Lamborghini Huracan STO, 470 kW for road enjoyment

Edward Green |
Automobili Lamborghini presented the Lamborghini Huracan STO Super Trofeo Omologata: a road homologated super sports car.


With its V10 naturally aspirated 470 kW engine producing 565 Nm on 6,500 rpm, the rear wheel drive Huracan STO delivers exhilarating acceleration of 0 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds, 0 200 km/h in 9.0 seconds and a top speed of 310 km/h. However, its heart beats with the exhilaration and emotion of a racecar. Superior aerodynamic efficiency, extensive use of lightweight materials, unfettered steering and first class braking performance, ensure the Huracan STO delivers the emotion of a track experience on every road drive.

The Huracan STO sports an entirely new exterior design, revising its inimitable Lamborghini profile to optimize airflow. Every aspect of the Huracan STO draws on the aerodynamic efficiency and lightweight technologies demanded in motorsports. The Huracan STO embodies the principle that Lamborghini design always follows function: even more valid for a street homologated car inspired by a racecar. The comprehensive aerodynamic solutions inspired by Squadra Corse racecars maximize aerodynamic performance.

The Huracan STO uses 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. Thanks to this technology, the Huracan STO uses 25% less carbon fiber material while maintaining the same structural rigidity. At a dry weight of 1,339 kg, the Huracan STO’s weight is reduced by 43 kg compared to the already lightweight Huracan Performante.

The Huracan STO has at its heart the V10 aspirated engine of the Huracan EVO and Super Trofeo, outputting 570 kW and 565 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. With an increased wheel track, stiffer suspension bushing, specific anti roll bars and Lamborghini’s MagneRide 2.0, the STO delivers all the emotion of a racecar while providing a comfortable road experience. The engine has been calibrated for a very sporty and responsive racing feel, with a direct pedal to throttle feeling and improved engine sound sharpness at high revs. The gearchange speed has been further increased to provide a highly responsive and rapid gearshift.
