Lamborghini has confirmed a Huracan LP 610-4 Super Trofeo racer is under development and will feature in all three of the Italian brand’s one-make championships.
It 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.
Based on the new Huracan – which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show last March – the Super Trofeo race variant is likely to feature a stripped-back, lightweight design, while retaining the standard car’s 5.2-litre V10 engine.
Generating 602bhp and 560Nm of torque, in production form, the Lamborghini gets its power down to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox, resulting in a 202mph top speed and a 0-62mph time of only 3.2 seconds.
Although set-up changes and a slight improvement on these figures are to be expected, Lamborghini isn’t giving anything away at the moment, aside from confirming development will be aided by test drivers Fabio Babini and Adrian Zaugg.
When the replacement is eventually launched, it will be the first time since the Super Trofeo series launched in May 2009 that a Gallardo hasn’t been used as the single car of choice.
