The Lamborghini Huracán STO’s V10 has a naturally aspirated 640 hp (470 kW) power plant producing 565 Nm at 6,500 rpm. With the rear-wheel drive of the Huracán STO delivering a thrilling 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, the driver is guaranteed to experience the emotion and exhilaration of a true race car. The sports car’s incredible aerodynamic efficiency, skillful use of lightweight materials, unrestricted steering, and first-class braking performance, provide for a ride fit for the track on every road drive. 

“The Huracán STO is the purest incarnation of Lamborghini Squadra Corse heritage, directly transferring technologies from the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and drawing on the Huracán GT3 EVO’s unique accomplishment of winning three consecutive times in the Daytona 24 hours,” shares Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer. “The extensive technical solutions and intelligence gained from both our Super Trofeo and GT3 programs has been refined and embodied in the Huracán 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.”

In placing function at the forefront of design, Lamborghini creates an inimitable new exterior for the Huracán STO that optimizes airflow. Apt for a street-homologated car inspired by a racecar, while still aesthetically renowned, every line and feature works to ensure optimal driving performance. Lamborghini’s R&D, Squadra Corse, and Centro Stile departments collaborated on the Huracán STO in an effort to maximize the aerodynamic efficiency and lightweight technologies found in motorsports.  

   

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