And it has some Countach inspiration.
Lamborghini has revealed its latest track-only motorsport creation and it's stunning. The Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EV02 features radical aerodynamic and design enhancements taken to extreme levels. This is the second time the Super Trofeo race car has received an update since it was introduced seven years ago and continues to be "the best testing ground for technical and aerodynamic solutions for both road cars and GTs," says Lamborghini's chief technical officer, Maurizio Reggiani.
The company says elements of the EV02's exterior styling will debut on future road cars and we're not exactly complaining. The front end features new high-intensity LED light clusters with a hexagonal design, while the pronounced front spoiler lip blends with the carbon fiber fins to create a stylistic connection to the Huracan STO.
Airflow optimizing curtain intakes, which also aid in downforce, are new as well. Out back, there's a large carbon fiber wing and LED taillight clusters directly inspired by the design of the legendary Countach. A carbon fiber bumper links other aero elements behind the wheels to the restyled diffuser fins.
Lamborghini notes aerodynamic improvements aren't the only upgrades here. Plastic, for example, has been replaced by carbon fiber as the material of choice for the side member paneling and those aforementioned rear aero bits. The rear fenders also now consist of a single unit that includes part of the side spoiler.
Mechanically, the braking system has been improved by way of larger steel front disc brakes (now measuring 390 mm instead of 380 mm) and new calipers. The naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine delivers the same 620 horsepower that's directed to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox.
The Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EV02 will have its live public debut on May 28 at the Paul Ricard race track in Le Castellet, France. Prices will begin at €250,000 (about $306,000) before taxes. Customers who already own a Huracan Super Trofeo EVO will get the chance to purchase a conversion kit to upgrade to the EV02 early next year.
