The Huracan GT3 is unstoppable.
The Lamborghini Huracan had big shoes to fill following the discontinuation of the Lamborghini Gallardo and its corresponding motorsport program. It's fair to say the V10-powered Huracan road car has exceeded expectations and continues to do so. The same goes for the GT3 race car. The Italian marque is now celebrating the production of the 400th Huracan GT3 with all major executives, including newly re-appointed CEO Stephan Winkelmann on hand to celebrate. He was joined by Chief Technical Officer Maurizio Reggiani and Head of Motorsport Giorgio Sanna.
"We are proud of the milestone, which is important not only for Squadra Corse but for the whole company," Winkelmann said.
"In a few years Squadra Corse has established itself in the most important international competitions and the Huracan GT3 and Super Trofeo are an undisputed point of reference in the Gran Turismo category."
The Huracan Super Trofeo was launched in 2014 and the Huracan GT3 arrived one year later, thus enabling Lamborghini to compete in GT racing. Over the course of six seasons, the GT3 and its GT3 Evo successor, have won almost 100 races combined. These include major motorsport events like the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring. They also achieved the coveted "triple crown" of the GT World Challenge Europe in 2019.
The Huracans took home the gold on more than one occasion for each race. Last year alone, Huracan GT3 Evos were represented by 24 teams in 15 national and international races, with 88 different drivers and covering more than 12,400 miles.
The Huracan GT3 cars are built alongside the street-legal versions, specifically the Lamborghini Huracan Evo and the hardcore Huracan STO. The race cars also come powered by the lovely naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10, currently rated at 612 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. By contrast, the Huracan STO belts out 640 hp and 417 hp while the Huracan EVO has 630 hp and 443 lb-ft of Italian twist.
