With both the Huracan GT3 and LP620-2 Super Tofeo ready to race, we took a look at them both.

While it might not be among the prettiest or most innovative Lambos to come from Sant’Agata Bolognese, the Gallardo is arguably the most important Bull of the modern era. Built over the course of a decade, it is Lamborghini’s best-selling model with more than 14,000 units delivered and spawned countless special-edition models, racing iterations and even Police versions. A few months after the last Gallardo rolled off the assembly line in November 2013, production of its replacement, the Huracan, began.

Penned by Filippo Perini — the Gallardo was originally designed by Giugiaro — the Huracan mirrors its predecessor in just about every aspect, starting with the mid-engine, all-wheel-drive layout and ending with the same 5.2-liter V-10 mounted behind the seats. The styling, however, represents a major departure from the Gallardo’s, with many cues borrowed from the flagship Aventador. Obviously more modern and a lot more potent, the 2015 Huracan faces a rather difficult mission in replacing Lambo’s most successful sports car on both the road and the track.

While replacing the Gallardo on the road is rather achievable considering the Huracan’s superior performance, doing so on the track depends on many factors, the most important of which being Lambo’s ability to build fast, reliable, and affordable Huracan race cars. Likewise, the Huracan has to be as polyvalent as the Gallardo, which spent no less than eight years tackling a host of endurance and sprint events around the world. Sure, with the race-spec Huracan still in its infancy, it will take a couple of years to find out if Lamborghini’s new sports car is headed in the right direction.

What we do know for a fact is that the Huracan is off to a promising start as of 2015, with two different racing configurations set to hit the track either under factory guidance or with privateers behind the wheel. I’m talking about the 2015 Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo and the 2015 Huracan GT3, two very similar, yet different race cars built in the same factory. I will put these two in a head-to-head competition to answer two key questions: how similar are they and how different are they?
