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. It will make its debut at next year’s Daytona 24 Hours.
The slick-shod racer was launched in 2015 and 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). Now, in Evo2 form, the aerodynamic package, in particular, has advanced further, taking visual cues from the Huracan STO road car.
What’s new on the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo2?
The most significant STO-inspired upgrade is the new roof scoop, which feeds the car’s 5.2-litre titanium-valved V10 directly and enables Lamborghini to close the air intakes at the trailing edge of the window apertures to a large extent.
While the engine hardware remains largely identical to that of the Huracan road car, the Evo2-generation GT3 features individual throttle bodies for improved response.
However, outright power will be lower than the Huracan Evo and STO showroom cars’ 639hp totals – around 587hp is all that the regulations permit. It transmitted all of its power to the rear wheels via the car’s six-speed sequential gearbox supplied by Hor.

The Evo2 is a carbon-fibre bodywork with updated splitters, diffuser, and underbody developed and built on-site in Sant’Agata by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division.
Downforce is increased in order to improve lap times, but as with previous iterations of the Huracan GT3, stability and predictability remain priorities, and Lamborghini intends to maintain the car’s reputation as one of the most forgiving machines on a GT3 grid populated by both professional and amateur drivers. A modernised multistage traction control system assists in this endeavour.

Teams currently running the Huracan Evo GT3 car, which offered 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 based on the Huracan Evo’s chassis.
Evo2’s eligibility for racing
The Evo2 will be eligible for a number of series, including the British GT Championship, where it will compete against the Audi R8 LMs GT3 Evo II, Bentley Continental GT3, Mercedes-AMG GT3, Porsche 911 GT3 R, and the new BMW M4 GT3.
The field of GT3 cars will expand in the coming years to include the Ferrari 296 GT3 and Corvette Z06 GT3.R.
In India, Lamborghini
In India, Lamborghini sells the Huracan, Aventador, and Urus. The automaker has also been on a tear in terms of sales, recently breaking two records – the 300-unit sales mark and the 400-unit sales milestone, the latter of which took just six months to achieve.
