The Lambo has landed.
A road-going version of the LP620-2 Super Trofeo race car, a spiritual successor to the Gallardo Superleggera, is apparently in the works. That will be a very special Huracan, but until then this race car remains the most potent variant in the baby Lambo stable. Thanks to Jordan Shiraki, we have these stunning images of the first model arriving in the US at the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch. Upon revealing the Super Trofeo last year, Lamborghini said it "is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept."
As the LP620-2 designation suggests, the racer comes with 620 metric horsepower (611 hp) and adopts a rear-wheel-drive setup. Developed with Dallara Engineering, the Super Trofeo takes the Huracan's streamlined design to new extremes, while stripping weight to just 2,800 pounds thanks in part to a carbon fiber/aluminum chassis. Improved aerodynamics include a new front bumper with large front splitter and carbon canards, a revamped hood with large air outlets and new air intakes,"shark fins" on the front wheel arches, new side skirts and a massive ten-position rear wing. A dual center exhaust and mean-looking diffuser complete the back end design.
