This one is a bit less dramatic than the blue/orange launch livery.
The Lamborghini Huracan was initially considered a tamer, less extreme supercar than we're used to seeing from the Italian marque when it was first launched. Well, at least as tame as is possible in a V10-engined exotic. Through the years, though, Lamborghini has steadily increased the steroid dosage. It evolved into the Huracan Evo, but not before the track-oriented Performante came along.
This month, we greeted the even more extreme Huracan Super Trofeo Omologata (STO), a replacement for the Performante. The STO is by far the most outrageous looking Huracan yet with a multitude of aerodynamic tweaks characterizing its appearance. A spy photographer named Walter Vayr - who goes by Gabetz Spy Unit - has managed to capture the new Lambo in the wild in an arresting livery.
The pictures were taken near Modena in Italy and show off the Huracan STO in a dark grey finish with bright green livery adorning the fenders, rear wing, side sills, and other sections of the body. Looking more closely, there are numerous exposed carbon fiber elements such as on the hood. It was parked alongside what appears to be a Huracan Evo, with the latter suddenly looking quite ordinary by comparison.
Although there are no clear shots of the cabin, the seats also receive contrast piping and stitching in the same green hue. It's not the wildest livery we've seen the STO in yet, but then again, this car could be finished in plain white and it'll still turn more heads than pretty much anything else on the road.
Details like the shark fin, an adjustable rear wing, and the snorkel that takes in air to enhance engine cooling combine to make for one properly aggressive machine. Compared with the Performante, downforce has been increased by 53 percent.
The green/grey combo here gives the STO a totally different personality to the Blu Laufey and Arancio California launch livery. Customers who don't fancy either of these choices need not worry as Lamborghini's Ad Personam personalization program offers "limitless" choices of trim and paint styles.
Everyone should be pretty happy with what lies under the skin, though. The STO's 5.2-liter V10 engine produces 640 horsepower and will help the Lamborghini hit 62 mph in just three seconds. More rigid suspension bushing, a widened wheel track, and three new Anima driving modes mean that it's as quick through the curves as it is in a straight line.
Deliveries of the new Lamborghini Huracan STO will begin in the spring of 2021 at a price in the US of $327,838 before taxes, GST, and options - including virtually any exterior livery the customer can think of.
