2018 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo revealed

Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the motorsport arm of Automobili Lamborghini, has unveiled the new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The event also saw the firm announce a new partnership with Swiss luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis, which takes over from Blancpain in 2018.

The Huracan Super Trofeo Evo, Lamborghini’s latest one-make race car that’s also eligible for GT races worldwide, sports entirely redesigned aerodynamics. The aim was to maintain the same level of downforce of the outgoing Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, while achieving higher overall aerodynamic efficiency with improved stability.

New aero features include a central fin on the engine cover and a new intake on the car’s roof. In fact, only the flat floor, front splitter and rear diffuser have been carried over on the full carbon fibre body. With drag reduced by 8%, lap times are set to be faster on the Evo.

The new body kit was developed by the team of motorsport engineers at Lamborghini, working in partnership with Dallara Engineering and with Lamborghini Centro Stile, which also designed the livery. The road Huracan’s naturally aspirated 5.2 litre V10 engine remains, but the Evo gets a new exhaust system. An X-Track six-speed sequential gearbox sends drive to the rear wheels.

The list price of the new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo is 235,000 euros (including tax) in Europe and $295,000 in America.

The Evo will make its track debut in the spring of 2018 in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series in Europe, Asia and North America. Lamborghini says that race teams with the current Huracan Super Trofeo can purchase the Evo’s aerodynamic bodykit to upgrade their cars to new specifications.
