The next step in the evolution of the Lamborghini Huracan nameplate has been revealed today, as the automaker unveiled its newest version of the super sports car. The Lamborghini Huracan STO – which stands for Super Trofeo Omologata – is a homologated version of the iconic Lamborghini Squadra Corse Huracan Super Trofeo EVO and the Huracan GT3 EVO, the latter of which has won 12 Hours of Sebring twice and 24 Hours of Daytona thrice! We thought we’d take a look at what’s new in this version – which will begin being delivered in the spring of 2021 – compared to the current iteration of the Lamborghini Huracan, including some of its performance specs & features.
“The Huracan STO delivers all the excitement of a beautifully balanced, lightweight and aerodynamically superior sports car, mirroring the driving feeling and exhilaration of Super Trofeo, and perfectly set up for the world’s most demanding tracks but created for the road. The extensive technical solutions and intelligence gained from both our Super Trofeo and GT3 programs has been refined and embodied in the Huracan STO, allowing the pilot to experience the emotions of a racing driver, daily, in a road-legal Lamborghini super sports car able to take lap records.”
– Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer, Automobili Lamborghini
Powered by a 5.2L V10 engine, the new Lamborghini Huracan STO is capable of generating up to 640 horsepower alongside 417 pound-feet of torque. If you’re wondering, that’s 30 hp more than the standard Huracan EVO, and 10 hp more than the Huracan Performante. That kind of power enables the newest version of the Huracan to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3 seconds flat, or from 0-124 mph in 9 s. On the flip side, it can brake from a speed of 62 mph to a complete stop in 98.4 feet, or 360.9 ft. from 124 mph. Plus, it can hit a top speed of 193 mph.
Here’s a quick overview of some of the new features that will make the Lamborghini Huracan STO such a fantastic vehicle:
- Cofango featuring air ducts, front splitter, louvers
- Rear fender, featuring NACA air intake
- Rear engine bonnet, featuring air scoop
- Shark fin
- Adjustable rear wing
- Brake cooling ducts
- New ANIMA Driving modes, featuring STO, Trofeo and Pioggia
- CCM-R braking system
