2013 Reiter Gallardo GT3 FL2

Sant’Agata Bolognese, 28 January 2013. Automobili Lamborghini has announced a new GT3 motorsport program. The long-term agreement will commence with a new car for the 2013 and 2014 seasons: the Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2, developed by Reiter Engineering in cooperation with Lamborghini’s R&D motorsport department.

Based on the new Gallardo MY13, a focus of the new GT3 FL2’s development is on long-distance performance and includes ‘24-hour’ brakes, improved engine cooling and reduced fuel consumption. The car features a highly efficient aero kit, a new front splitter, a rear carbon diffuser based on that developed for the Super Trofeo and an overall improved power to weight performance, with the GT3 FL2’s weight reduced by 25kg over the previous Gallardo GT3.

The Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2 by Reiter has already proven exceptionally low running costs, setting a benchmark with only €9/km to €12/km parts rebuild costs.

The GT3 FL2 is priced at €320,000 euro plus taxes.

Although German-based Reiter Engineering has successfully developed its own Lamborghini GT cars since 2000, se curing 199 victories and 350 podium positions within GT championships since 2007, this is the first time a GT3 contender will be co-developed in direct collaboration with Lamborghini.

“We are delighted to announce a minimum five-year agreement with Reiter Engineering as our exclusive development and supply partner for Lamborghini GT3 cars, based on Reiter’s strong engineering skills, passion for and understanding of the Lamborghini brand and, of course, obvious racing success,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “We are committed to supporting racing in Europe and Asia in2013 with expansion into the USA in2014: GT3 racing, together with ourhighly successful mono marqueLamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo seriesin Europe, Asia and this year the USA,are a clear fit with the Lamborghinibrand, where we take the prowess of our super sports cars from the road tothe track.”

First confirmed deliveries of the new Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2 to teams in Europe and Asia will commence in March 2013, participating in series including the Blancpain Endurance Series, the Asia Le Mans Series and the Italian GT3 Championship.
