About: Automobili Lamborghini unveiled its next generation motorsports machine: the new Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo and Jordan Shiraki from ShirakiPhoto was there to cover the delivery of these amazing machines.
The Huracán Super Trofeo adopts the direct-injected V10 engine from the road car, delivering 620 horsepower in race trim, a rear wheel drive set up and a brand new sequential shifter. The vehicle weighs an ultra-light 2,800 lbs, attributed to the hybrid carbon fiber/aluminum chassis and strict motorsports weight reduction. The weight/power ratio is 4.5 lbs/hp.
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. In fact, the only exterior body piece that the SuperTrofeo shares with its road going counter part is its headlights.
