Lamborghini Says Huracan STO Spyder Not Happening

Supercars / Comments

It totally makes sense why.

The Lamborghini Huracan STO is very different from the other Huracan variants. It's definitely not for all supercar buyers. Only track enthusiasts need to apply. Packed with technologies derived directly from the Super Trofeo race car, the STO, short for Super Trofeo Omologata, is seriously hardcore. And because of its race car roots, a roofless variant is not happening.

The Supercar Blog claims there will be no Spyder body style, though no specific source for the information is provided. Some Lamborghini fans may have been expecting the Spyder to arrive imminently, citing Huracan Performante Spyder as precedent. Everyone must accept the fact that some coupes simply aren't capable of going topless.

The STO is the perfect example. Some of its most distinctive features are that roof snorkel for engine cooling that's connected to the tall rear wing via the cool as hell shark fin. In general, roadsters/convertibles lose some structural rigidity and typically weigh more. Neither of those factors is acceptable for something like this Lambo.

The STO has a total of 630 track-tuned horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque coming from the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10. Zero to 62 mph happens in only 3 seconds flat while 0-124 requires just 9 seconds. Top speed is 193 mph. And yet this thing is 100 percent street legal.

There should be no concern whatsoever about coming to a stop in neck-snapping time thanks to the new Brembo carbon ceramic brakes. Coming to a complete standstill from 62 mph requires only 98 feet. Weight reduction was a priority for engineers, as was superb track performance just like the race car. Therefore, ripping out the all-wheel drive system for rear-wheel-drive only was the logical choice. The interior, not at all surprisingly, boasts bucket seats with racing harnesses.

At some point, we expect for Lamborghini to take a Huracan STO to the Nurburgring to attempt a little something called a record lap.
