Lamborghini and BMW have both teased future GT3 racers this week, ahead of respective racing debuts in 2015 and 2016.

For Italy, Lamborghini’s new Huracan model gets the GT3 treatment as a replacement for the Gallardo GT3; which has seen service at race tracks around the world for several years.

The Huracan GT3 comes less than two months after the Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo was unveiled, with assistance from Italian racing outfit Dallara.

Dallara also had a hand in developing the GT3, along with Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division.

The scene for the GT3’s first shakedown test was Italy’s Vallelunga circuit, with drivers Adrian Zaugg and Fabio Babini on hand to evaluate the new project for Lamborghini (see video, top of page).

Little else is known about the Huracan GT3 at this stage, so for now, we await its racing debut.

For Germany, BMW has been busy with thoughts of future GT3 competition, releasing a pair of teaser sketches of its new M6 GT3 Coupe.

The M6 racer is set to replace the Z4 in GT3 racing by the end of next year, although BMW is yet to fully prepare one in the metal.

"For me, [there] are few things more exciting than the development of a completely new car like the BMW M6 GT3," BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt said.

"This car’s properties make it predestined to succeed the BMW Z4 GT3. We also want to demonstrate the high product substance of BMW M cars in motorsport with the BMW M6 GT3. One thing is certain from the first design sketches - this car is going to have the ‘wow’ factor."

Power for the M6 GT3 is expected to come from a modified version of BMW’s 4.4 litre turbocharged V8, although official figures are yet to be revealed.

BMW plans to open the order book for customer M6 GT3s midway through next year.
