Six seasons of success.
After six seasons of competition and nearly 100 race wins, Lamborghini Squadra Corse recently celebrated the production of its 400th Huracán race car.
To celebrate the occasion, the Italian automaker staged a special event at its factory, which was attended by various Lamborghini executives such as President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelman. Unlike many automakers, Lamborghini produces road and racing vehicles from its headquarters located in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy – the same factory used since the brand’s inception in 1963.

“We are proud of this milestone, which is important not only for Squadra Corse but for the whole company,” said Winkelman. “In a few years, Squadra Corse has established itself in the most important international competitions and the Huracán GT3 and Super Trofeo are an undisputed point of reference in the Gran Turismo category.”
The Huracán ST’s tenure began in 2014, replacing the Gallardo as the Italian automaker’s challenger in the worldwide one-make series; compared to the GT3 car, the ST develops slightly less power and downforce. The Huracán GT3 saw its debut in 2015, which marked the brand’s official entry into GT racing.
Rather unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for the race car to produce success in some of the biggest races around the world. After just six seasons, the Italian supercar – which received an Evo package in 2019 – has 100 victories to its name. To offer some perspective, those 100 wins include three consecutive victories at the 24 Hours of Daytona, two victories at the 12 Hours of Sebring, and the triple crown of the GT World Challenge (winning the Sprint, Endurance, and Overall titles).
With this level of success in such a short amount of time, there’s no telling what the Huracán GT3 will achieve in the coming years. Entering the 2021 season with one of its strongest factory driver lineups – Jordan Pepper, Andrea Caldarelli, Giovanni Venturini, and Corey Lewis – we’d wager that the success at the race track will continue.
Since 2014, 400 Huracán Super Trofeo and GT3s have been produced on the same line as the road cars in Sant’Agata Bolognese
In just six seasons, the Huracán GT3 has won nearly 100 races in the most prestigious GT championships in the world
Sant'Agata Bolognese, 6 April 2021 – Lamborghini is celebrating the production of its 400th Huracán model from its headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, where all Lamborghinis, both road and racing, have been produced since 1963. This milestone was recognised at a special event, which was attended by Stephan Winkelmann (President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini), Maurizio Reggiani (Chief Technical Officer), Ranieri Niccoli (Chief Manufacturing Officer) and Giorgio Sanna (Head of Motorsport). They were joined by the various technicians who build both the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo and GT3 Evo every day.
Commenting on the 400th Huracán, Winkelmann said: "We are proud of the milestone, which is important not only for Squadra Corse but for the whole company. In a few years Squadra Corse has established itself in the most important international competitions and the Huracán GT3 and Super Trofeo are an undisputed point of reference in the Gran Turismo category.”
The first Huracán Super Trofeo was presented in 2014, replacing the Gallardo as the car of choice in Lamborghini’s single-make championship in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The following year, the Huracán GT3 made its debut, marking Lamborghini’s official entry into GT racing.
Over the next six seasons, the Huracán GT3, and its successor the GT3 Evo, have won nearly 100 races, including the prestigious Daytona 24 Hours a record three consecutive times. The GT3 Evo has also won the coveted Sebring 12 Hours twice as well as the “triple crown” of the GT World Challenge Europe in 2019. In 2020 alone, the Huracán GT3 Evos were represented by 24 different teams, in 15 national and international championships and covered a total of 20,000km across 88 different drivers.
