This is the Lamborghini Huracán GT3. No, not the stylish man. The bright green car. It’s a race car.
The Huracán GT3 will race in the Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe this season, joining the LP 620-2 Super Trofeo that is the star of the Blancpain Super Trofeo one-make series.
"Lamborghini is thus for the first time directly involved in GT motorsport activities with the in-house development of this new model,” Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told the press. “We are proud and delighted to announce the new partnership with PERTAMINA, which will further support our motorsport activities.”
PERTAMINA is an Indonesian oil and energy company that is Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse official technical partner.
As for the Huracán GT3 itself, it features an FIA roll cage integrated into the aluminum-carbon chassis for a total curb weight of just over 2,700 pounds, distributed 42-58 percent front-rear. The car’s final race weight will be determined under balance of performance rules by the FIA.
The entire exterior is composite, with aerodynamic work done in conjunction with Dallara Engineering. Upgraded cooling, improved race-specific safety measures, and huge six-pit front / four-pot rear brakes are among the other GT3-specific upgrades.
For the privateer looking to make a name with the new Huracán GT3, the price will start at 369,000 euros.
The 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series calendar will see stops at the circuits of Monza, Silverstone, Paul Ricard, Spa-Francorchamps, and the Nürburgring. Fellow Volkswagen Group brand Bentley is also involved in the series together with its own partner Team M-Sport.
