The Zyrus LP1200 Strada is a fully road-legal twin-turbo 1,200bhp Huracán
Norwegian firm gets full TÜV certification for its wild bewinged Huracán
Zyrus Engineering has been working on a road-legal version of its bonkers Huracán race car for a while now. In fact, we first heard about the project back in 2019, and our first glimpse of the road car renders was in 2021.
And now we have the real thing. Yep, after full certification from TÜV Rheinland, this is the production-spec Zyrus LP1200 Strada.
Pretty bonkers isn’t it? And that’s just the exterior with its carbon body, many vents, race car-style splitter and massive swan neck rear wing. Under the skin there’s a twin-turbocharged iteration of the Huracán’s 5.2-litre V10.
There are three switchable maps for the engine, with Strada mode offering 700bhp, Sport mode offering 900bhp and Corsa the full-fat 1,200bhp. There’s a custom Inconel exhaust system too, although all modes are ‘TÜV db certified’ for road use.
Underneath you’ll also find Öhlins four-way adjustable suspension, a bespoke airlift system, carbon ceramic brakes and forged wheels that are 19-inches up front and 20-inches at the rear. There’s also extra cooling for the hard-working V10, with new directional top mount fans.
Inside there’s much leather, carbon fibre and Alcantara, as well as a titanium half roll cage, four-point harnesses and an FIA-spec fire suppression system. Some of the Huracán’s standard creature comforts remain though, including the 8.4-inch central touchscreen, air conditioning and reversing camera. The latter is probably very useful given the size of that wing.
There’s also a separate screen mounted up by the steering wheel that acts as a control panel for a video and data logging system that offers up track driving telemetry and temperature monitors.
We’re told that the LP1200 has racked up over 11,000 miles of track testing so far, which included a Nürburgring lap time of 6m 48s on a track day with other cars on the circuit. That’s just 13s off the AMG One’s production car lap record.
All of this doesn’t come cheap, though. We’re not talking AMG One money here, but the LP1200 will still set you back £762,000 before options. Yikes. Although that base price does include a three-year warranty, the cost of a donor Huracán and a track day ‘familiarisation and coaching package’.
Best be quick – just nine examples will be built in total, and this first one will soon be delivered to its new owner in Germany…
