Lamborghini Huracan STO to be launched in India on July 15

The Huracan STO is essentially a Super Trofeo race car for the road.

Lamborghini is set to launch the most track-focused version of the Huracan, the Huracan STO, in India on July 15, 2021.

The Huracan STO (Super Trofeo Omologata) was developed by the Squadra Corse racing division. It is essentially a Super Trofeo race car for the road.

As you would expect, it gets a lot of upgrades over the standard Huracan. The STO has a one-piece front clamshell with louvres on the front fenders. It gets a large front splitter and a massive adjustable rear spoiler, among other aerodynamic upgrades.

The interior looks like that of the regular Huracan except with lots of Alcantara that adds a sporty feel. It also gets carbon-backed sports seats, carbon door panels with lightweight door pulls and carbon-weaved floor mats. Due to the use of carbon fibre and other weight-saving measures, the Huracan STO weighs 43 kg less than the Huracan Performante.

This supercar is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine that develops 631 BHP and 565 Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Lamborghini claims that the STO can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds.

The Huracan STO also gets a host of upgrades to the running gear such as stiffer springs and anti-roll bars, wider track, rear-wheel steering and ceramic brakes.
