Hot Wheels Lamborghini Huracan LP-610-2 Super Trofeo



Last year Hot Wheels introduced the Lamborghini Huracan with its awesome looks and brute power.  However, some felt the styling was a tad bit too tame compared to the Gallardo, as was the introduction of more electronic controls to put a bit of damper on the fun.  For those who complained about those issues need to look at the Super Trofeo race car:  It is pure driving dynamics with a boost in the styling department in the name of aerodynamics.

The Huracan Super Trofeo is a racing version of the Huracan built for the FIA-regulated GT3 class and is vastly different from the road car.  For starters the complicated all-wheel drive system is removed to make the Huracan rear-wheel drive, then the engine is the same 5.2L DOHC V-10 from the stock Gallardo  and produces 620 hp. and 430 Ib-ft of torque through a six-speed sequential automated manual transmission with a clutch pedal for dead starts.  The tubular frame is lighter and features an integrated roll cage, and any luxury items from sound-deadening to fancy gadgets are also removed in the name of weight savings.  The curb weight now drops to 2,800 Ib's.  With the removal of the electronic aids the spoilers are fixed and a typical engine cover replaces the see-through cover on the stock car.

This Hot Wheels version definitely has the looks whether in dark gray (my favorite) or medium gray shade variations.  The side doors have 63 and the Italian color stripe on the bottom, while the front has those detailed (and mean) V-shaped running lamps on the headlights.  The lower chin spoiler stretches forward flanked by side wings and larger grille openings in conjunction with the large hood vents.  The sides get more lower aero winglets, front fender vents, rear vents for the engine, exterior mirrors, and cool gray multi-spoke wheels.  The rear spoiler has the Lamborghini names on the sides, the taillights and center vent grille are carried over from the stock car, then the lower bumper is heavily modified with more air diffusers, and strangley the mean quad exhausts are replaced with two wimpy ones in the center.

The engine compartment is sealed off with only side gills and a central roof vent the only indication of the mid-mounted V-10.  The interior has seating for only one person as a race seat with a 5-point harness.  The dashboard looks very similar to the stock Huracan's, but look closely and you'll see the center radio and HVAC controls replaced with toggle switches, a handle for changing the six gears, a racing steering wheel with more buttons, and a digital racing gauge package that is simpler and vastly different than the stock digital gauges.  Oh, and its less comfy and noisy, but hey it's a race car!  This is a very cool addition to the Huracan family and adds some much-needed pizzaz to the stock Huracan line.
