Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo makes Global Debut at ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering’

Carmel, California 15th August 2014 -- Automobili Lamborghini unveiled its nextgeneration motorsports machine: the new Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo. The car will debut in all three (Europe, Asia and North America) of the brand’s one-make 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series.

The Huracán Super Trofeo marks a new benchmark for the race series. ‘‘The Huracán Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept,’’ said Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member and Director of Research and Development for Automobili Lamborghini. ‘‘We believe the car will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive.’’

The redesigned Huracán Super Trofeo was developed in collaboration with Dallara Engineering, with direct involvement by founder Giampaolo Dallara. Dallara’s history with Lamborghini dates back to 1963 when he worked as aLamborghini engineer and later led the development of the legendary Miura. The Huracán Super Trofeo adopts the direct-injected V10 engine from the road car, delivering 620 horsepower in race trim, and a rear-drive set-up meant to accelerate the series racers’ transition into GT racing. 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. The Huracán Super Trofeo will be exclusively-equipped with Pirelli tires engineered specifically for this application. Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo - North America -- Upcoming Dates: August 22-24 (Virginia International Park, Alton, VA); October 1-4 (Road Atlanta, Atlanta, GA); and November 20-21 (Sepang, Malaysia, World Finals).

Also at The Quail, Lamborghini presented its Aventador LP 700-4 in a new version by Ad Personam. The vehicle, which will be shown as well at Concorso Italiano and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, highlighting Lamborghini’s ‘‘made-to-order’’ program. Clients of Ad Personam-equipped cars avail themselves of personalized materials, custom colors and exclusive trim for exterior and interior fitment.
