Lamborghini Huracán GT3 racer unveiled for 2015 season [video]

Lamborghini has unveiled the new Huracán GT3, in a world premiere at its headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

The new GT3 competitor will race in the the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo in Europe, Asia and North America from this year, as well as the famous Spa-Francorchamps 24-hours race.

Previous Lamborghini race cars have developed outside the company by the likes of Reiter Engineering, but the new Huracan GT3 is largely developed in-house.

The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 is equipped with an Alu-Carbon chassis and a fully integrated FIA-compliant roll-cage. The subframe has been modified to accommodate a high performance water radiator (front), and for a better positioning of the gearbox (rear), improving aerodynamics. The kerb weight is 1239 Kg with a 42/58 front/rear weight distribution.

The bodywork is in composite materials and, along with the aerodynamics, has been developed in collaboration with Dallara Engineering.

As for the Huracán Super Trofeo, the GT3 is equipped with a new, enhanced-performing engine and gearbox oil cooler.

The car also has carbon frame 8862 specification seat, an OMP fire extinguishing system and an innovative roof hatch which enables, in case of need, quick assistance by medical personnel through the roof of the car.

In Europe, the Huracán GT3 is priced at 369,000 Euro (£279k) plus taxes.

The first race is already in April at Monza, Italy.
