A Lam­borgh­ini Record

Lam­borgh­ini Squadra Corse sets a new record with over 200 rac­ing cars pro­duced in 24 months

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

From 2015 to 18 Jan­uary 2016, the Lam­borgh­ini Squadra Corse man­aged to pro­duce its 201st car, a GT3, com­ing out of the pro­duc­tion line at Sat’Agata Bolog­nese, set­ting a new record for the pro­duc­tion house. This is one of the few Mo­tor­sport de­part­ments in the world that prides it­self on man­u­fac­tur­ing its own rac­ing cars on the same pro­duc­tion line as its road car, both within the same fa­cil­ity. Rac­ing cars are fol­lowed along each assem­bly sta­tion by skilled and qual­i­fied tech­ni­cians from Lam­borgh­ini Squadra Corse to en­sure max­i­mum care in the assem­bly.

Rac­ing and road cars be­ing pro­duced to­gether in­creases its pro­duc­tion value. Pro­duc­tion times are greatly re­duced and the high­est qual­ity con­trol stan­dards are al­ways guar­an­teed, in this case, trans­lates into greater re­li­a­bil­ity on tracks. For a Mo­tor­sport depart­ment, these are ex­tra­or­di­nary num­bers, con­sid­er­ing the lim­ited time frame in which these cars are built.

“These fig­ures show once more the great com­mer­cial and sport­ing suc­cess of the Hu­racán Su­per Tro­feo and GT3, a re­sult we want to share with all our cus­tomer teams in­vest­ing in our Mo­tor­sport pro­grams and prod­ucts. A spe­cial thanks also goes to the Squadra Corse staff and all busi­ness ar­eas of Au­to­mo­bili Lam­borgh­ini con­tribut­ing to achieve im­por­tant re­sults ev­ery day,” said Gior­gio Sanna, Head of Mo­tor­sport at Au­to­mo­bili Lam­borgh­ini.

The Hu­racán Su­per Tro­feo made its first public ap­pear­ance in Au­gust 2014, dur­ing the Pebble Beach Con­cours d’El­e­gance in Cal­i­for­nia and start­ing rac­ing in the 2015 sea­son. Over 140 units were pro­duced in the course of two years at full pro­duc­tion. The GT3 ver­sion, dif­fers in terms of a slightly more so­phis­ti­cated aero­dy­namic kine­matic, mak­ing its rac­ing de­but in 2015 (and win­ning the En­durance race of the Blancpain GT Se­ries at Monza).
