VIDEO: The Smoking Tire drives Lamborghini Huracan LP 620-2 SuperTrofeo

The Lamborghini Huracan LP 602-2 Super Trofeo is an absolute monster. With a custom designed chassis, built form a blend of carbon fiber and aluminum, that has different geometries from the standard Huracan, to accommodate a larger radiator and racing gearbox, the Super Trofeo weighs only 2,799 lbs. That’s Ford Fiesta light and it still packs a 5.2 liter V10, making 611 hp and 419 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed Marelli sequential automated manual racing gearbox sits at the rear to send all of that power to the rear wheels. Lamborghini claims it’s capable of 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds, making it the fastest Lamborghini currently in production.

It’s also one of the most hardcore. Caged, stripped out and angry, that’s the Huracan Super Trofeo. There’s very little, if any, sound deadening and you can tell as Farah ignites the beastly V10. It’s loud and raw and furious. We love it and so does Farah. As he sets off, the car lurches a bit as he operates the clutch pedal, only used for taking off, which seems to be very difficult to modulate¬†with the racing gearbox. Once off, the Huracan sounds like a Kraken and seems like more of the most fun and exhilarating driving experiences one can have.

As Farah rockets around the track, it seems like there’s quite a steep learning curve. The engine doesn’t seem as if it likes partial throttle, as it seems tuned for full throttle or no throttle. As he tries to trim the throttle through corners, it bucks a little bit. So he has to learn how to adjust the throttle properly, which seems to be fully on or fully off. Once he gets the hang of it, it really comes alive and seems like an absolute joy to drive, something Farah exclaims over and over again while driving. This video makes me want one so badly I’ll gladly give up unnecessary organs for one. Check it out.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
