To mark 10 years since the brand first launched its one-make racing series, Lamborghini has produced a special-edition version of its Huracán racer that gets an even more powerful V10 engine and, more importantly of course, a new decal kit.
The Huracán Super Trofeo Evo 10th Edition, launched at Spa ahead of the 24 hour race, has a remapped ECU to extract a further 10 horses (how fitting) from its race-tuned 5.2-litre engine, which now drives the rear wheels with 630hp.
To signify the bump in performance, it comes dressed in a matte grey and lime green livery, with the latter applied to the car’s all important aero bits to emphasise the work they do when its hurtling down the straight at Monza at 175mph.
There’s also new badges with the words “One of Ten” on, as well as a certificate signed by brand boss Stefano Domenicali, chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani and Lambo motorsport boss Giorgio Sanna. Oh, and the lucky owner gets an OMP race suit to match the car.
As far as race scruntineers are concerned, the car is pretty much identical to the Trofeo Evo, Lambo’s 2018 iteration of mid-engined competition car for the one-make Super Trofeo Competition. It uses a six-speed sequential X-Trac gearbox, Bosch Motorsport ABS and Motec traction control offering nine levels of interference.
Other motorsport features include a set of Pirelli P Zero DHD2 tack tyres, polycarbonate windows and an Alcantara-wrapped dashboard, along with a bucket seat, harnesses and roll cage, as per FIA requirements for an international competition car.
Reggiani said the Trofeo Evo 10th Edition has been produced as a “tribute to our tradition, a new manifestation of the synergy between Squadra Corse and the R&D Department, two entities linked by a continuous osmosis process”.
But it’s also probably fair to say that this is an opportunity for Lamborghini to produce its racing car in slightly enhanced format for a considerably larger boost in profit. Lamborghini hasn’t revealed how much each of the 10 special edition cars will cost, but don’t expect any change back from £300,000.
