Driving the regular Lamborghini Huracan on the racetrack should be exciting enough, but putting the Super Trofeo Evo racers through its paces at Imola is taking things to a whole new level.
Developed for GT racing, the Super Trofeo is much lighter than the street-legal Huracan Evo. It also boasts a custom body with an emphasis on advanced aerodynamics developed by the company’s Motorsport department in partnership with Lambo’s Centro Stile and Dallara Engineering.

The longitudinally mounted, 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 churns out 620 PS (611 HP / 456 kW) at 8,250 rpm and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque at 6,500 rpm and sends power to the rear wheels via an X-Trac six-speed sequential gearbox. The Italian racer also has double wishbones with rigid bushing, adjustable anti-roll bars, Ohlins dampers, upgraded brakes with racing ABS and nine positions for the traction control.
Unsurprisingly, the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo stays planted through corners and, despite the menacing looks and growl, is actually quite easy to drive. The reviewer calls it “approachable” and “docile”, hardly words that are used to describe a race car; yet, as he notes, you don’t have to be a racing driver to enjoy it.
