Lamborghini's first one-off project has been unveiled in the form of the SC18.

Developed by the Squadra Corse, the SC18 has a new "extreme" aerodynamics package including a large rear wing fashioned out of carbon-fibre and featuring three adjustable mechanical elements.

As for the looks, the SC18 borrows from a few of Lambo's other special offerings: the taillights remind us of the Centenario, the headlights of the Aventador SVJ, and, of course, the styling is uniquely Lamborghini.

Mr Pence did not elaborate on U.S. plans for the Manus Island base or whether USA ships would be permanently stationed there. Lombrum, which was a major USA naval base during World War Two, holds a strategic position overlooking busy trade routes.

Starting up front, the SC18 has been equipped with air intakes that mimic those used on the Huracán GT3 EVO. The side and rear fenders, fins and airscoops are modelled on the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO.

Power comes from an awesome 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine, which makes 759 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque. Performance figures haven't been announced, but the SVJ is capable of hurtling from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds, and hitting 200km/h within 8.6 seconds. The Lamborghini SC18 has been commissioned by a customer in collaboration with the Centro Stile Lamborghini and built by Lamborghini's racing division, Lamborghini Squadra Corse. The company didn't mention numbers, but noted the auto has a carbon fiber body and other "ultralight materials". Red details add some interest to the exterior finish. The circular art bears Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires for maximum track attack capability aided by the onboard telemetry system that the SC18's owner can study in order to improve lap times between track sessions. The two-tone theme is continued in the cabin as there's carbon fiber bucket seats with black Alcantara upholstery and red contrast stitching. That's certainly a bonus and one that will ensure the vehicle gets plenty of use.
