Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Gets a Lot Racier With EVO Model

At the present moment, there are two motorsport-spec Huracan derivatives in production. Joining the LP620-2 Super Trofeo and GT3 is the new Super Trofeo EVO, which marks Lamborghini’s new partnership with Roger Dubuis.

The question is, what does the “EVO” suffix add over the LP620-2 Super Trofeo? To put it bluntly, better everything. As a starting point, Lamborghini fine-tuned the bodywork, and the result of the aerodynamic trickery is a racing car that’s 1.5 seconds quicker around Monza than the non-EVO Super Trofeo.

Dallara offered its know-how, working together with Lamborghini to achieve less resistance to forward travel and improved stability at high speed. The extent of these modifications is astounding, with the Super Trofeo and Super Trofeo EVO sharing only the flat floor, the front splitter, and the rear diffuser.

On closer inspection, you’ll also notice the upper air intake and a fin-like aerodynamic element affixed to the hood. Better cooling for the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine is on the menu as well, with modifications including enlarged lower intakes up front and slightly bigger vents at the rear.

Sitting on 18-inch wheels, the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO features 9-stage traction control, 12-position racing anti-lock braking system, 620 metric ponies developed at a screaming 8,250 rpm, and no electronic stability control. The transmission is of the six-speed sequential type, and the goodies are sent exclusively to the rear wheels with the help of a light triple-disc racing clutch.

“Lamborghini Squadra Corse is continuing its plan to grow and consolidate its position as a trendsetter on the competition scene,” declared Stefano Domenicali, the head honcho of the Raging Bull of Sant’Agata Bolognese. “We are proud to work with a prestigious brand such as Roger Dubuis; one which shares our values of ongoing innovation and product uniqueness, while always respecting our heritage and with the purpose of thrilling and amazing our customers and all those who love the brand around the world."

Roger Dubuis is a Swiss luxury watchmaker founded in 1995. The company’s partnership with the automaker’s racing division starts in 2018, and the Titan Grey base color of the Super Trofeo EVO is a nod to Dubuis timepieces.
