Lamborghini’s motorsport department, Squadra Corse, recently sets a new record with over two hundred racing Huracáns produced in just 24 months. The 201st car leaving the company’s production plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese last January 18th was a Huracán GT3.
Lamborghini Squadra Corse is one of the few Motorsport departments in the world which can pride itself on manufacturing its own racing cars on the same production line of the road legal car, inside the factory of Sant’Agata Bolognese. Both the Huracán Super Trofeo and the Huracán GT3 share the same production line as the standard Lamborghini Huracán cars. Racing cars are followed along each assembly station by skilled and qualified technicians from Lamborghini Squadra Corse to ensure maximum care in the assembly.
The over two hundred racing cars produced include the Huracán Super Trofeo, the model animating the one-make series which Lamborghini Squadra Corse organizes in Europe, Asia, North America and in the Middle East, and the Huracán GT3, the top version racing in the main GT championships worldwide.
The Huracán Super Trofeo made its first public appearance in August 2014, during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California and started racing in the 2015 season. Over 140 units of this version have been produced in the course of two years at full production, which is a considerable achievement if compared to the preceding model, the Gallardo Super Trofeo which totaled 106 units between 2009 and 2014. In only two years, the Huracán has therefore exceeded the production career of the Gallardo, which lasted 6 years.
The GT3 version, which differs from the Huracán Super Trofeo thanks to its more sophisticated aerodynamics and suspension kinematics, developed in collaboration with Dallara, made its racing debut in 2015 (winning the Endurance race of the Blancpain GT Series at Monza) and has so far been produced in almost 60 units. About 40 of which have already taken part in 2016 GT championships, winning 2 titles and scoring 52 podiums, 18 overall wins and 22 pole positions.
For a Motorsport department, the production record achieved from 2015 to date are extraordinary numbers, especially considering the limited time frame in which these cars were built. “These figures – says Giorgio Sanna, Head of Motorsport at Automobili Lamborghini – show once more the great commercial and sporting success of the Huracán Super Trofeo and GT3, a result we want to share with all our customer teams investing in our Motorsport programs and products. A special thanks also goes to the Squadra Corse staff and all business areas of Automobili Lamborghini contributing to achieve important results every day.”
