If you are a supercar aficionado looking for the next big thing rocking the industry, then the Lamborghini Huracán STO is definitely the ultimate automobile of your petrol-fueled dreams. Succeeding the Huracán Performante releaed in 2017, the STO – which stands for ‘Super Trofeo Omologato’ (the operative word being ‘omologato’ or ‘homologation’ in English), is by far the closest thing you will get to a road-legal variation of the Super Trofeo supercar.
The Lamborghini Huracán STO is mainly powered by an exceptional 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine which can yield 640 CV at 8,000 revolutions per minute and 565 Nm of toque at 6,500 rpm. Complimenting the exceptionally performing engine of the Huracán STO is a record-breaking capability to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds, with top speeds reaching up to 310 km/h.
The Huracán STO also passes the safety department with a reliable braking system molded around a specially designed and Formula 1 racing-based CCMR carbon-ceramic brake disc developed by Italian brake manufacturer Brembo. The Huracán STO is also equipped with a lengthened brake pedal, higher aerodynamic load, and a high-performing brake cooling system to ensure the safest driving experience even when gearing towards supersonic speeds.
As expected of Lamborghini, although the Huracán STO is designed and developed to perform under street-legal limits, the racecar aesthetic never goes away with the featured supercar. The Huracán STO boasts several features which drastically improve aerodynamic performance such as airflow-distributing splitters and air ducts in the front – and a shark fin in the rear portion of the racecar which is perfect for corners.
Weighing 43 kg lighter than the Huracán Performante, the STO is manufactured with feather-like carbon fiber body panels, magnesium rims, and a titanium rear arch which makes you feel like you’re floating in the air. The Huracán STO is set for release in Spring 2021.
