About a year after the release of its new super car, Lamborghini has pulled the wraps of its new race car, the Huracán GT3. Set to take part in the Blancpain Endurance Series this year, the race car features a host of updates over the road car.
From the pictures and video it is clear that the race car has received its fair share of aerodynamic addenda. It seems actually that every single panel is replaced, except that of the roof. At the front is a new bumper with massive air intakes and a splitter. The front hood now features two NACA ducts as well as a huge centre airvent. The wide side sills lead to additional air intakes ahead of the rear wheels while the fixed wing compliments the notable rear diffuser. This GT3 is shot with Pirelli P Zero racing slicks.
The chassis consists of an aluminium-carbon fibre combination (same as the road car), although the front and rear subframes have been modified for the race car. The latter to accommodate a high performance water radiator and better positioning of the transmission.
No pictures have been released of the interior. But, watching the video we noticed that the car is equipped with a small, (heavily) multifunction steering wheel.
An upgraded version of the 5,2-litre, V10 engine powers the race car. Instead of the road car’s seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the race car is fitted with a six-speed sequential transmission and a three-disc racing clutch. The GT3 tips the scales at only 1 239 kg.
The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 is priced from 369 000 Euro (excluding taxes), which equates to R4,8 million before any added import duties.
