Automobili Lamborghini unveiled its next-generation motorsports machine: the new HuracÃ¡n LP 620-2 Super Trofeo.
The car will debut in all three - Europe, Asia and North America - of the brand’s one-make 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series.
The redesigned HuracÃ¡n Super Trofeo was developed in collaboration with Dallara Engineering, with direct involvement by founder Giampaolo Dallara. Dallara’s history with Lamborghini dates back to 1963 when he worked as a Lamborghini engineer and later led the development of the legendary Miura.
The HuracÃ¡n Super Trofeo adopts the direct-injected V10 engine from the road car, delivering 620 horsepower in race trim, and a rear-drive set-up meant to accelerate the series racers’ transition into GT racing. The vehicle weighs an ultra-light 1,270 kg, attributed to the hybrid carbon fiber/aluminum chassis and strict motorsports weight reduction.
The aerodynamics provide better efficiency, traction and downforce using a ten-position rear wing, front and rear diffusers as well as adjustable front air intakes. The HuracÃ¡n Super Trofeo will be exclusively-equipped with Pirelli tires engineered specifically for this application.
The HuracÃ¡n Super Trofeo marks a new benchmark for the race series. ‘‘The HuracÃ¡n Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept,’’ said Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member and Director of Research and Development for Automobili Lamborghini. ‘‘We believe the car will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive.’
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo will be in Sepang, Malaysia 20th to 21st November.
