Lamborghini’s latest – and arguably one of the greatest – track-exclusive machines has just been unveiled, and will most likely have a successful career in the company’s one-make racing series.
The reworked aerodynamics have proven to be the key to the new coupe’s prowess around the Monza circuit, with a lap coming out 1.5 seconds quicker than the existing model, even though engineers decided not to play with the power credentials. Lamborghini had help in the development process coming from Dallara Engineering, who researched the fancy new carbon-fiber bodywork for the Super Trofeo Evo. Only the floor panel, front splitter, and rear diffuser have actually been kept from the existing Huracán LP620-2 Super Trofeo, the rest is brand new.
Noteworthy are the refreshed front bumper with bigger lower intakes, the more aggressive hood with an additional intake in the center, providing fresh air into the cabin, as well as the completely reworked back. There’s a new vertical fin on the tail for increased speed around corners, a scoop on the roof sends extra cool air to the powerplant, and there are also bigger lower intakes for cooling necessities of the radiators, while enlarged ventilation compartments in the rear bumper deliver the needed lower temperatures to the engine. The Evo continues to use the 5.2-liter V10 with 620 horsepower, mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox linked to the rear wheels.
