Inspired by competition, the Lamborghini Huracan STO is road-legal, but made for the track.

Here is the Lamborghini Huracan STO, the object of rumors and “stolen” pictures for more than a year now. Its suffix means “Super Trofeo Omologata” to underline its kinship with the Huracan Super Trofeo racing car. This kinship is obvious at first glance from the imposing manually adjustable rear wing at the stern of the coupe, and it doesn’t stop there.

At the front, the hood, wings and shield are all in one piece nicknamed “cofango” (a contraction of the words meaning “hood” and “wing” in Italian), which is equipped with extractors on its upper part. At the rear, there is an additional air intake on the roof, a longitudinal wing as well as a redesigned and ventilated engine hood. The body is made of more than 75% carbon fiber. The interior mixes alcantara and carbon parts, right down to the floor mats.Lamborghini Huracan

Beyond the power

The Huracan STO uses the atmospheric 640hp 5.2L V10 V10 of the Huracan Performante and Huracan Evo, but this block only sends its 565Nm of torque (5Nm more than the Evo) to the rear wheels. The car takes its four-wheel steering from the Evo version, which does not prevent it from weighing 43kg less than the Performante with 1.339kg dry weight according to Lamborghini.

Compared to a standard Huracan, its tracks have been widened and its suspension strengthened. Its anti-roll bars are specific to the Huracan, as are its brakes. Both the engine response and the electronic control systems have been calibrated specifically for this model. Three new driving modes are proposed: Trofeo for the track, STO for the road and Pioggia for the rain.

In terms of performance, the bull manufacturer announces a time of 3s to go from 0 to 100 km/h, 9s to reach 200 km/h, and a top speed of 310 km/h. The firm points out that the Huracan STO is designed to break records on the track, and we can easily imagine it trying to demonstrate this in the near future.

The Lamborghini Huracan STO is priced at $242,412 excluding taxes. The first deliveries are scheduled for spring 2021.
