Lamborghini has taken the wraps off the new Huracan Super Trofeo EVO.
Developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO builds on the success of its predecessor by adopting an improved aerodynamics package which aims to “maintain the same high downforce of the previous model while achieving higher overall aerodynamic efficiency.”
In order to achieve this goal, the company worked with Dallara Engineering to develop a new carbon fiber body kit which helps to improve stability while also reducing drag. The changes are pretty dramatic as Lamborghini says all the components have been “completely redesigned” except the front splitter, flat floor, and rear diffuser.
Thanks to these modifications, as well as the addition of a roof hatch, the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO has “8% less resistance to forward motion” than its predecessor. This helped the model to lap the Monza track in 1:43.3 which is 1.5 seconds faster than the previous model.
Motivation is provided by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 620 PS (456 kW). It is connected to a six-speed sequential shift transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. This enables the car to hit an electronically limited top speed of 280 km/h (173 mph).
The model will enter competition next spring and the car will be eligible to compete in the one-make Lamborghini Super Trofeo series. The Huracan can also compete in the Gran Turismo Championship in both Endurance races as well as the GT Cup category.
Pricing starts at $295,000 in the United States and €235,000 in Europe. Owners of the current Huracan Super Trofeo will also have the option of purchasing the new aerodynamic package.
