Lamborghini Huracan vs LP570 Super Trofeo on the Dyno

June 6th, 2015

huracan-vs-super-trofeoWhile the Lamborghini Hurcan has many significant advantages over it’s predecessor, the Gallardo, including more power from the 5.2L V10, a 7 speed dual clutch transmission along with dynamic steering and updated launch control systems, we thought it would be interesting to compare it against the baddest and most extreme Gallardo produced, the LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale.

Only 150 of the Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale’s were produced and while they were rated at 570HP, there were rumors that the car was making more power.  That additional power combined with a host of weight saving carbon fiber parts and an even faster shifting 6 speed e-gear transmission makes the Super Trofeo Stradale (STS for short) an amazing track car as well as one the best looking Gallardos with it’s aggressvie front bumper, large rear wing and carbon fiber louvered race hatch.

The Hurcan put down 497 horsepower and 334 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels while the STS put down 498 horsepower and 351 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels.   At the drag strip we ran 11.1 @ 132 MPH, making it the quickest and fastest stock Gallardo down the 1/4 mile.  Wile we didn’t get to test this specific Huracan at the track, we’ve seen other Hurcan’s at the track running 10.6x @ 130+ MPH.
