The Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo2 has been Revealed

The Huracan Evo2 is based on the STO and will make its debut at the Daytona 24 Hours race next year.

The Huracan GT3 Evo2 is the latest top-tier racing car based on the Lamborghini Huracan. The Evo2 is the third evolution in Lamborghini’s line of GT3-level offerings homologated by the Huracan road car, and will make its debut at next year’s Daytona 24 Hours.

  • Engine hardware shared with the Huracan road car
  • Power output stands at 587hp, about 50hp less than the STO
  • Will be eligible for numerous racing series

The slick-shod racer was first introduced in 2015, and was then heavily updated to Evo specification in 2018, with a new roll-cage, engine, rear suspension, and power steering (which switched from hydraulic to electrohydraulic). The aerodynamic package, in particular, has progressed in Evo2 form, with some clear visual inspiration drawn from the Huracan STO road car.

What’s New in The Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo2?

The new roof scoop, which directly feeds the car’s 5.2-litre, titanium-valved V10 and has allowed Lamborghini to mostly close up the air intakes at the trailing edge of the window apertures, is the most significant STO-inspired upgrade.

While the engine hardware is largely shared with the Huracan road car, individual throttle bodies are included in the Evo2-generation GT3 for improved response.

However, outright power will be lower than the Huracan Evo and STO showroom cars’ 639hp totals, as the regulations only allow for around 587hp. It used the car’s Hor-supplied six-speed sequential gearbox to send all of its power to the rear wheels.

The Evo2 features an entirely carbon-fibre body with updates to the splitters, diffuser, and underbody, and was developed and built on-site in Sant’Agata by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division.

Downforce has been increased in order to improve lap times, but as with previous Huracan GT3 iterations, stability and predictability remain top priorities, and Lamborghini hopes to maintain the car’s reputation as one of the most forgiving machines on a GT3 grid that includes both professional and amateur drivers. In this regard, an updated multi-stage traction control system is beneficial.

Teams running the Huracan Evo GT3 car, which featured significant improvements over the original Huracan GT3 in terms of ingress/egress and mechanical access to the driveline, will be able to upgrade to Evo2 specification. Both cars are built on the Huracan Evo’s chassis.

The Racing Eligibility of The Evo2

The Evo2 will compete in a number of series, including the British GT Championship, where it will face the Audi R8 LMs GT3 Evo II, Bentley Continental GT3, McLaren 720S GT3, Mercedes-AMG GT3, Porsche 911 GT3 R, and the new BMW M4 GT3.

In India, Lamborghini

In India, Lamborghini sells the Huracan, Aventador, and Urus. The carmaker has also been on a roll in terms of sales, recently breaking two records: the 300-unit sales record and the 400-unit sales milestone, the latter of which took just six months to achieve.
