Lamborghini's one-make Super Trofeo series first started in 2009.
Since 2009, Lamborghini's one-make Super Trofeo racing series has been going from strength to strength, with races divided into three series across North America, Asia and Europe. The one-make race series is organized by Lamborghini's Squadra Corse division, which is developing a new hardcore Huracan Evo track weapon. When it launched, drivers competed in identical Gallardo race cars, but drivers currently race in the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo, which spawned the road-legal Huracan STO.
Lamborghini's race car is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine generating 620 hp and is built on the same production line as its road car sibling in Sant'Agata Bolognese.
