One-off Lamborghini goes topless

SC20 is open-cockpit car designed for the track but street legal


Lamborghini has unveiled its SC20, which is calls “a unique specimen of an open-top track car type-approved for road use,” adding that the car is the second one-off engineered by the Lamborghini motorsport department and designed by the company’s Centro Stile studio. 

“The car was created following the customer’s wishes,” the company said of the one-off creation.

“The common goal,” of the company and the customer, “was to build a unique vehicle, extreme in its design and performance, and able to combine aerodynamic solutions taken from racing Lamborghinis incorporating unprecedented lines and exclusive details.”

“Two years after the SC18 Alston, the SC20 was a new, intriguing challenge,” said Mitja Borkert, head of Lamborghini’s Centro Stile studio. “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.”

The car has a carbon-fiber body “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 company said. 

Powering the car to those speeds is a 6.5-liter Lamborghini Squadra Corse V12 engine rated at 770 horsepower, linked to a 7-speed transmission. The car has all-wheel drive with a central electronic differential.
