In the midst of all the new racing machines being introduced for the 2011 racing season, West Racing has just received their Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560 GT which they will enter into this year’s AmericanLe Mans Series. The supercar, which was developed in cooperation with tire partner Yokohama, will be undergoing its first testings at Sebring in late January and will also participate in the annual ALMS Winter Test from February 9th-10th.

The racing car is based on the Gallardo LP560-4 which is powered by the new 5.2 liter V10 engine with an output of 560 HP at 8000 rpm. With this base engine, the Gallardo receives a 40 PS increase compared to that of the previous model. The LP560-4 accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and from 0-124 mph in 11.8 seconds. Top speed lies at 201 mph. The racing Lambo’s specifications are still being kept under wraps, but we expect to see improved aerodynamics, even if the engine remains largely unchanged.

West Racing expects to have its driver lineup ready by the end of the year.

V10 engine is really great, but it is more awesome if it is on a V12. Anyway, the front bumper of this GT adds more aggressiveness on it. However, I wonder if what’s the official details of this vehicle?

With the V10 engines are great for this car. The front bumper of this car is really great and the style of this car is great. The design is simple.

I think this is the ugliest Lamborghini that I have seen! And it seems that the vehicle is kind of bloat loaded! BTW, the figure performance of v10 is kind of less powerful.

Well, as a racing I think it looks bigger from the front and strong color black plus the exaggerated design for the spoiler makes the car heavier. But in totality the cars look awesome as usual!

Hideous! Due to the large front bumper it actually lie on the ground. This car need a serious facelift! I think it has a excessive detailing on its exterior and it actually makes me to conclude that this car weighs too much!

Lamborghini cost a lot perhaps we could deny the fact how good is this car. But obviously there are lot of option in the market like Porsche GT3RS or GT2 or a Nissan GT-R or GT-R Spec V.

This racing car is based on the Gallardo LP560-4 ,i can say that it will take a lots of awards of winning competition.

My mistake, GT3 RSR is actually a GT2 car. More appropriate would be GT3 Cup.

A more logical comparison would be to Porsche GT3 RSR or Aston Martin DBRS9 (both of which are also fully prepped GT3 racers, not street cars).

The Italian monster will meet the track for the first testing session in late January, when the team is heading for Sebring. Subsequently, the car will take part in the annual ALMS Winter Test, which is scheduled to be held on February 9-10.

nice.. super enhanced LP560, i wonder if they can get a profit out of a single lambo that was custom ed from a well known tuner.

cool, they are getting ready for the next big race event, I hope they can get a title on the upcoming competition.

I guess that made the Lambo an erratic car requiring that kind of jerks. In fact, isn’t that what RWD Lambo used to be?
