Lamborghini is Just Getting Started with its Hardcore Models

The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is just the beginning.

As the Italian exotic automaker’s motorsport division continues to grow, you can expect more track-focused roadgoing models in the future. Recently, Lamborghini unveiled its new Huracan Super Trofeo Evo race car, showing off the latest in aerodynamics. Speaking at the car’s reveal, head of research and development Maurizio Reggiani told Autocar some of the lessons learned during the development of the Super Trofeo Evo will directly impact the brand’s street cars.

In developing the newest race car, Lamborghini worked closely with racing firm Dallara and its in-house design department, Centro Stile, on the car’s aerodynamics. “The result of the Super Trofeo Evo is we have learned how to do a car with marvelous aerodynamics without any compromise in design or style,” said Reggiani.

The collaboration between Dallara and Centro Stile has also encouraged Lamborghini’s racing team, Squadra Corse, to work closer with the company’s road car division. “We are still new to motorsport compared to other companies in this field, but already we are having our design department working more closely with the racing side,” revealed Lamborghini motorsport aftersales boss, Silvestro D’Amico. “There will be more exchanges of information and technologies.”

D’Amico also admitted Lamborghini has considered expanding its presence in motorsports by competing the World Endurance Championship. But for now, “Le Mans is the dream,” although he admitted it’s still too early to say where Lamborghini will end up.
