Lamborghini Huracan STO is Road-Legal
Lamborghini launch the new Huracan Supercar today – the Huracan STO (Super Trofeo Omologato) a road going version of the Huracan Super Trofeo race car.
Judging by the image, this has increased aero across the whole car and promises to cause a real stir in Lamborghini dealerships around the UK.
Within the front bonnet is an additional pair of air ducts to increase airflow through the centrally-mounted radiator, improving cooling and generating more downforce. The ‘confango’ also incorporates the front splitter that channels air under the car and along its flat floor and out via a new and more aggressive rear diffuser. The side profile has also been redesigned to improve air flow around the front wheel to reduce drag.
At the rear there is a Super Trofeo rear bumper that has been further modified to improve the aero efficiency, while a NACA duct incorporated into the STO’s rear haunch acts as an engine air intake, reducing static pressure losses by 30 percent. There is also an integrated air scoop fitted to the top of the new engine cover to improve cooling at the rear of the engine bay. Dedicated air deflectors have also been integrated into the rear bonnet’s frame to manage incoming airflow from the snorkel depending on the temperature requirement of the engine and exhaust.
A car that Lamborghini claims was always on the plan to produce when the Super Trofeo series was launched in 2009, it might have taken over a decade to arrive, but the STO looks set to thrill like no other Huracán in the past. It’s also a nice welcome back present for the returning Stephan Winkelmann, who has returned as President of Lamborghini a position he will also hold at Bugatti.
Deliveries of the STO starts next year and will run until the end of the 2022, with production numbers dictated by factory capacity. Prices start from £216,677 (ex local taxes).
Reep are certainly looking forward to seeing these in our studios across the UK as we look to protect them with PPF ready to take on track days up and down the country.
We already have a number of clients clambering for their wallets to get hold of what promises to be something a little bit special!
