Los Angeles, September 30, 2019 – Tourists and Los Angeles locals alike are encouraged to put the Petersen Automotive Museum on their must-see list, as Automobili Lamborghini today announces a public display of the remarkable #11 Huracán GT3 EVO race car, from GRT Grasser Racing. In celebration of recent motorsports triumphs, Lamborghini is featuring the racecar within the grand lobby entrance of the Petersen Museum through the end of the month.
The breathtaking exhibit exudes speed, with the Huracán GT3 EVO fresh from victories at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring races. An artwork of engineering on wheels, the race car is historically significant in that Lamborghini is the first marque since the introduction of the GTD class with back-to-back wins in both Sebring and Daytona endurance classics, for two consecutive years.
“We’re honored to showcase our triumphs within the halls of a renowned establishment such as the Petersen Automotive Museum,” said Alessandro Farmeschi, Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini Americas. “Lamborghini has blazed the trail as a newcomer in the motorsports arena, becoming the first manufacturer to claim such an achievement since the GTD class was introduced in the IMSA racing league. These historic wins are not only important in the chapters of our racing endeavors, but also for our customers who experience the transfer of this motorsports technology in our lineup of super sports cars.”
The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO competition car boasts a 5.2-liter, naturally aspirated V10 engine, derived from the latest generation of the road-going Huracán sports car. Developed entirely at the Italian marque’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, by Squadra Corse, Lamborghini’s motorsport division, the race car is primarily made of aluminum and reinforced carbon-fiber with a new roll cage that extends to the rear. The new aerodynamic solutions have considerably increased the aerodynamic load to further improve stability. This evolution of the GT3 race car made its track debut at the 2019 24 Hours of Daytona.
The #11 Huracán GT3 EVO will be on display at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles’s Miracle Mile district through October 31, 2019, located at 6060 West Wilshire Boulevard.
