Goodwood’s Festival of Speed witnessed the first sighting of Lamborghini’s SC63 hypercar for racing in the World Endurance Championship and the American IMSA next year.
The SC63 is part of Lamborghini’s complete electrification blueprint, as announced in 2022.
Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann called the SC63 ‘the most advanced racing car ever produced by Lamborghini.’
Iron Lynx Motorsport Lab, an Italian auto-racing team based in Cesena, Emilia-Romagna, will run the cars.
Currently, they run Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo 2 sports cars in the IMSA SportsCar Championship and GT World Challenge Europe.
The chassis is a Ligier development, and the design is from Lamborghini’s in-house team, Centro Stile.
Drivers so far confirmed include Romain Grosjean, Andrea Caldarelli, Mirko Bortolotti and former Formula 1 driver Daniil Kvyat.
The design has taken hints from the new Lamborghini Revuelto, launched in March 2023, when Lamborghini announced their first plugin hybrid system, the Revuelto as the successor to the Lamborghini Aventador.
A bit of context.
The Lamborghini Revuelto is the name of a bull that was a true rebel.
The SC63 is a moniker comprising SC for Squadra Corse and the 63 from Lamborgini’s formation in 1963.
