2011 Reiter Gallardo LP600+

For the 2011 season, Reiter Engineering in Germany have updated their GT3 contender. Main changes include a new suspension based off the Murciélago LP670 R-SV. Visually the new car is identified by a new front splitter and rear engine deck with rectangular vents and higher-placed exhaust tips.

Designed for GT3 regulations, 600 bhp is now possible up from 560 last year thanks to a new exhaust and intake. This is combined with updated gearbox for a theoretical top speed of 281.81 kph. At the rear is a new exhuast system that exits much higher than the 2010 model.

The cooling system is revised with three radiators ahead of the front wheels that deal with the both the engine and gearbox.

Inside, the dashboard is updated with a new paddle system and digital switch board. Also included is a electronic power management system by OBR. Makrolon windows and carbon-fiber door panels are included.
