The Murciélago R-GT, developed jointly with renowned race engineering company Reiter Engineering in Germany, and parent company Audi's sports division Audi Sport, will offer Lamborghini clients a highly competitive car with which to participate in global professional motorsport.

Promising Potential
Built to the specification of FIA and ACO regulations, the R-GT was equipped with a Lamborghini air restricted 6 litre V12 engine, developing a highly competitive power output. The drive train, converted from the Murciélago permanent 4WD to RWD, as per the FIA/ACO regulations, sports a sequential gearbox.
With a sub 500.000€ price tag the R-GT was to be the ultimate package for customer teams upgrading from N-GT to GTS.

Reversal of fortune
Following the launch at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Reiter Engineering started a test and development programme, planning to enter the R-GT in the last FIA GT rounds at Estoril and Monza. But from there on the promising project seemed to take a dive. Citing lack of development time the car missed Estoril, and although it did show promising figures at Monza's practice, the car was withdraw before the race. Besides suffering from an engine glitch Reiter noted that the R-GT lacked straight-line speed. Continuing to race would have caused unnecessary engine damage.

Come the FIA GT pre season test at Monza March 2004 all had fallen quit on the Ranging Bull.
Lack of client interest might be the problem.
Lets hope the Murcielago saga be continued
