The car will be racing in a host of events including the Blancpain Endurance Series and the Spa-Francorchamps 24-hours race, being decorated with stickers, as all racing cars are and have always been. The official technical partner of Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s activities in the coming years will be energy and petroleum comapny PERTAMINA.

“With the Huracán GT3, Lamborghini Squadra Corse takes a further step forward in the development and production of a race car for this category, which is among the most prestigious and challenging in international motorsport,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

“Lamborghini is thus for the first time directly involved in GT motorsport activities with the in-house development of this new model,'' he added.

As for the technical bits, the Huracan GT3 is fitted with a chassis made of aluminum and carbon fiber with a subframe that was modified to accommodate the extra bits needed to beef up the performance and aerodynamics.

At the moment, the kerb weight of the car sits at 1,239 kg (2,731 lbs) with a 42/58 distribution but it will soon be altered to comply with FIA regulations.

The bodywork and aerodynamics were done in collaboration with Dallara Engineering and have been fixed to ensure good traction on any kind of asphalt.

Compared to the Huracan LP 610-4, this racer is RWD and uses the V10 direct injection 610 HP engine from the road car but hooked up to a 6-speed sequential gearbox with a three-disc racing clutch. On the other hand, the braking system is made up of 380x34 mm steel discs at the front with 6-pot calipers and 335x32 steel discs at the back with 4-pot calipers.

As for the price, you’ll have to pony up €369,000 ($428,000 at the current exchange rates) excluding taxes for the GT3 Huracan.

Update: there's a video of the car going though its paces published by Lamborghini on its Youtube page. We added it below.
