The Official Press Release Of Murciélago LP670 R-SV
New Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670 R-SV for the FIA GT1 World Championship 2010 from REITER ENGINEERING.
The new REITER Lamborghini LP670 R-SV can be unveiled to the public only a few months after the street version was officially presented in Geneva. The new Lamborghini GT1 race car is presented to the public at the 24-hours of Spa. The car is based on the production Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 model. It is equipped with a new, more powerful 6.5 V12 engine producing 670 PS/493 kW (without restrictor), which propels the wild bull with a torque of 660 Nm (@ 6,500 rpm). The FIA-ECU from Magneti Marelli regulates the engine control.
The REITER Lamborghini P670 R-SV is designed and manufactured to comply with the FIA 2010 regulations. The FIA allows only 6 automobile brands to be nominated. The race car is targeting to be nominated for the GT World Championship.
The GT1 machine from REITER measures 4800 mm in length and is 2058 mm wide. The total weight is only 1,150 kg (+ ballast to correspond with the FIA 2010 regulations).
A complete carbon outer skin clothes the Lamborghini racer. Its new visual appearance is unmistakable, extreme and uncompromising. The significantly modified aerodynamics improves the aerodynamic efficiency compared to its predecessor the Murciélago R-GT.
In addition, the engineers could also improve the suspension geometry. Compared to its forerunner, the new suspension geometry with modified roll-center height and improved steering geometry, modified track width and re-engineered suspension components characterize the new Lamborghini race car.
The race braking system, comprised of carbon disks and pads, was also re-engineered and is now equipped with superior cooling.
