Remember the Zyrus LP1200 that suffered a tire blowout at 205 km/h on the Nurburgring? Well, Zyrus has now launched an equally bonkers road version called the LP1200 Strada.
ZYRUS LP1200 Strada is based on the Lamborghini Huracan LP640-4, but has over 600 new parts. It has a bespoke aero package featuring a new front bumper and splitter with large canards on either side. The rear has been completed reworked too. It has a large diffuser and probably the biggest rear wing you will ever see on a Huracan – It’s massive! It produces 2010 kg of downforce at 200 km/h.
In road specification, the LP1200 Strada puts out 900 hp but with a flick of a switch, the twin-turbo engine pumps out 1200 hp. The car is claimed to be 78 kg lighter than the full carbon track version.
The LP1200 Strada costs €595,000 and this includes a track day familiarization package.
The track-only version called the LP1200 R is based on the Huracan LP 640-2 Super Trofeo. All the body panels are re-done in carbon fiber and as a result, the car weighs 1200 kg (wet weight). The car also already proven its mettle in the Norwegian Extreme GT Championship. It won the overall title in September. The track version costs €525,000.
Zyrus plans to build 24 track versions and 12 LP200 Stradas. Pre-orders are now open.
