Lamborghini’s one-make racing series, the Blancpain Super Trofeo, is on for a new season, and it once again includes a leg exclusive to the North American continent. This time around there’s an all-new car competing, the Huracán LP 620-2, and the first of the 2015-spec cars for the North American Super Trofeo series touched down at Nevada’s Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch last week, where top photographer Jordan Shiraki was able to capture all of the magic.

Competitors descended upon the track to view and collect their cars for the season, with Lamborghini Squadra Corse (the automaker’s burgeoning motorsports division) officials on hand to provide technical training sessions on the nuances of the new race car and help teams prepare for the season opener at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca starting May 1.

As previously reported, the Huracán LP 620-2 is closely related to the Huracán LP 610-4 road car but has slightly more power from its 5.2-liter V-10 (611 versus 601 hp), less weight, a sequential gearbox and only rear-wheel drive. The car was developed by the Squadra Corse together with chassis expert Dallara and should perform significantly better than the Gallardo LP 570-4 race car it replaces.

Because of this, competition in the series is divided into two classes this season: one featuring the Huracán-based car and the other featuring the previous Gallardo racer. Lamborghini tells us that there are more teams than ever this season, which is only the third for the North American Super Trofeo (the others are in Europe and Asia).

“The series has really matured in only its third year of the North American championship,” last year’s North American winner and winner in the Pro-Am class of the world final event, Kevin Conway, said in a statement. “There are several new teams and returning teams alike that have very strong driver lineups.”

Lamborghini Huracán Hits 1,000 U.S. Sales – 3,000 Global

Lamborghini Huracán Hits 1,000 U.S. Sales – 3,000 Global

If you had any questions about the success of Lamborghini’s Huracán as a replacement for the Gallardo—which you really wouldn’t have if you’d read our first drive review—you’ll have none now: the Huracán has officially racked up 1,000 U.S. sales and 3,000 global sales in just 10 months.

The result is enough for Lamborghini itself to crow about, and rightfully so—the 3,000 figure is one that brand hasn’t seen in the entire 2000-2012 period, making this Lamborghini’s best year this century. In 2013, Lamborghini marked the sale of just 2,121 cars, well short of its previous record mark of 2,406 units in 2008.

For 2014, the company is on pace to reach 3,600 total sales, though whether the supercar market will hold up—or rise—before year’s end is anyone’s guess. 

Lamborghini thinks this year’s success is about more than just a brutally handsome pair of cars in the Huracán and the Aventador, however.

The company’s COO, Alessandro Farmeschi, said in a statement, “In the Americas we worked together with our dealer partners to outline their launch outreach strategy from a new perspective. How to make their events and communications bold yet welcoming. As a result, we are watching a success story unfold. As the Huracán arrives in-market, consumers are anxiously waiting to experience this vehicle which is a direct result of these targeted events.”

Whatever the reason, it’s hard to argue with the success in terms of cars sold—and for the enthusiast, it’s always a good thing to see supercar brands succeed.

Huracán

Here and there in the world, there are a few Lamborghini Huracáns LP610-4. They’re all used for customer introductions and slowly but surely the official introduction on the Geneva Motor Show. This show will take place in two weeks. Lamborghini already told us that the private introductions were a big success because they already sold up to 700 Huracáns. Today we received some photos of an uncamouflaged Huracán in Miami.

Yesterday, a camouflaged model was spotted but now we have some photos without camouflage for you. It might not be the best photos we’ve seen until now but they definitely show what the Huracán will look like on the streets. The 610 hp strong Italian might be used for some last-minute testing by Lamborghini. The first deliveries will take place in the spring. Tuesday 4 March at 08:00, the Huracán will be officially introduced on the Geneva Motor Show.
