Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 Strada

Making a circuit car street legal hasn’t happened a lot before, only Edo Competition did it and a few others aswell. Now Reiter Engineering from Germany has unveiled a road legal version of it’s Lamborghini Gallardo Racing car called the GT3 Strada. Reiter Engineering is known from the FIA GT Championships and from boosting up the Diablo, Gallardo and Murcielago.

The Gallardo�s standard 5.0 liter V10 engine got 10 extra horses thanks to the addition of a new centrally-mounted high-flow exhaust. Weight has been reduced by only 9kg, suggesting that the Gallardo�s AWD system remains fully intact, which is very positive for the safety.

Next to that the GT3 Strada gets apart from the standard model with a custom carbon-fiber body, a giant GT wing on the back, a lowered ride-height and three-piece alloy wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Inside, the car remains largely stock except for the additional of new leather wrapped bucket racing seats. The Gallardo will be sold by Reiter Engineering as a one-off piece, although the company is also likely to sell various individual parts in a limited production run.

  1. This car looks great. The wing is not overpowering the overall design of the Gallardo like the wing of the Audi R8 GT3 car, the single pipe exhaust exit looks amazing on the car, and another plus is the fact that Reiter chose to modify a manual. I have always favored a stick to the paddle shift in a Lamborghini. The seats go very well with the interior, it would have been nice to see if there was going to be a standard seatbelt or a full-on racing harness. I also feel that Reiter could have done away with the interior door panels to save some extra weight and give it a more of a “track car” feel. With the car still keeping its AWD, I believe the Reiter Gallardo would make a great opponent to the track version of the R8.
