Click above for high-res gallery of the DP7 Racing Gallardo GTR

Lamborghini doesn't exactly have a storied history in motorsports, but that doesn't mean its current lineup doesn't offer a suitable platform to go racing. DP7 Racing has selected the Gallardo GTR to compete in the SCCA World Challenge next year, and they came out to SEMA to show off their newly finished racecar that will take on the likes of Porsches, Corvettes, and Vipers in the GT class. The GTR received the full racecar makeover including a widened carbon fiber body, front splitter and rear diffuser, fully adjustable suspension, Hollinger sequential 6-speed transmission, and CCW aluminum racing wheels. The 5.0L V10 is now producing 570 bhp and 450 lb-ft torque thanks in part to a set of Hedman headers and a Motec engine management system. You can check out the car in the gallery below, and we'll hopefully make it to one of the World Challenge races next year to see it on track.

      It must be nice to have enough money not only to own a Gallardo, but to race-prep one. I mean...it costs about $280,000 to get a fully race-prepped 350z. Can you imagine what this costs?

      I was wondering how they were going to strengthen the tranny since Lambo trannies and clutches seem to be made of glass. Easy, replace it with a better one.

      So, it's using the old 5.0L engine, not the new 5.2L unit? Very confusing.

      Remember how Lambo promised a handful of new vehicles......
      Please say that this doesn't count!
      I love the car, but want something that's ACTUALLY NEW

      There is going to be some awesome freakin road racing coming up in the next couple years. BMW bringing the new M3 to ALMS, the Camaro also to ALMS, this to SWC... and who knows what else.

        What Camaro in ALMS? The only one I know of is going to the Koni Series.

      Is this series basically the SCCA version of the FIA GT3
      championship?

      Hedman headers on a Gallardo?
