup.
Powering the Diavel Lamborghini is the 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT engine with variable timing. This Euro 5 homologated engine is capable of delivering 162 hp and 129 Nm of torque.
Lamborghini has presented what could be the most extreme version of the Huracan yet – called the Lamborghini Huracán STO (Super Trofeo Omologata).
The Huracan STO is essentially a road-homologated super sports car inspired by the racing heritage of Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s one-make race series with Huracán Super Trofeo EVO, as well as its three-time 24 Hours of Daytona-winning and two-time 12 Hours of Sebring- winning Huracán GT3 EVO.
Powering the Lamborghini Huracan STO is a naturally aspirated V10 engine kicking out 640 hp and 565 Nm of torque, enabling the rear-wheel driven supercar to accelerate to 100km/h in just 3.0 seconds, and from naught to 200 km/h in 9.0 seconds while hitting a top speed of 310 km/h.
With an increased wheel track, stiffer suspension bushing, specific anti-roll bars and Lamborghini’s MagneRide 2.0, the STO delivers all the emotion of a racecar while providing a comfortable road experience. Further complementing the whole package are features like the Lamborghini rear-wheel steering and a more direct and fixed steering ratio.
There are three new driving modes to choose from – STO, Trofeo and Pioggia. While the default is STO mode, Trofeo is more track focused, while Pioggia is basically rain mode.
The Huracán STO sports an entirely new exterior design with many interesting features. For example, the front bonnet, fenders and the front bumper comprise of one single component in order to save weight.
And then we have the new air ducts on the front bonnet, a new front splitter, newly designed underbody, a new rear fender derived from the Super Trofeo EVO, a revised rear hood with an integrated air scoop, air deflectors integrated in the rear bonnet’s frame, an integrated ‘shark fin’ on the rear bonnet, as well as a manually adjustable new rear wing.
Thanks to all these features, the Huracán STO’s overall airflow efficiency is improved by 37% and a significant downforce increase of 53% is reached over the Huracán Performante.
At a dry weight of 1,339 kg, the Huracán STO’s weight is reduced by 43 kg compared to the already lightweight Huracán Performante.
The Huracán STO incorporates a windscreen 20% lighter than the Huracán Performante as well, and features magnesium rims for the highest strength-to-weight ratio, saving further weight over aluminum alloys with the same load factor.
The interior of the Huracán STO on the other hand, reflects the lightweight persona of the exterior with an extensive use of carbon fiber features throughout the cockpit. Owners will get sport seats in full carbon fiber, a generous dose of Alcantara upholstery with Lamborghini’s Carbonskin, carbon fibre floor mats, carbon fibre door panels with a door latch as opener, and a rear arch with four-point seatbelts and a newly designed front trunk for helmet storage.
Owners of the Huracán STO can fully personalize both the exterior and interior of their race car- on-the-road via a rich Ad Personam personalization program, with limitless paint and trim combinations as well as race-style vinyls.
The concept of a personalized livery is inherent in the design of the Huracán STO, just as Huracán Super Trofeo race cars line up in their unique colors and designs on the starting grid.
Sorry to burst the bubble, folks, but this actually has nothing to do with Deepavali.
Automobili Lamborghini today presented the Huracán EVO Fluo Capsule – a new collection of bright and bold colors for the V10 super sports car, realized in a matt paint exterior with complementary interior color and trim options.
Inspired by the tradition of vibrant colors that enhance the inimitable lines and shape of Lamborghini models, the Huracán EVO Fluo adopts a striking exterior bicolor scheme that animates the car’s dynamism and underscores its presence on the road.
Five exterior and interior configurations in Verde Shock (green), Arancio Livrea (orange), Celeste Fedra (blue), Arancio Dac (orange) and Giallo Clarus (yellow) combine with a matt black roof, front bumper and side skirts.
Details of the matt black components are picked out in the new fluo colors, such as a colored line on the black wing mirrors and vertical colored lines on the rear splitter, lending the car a sporty yet glamorous personality.
In the full-black interior, new sports seats are optional alternatives to the standard comfort seats, in Alcantara or leather unicolor with an EVO sportivo trim.
The Start & Stop button cover and the Lamborghini shield embroidered on the headrest are finished in one of the five new fluorescent colors matching the exterior tones.
The result is a highly technical interplay of contrasts, unlocking the expression of those who dare to be different in a young and stylish piece of street art.
The Huracán EVO Fluo Capsule is available on the Huracán EVO model year 2021.
Lamborghini has just taken the wraps off Sián Roadster – a limited edition, open-top hybrid super sports car engineered around Lamborghini’s iconic V12 engine with a few cool hybrid features.
While key features on the exterior include the iconic periscopio line inspired by the first Countach, long sculptured contours and characteristic aero wings, a low front with integrated carbon fiber splitter, as well as the brand’s iconic Y-shape headlights.
According to Lamborghini, airflow is directed through the front splitters and through the front bonnet, through the side air intakes and outlets and over the rear spoiler, with no loss of aerodynamic efficiency from the roadster’s roofless design.
And then we have the active cooling vanes on the rear which use unique materials-science technology patented by Lamborghini.
The vanes, which are triggered by the reaction of smart-material elements to the temperature generated by the exhaust system, cause them to rotate and provide an elegant and lightweight cooling solution.
The extreme and strong rear of the car incorporates Lamborghini’s evocative hexagon design, including six hexagonal taillights inspired by the Countach. The rear wing is integrated within the profile and extends out only during the driving to enhance the performance.
The Sián Roadster’s hybrid system provides the highest power possible via the lightest solution, combining the V12 engine with a new powertrain. A 48-volt e-motor, delivering 34 hp, is incorporated into the gearbox to provide immediate response and improved performance. The e-motor also supports low-speed manoeuvers such as reversing and parking with electric power.
Located in the bulkhead between cockpit and engine, the Sian Roadster’s electric system with the supercapacitor and e-motor, which weighs only 34 kg, is actually a world-first technology that is capable of storing ten times the power of a lithium-ion battery.
The system also ensures perfect weight distribution. Three times more powerful than a battery of the same weight and three times lighter than a battery producing the same power, the powertrain delivers a remarkable weight-to-power ratio of 1.0 kg/hp.
This advanced technology, combined with the V12 engine, kicks out a total output of 819 hp and reaches a top speed of over 350 km/h. 0 to 100 time stands at an impressive 2.9 seconds.
The Lamborghini Sián Roadster also incorporates a highly sophisticated regenerative braking system, which fully charges the Sián’s energy storage system every time the vehicle brakes.
The innovative system also delivers instant acceleration in low gears, with improved traction force provided by the combination of V12 engine and hybrid system.
That being said, only 19 units of the Sian Roadster were produced and unfortunately, all of them were sold even before the world knew it existed.
