New Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo race car unveiled

Lamborghini’s Super Trofeo one-make racing series has a new model, the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo.

With an updated aero kit and new livery due to a partnership with Swiss luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis, the new Huracán will debut in the Northern Spring (or Autumn for Oz) in 2018.

The racer will clearly be an improvement over previous cars, though current teams will be given the option to upgrade their existing Huracáns to the new spec.

Huracán Super Trofeos retain the road car’s 5.2-litre V10, which puts out a slightly improved 456kW on the track.

That power reaches the wheels after a brief travel through a six-speed sequential gearbox and, of course, the Pirelli P Zero Trofeos wrapped around the rear wheels.

Moving back from the scoop, the Super Trofeo Evo has a “shark fin” which Lamborghini says “improves dramatically the handling of the car at high speed corners.” Fin tapers off just under the car’s rear wing.

Lamborghini says the list price of the new Huracán Super Trofeo Evo is 235,000 Euros (plus tax) in Europe and Asia, and 295,000 USD in America. In Australian Dollars, that translates to 351,900 or 370,400 respectively.
