Zyrus LP1200, a 1,200hp Lamborghini Huracan

A Lamborghini Huracan is an amazing car on her own, especially the new EVO edition, and this was also taken onto the track when Lamborghini's Squadra Corse turned the Huracan Super Trofeo into to EVO version, with 620 hp from the V10 engine this is a real track-only car ... but it seems this can be improved further.

And this is exactly what Zyrus Engineering, based in Norway, has done ... they take a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo chassis and create a twin-turbo LP1200 ... the first twin-turbo Lamborghini Huracan specifically made for the track, we've seen many turbocharged Huracan already, but all of them were made for the road ... this Zyrus LP1200 is a pure-bred racing machine.

I guess the Zyrus LP1200 needs some serious downforce judging by the size of that wing

The entire body of the Zyrus LP1200 has been redesigned in-house and is made in prepreg carbon fiber, especially that massive rear wing has been developed with speed and downforce in mind ... Zyrus has redesigned a total of 527 parts from the Huracan Super Trofeo ... the result is over 1,200 kg of downforce.

Bespoke Zyrus engine management, custom intake manifolds made from Inconel, a unique twin-turbo system, and a new, titanium exhaust system results in the fastest Lamborghini on the track according to the Zyrus press kit ... note the power to weight on this car is 1:1!

The Zyrus LP1200 was designed with a single goal in mind ... performance, and the full carbon fiber interior gives you this impression too, with a custom steering wheel that's CNC milled and features the necessary controls for a race car experience, this car comes complete with Smart Dash, an app that allows the driver to monitor all necessary values of the car on a smart device, this software also comes from Norway (www.smartdash.no)

Zyrus intends to make 24 units of this LP1200 ... but wait, there is more. Depending on the twin-turbo kit and gearbox setup they will also offer an LP1600 and even an LP2000, on the outside, these will be identical, but the latter will boast no less than 2,000 hp.

And it gets even better ... having a 1,200 hp race car is a lot of fun, and the Zyrus LP1200 sure looks the part, but it's not very practical in everyday life, so Zyrus is going to make 12 road-legal versions of this car, with a less radical interior, and only in 1,200 hp tune, based on the Huracan Performante chassis, they will come with center-lock wheels and ceramic disks in a similar setup as the race variant.
