At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, Lamborghini Squadra Corse took the wraps off the SC63, the LMDh racer—almost ready to compete in 2024 in races including 24 Hours of Le Mans, 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring, in partnership with the Italian team Iron Lynx.
The SC63 has Lamborghini-typical styling with Y-shapes wherever possible. You can also notice gaps, gapes and slits wherever possible. The NACA duct on the side was apparently inspired by the air intake of the Countach. And, the livery is inspired by the branding seen on the Huracán GT3 challenger. If I understood the official statement correctly, two SC63s will be built, painted in Verde Mantis green, with a black Nero Noctis strip over the cabin, front hood, carbon diffuser, rear fin and wing.
The cars will also feature green, white and red Italian Tricolore colors, and will carry the branding of long-time partner of Lamborghini, Swiss watch manufacturer Roger Dubuis.
The SC63’s combustion engine is an all-new, in-house developed 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 that is said to be specifically developed for racing purposes. The engine has a ‘cold V’ configuration, meaning the turbos are mounted outside the vee angle of the engine for easy cooling and servicing benefits, while also helping optimize the car’s centre of gravity. As you might know, the hybrid system output as per the regulations is limited to 500 kW or 680 metric hp.
