While the all-new Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 has successfully replaced the Gallardo as the brand’s entry-level sports car, the Italian company still has to replace the Gallardo on the racetrack.
That mission belongs to the new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo, which had its first shakedown on Tuesday on the “Piero Taruffi” Vallelunga circuit in Italy. Unfortunately, Lamborghini did not release photos with the car except one teaser that shows the front end of the racer wearing camouflage.
We can also see a big air intake in the lower part of the bumper and…that’s about it. The car is due to start racing next year in all three Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series' (Europe, Asia and North America). Next season’s Series will feature both the Gallardo and the Huracán which will share the grid but will race in different classes.
For its first track outing, the new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo was driven by Lamborghini chief test driver Giorgio Sanna along with the two official Lamborghini Squadra Corse test drivers Adrian Zaugg and Fabio Babini.
“The first shakedown is always a very special moment. I’ve followed the development phase step by step in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and we are all enthusiastic about this very important moment. We have full confidence in both Zaugg and Babini, as well as in the young drivers who will contribute to refining the new car. The new Huracán Super Trofeo will ensure Lamborghini a key role in International motor sport,” said Giorgio Sanna.
