For those who found the Lamborghini Huracan LP640 too slow and too mundane-looking, we bring you this. The Zyrus LP1200 Strada, a car that doubles the horsepower of the original, adds massive amounts of downforce, and comes with a track day to learn it with the race team and their engineers.

The car was originally announced last June, a Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo with loads of carbon fibre bodywork and a twin-turbo system designed by Zyrus to give the 5.2L V10 stratospheric levels of performance. Now it’s here, and while half of the production run will be track only, the other 12 will be made road legal. Though we’re not sure exactly how.

Just look at it, with massive front splitter and dive planes, and a rear wing that could safely handle a small aircraft. We’re not exaggerating, either, Zyrus says the car makes 2,010 kg of downforce at 200 km/h.

The twin-turbo V10 makes 900 hp in road trim, but a quick press of a button boosts it to 1,200 hp “for track use.” Sure, we get it, wink and a nudge on that one. A smart dash control system lets you control the car through a smartphone app.

Though it starts life as an LP640 instead of the Super Trofeo of the track car, it’s no less impressive. Just 1,427 kg and built with more than 600 new parts from Norwegian Zyrus including an Inconel manifold and a titanium exhaust.

We’re not exactly sure how those Michelin slicks work with a license plate, but there’s nothing stopping you from swapping rubber when you get to the track (or are leaving it). And you’ll want that race rubber when you go in for your “free” track day familiarisation package that comes with the car, which will start at around 595,000 euros (CAD $925,000).
