Date:19 November 2020 Author: Kyro Mitchell

Italian supercar maker Lamborghini has unveiled its latest creation, an upgraded version of the Huracán called the Huracán Super Trofeo Omologata, or Huracán STO for short. The vehicle was inspired by Lamborghini’s race cars but is fully legal to drive on public roads.

With its V10 naturally aspirated 470 kW power plant producing 565 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, the rear-wheel-drive Huracán STO delivers exhilarating acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 9.0 seconds, with a top speed of 310 km/h.

Every aspect of the Huracán STO draws on the aerodynamic efficiency and lightweight technologies demanded in motorsports. The Huracán STO embodies the principle that Lamborghini design always follows function: even more valid for a street-homologated car inspired by a racecar.

Racing cars are always a strong inspiration for our design. The Huracán STO exquisitely reflects the technology transfer from our successful Huracán race cars, displayed in every aesthetic detail,” said Mitja Borkert, Head of Design at Lamborghini.

A manual, easily adjusted aero set-up of the new rear wing optimizes aerodynamic balance and drag resistance according to track characteristics. A single slotted wing with a double airfoil allows the front part of the airfoil to rotate into three positions to enhance the rear downforce.

The Huracán STO also makes use of carbon fiber in more than 75% of its exterior panels, benefiting from complex structures produced as a single component for increased integrity while also reducing weight via less fixing points.

“The Huracán STO delivers all the excitement of a beautifully balanced, lightweight and aerodynamically superior super 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,“ said Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer.

The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Huracán STO in spring 2021.
