More about the car

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP600 GT3 from German race car manufacturer Reiter Engineering, is aimed at taking on some of the world’s most famous 24-hour events.

‘LP600’ refers to the 600PS (441kW) engine of Lamborghini’s 5.2-litre V10 powertrain, which is around a 20kW increase over the LP 570-4 Superleggera variant.

Reiter upgraded the Gallardo LP600 GT3 after winning four GT titles in 2011, in what were essentially shorter sprint races.

Further developments included the new Australian-made Holinger transmission, as well as the car’s aerodynamics kit. The new gearbox was both lighter and faster shifting, while the car benefited from increased downforce due to a larger front splitter and double dive plates.

The company developed the suspension and brake system for the LP600 GT3, to develop more grip and deliver better handling.

An updated braking system with six-piston calipers and new cooling for the front brakes improves performance during endurance races.
