Following this month’s confirmation that Lamborghini will make an official return to international motorsport, initially in the GT3 category, the Italian sports car manufacturer has now revealed the race car that it hopes will see it victorious in its future endeavors.

The new race car is based on the latest 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo and was developed together with Reiter Engineering. The German motorsport firm has been building racing versions of Lamborghini models for years and has notched up a number of wins in GT competition.

The new race car’s official title is Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2, and it will be ready to start racing in the 2013 motorsport season.

Race teams will receive the car, which lists at 320,000 euros (approximately $430,000), from March, and will initially use it in the Blancpain Endurance Series and Italian GT3 Championship in Europe, and the Le Mans Series in Asia. Lamborghini has confirmed that the Gallardo GT3 FL2 will be raced in the U.S. in 2014 but hasn’t mentioned any competitions.

The Gallardo GT3 FL2 has been developed with endurance racing in mind, so expect to see it in some of the popular long-distance races. In a statement, Lamborghini revealed that the car has all the necessities for endurance racing, including ‘24-hour’ brakes, improved engine cooling, and improved fuel management.

The race car is also dressed in a highly efficient aero kit consisting of a new front splitter and a rear diffuser similar to that found on the Gallardo Blancpain Super Trofeo race car.

To oversee its expanding motorsport program, Lamborghini has established a new Lamborghini Squadra Corse racing department at its headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy. The department will also oversee the existing Blancpain Super Trofeo one-make racing series and a new customer driving program.

Teams fielding the new Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2 race car will be announced soon.
