Meet the 2015 Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo; set to debut concurrently in all three of the racing series' (Europe, Asia and North America) next year.
Co-developed by racing specialists Dallara Engineering, the Super Trofeo uses a tuned version of the road car’s 5.2 litre V10 petrol engine, lifting power from 448 to 463kW.
The racer is rear-wheel drive - as indicated by the “-2” in the car’s lengthy name – and features a ten-position rear wing, front and rear diffusers and adjustable front air intakes.
The ‘regular’ Huracan can accelerate from rest to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds and 200km/h in 9.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 325km/h.
Given the Super Trofeo version’s relatively light 1274kg weight (thanks to rear- instead of all-wheel-drive), it’s likely the racer will be able to top these figures.
A hybrid carbon-fibre/aluminium composite is used to construct the chassis, and the Super Trofeo will race on specially-engineered Pirelli tyres.
“The Huracan Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept,” Lamborghini’s Maurizio Reggiani said.
‘‘We believe the car will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive.’’
At this stage, it appears the 2015 Blancpain Endurance series will kick-off with the Monza three-hour event, scheduled for April 12.
