Italian supercar maker Lamborghini has finally unveiled the Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo at this year’s edition of “The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering.” The track-only Huracan has been developed in tandem with Dallara Engineering with direct input from Gian Paolo Dallara who also was involved in the legendary Lamborghini Miura’s development. The Huracan Super Trofeo features a more aerodynamic wide body with adjustable front air intakes and front and rear diffusers. The rear wing features no less than ten positions. The shoes for the vehicle has been specially designed by Pirelli.
‘‘The Huracán Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept,’’ said Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member and Director of Research and Development for Automobili Lamborghini. ‘‘We believe the car will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive.’’
When compared to the road-legal Huracan, the naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine in the Super Trofeo churns out an extra 10 PS, which takes the total power output to 620 PS. All this power is sent to the rear axle. With a number of weight saving excercises undertaken by Lamborghini, the vehicle is a whole 151 kg lighter than the Huracan and now tips the scales at 1,271 kg with a weight/power ratio of 4.5 lbs/PS.
The vehicle will take part in next year’s Blancpain Super Trofeo series but it will not compete in the same class as its predecessor, the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo.
