Lamborghini unveiled its newest road-based race car at PebbleBeach this past weekend, and now we have some statistics to pair with that angular body. The all-new Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo will compete in the Europe, Asian, and North American Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo race series.
The Huracán Super Trofeo is 45percent stiffer than the outgoing racing model, thanks in part to a roll cage that weighs in at only 43 kg. Also adding stiffness is a carbon/aluminum frame that has been adjusted to accommodate things like a larger front radiator and a racing gearbox at the rear of the vehicle. All of this weight saving means the Super Trofeo weighs in at just 1,270 kg (dry) or about 2,800 lbs.

Rubber for the all new Trofeo comes exclusively from Pirelli, who has had input from the very first phases of development in order to create a tire that works perfectly with the Trofeo’s driving manner.
Inside, the Huracán Super Trofeo receives the same Alcantara trim as some of Lamborghini’s road cars, covering surfaces that include the steering wheel and the gear selector.
