Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo2 gets an aggressive makeover

The Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo2 is that the latest racer for the automaker’s one-make race series. Unveiled Wednesday, the Evo2 differs radically from the previous Super Trofeo Evo version, with bodywork that bears little resemblance to the Huracán road car.

The new bodywork was a collaboration between Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division and Centro Stile design studio, and it previews styling elements that will be used on future road cars, the automaker said during a handout.

The LED headlights are much thinner than those on the present Huracán road car, with jowl-like channels along the side defining the corners of the front. The Evo2 also gets an “omega” front lip, which Lamborghini said was inspired by the Huracán STO track car.

At the rear, the Evo2 features an outsized carbon-fiber rear wing, stabilizing fin, and fender flares that appear as if a part of a Liberty Walk body kit. It also gets new taillights during a shape that references the Lamborghini Countach.

The Evo2 still uses a version of the 5.2-liter V-10 from the Huracán road car, tuned to supply 620 hp. An X-Trac 6-speed sequential gearbox sends that power to the rear wheels, while larger steel brake rotors (15.4 inches, up from the previous 15 inches) and new calipers provide stopping power. The calipers were designed for brand spanking new restraint that features a bigger area, improving braking performance, Lamborghini said.

The Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo2 will make its public debut on May 28, coinciding with the second round of the ECU Super Trofeo division’s 2021 season. The series, which incorporates a North American division also, will switch to the new car for the 2022 season. European pricing for the entire car starts at about $305,000 at current exchange rates), but kits also will be available to upgrade existing cars to Evo2 spec.
