Lamborghini unveils new Huracán EVO2

Lamborghini Squadra Corse has revealed the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2

Optimised aerodynamics and a new braking system help make the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 the most high-performance version ever designed for Lamborghini’s one-make championship.

Since 2009, 950 drivers have raced in the Super Trofeo, competing in over 310 hours at many of the most prestigious tracks in the world.

The Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2, designed and engineered by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, is the latest version of the customer race car that will be used across each of the three continental Lamborghini Super Trofeo series, starting in 2022.

Radical aerodynamic refinements and an uncompromising design created by Lamborghini Centro Stile make the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 the most high-performance version ever to race in the one-make series, which in 2021 contested its 13th season.

Since 2009, 950 drivers have raced in the Super Trofeo, competing in over 310 hours at some of the most prestigious tracks in the world.

“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,” says Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “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”.

 

Aerodynamics and design are the areas in which Squadra Corse and Centro Stile have concentrated on the most.

From an aesthetic point of view, the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 takes the design of the previous generations to the extreme, anticipating the styling elements that will debut on road cars in the coming years. The front end has undergone a radical change, featuring new high-intensity full LED light clusters with a hexagonal design and a pronounced “Omega” lip that joins the carbon-fibre fins and reinforces the stylistic link with the Huracán STO. Also new are the air curtain intakes, which optimise airflow, by keeping it adherent to the sides, as well as downforce.

The rear, dominated by the large carbon-fibre wing, was inspired by minimalism and lightness. The frames of the new LED light clusters pay tribute to the design of the Countach and are efficiently supported by the arched carbon-fibre bumper, which harmoniously links the aerodynamic appendages located behind the wheels to the redesigned diffuser fins.  

Innovations are also seen in numerous components of the bodywork, such as the side member panelling and the rear aerodynamic architecture, replacing plastic materials with carbon fibre, while maintaining the maximum sustainability in terms of running costs. In addition, the rear fenders are now composed of a single element, which includes part of the side spoiler, for optimal surface continuity.

The braking system, designed and developed by Squadra Corse, has also undergone changes. The steel front discs are increased from 380 to 390mm; the new calipers can accommodate pads with a new design and a larger surface area to optimize performance and consumption. The Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2’s 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine delivers maximum power output of 462kW (62ohp), to be managed with a sequential six-speed X-Trac gearbox and combined with rear-wheel drive.

“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,” says 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”.
