Lamborghini has produced its 200th Huracán race car, reaching a new production record since the initial rollout of the Super Trofeo car just over 24 months ago.

The 201st race car, a Huracán GT3, rolled off the assembly line at Sant’Agata Bolognese last week, marking a significant achievement for the Italian manufacturer, which has seen considerable demand for both the GT3 and Super Trofeo versions.

Both the race cars and production cars are assembled on the same line.

“These figures 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,” said Head of Lamborghini Motorsport Giorgio Sanna.

“A special thanks also goes to the Squadra Corse staff and all business areas of Automobili Lamborghini contributing to achieve important results every day.”

The Huracán Super Trofeo made its public debut in August 2014, during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California and started its racing campaign in 2015 in the various Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships.

More than 140 units have been produced in the course of two years at full production, having exceeded the total six-year production run of the Gallardo Super Trofeo.

The GT3 version, developed in collaboration with Dallara, also made its competition debut in 2015, with nearly 60 cars having since been produced and seen in competition globally.

A total of eight Huracán GT3 cars will be on the grid for this weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, with Lamborghini being the most represented manufacturer in the GT Daytona class for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opener.

    Congratulations to Lamborghini for building their 200th Huracan customer race car.

    Lomborghini runs a REAL customer race car program. They are a model that other manufacturers in GTD (and also some manufacturers who are currently ignoring GTD) and IMSA should pay close attention to.

    I do find it a bit ironic that it’s the exotic car manufacturer who is pumping out the customer cars and not some of the more common brands. This is COMPLETELY counter to the way things were in GT racing 25 to 30 years ago.
