This is the epitome of a pee-inducing tuning project

It’s not uncommon to see a heavily tuned Lamborghini Huracan. Every so often, though, a tuner comes out with a tuning kit so jaw-dropping that you’re left with no words to describe it.

That’s basically what Zyrus Engineering accomplished when it presented its latest creation. It’s called the LP1200, and it’s based on the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo, the racing variant of the standard Huracan. Yes, folks. The LP1200 is a road-legal monstrosity that’s based on a track-only racer that’s based on a road-legal car.

What Makes the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo by Zyrus Different?

Cyrus Engineering claims that 527 components from the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo have either been modified or replaced in the LP1200.

The overall shape of the LT1200 remains relatively true to the Huracan Super Trofeo, but it’s easy to spot the differences, too, particularly with so many carbon fiber parts on the body of the raunchy Lambo. The LP1200 looks wider and the front splitter looks far more aggressive — in design and function — compared to what’s found on the track-focused Huracan ST.

The naked nature of the LP1200 — it’s devoid of the graphics and liveries that are commonly included in the racer ST — brings out the curves of the hypercar to a degree that we couldn’t see in the Super Trofeo. Zyrus Engineering deserves credit for that; it shed all the distracting colors and showed the Lambo in all its sexy glory.

The rear section is where things get out of hand. While you can see the Huracan ST’s engine and exhaust peaking from the back, that’s not the case with the LP1200. The exposed spaces have been covered, in part by what I can only assume is the most ridiculous rear diffuser any road-legal car has ever had. The tuner also worked around covering the exhaust pipes.

Up top, you’ll see the massive rear wing. Spoiler alert: that’s not the one that the standard Huracan ST comes with. The “standard rear wing,” though just as big, lines up straight, completely parallel to the road. The LP1200’s spoiler, on the other hand, curves upwards in the middle. That’s a clear hint that we’re dealing with a different powertrain setup compared to the Huracan ST.

What kind of powertrain setup are we dealing with here?

For the record, the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo is powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 620 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. It’s capable of accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds and 0 to 124 mph in 9.9 seconds. Its top speed is rated at 202 mph. For a racer that was first introduced in 2014, the Huracan Super Trofeo remains a formidable competition car in GT series all over the world. Cyrus even uses one in the Norwegian Extreme GT Championship. The tuner’s experience with the Huracan ST led the way towards the creation of the bonkers LP1200.

All of that brings us to the LP1200. It still carries the same 5.2-liter V-10 unit that powers the Huracan Super Trofeo, but that’s where the similarities end. It packs a V-10 engine that’s been slapped with a pair of turbochargers and has had its ECU tuned to the nines by Motec.

The result is a mind-bending output of 1,200 horsepower and what we presume is an equally ungodly amount of torque, maybe somewhere in the 1,000 pound-feet of torque range.

The fun doesn’t end there. The Huracan Super Trofeo’s dual-clutch transmission is gone, replaced by an Xtrac racing gearbox. Suspension upgrades come courtesy of Ohlins and a new Inconel manifold, new titanium exhaust system, and carbon-ceramic brakes complete the modifications.

Performance numbers should be through the roof, right?

Zyrus hasn’t revealed the performance figures of the LP1200, but given what we do know about all the modifications that went to this monster, it’s safe to say that the LP1200 can lay the smackdown on anything that gets in its path. Remember, the Huracan Super Trofeo can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds and 0 to 124 mph in 9.9 seconds.

Those are pedestrian figures compared to what the LP1200 can potentially do when it hits the track for testing. It just so happens that testing the LP1200 is on the docket for the Norwegian company. Zyrus has plans to bring the heavily tuned Lambo to the Nurburgring and Spa-Francorchamps race tracks for some testing fun. You can bet that all eyes will be on the LP1200 to see if it can live up to the hype.

For its part, Zyrus isn’t doing anything in tempering that hype.

On the contrary, it’s adding fuel to the fire by proclaiming that the LP1200 comes with a 1:1:1 power-to-weight-to-downforce ratio, alluding to its 1,200-horsepower output, 1,200-kilo weight, and 1,200-kilo downforce.

The insane gets…insaner?

What kind of financial setback are we looking at here?

If you have to ask, then it’s probably safe to say that the LP1200 could fetch a seven-figure price tag. Zyrus Engineering has so far kept mum on the price tag of its model. We do know that, in the spirit of homologation requirements, Zyrus plans to build 24 total units of the LP1200. Of the 24 units, 12 will be race cars while the other 12 will be street-legal variants.

As for the price, let’s just say that if the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo costs just shy of $300,000, Zyrus Engineering’s Lamborghini Huracan LP1200 should fetch somewhere close to $1 million. It sounds like a reach to mention that number, but would you be surprised if that’s exactly how much one unit ends up fetching?

Final Thoughts

Somewhere in the recesses of my mind, I imagine myself sitting behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracan LP1200. I’m just sitting there, basking in the atmosphere of being inside what is one the most powerful road-going Huracans in the world. I snap out of it quickly enough to know that the best I can do is stare at the LP1200 from my computer screen. That’s what this kind of tuning creation is capable of doing. I know I can’t afford one of these bad boys so the next best thing is imagine that I could.

The LP1200 is stunning in many ways, but the best part about this build is its authenticity to its roots. We know it’s powerful. We know it’s decked out in carbon fiber. We know a lot of the upgrades that Zyrus Engineering dropped into it. And yet, we still know that underneath all of that, it’s still a Lamborghini. It always has been.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
