Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Unveiled

Will race 24 Hours of Spa

The GT3 category is really heating up, with entrants like the Cadillac ATS-V.R and Lexus RC F GT3 recently debuting. Now, Lamborghini is throwing its hat into the ring with the Huracan GT3.

The track-only model was developed in house by Lamborghini's Squadra Corse motorsport department, and utilizes an aluminum and carbon fiber chassis with fully integrated FIA-spec roll cage. The subframe has been modified at both the front and rear to make room for a high-performance air-to-water radiator, and also to better position the gearbox for aerodynamics. Italian race car builder Dallara Engineering collaborated on the bodywork and aerodynamics. Curb weight is around 2732 pounds, though the final weight will be set by the FIA balance of performance. Like the Huracan Super Trofeo, the GT3 is rear-wheel-drive in compliance with class regulations.

A carbon-frame seat, OMP seat harnesses, OMP fire system, quick-access roof hatch, and FT3 racing fuel cell are included for safety. The multifunction steering wheel has been re-engineered with help from OMP, while a new TFT display in the dash serves as the gauge cluster. The GT3 is powered by a direct-injected V-10 borrowed from the road car, but mated to a six-speed sequential transmission with three-disc racing clutch. A Bosch Motorsport control unit manages the engine and traction control, while an FIA-approved Bosch ABS system with 12 settings modulates the Huracan GT3's six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes.

The Huracan GT3 will contest the Blancpain Endurance Series, which hosts races at five European venues in 2015. One of those events is the prestigious 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in July. Customer racers in Europe can buy a GT3 for 369,000 euros (roughly $429,000 U.S.) before taxes.
