While we are all eagerly waiting for the new 2017 Lamborghini Huracan Performante a rather important milestone has been reached on the assembly line in Sant'Agata ... over a period of 24 months, a total of 201 Huracan race cars have been built by Squadra Corse.
The Lamborghini Squadra Corse department is actually building their Huracan Super Trofeo and Huracan GT3 race cars on the same assembly line as the street-legal V10 models, this results in a much higher level of quality control and faster build times.
When one of the Super Trofeo or GT3 cars enters the assembly process a team of specialized Squadra Corse engineers will be following that car through the various stations during the build to make sure it is race ready.
The Huracan Super Trofeo started her career in the 2015 season, racing in Europe, North America, Asia ... and now also in the Middle East, in total more than 140 units of this version have been assembled at the factory (note that only 109 Gallardo Super Trofeo race cars were built over a period of 6 years).
The flagship race car from Sant'Agata is the Huracan GT3, because of modified aerodynamics and different suspension settings (developed together with renowned Dallara), made an impressive debut in 2015 by winning the Blancpain GT Series in Monza. To date almost 60 units of the GT3 have been built, 40 of which competed in the 2016 GT season ... taking 52 podium finishes, 18 overall victories with 22 pole positions ... 2 titles have been secured with the Huracan GT3.
