This is the Huracan Super Trofeo


611bhp wings-and-slicks V10 racer ditches 4WD safety for rear-drive lunacy. Stig stirs in his lair.

At its launch, the Huracan - Lamborghini’s V10 ‘baby’ successor to the Gallardo - received gentle flack for being a little, well, safe on the styling side. Well, haters, how do you like it now?
This is the Huracan Super Trofeo, the racing version of the Son ofGallardo. Created with the help of Dallara, it’s been cooked up specifically for Lamborghini’s Blancpain Super Trofeo one-make series that currently runs in Asia, Europe and North America.

As you can see, the Huracan’s aerodynamics have been substantially revised for track. There’s a massive watch-out-for-your-ankles chin spoiler and dive plane at the front, flat under-tray and diffuser setup at the rear, and a vast ten-way adjustable rear wing springing from the rear deck.
The combined effect is to make the Huracan look like a prop from the armory of Game of Thrones… and generate enough downforce to vacuum-pack the Lambo the track. Extra grip will come courtesy of bespoke set of Pirellis wrapped around those lightweight rims. [x]

Top Gear Fails

  • Jeremy:
    Don't hit Hammond.
  • Two seconds later:
    *crunch*
  • Jeremy:
    I've hit Hammond!!

But it isn’t just the bench. This is bigger.

Be afraid: it’s the McLaren P1 GTR

Big Ron reveals £2m, 986bhp track-only edition of his bonkers hyper-hybrid. World runs for the hills. 
Having driven the McLaren P1 extensively on track and road, TopGear has not, at any point in its acquaintance with the 903bhp hyper-hybrid, thought: “You know what this car needs? More power…”


Good thing McLaren doesn’t listen to TopGear. This is the P1 GTR, a track-only racer revealed at California’s ritzy Pebble Beach meet. A car, says McLaren, with a simple aim: to be the best driver’s car in the world on track. A car with yet more power than the absurdly powerful road-going P1.
How much more power? Precisely 83bhp more than the, ahem, standard P1, taking overall output from the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 and electric motor to 986bhp. Veyron power.

McLaren is yet to reveal performance figures, but the GTR will trump the road-going P1’s 0-62mph of 2.8 seconds. Not much save a top fuel dragster will get off the line quicker. [x]
