HeaderLamborghini Debuts Huracan Super Trofeo EVO TrefeoInside of Lamborghini, there is a department whos only goal is to go fast, and damn the road laws that hold back the ‘mainstream’ cars the company makes. This lucky group of individuals is organized under the banner of Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the motorsport department of the company.

Today, this group unveiled the new Huracán Super Trofeo EVO which has entirely redesigned aerodynamics compared to the previous Super Trofeo Racer. These cars are not meant for the road, and are instead designed for the Super Trofeo one-make racing series.

The list price of the new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO is 235,000 Euros (plus tax) in Europe and Asia, and 295,000 USD in America.

The car will make its official track debut in the spring of 2018 in three continental series of Lamborghini Super Trofeo, Europe, Asia and North America, where all cars lined up will have the EVO configuration. The teams that have the current version of Huracán Super Trofeo, will have the opportunity to purchase the aerodynamic body kit to upgrade the car to new specifications.

Mitsubishi to Bring Back EVO Nameplate EVO eIn a move that should please fan-boys everywhere, Mitsubishi is in reality set to alienate a great many of them with their debut of the Mitsubishi e-EVOLUTION Concept. This concept, set to debut at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show will ” be unlike any other for the Mitsubishi Motors brand” according to the company.

This means that the long-rumored electric successor is likely on its way for the EVO, however the details of the car reveal a few more interesting proposed developments. The company states; “This very high performance automobile will blend Mitsubishi Motors’ signature 4WD and electric powertrain know-how with advanced Artificial Intelligence technology under a low slung aerodynamic SUV Coupe shape.”

While the EVO will luckily remain AWD, the new car will not only shed its petrol engine, but also its standard passenger car shape. Even MORE interesting is the use of artificial intelligence, whatever that entails.

Look for more details at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 from October 27th through November 5th.
