Well, the half that aren't purely for the track, anyway.
If you haven't come across this insane Norwegian creation before, the Zyrus Engineering LP1200 Strada is a heavily re-engineered 1,200 horsepower Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo-based LP1200 that, during development, nailed down a 6:48.56 minute lap of the Nurburgring.
When we last saw it, it was in its second build phase, with over 600 parts changed from the base model and 172 pounds shaved off of its total weight.
It has been certified road legal by TUV Rheinland, meaning its regulations on road safety and environmental protection have been passed for Germany. This is the gateway to Europe for the 12 models of the 24 built to hit the road. The other 12 will be pure track monsters.
To make the 12 street legal versions easier to drive on the road, the horsepower had to be dialed back from 1,200 to 700 hp in Strada (Street) mode, 900 hp in Sport mode, and the entire 1,217 hp can be uncorked using Corsa (Race) mode.
The way the LP1200 Strada drives both on the street and the track is down to the Racing and Development Driver for Zyrus Engineering, Fredrik Sorlie. Sorlie is an ex-racing driver, a drifter, a precision driver, and a Nurburgring-rat steeped in Norwegian car culture.
He ties this car together as deadly serious rather than some tuning company just heaping horsepower and dressing a Lamborghini with carbon fiber parts.
"It is a dream come true to be involved with such a project from start to finish," Sorlie said. "We started in 2018 racing two standard Super Trofeos, then developed the 1200HP twin turbo setup and raced that in the Norwegian GT+ Championship for two years and won the Championship in 2020. We have further developed the car on some of the World's best circuits and gained a lot of intelligence for this show-stopping machine. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than to share our passion with the world and help aspiring drivers attain the track-based knowledge that helps them quickly develop their talent."
