The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 is based on a hybrid body shell mainly formed of aluminum and reinforced with carbon fiber components in the areas of greatest torsional stress. The body shell is equipped with a roll cage that meets FIA regulations and extends to the rear end, thus enhancing torsional stiffness. The body is crafted in composite materials (CFK, Kevlar, fiberglass), and the aerodynamics were developed together with Dallara Engineering, featuring the direct support of Gian Paolo Dallara, the company's founder.

SAFETYFIRST

Special attention has naturally been paid to safety. The seat in the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 is formed from a carbon fiber shell meeting FIA specification 8862 and an OMP fire extinguishing system with seven nozzles. An additional safety feature is the roof hatch system, a device that enables rescuers to provide first aid to the driver in case of accident, through a carbon fiber panel that is easily accessed on the roof.

ENGINE AND POWERTRAIN

The Huracán GT3 is powered by a naturally aspirated 90° V10 engine with a displacement of 5.2 liters and direct injection. The engine is derived from the street version of the Huracán. Electronic control is provided by a Bosch Motorsport control unit. All the electrical wiring is specifically designed for racing use, to ensure faster and easier service by technicians. Maximum power and torque can be varied to suit the type of intake restrictor that every GT championship applies to engines according to the Balance of Performance, a tool for equalizing the performance of GT cars. Also modified is the weight of the vehicle, which in the Huracán GT3's case is 1,230 Kg (dry weight).

With rear-wheel drive, the Huracán GT3 is equipped with a Hör 6-speed sequential.

BRAKES AND ELECTRONICS

The brake system includes Brembo Racing discs. The front units are 380 mm in diameter and have 6-piston calipers, with 355 mm discs and 4-piston calipers at the rear. The brakes are also equipped with a supplementary cooling system for the discs and calipers. The Bosch Motorsport ABS system boasts ten positions that can be selected by the driver using a button on the steering wheel, and the same is true for the traction control adjustment, which can also be set over ten parameters to trigger the system according to road grip and degree of tire wear.
