Reiter Engineering ushered in the New Year by showing off their 2012 GT3 race package for Lamborghini‘s Gallardo LP600+. The 2012 update consists of some major upgrades as Hans Reiter confirmed that endurance racing will be their next step in development.

Reiter Engineering’s goal for 2012 is to have a safe and reliable car for long distance races. In short, they hope to have a winning 24-hour race car. So upgrades to their 2012 GT3 package include a new 2012 Holinger gearbox that is lighter and consists of less parts that can break. On the outside, the LP600+ now has a larger splitter and double dive plates on the front bumper corners for additional downforce.

Currently still under development is the suspension, being retuned for more mechanical grip while reducing tire scrub. For braking, a new AP Racing brake kit will be used, equipped with six-piston calipers and reworked brake cooling in the front to improve braking performance on long races.

Power will remain unchanged from the 5.2L V10 with 592-hp. No pricing has been announced for the 2012 edition GT3, but last year’s rendition ran around $373,400 not including taxes.

Reiter Engineering promises that the development of their endurance parts will be ready for the 24 Hours of Dubai and Gulf 12 Hours in Abu Dhabi races.
