First Huracan Super Trofeo Evo in U.S. Driven by a 14-Year Old

Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo (5)

The new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo just reached the U.S. soil. The recipient of the supercar was a 14-year old high school student in California.

Last week, the teenager Steven Aghakhani welcomed the delivery of the Lambo worth $295,000. It came as a surprise to him by his father at Lamborghini Beverly Hills. At first, it may sound like a very rich father spoiling his kid. However, for those who are not familiar with Aghakhani, it should be noted that he deserves it.

According to Steven Racing, Aghakhani happens to be the National Auto Sport Association Southern Region champion. It was his first ever championship and he did it in his first year in the racing organization.

The teen has been racing since he was seven. He started at go-karts during that period until he reached the NASA Pro Series Southern California Regional Championship.

In the 2018 season, Aghakhani will be competing using America’s first Huracan Super Trofeo Evo under Steven Racing. He will be taking the supercar against his rivals in spring.

The Huracan Super Trofeo Evo was constructed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse. The development of its chassis was from Dallara Engineering. The heavy use carbon fiber helped improve the auto’s aerodynamics and downforce. Along with the upgrades include new safety features like its roof hatch that provides another exit for the driver during an accident.

The Huracan Super Trofeo Evo is equipped with a 5.2-liter V10 engine. The one to be used by Aghakhani in racing has been tuned to deliver 620 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. The power is distributed by an X-Trac six-speed sequential transmission. It also comes with Ohlins dampers and MOTEC electrical components.

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS: What Can You Get Starting at $188,550?

The 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS was just unveiled prior to the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The pricing of the sports car starts at $188,550, and it promises more downforce, more power and better grip.

Here are the top 3 features of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS:

1. Engine and Performance

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS uses the same 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated flat-six engine used by the 911 GT3. However it has been slightly tuned to deliver 520 hp and 346 lb-ft or torque. The numbers are 20 hp and 7 lb-ft up from its non-RS sibling.

The output of the 911 GT3 RS is distributed to the rear-wheels via a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission—ditching the six-speed manual of the plain 911 GT3. The setup allows the RS to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just three seconds. Then the top speed of the sports car is capped at 193 mph.

The extra power of the 911 GT3 RS is complemented by the chassis derived from the 911 GT3. It includes Porsche Active Suspension Management, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus and rear steering. In addition, it comes with new helper springs located at the front axle. All these are partnered with a set of standard active dampers that help improve the grip of the vehicle.

2. Exterior

The 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS benefits from all the goodies found in the 911 GT3 but with a few tweaks to help improve its aero and design. Among the changes are the wider body, carbon fiber hood and fenders, magnesium roof, larger front lip spoiler and side skirts, huge fixed rear wing as well as the optional forged magnesium wheels from the Weissach Package.

3. Interior

The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS only features two seats. The bucket seats come in carbon fiber shells. Aside from the other interior elements within the 911 GT3, the RS model also boasts lightweight glass and reduced sound insulation.
