Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Makes First Appearance in North America this Weekend at Laguna Seca

The most sophisticated machine in the Lamborghini motorsports program will make its first North American appearance this weekend, as the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 will be on display in the Lamborghini and Blancpain Village at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.Lamborghini Huracán GT3

The car will be the centerpiece of the display of Lamborghini vehicles at the iconic track in Northern California, site of the first two rounds of the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America championship on May 1-3.

Lamborghini is expanding its motorsports program behind the new Huracán GT3, which competes in the 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe. The Huracán GT3 is the first GT3 car fully engineered, developed and assembled internally by Lamborghini, with assistance from its valued partners.

The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 is equipped with an alu-carbon chassis and a fully integrated, FIA-compliant roll cage. The subframe has been modified both at the front and rear to accommodate a high performance water radiator (front), and for a better positioning of the gearbox (rear), improving aerodynamics. The car features a 42/58 front/rear weight distribution.

Bodywork is comprised of composite materials and was developed, along with aerodynamics, in collaboration with Dallara Engineering. Efficiency has been improved with the rear adjustable wing, adjustable front diffuser and louvres. The new aerodynamics also allow improved cooling of the braking system.

The GT3 is equipped with new bodywork fast-fittings and equipped with a new, enhanced-performing engine and gearbox oil cooler. The new rear-wheel drive Huracán GT3 adopts the V10 direct injection engine mounted on the road car, managed by a Bosch Motorsport control unit that also manages traction control, gearbox and the TFT display on the dashboard. The engine is fixed on the chassis by rigid mountings and is coupled with a sequential six-speed gearbox, according to FIA regulations, and a three-disc racing clutch.

The braking system is comprised of 380 x 34 mm steel discs at the front (6 pot), and 355 x 32mm steel discs at the back (4 pot), according to FIA regulations, equipped with Bosch ABS. This system features 12 different settings that can be adjusted from the steering wheel, as can traction control. The tire sizes are 315/680 at the front and 325/705 at the back. The car is equipped with a pneumatic lifting system.

Lamborghini and its dealers entertain VIP guests at every Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America in the Lamborghini and Blancpain Village, which features lavish hospitality and amenities.
