Lamborghini Super Trofeo Street Circuit Debut

The long talked about Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo will make its first street circuit appearance at Norisring, Germany, where the second of the season’s six races will be held this weekend.

The Super Trofeo is, as you may know from our past coverages, powered by a 5.2l V10 "Iniezione Diretta Stratificata" engine, developing a staggering 570 hp. The car is, in fact, a lightweight version of the Gallardo LP 560-4. Using a reworked chassis, the car takes part, thanks to its permanent four-wheel drive, in the only one-make, all-wheel-drive motorsport series.

Several drivers will get behind the wheel of the Super Trofeo, including Germany’s Prince Albert II, who will drive a Team Lamborghini VIP car. Next to him will be Achim Winter, driving for Lamborghini Munchen Team Holzer.

The series is great fun,” Winter said. “I always dreamed of racing at Norisring; I have been several times but have never competed there. The track always attracts big crowds, which gives you so much adrenaline and motivation.

The Super Trofeo had an outstanding debut at Adria, and we are looking forward to a repeat performance in Germany. The street circuit will provide a different challenge for the Super Trofeo, but the racing is set to be just as close and just as riveting,” Manfred Fitzgerald, Lamborghini’s director of brand and design added.

The first race of the series, held in Adria, was won by Italian race team Petri Corse (Fabio Babini and Claudio Rossetto), who managed to score three victories, by overtaking fifteen Super Trofeo race cars.
