Lamborghini reveal Evo2 specification Huracan GT3
Remember the teaser Lamborghini released last week? Well, here is the new Huracan GT3 Evo2.
Based on the STO track-focused version of the Huracan and powered by a 5.2-litre, naturally-aspirated V10 racer, the Evo2 progresses Lamborghini into the next generation of GT3.
Developed by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse motorsport department, the most distinctive feature of the updated model is the refreshed aerodynamic package, which is aligns with the FIA’s regulation refresh.
Not only was the Squadra Corse heavily involved in its development, but Lamborghini’s Centro Stile design house played an integral role in its appearance. The body is made of carbon fibre with the floor Zylon-coated as renewed diffusers and splitters improve downforce.
STO features include the aluminium rear wing supports, hexagonal roof air scoop replacing the side intakes on the current model, while engine-wise 10 electronically-actuated throttle bodies increase the V10’s efficiency using titanium valves.
“The new Huracán GT3 EVO2 is not simply an evolution of the current car,” said Giorgio Sanna, Lamborghini Head of Motorsport.
“It’s a new project that reinforces the technological transfer between Lamborghini’s motorsport division and the company and inherits two difficult tasks: to prove as successful as the previous generations of Huracán GT3, which have won more than 40 international titles in six seasons, and to match its commercial success by helping to reach the target of 500 Huracán racing cars since 2015.”
The new model will be able debut in the 24 Hours of Daytona next year.
The next round of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia Powered by AWS is the LIQUI MOLY Bathurst 12 Hour to be held on May 13-15.
