Since 2009, Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse has been holding the Super Trofeo series, a one-make championship event consisting of six rounds across four classes. With a different series taking place in America, Asia, and Europe each year, it’s one of the best opportunities to see what Lambo’s supercars can do when the rules of the road no longer apply.
With the announcement of the Huracán STO, the illustrious Italian marque is bringing its racing pedigree to the street. And although it’s powered by the same 5.2L V10 as the Huracán EVO, the STO is far more than just a derivative. For starters, it sheds 43kg (95lb) from the already lightweight Performante car, a weight loss due to the use of carbon fiber for over 75% of its bodywork. What’s more, it’s been given an aerodynamic overhaul, with a single component comprising the hood, mudguards, and bumper, as well as a new rear fin and adjustable spoiler. The result is a car that’s 37% more efficient in the wind with 53% more downforce. In practice, this means that the STO will do 0-62mph in 3.0s and 0-124mph in 9.0s, with a top speed of 192mph. Available this spring from $327,838.
