MotorCrush’s Andy Lally and the Magnus racing team are kicking off their 2019 season this weekend in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. They have parted ways with their Audi R8 and have picked up a shiny new Lamborghini. More specifically, a 2019 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo; it’s the most aggressive car in Lamborghini’s line up and has been tailored for one thing: speed.
The Evo is based on the original Huracán GT3, which debuted in 2015. Since then, the car has earned some serious respect on the track, thanks to some championship victories in last year’s Blancpain GT Series Asia and IMSA GT Daytona. For the 2019 GT3 Evo, Lamborghini has improved upon the previous GT3’s aerodynamics to further increase downforce which improves stability and reduces pitch sensitivity (the change in downforce resulting from a change in pitch angle). The new car is based on a hybrid body shell made of carbon fiber reinforced aluminum. To power the car, Lamborghini has sourced the 5.2L V10 from the Huracán Performate road car and modified it to fit within GT3 horsepower regulations. Overall, it may have less power, but it more than compensates for that in weight savings.
We are excited to see how to new Evo performs this year compared to its previous generation. And with their new set of wheels, Magnus Racing will be a team to keep your eye on this weekend. You can cheer on Andy in the #44 Evo on NBC Sports or IMSA TV., today starting at 2pm EST.

Jesse was this month’s 100K sweepstakes monthly drawing winner and he is also this week’s featured garage. His garage includes a JDM classic: the 1987 Supra and Yamaha’s flagship superbike: the Yamaha R1. Both of which have a host of aftermarket upgrades. We’ll start off with the R1 to save the best for last. On the R1, you will find an upgraded KR Tuned exhaust, stainless steel brake lines, Graves velocity stacks, rearsets, smog delete, and various exterior modifications. These are some solid upgrades that make for a very quick bike. Now for the Supra: Jesse first picked it up 15 years ago as a non-turbo automatic. Since then, he has restored and modified this car into a stunning work of art and engineering. Jesse’s has a grocery list of mods, but the car’s most notable feature lurks under its hood. In the spotless engine bay, you will find a twin charged 7m with a Holset hy-35 turbo and an Eaton m62 supercharger on a fully custom setup. This is a very impressive build that deserves some respect, so make sure you drop Jesse a like via the like via the button below!
