Lamborghini Reveals Sinister Huracán Super Trofeo Evo2 Racer

The Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo was already a Pro-Am monster; a true production-based race car purpose-built to race in Lamborghini’s own globe-trotting one-make series. An ultimate track toy, you might say, although toy doesn’t do the beautiful violence of a Huracán Super Trofeo in action justice. Yes, it’s not as intense as the Huracán GT3, but Lamborghini thinks of it as a stepping stone for some amateur drivers to graduate to. But it’s a race car, and race cars evolve. Thus we have the new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo2, featuring advanced aerodynamic changes and revised styling, along with a few other tweaks.

Like its Evo (and pre-Evo) predecessor, the Super Trofeo Evo2 is motivated by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10, which makes a very healthy 620 hp. A six-speed sequential gearbox handles shifting duties. There do not appear to be any hardware changes in terms of the powertrain—nor do any appear to be needed.

But there are significant changes to the bodywork. The front fascia is heavily revised, with a more bifurcated design that’s highlighted in the example shown here with a bright orange stripe that gives the Evo2 a stylistic link to the Huracán STO. Larger intakes sprout out of the rear fenders, too, while smaller, angrier-looking headlights are flanked by air curtain vents. For the full story, check out this article from Motor Trend.
