Developed from a real racing concept unveiled at The Quail
The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering 2014 - considered to be one of the most prestigious motoring events in the whole world - was the venue for Automobili Lamborghini’s launch of the new Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo.
Developed from real racing concept, this model will also debut in the European, Asian and North American one-make 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series.
“The Huracán Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept. We believe the car will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive,” said Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member and Director of Research and Development for Automobili Lamborghini.
The Huracán Super Trofeo was redesigned and developed in collaboration with Dallara Engineering with Giampaolo Dallara being directly involved in the project. This alliance between Dallara and Lamborghini dates back to 1963, through the development of the Miura up until today.
The Huracán Super Trofeo has a direct-injected V10 engine that delivers 620 PS in race trim, and a rear-drive set-up meant to accelerate the series racers’ transition into GT racing. The hybrid carbon fiber/aluminum chassis trims the vehicle’s weight down to 1270 kg, providing a power-to-weight ratio of 2.05 kg/hp.
The ten-position rear wing, front and rear diffusers as well as adjustable front air intakes provide better aerodynamics, efficiency, traction and downforce. Lightweight racing spec electronic cables and connections come as standard for the Super Trofeo and are connected to a Motec M182 control unit. The unit controls data, gear changes and the new TFT display that is placed on the dashboard. The traction control and Bosch Motorsport ABS has 12 different settings and can be adjusted via controls on the steering wheel.
The Huracán Super Trofeo will be exclusively equipped with Pirelli tires developed specifically for this application. The tires measure 305/660/18 at the front while the rear tires measure at 315/680/18.
Also at The Quail, Lamborghini presented the Aventador LP 700-4 in a new version by Ad Personam. The vehicle is on display to highlight Lamborghini’s personalization program.
Ad Personam clients can order their Lamborghini with personalized materials, custom colors and exclusive trim for exterior and interior fitment.
