Home / Social media / News / Lamborghini's Huracán STO gets the full race package, transforms into GT3 EVO2!


We recently told you about the amazing sales that Lamborghini has had in recent years, and it’s their new models that can be credited with the success. For Q1 of the 2022 sales, the Italian automaker recorded an amazing 2 539 unit sales, and out of that 844 were Huracán models. That’s some pretty good shifting of models there, especially for a model run that costs a good deal more than $300 000. The other day we saw the OG Stig, Ben Collins, take a Huracán out on the open road in a direct comparison to a Porsche 911 992 GT3. and while this here SXdrv writer is all about Affalterbach, I have to admit that Huracán is pure adrenalin in the form of a supercar. When the CEO of Lamborghini America took a Huracán STO to Jay Leno’s Garage for Jay to have a thorough look, it impressed quite a bit, which is saying something considering how much it takes to impress a collector on Jay Leno’s level.

So with a whopping total of more than 20 000 models sold, the Huracán is the Lamborghini to have, and that means there’s special editions as well as track-spec versions available, and in typical fast car fashion, these models are continually improved upon. “At its unveiling we said that with the Huracán, Lamborghini is writing the next chapter in its great history. The Huracán has delivered an evolution of design, technological know-how, driving adventures, track records and sales records since its launch. It was designed as a car to provide super sports emotion in every environment, from daily driving to thrilling performance on track. Every iteration of the Huracán has stayed true to that Lamborghini philosophy, while in motorsport the Huracán is not only the protagonist of the Lamborghini one-make Super Trofeo series but has proved its dominance in GT3 series throughout the world.”
What we see here now is the third generation of Huracán that’s been prepared for proper GT3 Class racing. This new Huracán GT3 EVO2 follows on from the 2019 Huracán GT3 EVO, and it fully complies with the new FIA 2022 technical regulations, so a customer can buy one on Friday and race it on Sunday, all legal and ready to go. This Huracán GT3 EVO2 has all-new aerodynamics with a revised intake system where the air scoop is connected to a snorkel. This replaces the side air intakes to improve airflow. There’s now 10 electronically actuated throttle bodies, having one per cylinder increases flow and efficiency of the V10 powerplant. The team at Lamborghini Squadra Corse designed this new system to be modular, just four screws see everything removed so that track-side maintenance work is an easier task.
The carbon fibre was created in a collab with Lamborghini’s Centro Stile, and we now see new splitters, a new diffuser and enhanced underbody airflow from the carbon fibre floor that’s been coated with high-strength Zylon fibre helps provide greater downforce than the current generation race model. The rear wing mounting and position is copied from what we see on the Huracán STO. The roll cage has seen a re-designed, a pair of pillars were added at the rear and the added carbon-Kevlar honeycomb side panels increases safety in the event of a side impact. The Plexi-glass side windows sport newly designed ring screws to secure it, they’ve proven to add greater structural rigidity and reliability.

The Huracán GT3 EVO2 also features updates top the braking system by way of newly designed brake calipers and pads from Squadra Corse, the new compounds allow for optimised performance in both sprint and endurance races. The onboard electronics have been assigned a new dedicated traction control system (TCS) and anti-lock braking system (ABS) that reportedly allow for easier control of the Huracán GT3 EVO2 when track conditions are more slippery. Traction is also aided by some wide and sticky competition-use only Pirelli PZero track tyres in 325/680-18 at the front with 325/705-18 at the rear. These cost roughly $1 000 per tyre. 

“The new Huracán GT3 EVO2 is not simply an evolution of the current car. It’s a new project that reinforces the technological transfer between Lamborghini’s motorsport division and the company and inherits two difficult tasks: to prove as successful as the previous generations of Huracán GT3, which have won more than 40 international titles in six seasons, and to match its commercial success by helping to reach the target of 500 Huracán racing cars since 2015.” comments Giorgio Sanna, Lamborghini Head of Motorsport.

The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 will be delivered to customers from the Q3 of 2022, with it's official track debut scheduled for the 2023 Daytona 24 Hours event. If current owners are keen, there's an option to have the Huracán GT3 EVO upgraded to the new GT3 EVO2 specifications by way of an evolution kit.
