Lamborghini Reveals New 2013 Gallardo GT3

The Gallardo GT3 FL2 is based on the recently revamped MY2013 Gallardo and has been created in cooperation with Reiter Engineering, the German outfit that has developed its own racing versions of Lamborghini models since 2000 netting 199 victories and 350 podium finishes.

The new race car’s official title is Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2, and it will be ready to start racing in the 2013 motorsport season.

The GT3 FL2 features “24-hour” (i.e. fade-resistant) brakes, improved engine cooling, reduced fuel consumption, a new front splitter, a rear carbon fiber diffuser based on that used by the Super Trofeo cars and a weight reduction of 25 kg (55 pounds) compared to the previous Gallardo GT3.

The race car is also dressed in a highly efficient aero kit consisting of a new front splitter and a rear diffuser similar to that found on the Gallardo Blancpain Super Trofeo race car.

To oversee its expanding motorsport program, Lamborghini has established a new Lamborghini Squadra Corse racing department at its headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy. The department will also oversee the existing Blancpain Super Trofeo one-make racing series and a new customer driving program.
