Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo revealed at Pebble Beach
Lamborghini has unveiled the Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo racecar at The Quail car show this weekend
Lamborghini has lifted the lid on a Huracan LP 610-4 Super Trofeo racer that will feature in all three of the Italian brand’s one-make championships.
Introduced to a crowd of millionaires at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering, the car will compete in the one make Trofeo series. Based on the Huracan it has radically redesigned body work, including a 10 position rear wing for improved downforce, while parts likely to be damaged in racing incidents have been replaced by quick release panels for faster and cheaper repairs. In fact, only the roof and doors of the road car remain.
The Huracan Super Trofeo uses the same V10 engine as the road-going Huracan only it’s been uprated by 10hp to 620hp. Also, that power is only sent to the rear wheels, instead of all four, and the dual clutch gearbox swapped for a single clutch type.
Weight has been cut from 1422kg to 1270kg, which is also 70kg less than the all-wheel-drive Gallardo Trofeo racecar, while the stripped out interior features a single seat and race-specification steeringwheel.
The racing Huracan signals the end of the outgoing Gallardo’s involvement in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo competitions, which currently run in Europe, Asia and North America.
