The Lamborghini Huracan STO: Racetrack-Inspired And Road Legal


The Super Trofeo Omologata (STO) is based on the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO and Huracan GT3 EVO, which carry their own racing bragging rights

  • The homologated road-legal STO, at 1,339kg, is 40kg lighter than the Huracan Performante.

  • It gets an F1-inspired CCM-R braking system and three drive modes.

  • The STO is powered by the EVO and ST’s V10, but it’s tuned to put out 640PS and 565Nm.

  • Reaches 0-100 kmph in 3 seconds and 0-200kmph in 9 seconds.

  • Set to hit markets by spring 2021. No word on India launch yet.

Lamborghini has unveiled its latest road-legal offering: the Huracan Super Trofeo Omologata (STO). This beast of a car is a homologated offspring of racing legends like the Huracan GT3 EVO -- a three-time 24 hours of Daytona winner and two-time 12 hours of Sebring winner -- and the Huracan Super Trofeo (ST) EVO, Lambo’s Squadra Corse’s one-make race series.

Despite being road-legal, this Lambo’s design looks anything but suppressed. Like the cars it is based on, and all the fellow Lambos, the Huracan STO is built for speed. The front is built with the bonnet, fender and front bumper, all combined to form a single component, like in motorsport events. Various additions such as the size and positioning of the HUGE air ducts on the bonnet also make the car more aerodynamically sound.

Due to the engine being placed at the rear, the STO gets air intakes in the rear fender, along with a shark fin on the rear bonnet, and an air scoop on the rear hood. The single-slotted rear wing comes with a double airfoil with each airfoil able to position itself at three different angles. Thanks to all the carbon fibre used in the body and the 20-inch magnesium rims, the STO is lighter than the Performante by 40kgs, at 1,339kg.

Inside, the Huracan STO gets befitting carbon-fibre sports seats with four-point seatbelts and an abundance of carbon fibre throughout the cabin. The touchscreen infotainment system comes with new human-machine interface graphics and Lambo’s UNICA app, which allows recording of track performance data and logs. The STO also comes with three ANIMA driving modes: a default STO mode for road driving, Pioggia mode for rainy conditions and enhanced traction control, and Trofeo mode for setting your best laps on an asphalt track.

Now let’s talk about the part you’ve been waiting for: the engine. The Huracan STO is powered by a Squadra Corse 5.0-litre V10 naturally aspirated unit that puts out 640PS and 565Nm, sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed DCT. If the engine seems familiar, that’s because it is a calibrated version of the V10 seen in the Huracan EVO and Super Trofeo. 

The STO gets a power-to-weight ratio of 2.09kg/hp, a 310kmph top speed, and some impressive accolades. These include achieving a nought to 100 kmph acceleration in just 3 seconds and 0-200kmph in 9 seconds! The F1 inspired CCM-R braking system allows it to stop from 100kmph to a dead stop in just 30 meters and from 200kmph in 110 metres.

The racetrack-inspired monster is set to go on sale by spring 2021 in specific markets like the USA, UK, China, Japan, and Europe. There’s no word on its India launch yet.
