Automobili Lamborghini has just announced The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo for 2009. It has been featured as a lightweight version of the Gallardo LP 560-4 super sports car earlier this year. â€œWeâ€™re delighted to announce The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo,â€ said Automobili Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann. â€œBoth on-track and off, our championship will reflect the Lamborghini brand, with extreme, high performance racing and stylish and luxurious trackside facilities. This gives our Lamborghini clients, as well as professional and gentleman racing drivers looking for a new challenge, the opportunity to experience Lamborghini in the ultimate driving environment.â€
The Super Trofeo car and parts package is offered at 200,000 euro plus tax and entry fee. The V10 works with it very well, producing a technical harmony of powerful harmonics that can build up through revs with a splendid crescendo to finish in a mighty fortissimo. The Super Trofeo has been developed especially for extreme demands of motorsport. The ABS anti-lock brake system is specifically set up for racing. The interior in the Super Trofeo has carpet and sound-absorbing acoustic materials, and electronically adjustable sports seats to provide the most relaxed seating arrangements. The seat is extremely light and stiff Kevlar carbon-fibre composite, and in black fabric.
