We've all heard tales about car aficionados buying machines for their offspring way before the latter are allowed to drive. And the most recent story of the kind was shown to a massive live audience at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, where Lamborghini introduced the SC18 Alston.

We're talking about a one-off that was bought by a collector, with the vehicle being intended as a gift for the future 18th birthday of his son, Alston.

Built by the Squadra Corse, the Italian automotive producer's racing arm, the project came with a financial side of around $7 million and, as is the case with such builds, uses the company's V12 platform as a starting point. It does come with a number plate, even though its main focus is the racetrack.

Now, since the buyer spent plenty of time with the said division and Centro Stile Lamborghini to perfect each and every detail of the car, it doesn't seem likely that he'll ever take the thing down the aftermarket route.

Of course, this doesn't mean tuners don't dream of getting their hands on this piece. And since we've established the chances of such an event taking place in the real world are as slim as they get, perhaps the virtual realm can help.

In fact, if you check out the social media post at the bottom of the page, you'll notice a rendering portraying a modded SC18.

There are three main ingredients in this custom recipe: the widebody kit, the slammed attire and, of course, a set of custom wheels. And I suggest taking the time to enjoy every little detail in the Instagram post. And I can see why they'd love such a creation over in Tokyo.

In case you're wondering, this piece of digital art comes from Khyzyl Saleem, a gear gead who lives to play with the rules.

P.S.: I'm sure many of you prefer the Lamborghini SC18 Alston in the form its maker intended, so you can check out the machine doing its thing at Goodwood in the YouTube video below.
