During a very special ceremony at the factory in Sant'Agata Lamborghini unveiled the latest development from the in house Squadra Corse department ... the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 race car that will enter the Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe ... five races during the 2015 season including the famous 24h de Spa Francorchamps in Belgium.
The new body made from composite material has been developed in collaboration with Dallara Engineering, founded by Gian Paolo Dallara, who has created a new aerodynamic shape based on the Huracan but optimizing air flow ... both around and into the car, complete with a massive rear wing and a lower front diffuser ... both of which are fully adjustable by the way.
Body panels are 'fast-fitting' on the new Lamborghini Huracan GT3 while inside we encounter a carbon seat together with an OMP fire extinguishing system. They even fitted a special hatch in the roof that allows access through the roof of the car in case of an accident.
The Huracan GT3 is a rear wheel drive only model with massive 380x34mm steel brake discs up front and 355x32mm discs at the rear with 6 and 4 pot calipers respectively ... add the Bosch ABS system that can be adjusted in 12 settings straight from the steering wheel and tires in 315/680 and 325/705 to the front and rear together with a pneumatic lifting system and you are talking about a real FIA GT3 race car.
Priced at 369,000 Euro not including taxes straight from the factory in Italy the car has been thoroughly tested by Giorgio Sanna (Head of Motorsport) and will enter all five races of the Blancpain Endurance Series in 2015, starting in Monza in early April.
At least two Huracan GT3 will compete in the 2015 season under the Grasser Racing Team colors, driven by Fabio Babini, Adrian Zaugg and Mirko Bortolotti together with three young people from Lamborghini's Young Drivers program: Giovanni Venturini, Jeroen Mul and Andrew Palmer.
