A few years after it released a GT3 race version for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560, Reiter Engineering is back with a new GTS-spec Gallardo: the 2011 Lamborghini LP600+ GT3. Based on the Gallardo LP560-4, Reiter Engineering tweaked the supercar and turned it into a race-spec version that will compete in GT3 races for the 2011 season.
Reiter Engineering is no stranger to producing race-winning GT3 racers. Their previous work – the Gallardo LP560 GT3 – sold more than 50 examples worldwide while also dominating races in the GT3 class of various racing series all over the world.
For the latest version, Reiter Engineering is pulling out all the stops in ensuring that the LP600+ GT3 race car will take after its predecessors in dominating GT3-class races for the 2011 season. No word yet on which team is interested in getting these bad boys, but we’re sure that Reiter’s new Lamborghini GT3 racer will see a lot of GT3 starting grids in the near future.
Details after the jump.
Exterior and Interior
The 2011 iteration of the Gallardo LP600+ GT3 racer comes with a few updates, including a new front splitter, a new exhaust system, a redesigned hood, new gear ratios, and a rear spoiler.
On top of that, Reiter Engineering also used an extensive amount of carbon fiber on the car to go along with the lightweight, structural aluminum space frame that was based on aluminum extruded parts welded to aluminum caster joint elements. The LP6000+ also comes with an AP brake system with ventilated brake discs while also boasting of a few original Reiter Engineering items, including a double wishbone front and rear suspension, an anti-roll bar, anti-dive and anti squat, racing shocks and springs, and lastly, a set of 18-inch magnesium wheels with racing slick tires. All the changes reduces the Lamborghini’s weight to about 1,990 kg.
The 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP600+ GT3 is powered by the same 5.2-liter V10 engine as with its GT3 brethren, only this time, Reiter Engineering tweaked and updated the engine, making it capable of producing over 600 horsepower at 8,000 RPM.
Excluding VAT, Reiter Engineering’s new LP600+ GT3 will cost around $385,774.
The LP600+ GT3 faces stiff competition considering that the car competes in GT3-class competitions. Among the notable thorns on its side, include the Ferrari 430 Scuderia GT, the McLaren MP4-12C GT3, the BMW Z4 GT3, and the Ford GT GT3.
