Lamborghini Huracan STO: Road-Legal Racer

Lamborghini Huracan STO: Road-Legal Racer

Published: November 21, 2020 | By: American Luxury Staff

This week, Lamborghini unveiled the newest in the Huracán lineup: the 2021 STO—that is, Super Trofeo Omologato. The variant was designed specifically to bring track-level driving to a road-legal supercar and features Super Trofeo track-car aero, a lightweight chassis, and a new version of the Lamborghini 5.2L V10 engine. It can reach 62 MPH in three seconds, and 124 MPH in 9 on its way to a top speed of over 190 MPH.

The Centro Stile-designed car’s lines distantly echo the Super Trofeo EVO, according to Lamborghini. There’s a lot of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic in the Huracán STO’s body—75% of the panels use it—and that includes the one-piece hood and front fenders. Titanium is used for the rear arch and roll cage, the windshield is 30% lighter than the Huracán, and the rims are magnesium. All told, the curb weight of the STO is a trifle over 3,400 pounds.

Among the STO’s aero components are an air scoop, hood air ducts, louvers, a front splitter, and a dramatic rear wing that can be adjusted in three positions manually. To slow it down is a brake system that uses carbon-ceramic discs by way of Brembo and a dedicated cooling system.

The cabin of the Huracán STO follows suit: lightweight materials, including Carbon Skin, a material Lamborghini has registered as a trademark, and of course a healthy dose of Alcantara. Carbon Skin adorns the door panels, seats, and mats, among other components. The cabin features four-point seatbelts.

The Huracán STO is expected to appear in the spring of next year. Prices will start around $328,000.
