Lamborghini has taken the wraps off its updated GT3 competitor, the Huracan GT3 Evo, ahead of a 2019 debut.

The car was unveiled at the Nürburgring on Saturday afternoon during the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup weekend.

It is based on the current Huracan GT3, introduced in 2015, which has won 12 international titles as well as class wins this year in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

The new car will make its race debut in January’s Rolex 24 and all current Huracan GT3s can be updated with an Evo kit.

“The new Huracan GT3 Evo is the result of experience gained over the last three years of racing on circuits worldwide,” explained head of Lamborghini Motorsport Giorgio Sanna.

“The main objective during development was to improve drivability, making the car easier and more predictable for gentleman drivers, with low management costs for the teams.

“For teams that have invested in Lamborghini in the GT competitions of the past, we offer the opportunity to update the current Huracan GT3s with an Evo kit homologated for the next three years of races.

“As always, they can make use of our technical support and spare parts services on the track in national and international championships.”

Updates include a focus on aerodynamics, which has seen Lamborghini work with Dallara, such as a modified front splitter and bumper and new rear wing and diffuser.

Carbon fiber replaces fiberglass in the hood while cooling capacity has been increased by design taken from the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo.

Several changes have also been made to the suspension including four-way shock absorbers and aluminum front arms instead of steel in the previous model.

The car’s electronics benefit from Electro Hydraulic Power Steering with a switch to adjust the level of power steering while running, while the ABS system has also been updated.

It also features a 5.2-liter V10 engine derived from the latest road-going Huracans.
