Lamborghini has unveiled its new Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo racing mode, designed to race in FIA’s GT3 class. Its specifications are very different to those of the outgoing Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo.
New Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo features an upgraded version of the standard Huracán LP 610-4‘s 5.2-liter V10 engine. The Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo gets a power bump from 602 hp to 620 hp. While the horsepower bump is modest, weight reduction is significant. Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo weighs 2800 pounds and it’s lighter than the standard car, thanks to a greater use of carbon fiber and aluminum and strict motorsports weight reduction. Lamborghini claims the racecar has a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.5 pounds per horsepower.
The redesigned Huracán Super Trofeo was developed in collaboration with Dallara Engineering, with direct involvement by founder Giampaolo Dallara. Next year the car will take part in the Blancpain Super Trofeo series, in all three (Europe, Asia and North America).
The Super Trofeo is rear-wheel drive while the standard Huracán is an all-wheel drive model, as was the previous Gallardo-based race car. “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, Lamborghini’s research and development boss.
The Huracán Super Trofeo marks a new benchmark for the race series. This stunning new beast has a very aggressive body kit and it features new front spoiler, a 10 position rear wing for improved downforce, roll cage, central exhaust tailpipe, racing wheel and a large digital display cluster. The front fenders have aerodynamic vents while the car is stepping on black 18-inch wheels with silck Pirelli tires.
