Lamborghini Teases Huracan Super Trofeo Race Car
Late last year, Lamborghini ended the long tease for its Gallardo replacement, the 2015 Huracan. Now, the Italian sports car maker is teasing the race-only Super Trofeo variant. Like the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the Huracan will be a ready-to-race model built specifically for the Super Trofeo one-make racing series.
The Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo took to the track for its first shakedown run recently at Piero Taruffi Autodromo Vallelunga near Rome, Italy. There, chief test driver for Lamborghini research and development Giorgio Sanna began fine-tuning the car for the upcoming Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series season, which sees races in Europe, Asia, and North America. In 2015, both Gallardo and Huracan Super Trofeo racers will share the grid, but will race in separate classes.
It's difficult to see just what Lamborghini did for the Super Trofeo version of the Huracan through its military camo wrap, but we can likely expect aerodynamics to be improved. On the previous Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo, aerodynamics were said to be improved by 120 percent over the road-going car, while cooling was also enhanced.
We should know more about the one-make Lamborghini race car closer to its debut, but for now this teaser gives us our best look at the upcoming motorsports variant.
