A couple of the very first Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeos recently headed out onto the track at Sepang for testing and to fully unleash the full performance potential of Lamborghini’s latest and greatest dedicated racing car.
As you probably noticed from the name, the Huracan Super Trofeo is rear-wheel drive and also a touch more power than the road-going car. As a matter of fact, it now has 611 hp instead of the 602 hp of the standard model. Of more importance however, is the fact that it is rear-wheel drive. This is quite a surprise considering that the existing Gallardo Super Trofeo and Huracan are all wheel drive. As a result of Lamborghini utilising rear-wheel drive for the Huracan Super Trofeo it indicates that they are likely to do the same for select road-going variants.
The car was co-developed by Dallara Engineering and when speaking about it, Lamborghini’s research and development boss Maurizio Reggiani said, “The Huracán Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept. We believe it will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive.”
