Lamborghini super sports cars are a truly interesting breed. They possess a rich heritage yet are still in sync with the latest technology. Case in point is the newest one to roll out of the Sant’Agata Bolognese headquarters, the Lamborghini Huracan STO.
The Huracan’s Super Trofeo Omologata edition takes its cue from race cars like the Huracan EVO Super Trofeo and Huracan EVO GT3. Moreover, the road homologation number’s design, known as Cofango (a play of the Italian words cofano (hood) and parafango (fender) ) takes inspiration from legends like the Miura.
Yet as mentioned above, this one features a host of modern technologies such as the Lamborghini Connected Cloud that connects the cars’ systems to the owner via the Lamborghini UNICA app. This gives owners the ability to control and monitor various functions using remote telemetry.
Beyond being able to remotely control one’s car and its different variables, the joy of owning a Huracan STO is about the drive. Here, one will get the potent force of 640bhp and 417lb-ft of torque from a naturally-aspirated V10 engine. This allows the it to rocket from 0-100km/h in just 3 seconds, hit 200km/h from rest in 9 ticks, and go all the way to a 310km/h top speed.
As if this isn’t enough, drovers can select from three driving modes: STO or Normal, Trofeo or Racing Mode, and Pioggia or Rain Wet Mode. It’s like having three different set ups in one car.
And this has always been the essence of a Lamborghini—offering dynamic driving performance with the aid of modern technology, not necessarily taking over but helping to keep you from getting carried away.
