Based on the new Gallardo MY13, a focus of the new GT3 FL2’s development is on long-distance performance and includes ‘24-hour’ brakes, improved engine cooling and reduced fuel consumption. The car features a highly efficient aero kit, a new front splitter, a rear carbon diffuser based on that developed for the Super Trofeo and an overall improved power to weight performance, with the GT3 FL2’s weight reduced by 25kg over the previous Gallardo GT3.
Although German-based Reiter Engineering has successfully developed its own Lamborghini GT cars since 2000, securing 199 victories and 350 podium positions within GT championships since 2007, this is the first time a GT3 contender will be co-developed in direct collaboration with Lamborghini.
First confirmed deliveries of the new Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2 to teams in Europe and Asia will commence in March 2013, participating in series including the Blancpain Endurance Series, the Asia Le Mans Series and the Italian GT3 Championship.
An expanded in-house motorsport team within Lamborghini’s R&D department will oversee the GT3 race programme, under the guise of Lamborghini Squadra Corse: a department dedicated to motorsport including GT3, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series, and a customer driving program.
