Lamborghini reveals the Huracán Super Trofeo Omologata (STO)
The Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and GT3 EVO racecar inspired street car will be available Spring 2021.
Lamborghini has officially announced the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Omologata (STO). The STO is a street car, but draws heavy influence from both the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and the Huracán GT3 EVO.
The street weapon will come powered by a naturally aspirated V10 which puts out 640 horsepower (470 kW) and 565 Nm of torque all down to its rear-wheels. This will allow the STO to achieve 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124 mph)in 9.0 seconds and a top speed of 310 km/h (192 mph).
Aerodynamics is one of the main bits of performance trickled down from the racing programs. The STO features a cofango (the ‘cofango’ created by Lamborghini engineers combines the ‘cofano’ (hood) and ‘parafango’ (fender) including the front bumper, inspired by the Lamborghini Miura and more recent Sesto Elemento) with air ducts, front splitter and louvers, a rear fender with NACA air intake, a rear engine bonnet with air scoop, a shark fin, an adjustable rear wing, and brake cooling. This all improves overall airflow efficiency by 37% and 53% more downforce over the Huracán Performante.
Along with the aero, the STO is very light. It uses carbon fiber in more than 75% of its exterior panels, but thanks to Lamborghini's work with carbon fiber they were able to use 25% less carbon fiber material than previous vehicles while maintaining the same structural rigidity. Magnesium wheels round out the weight savings bringing the dry weight to 1,339 kg (2952 lbs).
One of the new features starting with the STO are the three new ANIMA driving modes - STO, Trofeo and Pioggia. Basically, STO is the default mode, Trofeo is a track mode, and Pioggia is a rain mode.
“The Huracán STO is the purest incarnation of Lamborghini Squadra Corse heritage, directly transferring technologies from the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and drawing on the Huracán GT3 EVO’s unique accomplishment of winning three consecutive times in the Daytona 24 hours,” says Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO, Stefano Domenicali. Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer added: “The Huracán STO delivers all the excitement of a beautifully balanced, lightweight and aerodynamically superior super sports car, mirroring the driving feeling and exhilaration of Super Trofeo, and perfectly set up for the world’s most demanding tracks but created for the road. The extensive technical solutions and intelligence gained from both our Super Trofeo and GT3 programs has been refined and embodied in the Huracán STO, allowing the pilot to experience the emotions of a racing driver, daily, in a road-legal Lamborghini super sports car able to take lap records.”
