Lamborghini has reached another significant milestone in its motorsports heritage with the 400th Huracan race car having recently been built.

The milestone was recognized with a special event at its Sant’Agata Bolognese headquarters, which was attended by Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann, chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani, Ranieri Niccoli, the brand’s chief manufacturing officer and head of motorsport Giorgio Sanna.

They were joined by various technicians who build both the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo and GT3 Evo.

“We are proud of the milestone, which is important not only for Squadra Corse but for the whole company,” said Winklemann.

“In a few years Squadra Corse has established itself in the most important international competitions and the Huracán GT3 and Super Trofeo are an undisputed point of reference in the Gran Turismo category.”

The first Huracan Super Trofeo was presented in 2014, replacing the Gallardo as the car of choice in Lamborghini’s single-make championship in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

The Huracan GT3 made its debut the following year, marking Lamborghini’s official entry into GT racing.

Over the next six years, the Huracan GT3, and its successor the GT3 Evo, have won nearly 100 races, including three consecutive class victories in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, two Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring wins as well as a sweep of all three GT World Challenge Europe titles in 2019.

In 2020 alone, a total of 24 teams in 15 national or international championships fielded Huracan GT3 Evos.
