Mclaren’s P1 GTR was not the only track-focused vehicle that made its debut at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as Lamborghini also introduced its new Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo. The next-generation Italian motorsports machine will debut in the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series.
The race car uses the same 5.2-liter direct-injected V10 engine borrowed from the LP610-4 Huracan, which delivers 620 hp and sends the power to the rear wheels. Thanks to the use of hybrid carbon fiber/aluminum chassis and strict motorsports weight reduction, the Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo has a total weight of 2,800 lbs or 1,270 kg.
In addition, the vehicle has a weight/power ration of 4.5 lbs/PS. Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo also features a new aerodynamic kit consisting in a new front hood, a front splitter, a front hood with big air intakes, as well as a new rear wing and air diffuser.
Furthermore, Lamborghini will offer the Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo exclusively with Pirelli tires.

As a result, the Huracan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 200 mph or 320 km/h.
