Lamborghini Huracan GT3 ‘Double Evo’ Possible for 2021

A second evolution of the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 could be possible for as early as 2021, according to its head of motorsports Giorgio Sanna.

The Italian manufacturer, which rolled out with a comprehensive update to its championship-winning Hurcan GT3 this year, is likely to take advantage of the FIA’s regulations in permitting either an all-new car or Evo kit in the current three-year homologation cycle.

As is the case with Ferrari, which unveiled its 488 GT3 Evo 2020 last weekend, Lamborghini has no plans to build an all-new GT3 car, on the grounds of costs to its current customers.

We have still a few years in front of us in terms of life cycle with the Huracan, so it’s clear that something will come,” Sanna told Sportscar365.

“We are planning to have another evolution, so a second evolution of the Huracan, in the next few years.”

When asked the timeframe for the so-called ‘double evo’, Sanna said it would not come any earlier than 2021.

“We will communicate something quite soon,” he said.

“No new car, we will work always on evolution because we take into consideration the investment that all our teams have already done.

“It will be possible to upgrade the existing cars, always keeping in mind that cost reduction is fundamental in the customer racing world.”

GT2 “Not the Priority” for Lamborghini

Interest in developing a GT2 car to SRO Motorsports Group’s new platform appears to have cooled for Lamborghini, with the manufacturer’s focus currently on the launch of two new projects.

“A few customer teams from our side would be interested in GT2, a few gentleman drivers,” Sanna said.

“As we’ve said a few times, we could use the Super Trofeo technical platform to develop a potential GT2, but today it is not our priority.

“We are focused to develop the new hypercar plus the Urus ST-X, that will also be another asset in our customer racing portfolio.”

The development comes in the wake of McLaren calling off plans to build a GT2 car of its own, leaving Porsche and Audi with the only confirmed cars for 2020.
