In a transformers world of autobots and decepticons, the brand new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo 2 would definitely fit the bunch of insaneness - after all we all know the Decepticons always get the good stuff..
Fresh out of Lamborghini Squadra Corse support team, the DTM Motosrport directed by Luigi Moccia have just delivered a brand new Huracán Super Trofeo Evo 2 to Malta & yes it's Maltese owned! I couldn't believe when I saw a statement online that One Racing Team Ltd have got their hands on this insane carbon fiber frenzy masterpiece.
To explain what exactly is an Evo 2, Lamborghini says that it is close to being a junior GT3 car. Suspension and aerodynamics are less advanced, but the Super Trofeo gets a more powerful version of Lamborghini's long-lived V10 making. I doubt I have to mention this is not a street legal car. This Super Trofeo Evo2 represents an evolutionary step forward for the Huracán race car, now in its seventh year of production.
The intimidation factor upon standing in front of this car is fairly high, but according to online posts, the Super Trofeo is actually an easy task to drive... slowly at least - if only I could confirm that for a fact (dreams). Upon having a look at the interior I noticed a clutch pedal, the first seen in a new Lamborghini in a decade, but this is just for maneuvering and starting.
Specifications of the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo 2 consists of a six speed sequential transmission, rear wheel drive producing 611hp at over 8,000 rpm and a top speed of 190 mph. Car's weight stands at 1,270kg 'dry'. This Huracán costs around €250k excluding taxes in Europe, and entry for six round championship is another €36k, including the all-important Lambo-branded race suit and three sets of tyres per weekend. Adding all the costs of mechanics, logistics and repairs, one's looking at the thick end of over €450k for a season. So yeah that's a substantial sum to trash a Lamborghini around a race track for fun but I'm sure if any one of us could, they would.
This Huracán Super Trofeo Evo 2 will tolerate all the abuse its handed and will play along cheerfully with the owners bad habits on the racetrack and we wish the One Racing Team Ltd a good luck on their first race this weekend in Sicily.
