A GRUNTY Lamborghini Huracan GT3 that has multiple Bathurst 12 Hour starts to its name and won at The Bend last year in the Australian Endurance Championship in the hands of Shane van Gisbergen has popped up for sale.

The car was purchased brand new from the Lamborghini factory in 2016 and has been raced by the Trofeo Motorsport squad. 

van Gisbergen and Liam Talbot drove it to victory at The Bend last year in the Australian Endurance Championship round and it also won the Gold Coast AGT round in the hands of Ryan Millier.

This Huracan has made four starts in the Bathurst 12 Hour, finishing 10th overall (and third in class) in 2017, eighth in 2018 (fourth in class), DNF in 2019 with engine issues and 19th (fourth in class) this year.

A photo of each of its starts – and indeed a photo of every car from every year of the GT3 era of the Bathurst 12 Hour from 2011 to 2020 – is included in our new, limited edition book documenting the history of the race.

It’s available to order here now – there are just 1200 copies available and stock is selling fast!

The Lamborghini – which has a price tag of $454,990 – comes with three sets of wheels, air spike, air jack safety stands, data download cable, spare wheel nuts, wheel nut sockets, additional brakes, springs and camber shims with a large additional parts package available.

The chassis has completed 24,699 kilometres of on-track running and engine has 7658km of use with no running on the gearbox, according to information published on the car’s advertisement on my105.com.
