Lamborghini’s GT3-Spec Huracan Racer To Make North American Debut In 2016

Forget tuners, this is the original wide body kit for the Huracan.

Unfortunately, Lamborghini won’t make it available for any street-legal Huracans, but it will make it available for anybody who wants to race the thing. That’s because this is Lambo’s own GT3 racer, which will make its North American debut in January 2016.

We already encountered this beast when it was first launched in January. And after a whole season of racing on the Old Continent, in the Blancpain Endurance series, the GT3 Huracan is ready to conquer the New World.

The car will premiere on North American soil in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Daytona (GTD) class at the 24 hours Daytona race. As the GT Daytona class adopted the 2016 FIA GT3 specs for all its entries, the Huracan was chosen by a handful of customer teams to compete in a full season of the United SportsCar Championship, including Konrad Motorsport , Change Racing and O’Gara Motorsports (teams which already ave entries in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo pogram)

Mind you, there will be no factory entries, but all customer-racing teams will have factory support, as Automobili Lamborghini Head of Motorsport – Giorgio Sanna – said:

“We are only focused and committed to customer racing. For us, GT3 is the pinnacle of our strategy. We are excited to make this next step in North America as our motorsport program competes for the first time in Lamborghini history in the 24 Hours at Daytona and in multiple full-season GTD efforts.”

The GT3 Huracan draws 585 horses from a 5.2-litre, V10 GT3-spec powerplant, while the car manufacturer boasts that it was the first GT3 car to be fully engineered, developed and assembled internally by Automobili Lamborghini.

According to Lamborghini, the GT3 program is the top step of an impressive pyramid, which includes Lamborghini Esperienza and Accademia and three Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series worldwide.
