The Huracán shows its hardcore side.
The new Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 has been criticized for being a bland supercar that understeers quite a bit and doesn’t excite as much as some of the other bulls in the stable. That may be the case with the road-going car, but it certainly isn’t with the racing version – the Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo.
Replacing the tried-and-true Gallardo is no easy task, but the motorsport engineers at Lamborghini and engineering partners, Dallara Engineering, were able to create a focused, track-spec car that improved upon its predecessor.
“The Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept. Every feature is engineered for sophisticated high performance, complying with the strictest motorsport safety standards,” said Maurizio Reggiani of Lamborghini Research and Development Department and Motorsport Activities.
Starting off with the chassis, the new Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo is 45-percent stiffer and uses a carbon/aluminum hybrid frame with modified geometries to make room for a new radiator and racing transmission at the rear. A roll cage that weighs in at just 95 lbs. contributes to the dry weight of just 2,800 lbs and a 42/58 weight distribution. New fully-adjustable anti-roll bars and two-way adjustable Ohlins dampers help ensure the exclusively-equipped Pirelli tires measuring 305/660-18 up front and 315/680-18 at the rear achieve maximum grip. In terms of electronics, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo boasts a new MOTEC M182 control unit to display data on the dashboard TFT display while traction control, Bosch Motorsport ABS, and other systems control other aspects. In all, the system boasts 12 different settings that can be activated via the steering wheel for specific track and weather conditions.
Since 1963, Lamborghini has worked with Gian Paolo Dallara to develop cars such as the iconic Miura. With the Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, the partnership goes even further.
“For Dallara Engineering, it has been very rewarding to be involved in the aerodynamic and body development of a high performance car such as the Huracán Super Trofeo. From my personal point of view it has been for me a kind of ‘homecoming’,” said Giampaolo Dallara. “50 years ago, Lamborghini gave me the opportunity to challenge myself in ambitious and successful projects, and this new collaboration allows me to feel part of a company in which I have experienced moments of intense personal and professional achievement.”
The bodywork and aerodynamics for the Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo was developed in partnership with Dallara Engineering. The entire body is made from composite materials and integrates ‘fast fittings’ for quicker changes during pit stops.
The same direct-injection, 5.2-liter V-10 engine found in the road-going car is utilized in the Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo and sits on new supports, but with a few extra goodies. Output grows to 612 horsepower (620 CV) and 420 lb-ft. of torque thanks to the new control unit and other motorsport upgrades. Power is sent to the rear wheels though a three-disc XTrack sequential gearbox with electronic actuator designed by the Magneti Marelli Motorsport division, and a three-disc clutch.
The interior of the Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo wears a special Nero Ade Alcantara color that adorns the dashboard, central tunnel, OMP race-spec steering wheel, shifter, and seats for greater grip and control.
The new Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo made its official track debut in July with test drivers Fabio Babini and Adrian Zaugg along with the Young Drivers Program pilots. The newest Lamborghini racer was officially unveiled to the public at the 2014 Monterey Car Week and will see its first races in the Europe, Asia, and North America series as part of the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo.
