Remember the Gallardo Super Trofeo? That was an all-wheel drive car with 570 horsepower. The new Huracán Super Trofeo on the other hand sends all its 620 horses to the rear wheels. Somewhere, Valentino Balboni is smiling right now.
Built to participate in all three series of the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo and unveiled at Pebble Beach, the racing Huracán is a much more serious car than the beefed up Gallardo it replaces.
The roll cage extends to the rear axle, which makes for an extremely rigid (39870 Nm/deg) chassis. The carbon/aluminum frame was modified so it can house an improved radiator up front and Xtrac's six-speed sequential gearbox at the rear. The dry weigh of the car is only 2,799 pounds, with a weight distribution of 42/58.
Dallara Engineering worked on the composite body which creates 15% less drag and 43% more downforce. Everything from the rear wing to the front and rear diffusers and front air intake ducts is fully adjustable.
A very clever Motec control unit gets 620 horsepower from the direct-injected V10 and sends it to the rear axle though the six-speed sequential, kept in line by a customizable traction control system and the Bosch Motorsport ABS. The rest of the electronics comes from Magneti Marelli's Motorsport division. The car also has a TFT display and a multifunctional steering wheel from OMP.
Adjustable anti-roll bars and two-way adjustable Ohlins dampers complete the kit with monstrous six/four pot Brembos and sticky Pirellis (305/660-18 at the front, and 315/680-18 at the back).
The Huracán Super Trofeo also has hydraulic power steering, otherwise known as proper steering.
Inside, it's Alcantara.
Did I mention it is rear-wheel drive?
