Lamborghini has released its Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2, which will be used across each of the three continental one-make Lamborghini series running in Europe, America and Asia, starting in 2022.

“Seven years have passed since we introduced the first Huracán Super Trofeo at Pebble Beach, and now Squadra Corse is adding a new chapter to its history,” commented Stephan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Huracán is one of the biggest bestsellers in the history of the brand, and the Super Trofeo has additionally helped to increase its success.”

Since 2009, 950 drivers have raced in the Super Trofeo, competing in over 310 hours of racing. As Maurizio Reggiani, chief technical officer of Automobili Lamborghini, remarked: “The Super Trofeo is the best testing ground for technical and aerodynamic solutions for both road cars and GTs, and with the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 we have definitely taken another step forward. In April 2021 we celebrated the milestone of the 400th Huracán racing car, and our goal with the Super Trofeo EVO2 is to reach 500 in just a few years.”

From an aesthetic point of view, the EVO2 is an evolution of its predecessor’s design, which Lamborghini says anticipates the styling elements that will debut on road cars in the coming years. There are also aerodynamic refinements, such as new air intakes, claimed to optimize the airflow along the sides of the car and reduce drag.

Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini head of design, commented, “When we approached the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 project, we immediately thought of the concept of ‘Racing in style’. That is, a combination of the typical aggressiveness of the Huracán racing cars and the classic stylistic features of Lamborghini’s DNA. In addition, the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 represents a futuristic aesthetic approach that partially anticipates the design elements of the next range of road cars.”

While the powertrain remains largely unchanged, the braking system has been revised. The steel front discs have been increased from 380mm to 390mm in diameter with the calipers redesigned to accommodate a new pad design with a larger surface area to increase endurance.

Giorgio Sanna, Lamborghini’s head of motorsport, stated, “The Super Trofeo is the basis of our concept of customer racing, capable of involving and exciting both young talents and gentlemen drivers. The Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 is dedicated to both categories of drivers, and we have designed it with the precise aim of offering an even more engaging driving experience while paying the utmost attention to running costs.”

The EVO2 will make its public debut on May 28 in Le Castellet, Spain, in the second round of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe.

The price of the car for the European market is €250,000 (US$305,000) excluding taxes, and customers will have the opportunity to upgrade their existing Huracán Super Trofeo EVOs with a dedicated kit available from early 2022.
