As expected, Lamborghini has teased its upcoming Huracán Super Trofeo race car.

Set to compete in next year’s Super Trofeo racing series, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 race car has been undergoing testing with the help of the Italian automaker’s Squadra Corse division. Initial shakedown is underway at the Vallelunga race track in Italy.

The Huracán Super Trofeo race car will likely be powered by the same 5.2-liter V10 engine found in the production model, but expect power output to exceed the factory’s 602-hp figure. As with all Lamborghini race cars, the Huracán variant will benefit from aggressive body modifications for increased downforce.

The Italian automaker has also confirmed that both the Gallardo and Huracán will share the grid next season, but will race in different classes.

“The first shakedown is always a very special moment,” said Giorgio Sanna, Lamborghini’s chief test driver and new head of Squadra Corse in a statement. “I’ve followed the development phase step by step in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and we are all enthusiastic about this very important moment.”
