Check out the brand new Lambroghini Huracan STO! Join me for a first look at the latest raging bull, the most hardcore variant of the Huracan, heavily inspired by the Super Trofeo EVO racecar. Could this be the first Lambo Shmeemobile?!
The Huracan STO features numerous inspirations, technologies and developments that come from the company’s Squadra Corse motorsports division working directly with Centro Stile. For example the front clamshell (named Cofango) is a single sandwich construction piece covering the bonnet, fenders and bumper that pivots forwards akin to the legendary Miura. To the rear it’s all drama with a roof snorkel for engine cooling, a shark fin for stability, and a gigantic wing sitting atop aggressive body panel design beneath.
Powered by the familiar 5.2l NA V10, the STO has 640hp and 585Nm, all of which goes through a 7 speed dual clutch to the rear wheels – yes, no 4 wheel drive for this model. That means 0-100km/h (62mph) is 3.0s, 0-200km/h (124mph) is 9.0s and a top speed of 310km/h (193mph), but this is very much a car for the track. The ANIMA Driving Mode selector now defaults to STO mode, and offers Trofeo for the track, and Pioggia for wet conditions, while there’s also a Brake Performance Monitor display offered through the HMI to give live data on the new CCM-R braking system.
The racing intentions are emphasised by the change of purpose; gone is the front storage area in favour of airflow managed through the area, with a small space to fit a helmet. Equally the space behind the seats is replaced with a titanium roll cage for mounting the 4 point seatbelts to secure the occupants into the new carbon fibre sports bucket seats.
Join me then to take you through the new Lamborghini Huracan STO in detail, with some special video footage direct from the studio in Italy of the latest raging bull. With my name currently down on the list, this could be the first Lamborghini Shmeemobile in the garage!
Thanks for watching, Tim
