A lot of hypercar makers have had race cars that have been tuned for the road. The latest one to give us such a machine is Automobili Lamborghini, which just unveiled the Huracan Super Trofeo Omologata (STO).
An immediate successor to the Huracan Performante and draws inspiration from the Squadra Corse race car, the STO sits above the Huracan EVO and will have a rear-wheel drive layout. Of course, it isn’t merely a souped up Perfomante. Allows us to explain.
First off, the aerodynamic bits like the one piece front bumper, mudguards, and fascia, along with the rear air scoop, and other exterior pieces help make it 53 percent more slippery than the model it replaces.
Then there is the weight, which is pegged at just 1,339kg. This is courtesy of the extensive use of carbon fiber materials throughout the exterior and interior. And as any car enthusiast knows, this and the more slippery shape aid in providing better performance.
Speaking of performance, this one uses the same 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 found on the Huracan Evo and Perfomante that puts out 630bhp. While torque in down at just 417lb-ft, the Huracan STO is still able to provide eye-popping performance figures. Case in point are stats like 0-100km/h in 3 seconds, 0-200km/h in 9 seconds, top speed rated at 310km/h, and braking distances of 100-0km/h in just 30m.
The last one is helped in no small part by upgraded carbon ceramic CCR-M stoppers that not only help eliminate fade but provide powerful stopping force.
The new Lamborghini Huracan STO will be available by the second quarter of 2021.
