After a series of teaser, the Lamborghini Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo has been officially unveiled. The new GT3-spec racer is based on the road-going Lamborghini Huracan, and is set to debut at the upcoming Quail Motorsports Gathering.
Powered by an uprated 5.2-litre V10 engine found in the standard car, the Super Trofeo churns out 455kW (611hp). The race-spec engine is only 6kW (9hp) more powerful than the regular V10, but shifts 250kg less weight, thanks to extensive use of carbon fibre and aluminium components in the Super Trofeo’s chassis construction.
While the standard Huracan is all-wheel-drive, the Super Trofeo sends its power to the rear wheels only. This is a good indication that a rear-drive Huracan may be possible further down the track.
“The Huracán Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept. We believe it will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive,” said Maurizio Reggiani, head of Research and Development at Lamborghini.
