Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo
2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP620-2 Super Trofeo
The all-new Lamborghini 2015 Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo was built from scratch for only one purpose: racing. It is the latest in the long line of Automobili Lamborghini’s motorsports bloodlines.
True to that bloodline, the Lamborghini 2015 Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo was built in collaboration with Dallara Engineering. Its founder, Giampaolo Dallara, was a Lamborghini engineer who developed the legendary Lamborghini Miura. Dallara Engineering has also developed Indy Car racing chasses. It knows race cars.
From a design standpoint, one of the more intriguing elements are the two extraction vents carved into the hood of the Lamborghini 2015 Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo. They are there to feed more air to the radiator. Cooling vents are also incorporated into the front fender and the side intakes are unique to this racing version of the Lamborghini Huracan.
The Lambo Huracan Super Trofeo also is shod with Pirelli tires engineered specifically for it. Aerodynamics, traction and downforce are also greatly enhanced with the rear wing that adjusts into 10 positions as well as front and rear diffusers and front air intakes that are adjustable.
Because this is at heart a race car, it needs an FIA-sanctioned roll cage. The electronics are stripped down to the bare minimum. The driver is also held in place with a special race seat with strong bolsters for proper positioning through the curves.
Just like the consumer, on-road version, the Lambo Huracan Super Trofeo is powered by the direct-injected V10 engine. Operated by a Motec control unit, it is capable of maximum 620 horsepower in this racing version. For added cooling capabilities, it also features a stronger radiator.
This is a much slimmer car than the consumer version. Its hybrid aluminum/carbon fiber chassis, thanks to a weight reduction regimen, weighs in at 2,800 lbs. That creates a weight/power ratio of 4.5 lbs. per horsepower. Weight is distributed 42 percent up front and 58 percent to the rear in this rear-wheel drive race car.
