When 47 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo RWD Racecars Storm The Track

Many expect the rear-wheel-drive Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 to be the successor of the Gallardo LP500-2. And while that is true, Sant'Agata Bolognese did introduce an intermediate RWD step between the two, namely the LP620-2 Super Trofeo racecar.

Having made its debut last year, the track-confined Huracan is a testament to the fact that Lamborghini is investing heavily in making up for the time it lost by not taking part in motorsport activities.

To please racers from all across the globe, the Super Trofeo one-make series is split into three categories, covering North America, Europe and Asia. So everybody is happy.

The 2016 season of the Euro series kicked off late last month on Italy's Monza Autodrome and we can safely say the hostilities started with a bang. To be more precise, Monza enjoyed a record line-up consisting of 47 cars, 22 teams, 70 drivers on the start line.

And while the second stage of the Old Continent series may have taken place meanwhile (Silverstone hosted this on May 14-15), we still can't take our eyes off the video at the bottom of the page.

How could we, when the clip brings together 29,140 bp (we're go with bullpower here)? Keep in mind that Lamborghini remains the last "important"-volume supercar builder committed entirely to natural aspiration, so the screams that await you behind the "play" button have a direct correspondent on the street.

However, while we haven't enjoyed any seat time in a Lamborghini racecar, we can't say we'd choose the rear-wheel-drive Gallardo or Huracan over their all-wheel-drive versions. Even with the Huracan, the Italians haven't managed to deliver an experience as sharp as that offered by Ferraris or McLarens.

However, let's not forget that the Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale needs a replacement too and while that will most likely be an AWD proposal, drifting shenanigans are guaranteed.
