Designed by the Squadra Corse department, the Lamborghini Aventador SC20 made its debut today with both its dazzling design and its terrifically powerful performance. The Lamborghini Aventador SC20, which will get its power from the 6.5-liter atmospheric V12 engine, will have 770 horsepower and 720 Nm of torque. Its design inspiration is said to be taken from the Diablo VT Roadster, plus a few of its contemporary siblings like the Aventador Jota and Veneno Roadster, but its technology is drawn from more modern Lamborghini projects like the track-only Essenza SCV12 and Lambo's own Huracan Evo GT3 auto. These include the Diablo VT Roadster, Veneno Roadster, Concept S and the Aventador J. This is Lamborghini's second such one-off project, with the SC18 unveiled back in 2018 being the first. There's plenty of aerodynamic elements in play here, all created to channel air in a manner that optimises performance, while ensuring a comfortable open-air driving experience at high speeds.

One-off specials like this are usually more exercises in design than engineering, and so Lamborghini's familiar aesthetic has been applied to the extreme. Meanwhile, the front splitter and hood intakes are inspired by the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 racecar.

A wide carbon fiber wing and dual exhaust tips are present on the rear. This wild Lamborghini with tons of angles, scoops, vents, and strakes finished in Bianco Fu white paint contrasted by Blu Cephus and carbon fiber accents.

Filling the SC20's arches are 20-inch front and 21-inch rear centre-locking aluminium alloy wheels, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa performance tyres. The same shade is found in the interior, alternating with Nero Cosmus (black) and Bianco Leda (white).

Viewers of Friday night's Late Late Show were thrilled with the Dolly Parton tribute that opened the country music special. Tristan's first time meeting Parton was under less frightening circumstances but it still made a massive impact on him.

Bare carbon fiber on the dashboard, the firewall, the door panels and the center console hints at the SC20's lightweight construction.

All of that power is fed to all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Styled by Mitja Borkert and his colleagues at Lamborghini's Centro Stile design department, the vehicle uses carbon fiber for the monocoque chassis and bodywork and features a distinctive front splitter plus elongated, nostril-like air intakes on the hood-similar to those on the Huracán GT3 Evo-and a carbon-fiber rear wing that offers three configurations for varying levels of downforce.
