It might only be affordable to the sparkys that walk amongst us, but Lamborghini have officially unveiled the new Huracan STO and man does this thing look good and pack some power.
Inspired by the company’s Huracan Super Trofeo EVO racer, this version of the car is a street-legal version of the series and comes with an incredible combination of power, trimmings, performance and well…sex appeal.
Fitted with a 5.2-litre V10 engine, Lamborghini claim this is their fastest supercar yet. They say the STO can go from 0-62mph in a claimed time of 3 seconds flat, that can be attributed to the car’s new wheels being made from lightweight magnesium and 75% of the exterior panels being made of carbon fibre.
As reported by Auto Express, ‘styling revisions for the Huracan STO are extensive, stretching to a deeper front splitter, a reshaped rear diffuser, a manually adjustable rear spoiler and a new engine cover with a functional air scoop and a “shark-fin” stabilising vane’.
‘Lamborghini has also junked the standard car’s separate bonnet, bumper and front wings, replacing them with a single-piece clamshell, who’s styling emulates that of the Sesto Elemento.

‘The unit even has a vent above each wheel, which the brand says helps to expel hot air from the wheel arches and cool the brakes.’
‘Lamborghini has also widened the Huracan’s track, fitted stiffer suspension bushings, specific anti-roll bars and beefier Brembo brakes. The gearbox also has a quicker shift pattern and – like all of Lamborghini’s wildest projects – power is sent to the rear wheels only’.
So how much does this bad boy cost? Peanuts.
Okay not really.
£216,677 (excluding tax) is where you’ll have to start if you plan on pulling up on site in a supercar like this. Of course you are able to further customise your model which beefs that price up a fair bit.
It’s expected to be available and seen on the road in Spring 2021.
