Developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corsa, the company’s race car series, the Super Trofeo Omologata (STO) is a road-homologated super sports car which claims to offer the highest level of downforce in its class and best aerodynamic balance in a rear-wheel drive car.
In terms of engine and transmission, the new Lamborghini Huracan STO features a powerful V10 naturally aspirated engine which churns out 640bhp and 565Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The rear-wheel Huracan STO accelerates from 0 to 100kmph in 3 seconds and from 0 to 200kmph in 9 seconds. It reaches a top speed of 310kmph.
Huracan STO’s exterior embraces a unique cofango, a one-piece carbon-fibre component comprising the front bonnet, fender and front bumper. It also features the front splitter and louvers on the front wheelhouses, rear fender with NACA air intake, rear engine bonnet with air scoop and an integrated shark fin, and a manually adjustable rear wing.
Huracan STO’s interior focusses the lightweight design. It embeds carbon fiber floor mats, door panels, and door opening latch with a racing helmet storage compartment in the front trunk. It also includes an updated infotainment system with connected telemetry system to monitor and record the track performance.
Lamborghini Huracan STO offers three new driving modes- STO, Trofeo and Pioggia to the customers. The STO mode is ideal for road driving and for curvy roads. The Trofeo mode is ideal for arid conditions while the Pioggia (rain) mode is optimised for wet asphalt.
Lamborghini claimed that the Huracan STO used carbon fiber as a major material for its exterior panels. It has a dry weight of 1,339 kg, which is less by 43 kg compared to the Huracan Performante, another lightweight model of the Huracan series.
Lamborghini Huracan STO is likely to compete with the likes of Ferrari 488 Pista, Porsche 911 GT2 RS, and Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series.
