The aerodynamic package gets complete with the colossal adjustable double-profile rear wing.

In a bid to ensure maximum agility and stability on the most demanding tracks, Lamborghini has adopted kinematic suspension solutions inspired by racing prototypes. It includes a push-rod rear suspension installed directly on the gearbox and it is equipped with specific slick Pirelli tires mounted on magnesium rims - 19-inch up front and 20-inch at the rear. The disc brakes and callipers have been developed by Brembo Motorsport. Aerodynamics have been developed by Lamborghini's Squadra Corse GT racing experience to ensure a high level of efficiency and even higher downforce levels than a GT3 car, generating downforce of up to 1,200 kg at 250 kmph. The front hood has a double air intake with a central rib, typical of the Huracan racing cars, which separates the hot airflow coming from the radiator and transports the cold air to the airscoop located on the roof. The front features a splitter and two lateral elements on the sides. The flows for engine and gearbox cooling have been optimised through the use of vertical fins situated on the sides. The aerodynamic package gets complete with the colossal adjustable double-profile rear wing.

The Italian brands says that it's engineers have tried to bring the best amalgamation of lightweight, functionality and design.

You'll be surprised to know that the design of this new-age machine is inspired by the 1970s prototypes and elements, like the hexagonal geometry that characterises the front headlights and the roof airscoop and air vents that frame the steering wheel. The "Y-shaped" elements which are so typical of Lamborghinis are apparent on the design. The Italian brand says that its engineers have tried to bring the best amalgamation of lightweight, functionality and design. In fact, the instrument panel and dashboard are supported by an asymmetrical carbon "Y". The design of the multi-function steering wheel with display was inspired by F1 single-seater steering wheel and it offers the best ergonomics, ensuring the driver does not need to remove his hands from the steering wheel. The FIA homologated OMP seat with carbon shell ensures comfort, safety and stability.
