Super Trofeo Europe
In 2018, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe will enjoy its 10th season. On the back of an ever growing success that peaked in 2017 with a record number of starters, the one-make racing championship for cars from the Sant’Agata Bolognese Italian car maker saw the debut last year of the new Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo with rear wheel-drive only.
The car
All the mechanical feature that made the Huracán Super Trofeo the perfect choice between price and performance are confirmed in the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo including the Lamborghini V10 5.2cc engine with 620hp and an XTrac sequential gearbox developed specifically for the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo with an electric actuator designed by the Magneti Marelli Motorsport division. The control unit is the MOTEC M182 that controls data, gear changes and the TFT display mounted on the dashboard. Special features are the traction control and the Bosch Motorsport ABS. This system features 10 different settings that can be actioned directly on the steering wheel for ideal set-up in any weather/track conditions. Front and rear lights are now LED only as on the road going version. The race-oriented steering wheel has been developed jointly with OMP. The new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo will be again exclusively equipped with Pirelli tyres. Pirelli has followed every phase of the new car’s development – from the first drawings to final road tests – in order to create tyres that are perfectly matched to the Lamborghini’s specific characteristics. In particular, the decision to go with two-wheel drive for the new Huracán Super Trofeo has led to new tyre sizes: 305/660-18 at the front, and 315/680-18 at the back.
