On sale for almost a year now, the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo race car has already had two special edition models.
Yes, we live in a world where some automakers offer special edition versions of their race cars and Lamborghini makes no exception. Following the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo 10th Edition released last summer, a Collector 2019 edition has been unveiled by Lamborghini Squadra Corse in Geneva — but not at the auto show.
Eligible for Lamborghini single-brand championships, the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo Collector 2019 race car debuted during an event held at the headquarters of prestigious watchmaker Roger Dubuis Manufacture, a Lamborghini Squadra Corse partner since 2017.
The special relationship between the two brands is obvious when looking at the livery of the special edition race car — the roof graphics imitate the design of the of the Excalibur Huracan Performante timepiece.
The limited edition watch evokes certain components of the 630 PS (621 hp) 5.2-liter V10 engine that powers both the road-going Huracan and Super Trofeo versions. For example, the watch’s “X” design is a reference to the X Frame that protects the car’s engine. Furthermore, the case back of the new timepiece limited to 88 units hints at the design of the car’s wheel rims, while the watch crown is inspired by the wheel’s single nut.
The race car also features “Roger Dubuis” lettering at the top of the windshield and on the central fin above the engine compartment. The black and gold livery was designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile and combines a matte black carbon fiber bodywork with gold accents on the front bumper, hood, sides, diffusor, and rear fin. The gold elements serve to highlight the extreme aerodynamics of the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo.
