Hot off the heels of their latest customization program for road going Italian super cars, Reiter Engineering has just unveiled the new LP-670 R-SV GT1 race car at the 24 Hours of Spa. Based on the new Murciélago LP670-4, Reiter’s newest big boy toy is equipped with an all-new, more powerful version of Lamborghini’s 6.5 Liter V12 engine producing a maximum output of 670 HP and a peak torque of 487 lb-ft.

The race spec Lamborghini tips the scales at only 2,535 pounds and features some significantly modified aerodynamics for on track competition that is only accentuated by the oversized GT wing bolted to the rear deck lid. The GT1 Murciélago features a few other modifications in order to get the most out of on track performace mainly consisting of a few hard core suspension components that widen the car’s track and lower its center of gravity greatly improving Reiter’s ability to remain planted when going all out through a turn; all characteristics of the new Lamborghini race car.

Full details after the jump.

The new REITER Lamborghini LP670 R-SV can be unveiled to the public only a few months after the street version was officially presented in Geneva. The new Lamborghini GT1 race car is presented to the public at the 24-hours of Spa. The car is based on the production Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 model. It is equipped with a new, more powerful 6.5 V12 engine producing 670 PS/493 kW (without restrictor), which propels the wild bull with a torque of 660 Nm (@ 6,500 rpm). The FIA-ECU from Magneti Marelli regulates the engine control.

The REITER Lamborghini P670 R-SV is designed and manufactured to comply with the FIA 2010 regulations. The FIA allows only 6 automobile brands to be nominated. The race car is targeting to be nominated for the GT World Championship.

The GT1 machine from REITER measures 4800 mm in length and is 2058 mm wide. The total weight is only 1,150 kg (+ ballast to correspond with the FIA 2010 regulations).

A complete carbon outer skin clothes the Lamborghini racer. Its new visual appearance is unmistakable - extreme and uncompromising. The significantly modified aerodynamics improves the aerodynamic efficiency compared to its predecessor the Murciélago R-GT.

In addition, the engineers could also improve the suspension geometry. Compared to its forerunner, the new suspension geometry with modified roll-centre height and improved steering geometry, modified track width and re-engineered suspension components characterise the new Lamborghini race car.
