The Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT is a race-only version of the Murcielago, developed jointly with Reiter Engineering and Audi Sport. It has rear-wheel drive unlike the standard Murcielago to comply with the FIA, ACO, and JAF rules. Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT retains the standard Murcielago V12, but has air restrictors to manage power. Its acceleration and top speed are highly dependent on the gearing selected for a particular race track. In March 2006 at the Super GT Suzuka 500 km, a Murcielago R-GT specifically built for Super GT for the Japanese Lamborghini Owners Club recorded the first win ever for a Murcielago when they earned a win in the GT300 class. In March 2007 in the FIA GT Championship, the All-Inkl.com Racing Murcielago won the Zhuhai 2 Hours. In December 2006, Reiter Engineering tested an upgraded Murcielago R-GT LM, featuring redesigned body work and a new rear wing with less drag.
