The light and lightning-quick Lamborghini Huracán STO

The Huracán STO, a road-legal super sports car developed with the know-how of Lamborghini’s Motorsport team Squadra Corse, was put through its paces both on and around the Circuit in Vallelunga, near Rome, Italy. 

"The feedback on the Huracán STO was positive all-around," Lamborghini said. The naturally aspirated V10 of the Super Trofeo Omologato, and sports car's the overall setup and custom-made Bridgestone Potenza race tires, "have a clear focus: absolute performance and emotions for the driver."

And so Lamborghini boasted that that one year of production for the Huracán STO has already been sold out—before customers had the chance to test-drive it.

The Huracán STO's "absolute performance" comes from a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10, which generates 631hp at 8,000rpm and 565Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. It tops the speedo at 310kph, and does the nil-to-century dash in three seconds flat. 

Power is sent, via a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, to the rear wheels only, since the standard Huracán's four-wheel drive system has been removed to save weight. 

Other weight-saving tricks Squadra Corse has done to the Huracán STO include the fitment of thinner glass and optional magnesium wheels, and the installation of carbon fiber panels. Lamborghini has even fashioned a single piece for the car's hood, front bumper, and wings.

Those measures translates to a dry weight of 1,339 kilograms. 

Speaking of kilograms, the STO’s rear wing can be manually adjusted to bring three downforce settings: low at 324kg, mid at 363kg, and high at 420kg.

Meawhile, cofango, a set of louvres to allow hot air to escape from the wheel wells and the radiators, follows the total aerodynamic goal for the Huracán STO. The shark fin on the rear deck is claimed to enhance yaw stability.

For braking and cornering abilities, CCM-R brakes from Brembo and  Bridgestone tires have been fitted.

The Anima system features three driving modes: STO for road driving, Trofeo for the racetrack, and Pioggia for wet roads. These modes tweak the dampers, traction control and ABS settings, exhaust sound, torque-vectoring, and the rear-wheel steering system.
