Lamborghini has officially pulled the cover off its Huracán Super Trofeo race car.
The Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo is the Italian automaker’s newest GT3-specification race car that features an enhanced version of the production model’s 5.2-liter V10 engine. Though it only has 9 hp more than the standard model bringing the total to 611 hp, the Huracán Super Trofeo is 550 lbs lighter through the use of carbon fiber and aluminum.
One major difference between the race car and the production car is that 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. Naturally this brings up the idea that Lamborghini could be preparing a rear-wheel drive version of the Huracán road car.
As for the Super Trofeo variant, it was co-developed by Dallara Engineering and will be showcased at the Quail Motorsports gathering during the Pebble Beach Automotive Week.
“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.
