Lamborghini reached a significant milestone in its motorsports program last week when the 300th Huracan race car rolled off the assembly line at its factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
The car, a Huracan Super Trofeo Evo, will compete in one of the Italian manufacturer’s Super Trofeo series this year, in the launch season of the upgraded package for the single-make championships in North America, Europe and Asia.
In all, more than 180 Huracan Super Trofeos and 70 Huracan GT3 cars have been built by Lamborghini since 2015, with the Super Trofeo cars being assembled on the same production line as its road-going counterparts.
“The fact of building racing cars by applying the same model of the series production is a considerable added value,” said Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer Maurizio Reggiani.
“In this way, production times are reduced and the highest quality control standards are guaranteed, which, in the case of a racing car, translates into greater reliability on track.”
The Huracan GT3 is coming off its most successful year yet, with customer teams having combined to score ten international titles, as well recently claiming GT Daytona class honors in both the Rolex 24 at Daytona and Twelve Hours of Sebring.
Lamborghini also set a production record for its road cars in 2017, with 3,815 cars produced.
“Equally extraordinary is the number of racing cars that Lamborghini Squadra Corse has produced in just three years since the launch of the Huracán Super Trofeo and Huracán GT3, proving that the growth trend of our brand is definitely positive also with regards to Motorsport customers.” said Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stefano Domenicali.
