A Lamborghini Huracan modified to 1,200 hp and outfitted with a selection of dramatic aerodynamic components has lapped the Nurburgring in just 6 minutes and 48 seconds, almost matching the 6:47.2 of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
This Huracan has been built by Norwegian company Zyrus and will be capped at just 24 units worldwide, 12 of which will be road-legal while the others will be restricted to track use.
The Norwegian racing outfit has fitted the Huracan’s 5.2-liter V10 with a pair of turbochargers so it now pumps out 1,200 hp. The car also sports a Motec ECU, an Inconel manifold, and a titanium exhaust. It also has an Xtrac racing transmission.
Aerodynamics played a key role in the car’s creation. Consequently, it has an all-new front fascia, new side skirts, flared wheel arches, and a new rear end with a fixed rear wing and a diffuser. These bespoke parts are said to create 1,200 kg (2,645 lbs) of downforce.
While testing out the car at the Nurburgring, the Huracan was fitted with slick Pirelli P Zero tires and was phenomenally quick. Sure, it couldn’t quite match the time of a road-legal Porsche 911 GT2 RS on street tires but the driver did have to deal with some traffic during the lap. In addition, Zyrus says the car was running 900 hp on the day due to the very high track temperatures.
