Video- New Lamborghini Hurracan GT3 teased

Snapshot: Lamborghini teased a video for the new Lamborghini Hurracan GT3 doing some laps around the Vallelunga circuit near Rome.

Lamborghini is famous for making cars that look insane and can go to insane speeds. But surprisingly, we don't see much of Lamborghini's racing around in various formats of Motorsports, apart from Le Mans and a few other events. But it seems like, Volkswagen owned, Lamborghini has decided to give some serious shot at the racing arena, and they have teased a video for the new Lamborghini Hurracan GT3 doing some laps around the Vallelunga circuit near Rome.

The Lamborghini Hurracan GT3 was tested under the supervision of Giorgio Sanna and was driven mercilessly on the Piero Taruffi circuit by the two official Lamborghini Squadra Corse test drivers Adrian Zaugg and Fabio Babini. The new Huracan GT3 will be based on the previously developed Gallardo and Murcielago by The Reiter Engineering and will be the first major in-house racing project by the Lamborghini.

As for the engine, the Hurracan GT3 will have to comply with the FIA regulations to race, but will get the same unit from the street legal Hurracan. The Hurracan gets a 5.2 Litre V10 engine producing a whopping 610HP and almost same specs will be used for the GT3 version, apart from the weight shedding, which can go up to a few hundred kilos.

To reduce the weight, Lamborghini will definitely opt to remove the all wheel drive system, which increases the weight of the manifolds and is not required for the racing purposes. In fact, Audi and Bentley did the same with their race cars, R8 LMS and Continental GT3 respectively. Volkswagen has a lot of racing experience with the Porsche and the Audi is doing good in the GT series. Lamborghini will be benefitted from the sister firms, one can say.
