Written By:

Automobili Lamborghini have recently launched their new generation racer, the Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo. Designed by their motorsport department, it was unveiled a few days ago at Monterey Car Week, in California,USA.

This new car will debut in all three series of the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, taking place in Europe, Asia and North America.

The Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch keeping the fact that it is a racing car. The chassis of this car weighs just 43 kilograms, giving the car a kerb weight of just 1,270 Kg.

The body is made of composite materials and fast fitting bodywork which help keep the weight down. This new car also comes equipped with a new oil radiator to help boost performance.

The heart of this machine is a V10, direct injection engine that produces a massive 620 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 570 Nm at 6500 rpm. This engine is mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox.

The traction control and the ABS has 12 different settings, that is mounted directly on the steering wheel for different weather and track conditions.

The strictly rear wheel driven Huracán Super Trofeo will have Pirelli tyres, 305/660-18 at the front, and 315/680-18 at the back.

Other features in the car include a fully adjustable roll bar and two-way adjustable Ohlins dampers.
