Lamborghini, the esteemed Italian supercar manufacturer, electrified the crowd at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed as they revealed their newest marvel, the Lamborghini SC63 Hybrid Racer Prototype. The Lamborghini Squadra Corse team designed this pioneering hybrid racing vehicle, aiming it squarely at the 2024 FIA World Endurance Championship and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Poised to tackle iconic races, the SC63 Hybrid Racer Prototype is set to compete in the 12 Hours of Sebring, the 24 Hours of Daytona, and the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Unmistakable Lamborghini DNA

At a casual glance, the SC63 may not immediately strike as a ‘Lamborghini.’ It complies with LMDh rules, but a deeper look reveals the undeniable Lamborghini DNA. Lamborghini’s Centro Stile design group masterfully weaved Lambo-like lighting elements into the sharply lined body panels, part of their recent design trend. The car, painted in striking Verde Mantis and donning a racing stripe honoring the Italian flag, guarantees an unmissable presence on the track.

Lamborghini collaborated with Liger to craft the monocoque chassis but left its distinctive mark on the design, infusing Countach-inspired NACA ducts and Revuelto wheel arches, among other components.

New Hybrid powered twin turbo V8

The SC63 is not only a feast for the eyes; it houses an engineering masterpiece under its hood. Lamborghini developed an entirely new twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine specifically for this racer. This engine boasts a ‘cold V’ configuration, with turbos mounted externally for optimal cooling, easy maintenance, and superior weight distribution.

Partnered with a class-required hybrid system, the total power output hits the regulated cap of 671 horsepower. The hybrid setup consists of a standard motor generator and battery controlled by a Bosch electronic control unit. While the LMDh rules prescribe a standard gearbox, Lamborghini customized the gear ratios to maximize performance.

Official Debut in 2024

Though they haven’t revved up on the racetrack yet, two SC63 race cars are gearing up for the coming season. One will battle it out in the 2024 FIA World Endurance Championship, while the other will participate in the North American Endurance Championship’s IMSA events. The Iron Lynx team, known for their Lamborghini expertise, will field both cars.

Factory drivers Mirko Bortolotti and Andrea Caldarelli and Formula 1 veterans Daniil Kvyat and Romain Grosjean will be at the wheel. Testing continues until the 2024 racing season when the SC63 will officially burst onto the scene.
