With a one-brand range, we don’t usually look to the future of styling for a brand’s upcoming models, but Lamborghini is in many ways not your typical automotive company. Even so, the Italian supercar maker announced its Huracan Super Trofeo Evo 2 on Wednesday, and according to Sant’Agata Bolognese staff, the design language is a foretaste of things to come.
Like all Super Trofeo models from the last seven years, the Evo 2 is based on the Huracan super sports car. However, since the Huracan is already an amazingly fast car, the staff at Lamborghini Racing, also known as Squadra Corse, and the Centro Stile design department have focused most of their efforts on creating downforce and improving cooling through clever body design.
The changes that the racing and design teams have made are many, but some of the biggest include a new rear diffuser, big large carbon fiber wing, and a new front end with updated lighting. The results are dramatic and since the Evo 2 is a race car we suspect they are very functional too. Other changes include a revised braking system with 15.35-inch rotors by 15.31-inches and a new caliper design that accepts brake pads with much more surface area than in previous generations.
The Huracan Super Trofeo Evo 2 is powered by the same 5.2-liter V10 as the road car and develops 620 hp in this form. That power is routed through a six-speed Xtrac sequential transmission (the street car uses a seven-speed dual clutch transmission) and to the rear wheels.
Prices for the new car start at around $ 306,000 before tax, which isn’t that crazy given the last Huracan we drove for about $ 298,000 in retail. The Evo 2 is expected to make its official public debut in France on May 28 as part of the second round of the European Super Trofeo series.
