The as yet unnamed car will be entered under the Lamborghini Iron Lynx banner in both series, although the Italian manufacturer has yet to reveal how many cars it will enter in each championship.

Iron Lynx has campaigned with Ferraris for the past few years and is currently featured in the WEC, European Le Mans Series and GT World Challenge Europe in addition to single-make championships.

The team will switch to the updated Lamborghini Huracan Evo2 GT3 for 2023 and field a car under its own name in GTWCE Endurance and all four rounds of the IMSA Endurance Cup.

It will also enter an all-female Iron Dames car in both series, while a third car will contest the 24 Hours of Daytona, which will open the IMSA season.

Cooperation between Iron Lynx and single-seater powerhouse Prema will also continue on the Lamborghini program following the unification of the two teams under the ownership of Deborah Mayer’s DC Racing Solutions company.

Prema made his sports car racing debut in LMP2 this year in the WEC and ELMS with an ORECA 07 Gibson and won the latter title on first demand.

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said: “Since we announced our intention to race in the LMDh racing series, it was clear to us that Iron Lynx was the right partner to take such an important step with.

“I am delighted to welcome the team to the Lamborghini family; Over the years, Iron Lynx has proven to be a fast, strong and capable entity, much like the Lamborghini Motorsport department.

The announcement was made during the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Grand Final in Portimao, where Iron Lynx competes against ELMS race winners Michelle Gatting and Doriane Pin.

Giorgio Sanna, boss of Lamborghini Motorsport, added: “I am extremely proud of the partnership with Iron Lynx.

“It’s a team as young as Lamborghini Squadra Corse, which, like us, has grown exponentially over the years and has become a protagonist in GT racing around the world after making its Super Trofeo debut with us in 2018.

“Now we meet together and we will strive to be stronger and more mature and set ourselves big goals.

“From GT programs to LMDh, we have combined the excellence of three Italian organisations, while benefiting from a technical partnership with Prema Engineering via Iron Lynx, with whom it is our duty to obtain excellent results.”

Lamborghini announced earlier this year that the car will be powered by an all-new twin-turbo V8 and developed with Ligier Automotive, with the French firm’s LMP2 chassis forming the basis of the new machine.

Development will be led by Lamborghini factory aces Mirko Bortolotti and Andrea Caldarelli.
