The Lamborghini Huracan GT3 is poised to make a debut at the 2016 Daytona 24 Hours endurance race. The newbie was officially introduced earlier this year and the Raging Bull is not going to spend much idle time prior to unleashing its variants. The standard Huracan was created to replace the long-running Gallardo model, but the GT3 Huracan is for the track.
The Daytona race will be the first Stateside venue for the Huracan GT3, having already indulged in the Blancpain Endurance Series. There are well laid plans for an expanded motorsports circuit slated to include the United SportsCar Championship and others. According to Lamborghini Squadra Corse director Giorgio Sanna: “We are only focused and committed to customer racing. We are excited to make this next step in North America as our motorsport program competes for the first time in Lamborghini history in the 24 Hours at Daytona and in multiple full-season GTD efforts.” The outgoing Lamborghini Gallardo was certainly no slouch in the Blancpain series.
While the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 does indeed share many of the bare-bones components of her street-legal sibling, including the 5.2-liter V10 engine, the racing version has been enhanced to bring 585 horses to life which are driven via a 6-speed sequential. The skeleton is comprised of carbon fiber, of course, and aluminum for added strength and stability. The double-up of high endurance materials results in a svelte curb weight of just 2,731 ultra-light and modified pounds.
Overall, this Huracan racer should be a force to contend with, and it will be a fantastic indulgence to see all of the many looks that emerge because one of the best aspects of racing is wrapping the cars and making them appear fierce!
