Lamborghini has released full details on the rear-wheel drive Huracán GT3 in a press release that they issued Jan. 21.
The unveiling ceremony for the car was held at Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese where customers, partners and media from around the world were present.
Starting this year, the GT3 will compete in the Blancpain Endurance Series that goes through five venues across Europe, including the famous Spa-Francorchamps 24-hours race.
“With the Huracán GT3, Lamborghini Squadra Corse takes a further step forward in the development and production of a race car for this category, which is among the most prestigious and challenging in international motorsport,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “Lamborghini is thus for the first time directly involved in GT motorsport activities with the in-house development of this new model.”
The chassis of the Huracán GT3 is made of Alu-Carbon and features a fully-integrated roll-cage. The subframe was also modified in the front and rear in order to accommodate the new high performance radiator and the gearbox.
Bodywork of the car is more aerodynamic than ever before and is also lighter, thanks to the composite materials used for construction. Efficient aerodynamics are created through the rear adjustable wing, adjustable front diffuser and louvres. The added aerodynamics of the GT3 are also used to cool the new braking system.
Powering the car is the V10 found in the road car, but it is now managed by a Bosch Motorsport control unit. This unit also manages traction control, the gearbox and the display on the dashboard.
Pricing for the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 starts at €369,000, excluding taxes (approx. $430,000 USD).
Today, Lamborghini unveiled the new Huracán GT3 race car, which is destined to hit racetracks this year. The car was unveiled in a stunning green finish, and has gone under for a complete exterior overhaul. This is made apparent in the images uploaded to Lamborghini’s Facebook page today.
In the images you can see the new large
fixed adjustable rear wing and redesigned front and rear ends, as well as the wide side skirts on the side. It’s obvious that the Huracán GT3 is an all-out race car and we can’t wait to see it on the track.
