Squadra Corse, the motorsport arm of Italian manufacturer Lamborghini, have unveiled the new Huracan GT3 EVO2, based on the road-going STO variant. The new race car supersedes the original Huracan GT3 EVO.
This latest iteration has been developed to comply with the FIA’s 2022 technical regulations, and features a muscular and athletic body, made entirely of carbon fibre, and fresh aerodynamics, including an innovative rear wing mounted on aluminium alloy pillars.
This setup allows for miniscule and precise adjustments to improve downforce. A new rear diffuser and front splitter, and a redesigned underbody further maximise aerodynamic flow. Another key redesign is the GT3’s intake system.
The latter component now includes a snorkel to replace the large side intakes, channelling air to the engine for more efficient responsiveness, as well as to better balance the beast.
Lamborghini has also reinvented the roll cage, with the introduction of two rear pillars for further reinforcement the frame, along with carbon Kevlar honeycomb side panels for additional safety.
This adds additional protection for the driver in case of a side impact. Squadra Corse have also added new brake callipers and pads to the GT3 for better stopping power, while simultaneously optimising performance in both enduro and sprint racing situations.
Paired with partner company Pirelli’s P Zero tyres, a traction control system dedicated to the GT3 car, and an advanced anti-lock braking, the race car has now become easier to handle in low-grip conditions.
Customers looking to purchase the next generation of the GT3 race car can expect delivery in the second half of 2022. Lamborghini has also made a GT3 EVO2 evolution kit available for current GT3 EVO owners who wish to upgrade their current models.
