Lamborghini celebrates the production of the 400th Huracán race car
The first Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo was presented to the world in 2014 and the first Huracán GT3 Evo the following year.
Lamborghini celebrates production milestone of 400 Huracan race cars manufactured at the company’s Sant’Agata Bolognese plant since 2014. 400 Huracán Super Trofeo and GT3 have been produced on the same assembly line as the road cars .
The first Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo was introduced to the world in 2014, replacing the Gallardo as the car of choice in Lamborghini’s one-make championship in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. A year later, Lamborghini introduced the Huracán GT3, marking its official entry into GT racing.
Over the next six seasons of the racing championship, the Huracán GT3 and its successor GT3 Evo won nearly 100 races, including a record three consecutive victories at the prestigious 24 Hours of Daytona. Other feats achieved by the GT3 Evo include winning the coveted 12 Hours of Sebring twice as well as the GT World Challenge Europe “triple crown” in 2019. In 2020 alone, 24 different teams represented the Huracán GT3 Evos in 15 national races and international championships, covering a total of 20,000 kilometers through 88 different drivers.

The race car’s production milestone was celebrated at a special event attended by company President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann, Technical Director Maurizio Reggiani, Manufacturing Director Ranieri Niccoli and motorsport director Giorgio Sanna. “In just a few years, Squadra Corse has imposed itself in the most important international competitions and the Huracán GT3 and the Super Trofeo are an undisputed benchmark in the Gran Turismo category,” said Winkelmann.
Also among the guests at the event were various technicians who build the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo and GT3 Evo every day.
Late last year, Lamborghini retired the Huracan STO RWD – a track monster that’s also road legal. It is powered by a V10 engine which helps it to sprint to 100 km/h in three seconds.
