Recently, we got our first look at the Lamborghini Huracan STO in Delhi. Here are some exclusive photos of the interior and exterior of the Lamborghini Huracan STO for you folks. We’ve some portrait shots which will look dope once you’ll apply them as your home screen wallpaper.
The new Huracan STO is a road-legal version of the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo AND Huracan GT3 Evo race cars which is not a straight descendent to the Huracan Performante. Well, it lies on the top of the huracan series which is priced in India at Rs.4.99 crores (ex-showroom). This new Super Trofeo Omologato has a sportier and scaled-up approach to the regular Huracan with improved aerodynamics, reduced weight, an overhaul suspension, and enhanced heat management.
Lamborghini Huracan STO- Exterior & Interiors
The Huracan STO brings off the race-car look where the front bumper, bonnet, and fenders are made up of a single component called ‘Cofango’ which is implemented to reduce its weight. There are massive air ducts in the bonnet for more refined cooling and a front splitter that helps the airflow to be directed to the rear diffuser. The shark fin on the rear engine cover improves the airflow to keep it straighten and cornering radius. 75% of the body panel is made up of carbon fibre which plays an important aspect in lowering down the weight of the STO. Due to this, Huracan STO airflow increases by 37% and with downforce of 53% while comparing it with the Performante. This clearly states that Huracan STO has the best aero-balance and highest level of downforce in its category being an RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) car.
The use of carbon fibre is very evident on the interior cabin, door panels, cloth door handles, floor mats, and sports seats. It has 20-Inch Magnesium wheels that are wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza tires. Now, it has more improved HMI graphics letting the driver monitor break temperature and tire pressure. The telemetry system is fully connected and the data can be accessed to a developed app through which drivers can be able to monitor and record their track performance.
The STO holds the natural aspirated 5.2-liter V10 as other Huracans. It delivers 565nm of torque and the power of 640hp whereas the torque is slightly underpowered when compared to the 600nm of torque on the Huracan Performante. While the STO is a Rear-Wheel Drive similar to a race car, the Performante is an All-Wheel Drive (AWD). It’s claimed to go up to 0-100kph in straight 3 seconds which is 0.3 seconds faster than the RWD Evo but 0.1 sec slower than the AWD Evo whereas the top speed has been reduced to ‘just’ 310kph. The Lamborghini Huracan STO is not about top speeds and acceleration, it’s all about delivering the best performance through hard corners on a racecourse track. There’s also a new STO-based driving mode which consists of three modes:- ‘STO’ for Street drive, ‘Trofeo’ for better gripping and faster laps and ‘Pioggia’ for laps on the wet roads.
