No one could ever accuse the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ of being boring; but believe it or not, someone decided to take that killer styling and breathtaking V12 package, and turn it up 1000%.
Based on the Aventador SJV, the SC18 Alston comes with NASA-approved aerodynamics and despite being track-ready, it’s still road-legal – bringing two worlds together Raging Bull style.
Designed with assistance from the Centro Stile Lamborghini Customisation centre, the highlight reel starts with its extreme aerodynamics. Try ‘borrowed’ intakes from the Huracan GT3 EVO, a blade-like nose, and an enormous carbon fibre wing on for size.
Inside, there is Nero Ade Alcantara upholstery with Rosso Alala cross-stitching, but the real star here is the onboard telemetry system which help the driver/pilot chase down their lap times.
Without being pinned down by any motorsport regulations, the SC18 Alston makes buckets of brute power thanks to the Aventador’s V12 powerplant with output levels reaching 770 horsepower (574kW) and 531 pound-feet) of torque at 6,750 rpm. A variety of mechanical adjustments allow variable levels of rear downforce, while the new exhaust system provides the overall soundtrack and happy audio.
Although it’s pricey and out of our hands, we sure hope the owner opens this puppy up on the track at least once! At the very least he could make like Bruce Wayne and become a superhero.
