It's an absolutely epic-looking machine, and a true racecar for the road.
Lamborghini may be in a sort of limbo at the moment with plenty of speculation over whether Volkswagen will sell the brand on, but that hasn't stopped the purveyor of fine Italian exotics from releasing special editions and one-off models at all. The one that fans are most interested in, however, is the Lamborghini Huracan STO, a track-focused but road-legal machine that is based on the company's Huracan Super Trofeo EVO racer. After a slew of teasers, we're supposed to only see the motorsport-inspired special edition today at 10 AM EST, but thanks to a leak that comes from H.R. Owen Lamborghini in Britain via Lamborghini Unica, the brand's invite-only app for Lambo owners, we've caught some sneak previews.
The bodywork is wild, and the rumor is that the car underneath that outrageous metal won't exactly be tame either. Imagine a Lamborghini Huracan Evo with less weight and more grip, and that's what the STO will be. The active aerodynamics system (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) seen on the Huracan Performante seem to be carried over with enhancements, and if the stories are true, the STO will send all of its power to the rear wheels, making it a true driver's machine. The name, in case you're wondering, stands for Super Trofeo Omologata, another hint that the STO will truly be a racer for the road.
With less weight, better aerodynamics, and a truly extreme design, the only question that remains is how much power the STO will produce. A naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 will still be the power source, with a dual-clutch automatic transmission responsible for gear changes, but we're waiting for the reveal to confirm our suspicion that this will be even more powerful than any Huracan that has come before. As for pricing, you can bet your bottom dollar on the STO arriving with an MSRP higher than that of the Huracan EVO, likely somewhere around the $300,000 mark. If it turns out to be a limited edition, that price will surely be a pittance compared to what some collector will sell it on for a decade from now.
