Lamborghini has recently revealed a souped-up version of the Huracán STO that’s designed to compete in GT3 class racing — the Huracán GT3 EVO2.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What are some of the features offered by the Huracán GT3 EVO2?

    The Huracán GT3 EVO2 features a full carbon-fiber body, electronically actuated throttle, and an improved braking system.
  • When will the Huracán GT3 EVO2 make its track debut?

    The Huracán GT3 EVO2 will make its track debut at the 2023 Daytona 24 Hours.
  • The GT3-spec Huracán was designed and developed by Squadra Corse of Sant’Agata Bolognese and fully complies with the new FIA 2022 technical regulations and features all-new aerodynamic solutions and intake system.

    The Huracán GT3 EVO2 adopts the Huracán STO’s hexagonal air scoop design and rear fin and employs the aforementioned elements, albeit with little modifications. A snorkel, replacing the air intakes, is connected to the air scoop and optimally channels the airflow directly into the engine. That said, the Huracán GT3 EVO2 not only enjoys the benefits of an efficient intake system and better car balance but also offers drivers a naturally responsive vehicle.

    Lamborghini’s Centro Stile also designed new splitters as well as diffusers and underbody to enhance the Huracán GT3 EVO2’s aerodynamic properties. The carbon fiber floor, coated with high-strength Zylon fiber, together with the new diffuser, provides greater downforce than the current generation GT3 EVO.

    Other innovations include the rear wing, which is mounted on aluminum alloy pillars (Ergal 7075 T6) inspired by those of the STO.

    Furthermore, 10 electronically actuated throttle bodies have been introduced into the Huracán GT3 EVO2 to increase the efficiency of its V10 engine with titanium valves.

    Stopping power is improved by new calipers and pads in the Huracán GT3 EVO2’s braking system. Deigned by Squadra Corse, the enhancements optimize performance in both endurance and sprint races and work together with the GT3 EVO2’s dedicated traction control (TCS) and anti-lock braking systems (ABS) to provide better control in low-grip conditions.

    “The new Huracán GT3 EVO2 is not simply an evolution of the current car. 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,” said Lamborghini Motorsport Head Giorgio Sanna.

    The Huracán GT3 EVO2 will make its track debut at the 2023 Daytona 24 Hours.

    According to Lamborghini, customers who ordered the Huracán GT3 EVO2 can expect the cars to be delivered in the second half of 2022. An “evolution kit” is said to have been released which will allow owners of previous-gen GT3 EVO models to upgrade their vehicles to the GT3 EVO2.
