In pictures: Lamborghini’s latest production car
With more than 75% of its exterior panels made from carbon fibre, this is a production car that makes the track its home.
The new Lamborghini Huracan STO is built for one thing: speed.
The latest in Lamborghini’s racing bloodline, it tops out at a maximum speed of 310 kilometres per hour.
The acceleration? Just a casual 0-200 kilometres an hour in nine seconds.
The Lamborghini Huracan STO: built for speed
“The Huracán STO is the purest incarnation of Lamborghini Squadra Corse heritage, directly transferring technologies from the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and drawing on the Huracán GT3 EVO’s unique accomplishment of winning three consecutive times in the Daytona 24 hours,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Lamborghini.
That rich racing heritage emerges in the engine. A V10 naturally aspirated 640-horsepower power plant delivers 565 Nm of torque to the rear wheels at 6,500 rpm.
Even the classic Lamborghini exterior plays second fiddle to pure performance on this car. The front bonnet, fenders and front bumper are all one piece to save weight.
That Lamborghini front profile that we’ve all come to know and love has been broken up by new air ducts on the bonnet and louvres on the fenders to improve cooling and increase downforce. That’s improved the airflow efficiency by 37%, and downforce by 53%, over Lamborghini’s previous track-oriented production car, the Huracan Performante.
Lamborghini will begin shipping the Huracan STO in spring next year, with a retail price of US$327,838 (AU$448,234 at current exchange rates).
