Lamborghini has finally revealed the motorsport version of its Huracan supercar, which will see action in the Italian carmaker's own one-make Blancpain Super Trofeo series. It will effectively replace the modified Gallardo that the series's teams have been using since 2009.
Developed in collaboration with Dallara Engineering, the Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo adopts the same direct-injection V10 engine used by the road car, but with its power slightly bumped up by 10hp, putting all 620hp down to the rear wheels. With the race car weighing a mere 1,270kg thanks to its hybrid carbon-fiber and aluminum chassis, the car's power-to-weight ratio is a scant 2kg/hp. A 10-position rear wing, front and rear diffusers, and adjustable front air intakes improve the car’s aerodynamic efficiency even further.
"The Huracan Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept," said Auotomobili Lamborghini board member and director for research and development Maurizio Reggiani. "We believe the car will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive."
