Lamborghini has unveiled the competition version of its Huracán, which will be run in the Super Trofeo 1-make series, and dressed it up with some Swiss style.
Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the motorsports arm of Automobili Lamborghini, unveiled the new racing car at an exclusive event in the company’s home town of Sant’Agata Bolognese, using the event to also announce a new partnership with luxury watch-manufacturer Roger Dubuis, the self-titled company founded by watchmaker Roger Dubuis and designer Carlos Dias in 1980.
The new Huracán Super Trofeo EVO builds on the high-performance standards of its predecessor with redesigned aerodynamics, enhanced through the inclusion of a new carbon-fibre body kit. The aim of the reworking was to maintain the downforce of the previous model, while improving stability and decreasing resistance during forward movement.
The new body was developed in partnership with renowned race-chassis builder Dallara, with Lamborghini Centro Stile designing the livery to celebrate the new partnership with Roger Dubuis, which will begin in 2018 when the car makes its track debut at spring Lamborghini Super Trofeo races on three continents (Europe, Asia and North America).
The car will sell for €235,000 (roughly $280,000 US at today’s exchange rate) in Europe and Asia, and $295,000 US in North America. However, owners of the current car will have the chance to purchase the new aero body kit to update their current cars to the new EVO specification. No price was quoted for the body kit.
