Lamborghini Huracan GT3
2015 Lamborghini Huracan GT3
The Lamborghini 2015 Huracan GT3 was designed for the GT3 racing competitions. It debuted on the heels of the Lamborghini Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo. It was built to compete in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo in Europe, Asia and North America and carries a price tag of $450,000.
The Lamborghini 2015 Huracán GT3 features the aluminum-carbon fiber chassis that Lambo has begun using more extensively on its cars. Being a race car, it also a compliant roll-cage.
Modifications were made to the subframe for the high-performance water radiator mounted up front. The gearbox in the rear is also better positioned for improved aerodynamics. Its curb weight of 2,725 lbs. is distributed 42 percent to the front and 58 percent to the rear in this rear-wheel drive race car.
Lambo developed a new multifunction racing steering wheel for the 2015 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 in conjunction with OMP Racing. It allows the driver to manage braking and traction without taking his hands off the wheel. The revised TFT display also conveys all the vital performance information.
Drivers are strapped into a carbon-frame seat with racing harness. For added safety, there’s also a fire-extinguishing system. Another vital piece of safety equipment is an easy-opening hatch in the roof to allow medical teams quick access in case of emergency.
A Bosch Motorsport control unit manages the V10 direction engine that is taken from on-road version of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracán GT3. The Bosch system also runs the traction control, gearbox and the TFT display on the dashboard. All electronic components inside, down to the wiring and connectors, are built with racing in mind.
Bosch also supplies the ABS for the Lamborghini Huracán GT3. The front, six-pot steel disc brakes at the front measure 380 x 34 while the rear, four-pot steel discs are 355 x 32. Both are set by FIA regulations. The braking system has 12 different settings that are controlled (along with the traction control) directly by the driver through the steering wheel.
