Thought Lamborghini was done with racing variants of the brand new Huracan? Wrong. Just a couple of months after unveiling the Huracan Super Trofeo at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the Italian automaker has teased its upcoming GT3-spec Huracan racer.
Details about the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 remain scarce at this stage but Lamborghini’s racing division, Squadra Corse, is handling most of the development alongside racing squad Dallara. During the Huracan GT3’s initial test at the Vallelunga circuit in Italy, Lamborghini Squadra Corse drivers Adrian Zaugg and Fabio Babini got behind the wheel under the guidance of chief test driver for Lamborghini, Giorgio Sanna.

Discussing the tests, Sanna said, “I’m pretty much satisfied with this first test of the new Huracán GT3. We still have plenty of work to do to be ready for the upcoming season, but performance and reliability feedback is encouraging.”
The Lamborghini Huracan GT3 will compete in the 2015 Blancpain Endurance Season and take part in famous races like the Spa 24 Hours.
The Lamborghini Huracan GT3 will inevitably share many of its tech with the recently revealed Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo. The Huracan Super Trofeo is rear-wheel drive and also has a touch more power than the road-going car. As a matter of fact, it now has 611 hp instead of the 602 hp of the standard model. Of more importance however, is the fact that it is rear-wheel drive. This is quite a surprise considering that the existing Gallardo Super Trofeo and Huracan are all wheel drive. As a result of Lamborghini utilising rear-wheel drive for the Huracan Super Trofeo it indicates that they are likely to do the same for select road-going variants.
