The first teaser of Lamborghini’s Hurácan Super Trofeo race car has been released on the eve of its first test.

The test, at Vallelunga, is in preparation for its debut in Lamborgini’s Blancpain Super Trofeo racing series.

‘The first shakedown is always a very special moment,’ said chief test driver of Automobili Lamborghini’s research and development department, Giorgio Sanna. ‘I’ve followed the development phase step by step in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and we are all enthusiastic about this very important moment. The new Huracán Super Trofeo will ensure Lamborghini a key role in International motorsport.’

The Huracan Super Trofeo will be raced in all three Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series in Europe, Asia and North America, where it will rub shoulders with older Gallardo racers.

Not all teams that will compete in the 2015 Blancpain Super Trofeo championship will be forced to buy the brand new Huracan race car, they will be allowed to continue driving the Gallardo based car as a cost saving measure. But they will come in second - the Hurican is a full two seconds quicker on the Nardo circuit than the Gallardo it replaces.
