Lamborghini unleashes new Huracán GT3 EVO2 track machine

Lamborghini has unveiled the new Huracán GT3 EVO2, which fully complies with the latest FIA 2022 technical regulations for motor racing. Featuring innovative aerodynamic solutions and intake system, the new model succeeds the Huracán GT3 EVO, in turn homologated for FIA 2019 regulations.

Compared to the Huracán GT3 EVO that was based on the Huracán EVO road car, the new Huracán GT3 EVO2 takes off from the Huracán STO. The road version and GT3 race car share significant design elements, a rear-wheel drivetrain layout, and a naturally aspirated V10 engine.

Designed and developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the new Huracán GT3 EVO2 features an unmistakable hexagonal air scoop and a rear fin derived from the Huracán STO. These contribute to a more efficient intake system and better car balance. The air scoop is connected to a snorkel, replacing the side air intakes, and optimally channels airflow directly into the engine. The introduction of 10 electronically actuated throttle bodies increases the efficiency of the V10 engine, which has titanium valves.

Defining the full carbon fiber bodywork of the new Huracán GT3 EVO2 are redesigned splitters, diffuser and underbody — all of which enhance the car’s aerodynamic efficiency. The carbon fiber floor coated with high-strength Zylon fiber, together with the new diffuser, provides greater downforce than that under the GT3 EVO. Other innovations include the rear wing, which is mounted on aluminum alloy pillars inspired by those on the STO. The new supports allow for greater precision in adjusting the wing compared to those on the GT3 EVO.

The Huracán GT3 EVO2’s redesigned roll cage (which now has two rear pillars) and the new carbon-Kevlar honeycomb side panels increase crash safety and comply with FIA 2022 regulations. The plexiglas side windows are now fixed to the carbon fiber door panel by means of a ring of screws for greater structural rigidity and reliability.

Also updated in the new Huracán GT3 EVO2 is the braking system, which gets new calipers and pads designed by Squadra Corse to optimize performance in both endurance and sprint races. These solutions, combined with a dedicated traction control and ABS, have been developed to make the car easy to control in low-grip conditions.

Beyond merely an evolution of the Huracán GT3 EVO, the new Huracán GT3 EVO2 reinforces the technological transfer between Lamborghini’s motorsport division and the company’s road models. Previous generations of Huracán GT3 models have won more than 40 international titles in six seasons.
