Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO Racer Ready To Tear Up The Track

Reveal

Lamborghini’s new and improved Huracan GT3 will make its racing debut at Daytona in January 2019.

If the record-setting Huracan Performante isn’t track focused enough for you, Lamborghini has given its highly successful Huracan GT3 race car a surprise update. Unveiled at the Nurburgring round of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe, the new EVO is an evolution of the Huracan GT3, which has won 12 international titles as well as the prestigious Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring.

“The new Huracán GT3 EVO is the result of experience gained over the last three years of racing on circuits worldwide,” said Giorgio Sanna, Head of Lamborghini Motorsport. “The main objective during development was to improve drivability, making the car easier and more predictable for gentleman drivers, with low management costs for the teams. For teams that have invested in Lamborghini in the GT competitions of the past, we offer the opportunity to update the current Huracán GT3s with an EVO kit homologated for the next three years of races. As always, they can make use of our technical support and spare parts services on the track in national and international championships.”

With the help of Dallara, Lamborghini has spent the last year improving the Huracan GT3’s aerodynamics to increase the race car’s stability. The front has been modified with a pronounced leading edge, while the fiberglass hood has been replaced with carbon fiber. The cooling capacity of the radiator has also been improved thanks to a large central rib borrowed from the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo.

Elsewhere, the bumper has new lateral recesses with two large flicks to increase front downforce. A large carbon fiber wing dominates the rear end with ends modeled in two twists that optimize the aerodynamic efficiency, while the diffuser features redesigned fins.

In addition to improved aerodynamics, the Huracan GT3 EVO has also received some mechanical upgrades. The front suspension arms are now made of billet aluminum instead of steel, which improves the connection between the two axles, while the rear axle has received new hubs, bearings and axle shafts with the use of tripods instead of constant-velocity joints for greater transmission efficiency and easy maintenance. Four-way Ohlins shock absorbers, an electro-hydraulic power steering, and a new ABS system round off the mechanical and electronics changes.

Power is provided by Lamborghini’s 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 derived from the road-going Huracans, which adopts new camshafts and titanium valves.

Lamborghini is currently taking orders for the new race car and is also offering an Evo package for current Huracan GT3 owners. The Huracan GT3 EVO will make its racing debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona in January 2019.
