The Zyrus LP1200 is one angry Lambo.
Lamborghini is on a hot streak: we've recently revealed what the hyper SCV12 will look like without all the camouflage, and there's even a video of what it sounds like. The Sian Roadster could also be making an appearance this week. In the meantime, we get to drool over this Norwegian Lambo that will blow the doors off of most factory-spec hypercars. The Zyrus Lamborghini LP1200 is based on a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo, and gets a ton of custom parts thrown at it, with the end result being something truly special.
The Zyrus Lamborghini LP1200 is a hypercar created by Norwegian tuner Zyrus Engineering. The company announced last year that it would start on this project, but with Covid-19 slowing everything down, the company has only recently got to work on this crazy machine.
The Zyrus Lamborghini LP1200 is being created to compete in the open class of the Norwegian Extreme GT Championship where cars regularly makeover 1,000 horsepower. According to Zyrus, 527 parts on the car have been redesigned, and the body is made out of carbon fiber, with each panel guaranteed to be lighter than the one it replaces. The aero kit consists of a massive front splitter, rear diffuser, and large rear wing for a total downforce of 2,645 pounds.
We have to admit that even though the SCV12 looks stunning, this Norwegian creation looks absolutely bonkers, and would look just as home on the streets of LA as on the road courses of Europe.
Under the carbon-fiber engine cover lies a modified version of the Huracan's 5.2-liter V10 engine. Zyrus Engineering has gone ahead and strapped two turbochargers to this Italian lump which increases power up to 1,200 hp. For those that seek even more power, the company plans on releasing even wilder versions, including the LP1600 and LP2000, which both denote how much power they produce. The rest of the engine is finished off with a large intercooler, Inconel manifolds, and a titanium exhaust system. Zyrus says that this makes the LP1200 "faster than any other Lamborghini on the race track."
The numbers continue to impress: with 1200 hp pulling 1200 kg, and a massive 1200 kg of downforce on offer, the LP1200 features a power to weight to downforce ratio of 1:1:1. Zyrus plans to build 24 of these cars, with 12 being road legal.
