Ushering in a new generation for GT3 class racing, the third generation Huracán presents an advanced racing version modeled after Huracán STO. Designed and developed by Squadra Corse in collaboration with Centro Stile. Sharing important design elements from its predecessor, its bodywork is made entirely of carbon fiber and it is rear-wheel drive only.
The GT3 EVO2 also features a boosted aerodynamic package, a naturally aspirated V10 engine and fully complies with the new FIA 2022 technical regulations. Designed and born for the track, and to hit top speeds, the Huracán GT3 EVO2 will make its circuit debut at the 2023 Daytona 24 Hours.
“The new Huracán GT3 EVO2 is not simply an evolution of the current car,” says Giorgio Sanna, Lamborghini Head of Motorsport. “It’s a new project that reinforces the technological transfer between Lamborghini’s motorsport division and the company.”
Engine and Performance
The naturally aspirated 10 cylinder engine – with only four screws used to fix the entire system to the engine - presents a displacement of 5204 cm³ and a bore and stroke of 84,5 x 92,9 mm. The six-speed gearbox by HOR is pneumatically controlled and has a three discs racing clutch and paddles on the steering wheel.
The Tm Racing 380x34 mm discs front brakes and Tm 355x32 mm discs rear brakes together with ZF Hydraulic power steering and a dashboard by Bosch Motorsport, the car is given a lightweight and super quick feel. To get the best grip on the track the car is fitted with Pirelli PZero 325/680-18 DHD tires at the front, with Pirelli PZero 325/705-18 DHD tires on the rear.
Measuring at 4551 mm in length, 2221 mm in width and with a wheelbase of 2648 mm, the dry weight of the car is 1230 kg. Distinct design elements (which actually contribute to a more efficient intake system) include the unmistakable hexagonal air scoop design that optimally channels the airflow directly into the engine, and the rear fin.
This new Huracan features new splitters, diffuser and an underbody which presents a muscular design and aids in its aerodynamic load. The rear wing has also been upgraded with new supports which allow for precise adjustment of the wing itself.
Along with its exterior, the floor of the car is made from carbon fiber and coated with Zylon fiber for added strength. Its plexiglass side windows are fixed to the door for added structural rigidity.
The true eye-catching item in the interior is its racing wheel. With 13 different buttons/knobs (timer, drink, alarm, on-off, limiter, wiper, radio, light, TC, left, page, right, ABS), drivers are able to be in complete control while zipping around at breathtaking speeds.
Deliveries to customers will begin in the second half of 2022.
