We did show you couple of videos of Lamborghini teasing their latest GT3 race car earlier. Based on their latest road going car Huracan the Huracan GT3 is now out infront of the public. In this video you can watch Autocar UK gets behind the wheels of this mean Green machine which has been built specifically to participate in endurance races.

Built in partnership with chassis specialist Dallara, the Huracan GT3 too uses the same V10 unit which also powers their road going car. This car is off course is really special for the Italian supercar manufacturer Lamborghini because the Huracan GT3 is built and developed inside their headquarters for the very first time. The Huracan GT3 is also built keeping in mind the International FIA GT3 regulations, the Huracan GT3 will compete with some other GT3 race cars from Audi, Ferraris, Mclaren and Mercedes.

The Huracan GT3 actually weighs almost 200 Kilograms lesser than the road going Huracan and its aerodynamics and suspension too has been developed in partnership with Dallara. This GT3 race car obviously handles a lot different than the road going car and also sounds different but according to Autocar UK this car is actually easy to handle which is definitely a plus point.

Enjoy the video and do let us know which you’re your favorite GT3 race car of all time.

When we talk about Aston Martin the character or the person that comes to our mind first is definitely 007 better known as Mr. Bond. Evo got their hands on an Aston Martin and actually took it to a place which definitely is one of the most beautiful places of the World, Scotland.

The person here drives the car through the old Military road in Cairngorm, Scotland which starts all the way from Bulgary.
