A little more than a month back, Lamborghini revealed the Huracan STO – a track-focused supercar built using the technology and learnings from the Italian marque’s racing cars. With 630hp and a mad aero package, we thought the STO is the wildest road-legal Huracan we’ll ever see. Fast forward to the final few days of 2020 and we’ve already been proven wrong. A Norwegian car tuning company named Zyrus Engineering has introduced its latest build called the LP1200 Strada, which is basically a Lamborghini Huracan LP640-4 on steroids. By looking at the pictures, you might be fooled into believing that this is just another Lambo with an ostentatious wide-bodied kit. The LP1200 Strada is an absolute track weapon purpose-built with the single point agenda to be silly-fast!
The Lamborghini Huracan LP640-4 isn’t a heavy car by any means – the Italian marque spends millions of dollars to shave off the last gram of extra weight. However, Zyrus Engineering managed to strip more than 170 pounds of weight by replacing 600 parts from the original supercar. Zyrus turned to special materials and construction processes for the build, with the whole reconstruction done by hand. The Norwegian tuner took the stock 5.2-liter twin-turbo V10 engine and worked its magic on it to extract 1200hp from it. However, that output is meant only for track use and a dedicated button brings it down to a reasonable 900hp for road use. In addition to that, the massive wing at the back along with other aerodynamic bits generate 4,431 lbs of maximum downforce, making it perfect for racetracks. But despite all these modifications, Zyrus Engineering managed to keep the LP1200 Strada road-legal, which is simply phenomenal. If you want one, Zyrus has set a starting price of $727,000 and it also includes a track day familiarization package.
