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.

Below is the official video of the new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo:

8,000 Lamborghini Huracan Cars Completed in Three Years

Lamborghini Huracan

In just three years, there were 8,000 Lamborghini Huracan cars built already. The figure surpassed the number of Lamborghinis ever made before 1999.

The Huracan is Lamborghini’s entry-level model. It was introduced during the Geneva Motor Show in 2014 and it came into the market in the second quarter of that same year. While the three-year figure is minuscule compared to the number of cars other companies make within the same duration, for a Lamborghini, that is already lot.

RoadAndTrack estimated that Lamborghini reached the 8,000 threshold when it comes to the total number of vehicles it produced sometime in 1999. Citing a data from the International Lamborghini Registry, the brand already produced around 5,599 units, excluding the Diablo, before 1993. Doing the math, the 2,401st Diablo that came out during that period is possibly the brand’s 8,000th car.

The company also disclosed that it produced around 3,000 Diablos during its production run, which ended in 2001. Thus, this supports the assumption that the company already produced 8,000 vehicles in 1999.

Regardless of when the company achieved the said numbers, the 8,000 figure definitely speaks a lot about the performance of the brand in this era. It its worth mentioning that the name is already under the Volkswagen Group, which purchased the company through Audi in 1998.

Though the Huracan still has a long way to go if it wants to take the mantle as Lamborghini’s most popular car. The predecessor of the car, the Gallardo, remains the holder of that distinction.

The Lamborghini Gallardo was introduced in 2003. The production run of the auto was until 2013. It is considered to the best-selling model of the brand because it sold around 14,000 during its production period.

Some might argue that the number of its cars available now dilute the exclusivity of Lamborghini. However, it should be noted that there are still more Porsches than Lamborghinis in the road today.

Lamborghini Huracan Joins Italian Police in Fight Against Crime

Lamborghini is truly one of Italy’s pride in the automotive world. Recently, the Italian Police got themselves a new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 to aid them in their fight against crime around the Bologna region.

For some, the supercar might be too much for a law enforcement agency. First, it is too expensive because of its $200,000 price tag. Second, its 610 hp output is just overrated.

Then again, BBC claimed that the vehicle is a gift from Lamborghini to the Italian Police. So who in their right mind would turn that down? Moreover, in a police’s line of work, speed is definitely of the essence.

The Lamborghini Huracan can reach a top speed of 325 km/h. The one given to the police is equipped with state of the art technology to enhance its navigation, communication and security features.

The special car’s main features include a police radio, tablet computer, firearm holster, fire extinguisher, hand-held devices for directing traffic and video camera. It is also packed with medical kit for first aid and refrigeration system in its trunk for transporting human organs.

The exterior of the supercar gets a medium blue paint finish with white accents. The paint follows the official colors of the Italian police. A police siren sits on the roof of the car and its sides are marked with “Polizia”. It is fitted with P Zero Pirelli tires to complement its very sporty appeal.

It should be noted that it isn’t the first time for Lamborghini to donate one of its creations to the police force. Three years ago, the company gave the agency a Lamborghini Gallardo, which is the Huracan’s predecessor.

The head of the Italian State Police, Alessandro Pansa, took the delivery of the new Huracan. “This Lamborghini represents Italy and the quality of its people,” he said. “The same we find in both men and women who wear the uniform of the State Police,” he added.

2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder is a Lifestyle Car for Smooth Driving

Lamborghini Huracan

In the mid-2000s, the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder was the talk of the town. It was a privilege enough to have driven it for four miles before, but we failed to get a good impression except that the V-10 was just too powerful.

We also distinctly remember that its engine was quite roaring like a brick was thrown inside a grinder, but we were impressed nonetheless of the raw nature of the sound and appeal.

Now, we get to test drive another Lamborghini creation—the Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder—at the Lamborghini press drive in Miami. This one’s a 610-horsepower supercar, so the expectations are actually quite high. It didn’t disappoint, but it didn’t impress us either.

“Lifestyle” Car

If you’re expecting a sports car that would roar through the streets of Miami or whatever city you’re in, you would be disappointed. The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder is a “lifestyle car,” meaning it is best to be used while you’re cruising along the Miami coast rather than rattling the railings off its roads.

The experience is founded on driving this in low speed and enjoying the feel of the engine, rather than pushing it to the extreme.

That doesn’t mean the Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder cannot perform magnificently. You have to remember it still shares the same aluminum spaceframe with the Huracán coupe and the upcoming 2017 Audi R8. Its structure, which used carbon fiber for the firewall and central tunnel, feels light but strong.

It packs a 5.2-liter V-10 with 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. It has a direct and port fuel injection that allows for fewer emissions during startup and lets the computer choose the type of injection that works best for the throttle demands.

This engine is paired with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission while the power is sent to all four wheels because of its all-wheel drive. In terms of acceleration, it can accelerate to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, vault from 0 to 124 mph in 10.2 seconds, and reach a top speed of 201 mph.

Overall, the Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder’s “power” came from Lamborghini’s passion for design, power, performance and aggression. In terms of specs and features, nothing much is outstandingly impressive with this machine—aside, of course, from the fact it is based on Lamborghini’s history and legacy of coming up with the best for whether they created a sports car or a “lifestyle” car.
