Lamborghini Squadra Corse has brought out the new Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2, the latest racecar version of the Huracán. The new model will be used in the three continental Lamborghini motor sport series, starting in 2022.
Making the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 the most high-performance version ever to race in the one-make series (which in 2021 contested its 13th season) are radical aerodynamic refinements and an uncompromising design created by Lamborghini Centro Stile.
“Seven years have passed since we introduced the first Huracán Super Trofeo at Pebble Beach, and now Squadra Corse is adding a new chapter to its history,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Huracán is one of the biggest bestsellers in the history of the brand, and the Super Trofeo has additionally helped to increase its success.”
Available at Lamborghini Philippines is the road-going Huracán EVO, which forms the basis for the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2. As the amplified version of the Huracán, the Huracán EVO is equipped with an uprated 5.2-liter, naturally aspirated V10 engine that produces 640 hp at 8,000 rpm and 600 Nm at 6,500 rpm. This engine, which emits a more emotional sound as supplied by titanium intake valves and a new lightweight exhaust system, allows the all-wheel-drive Huracán EVO to accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and to 200 km/h in 9.0 seconds. Top speed is over 325 km/h.
The Huracán EVO features rear-wheel steering, torque vectoring and the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata that controls the car’s dynamic systems and set-up to anticipate the next move and needs of the driver. The enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering system ensures agility at low speed, as well as stability during high-speed cornering and under braking. Three driving modes—Strada, Sport, Corsa—can be selected via the Anima controller.
In the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2, Squadra Corse and Centro Stile focused on the racecar’s aerodynamics and design as it anticipates styling elements that will debut on Lamborghini’s road cars in the coming years. Among the racecar’s radical changes are new high-intensity full LED light clusters with a hexagonal design, a pronounced “omega” lip that joins the carbon-fiber fins, redesigned air curtain intakes, a minimalist carbon-fiber rear wing, LED taillight clusters that pay tribute to the design of the Countach, and reshaped diffuser fins.
“When we approached the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 project, we immediately thought of the concept of ‘Racing in style’—that is, a combination of the typical aggressiveness of the Huracán racing cars and the classic stylistic features of Lamborghini’s DNA,” said Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini Head of Design.
“In addition, the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 represents a futuristic aesthetic approach that partially anticipates the design elements of the next range of road cars,” he stressed.
More than 950 drivers have raced at the most prestigious tracks in the world in the Super Trofeo series since 2009. For Lamborghini, the Super Trofeo serves as the best testing ground for technical and aerodynamic solutions for both road cars and GTs. The 400th Huracán racing car was produced in April.
