Meet the most track-focused Lamborghini Huracan yet.
The 2021 Huracan STO has leaked hours ahead of its planned debut, revealing the rear-wheel drive supercar’s more aggressive look and wild aerodynamics package inspired by the Huracan Super Trofeo race car.
That’s right, rear-wheel drive. CarExpert understands the Huracan STO will share its naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine with the previous Huracan Performante, but send all 471kW and 600Nm to the back wheels. Time to pop a brave pill, then.
With no front differential or driveshaft, the STO should be lighter than the Performante or Huracan Evo on which it’s based.
And with a more aggressive front splitter, a rear wing inspired by the Aventador SVJ, and a massive rear diffuser, it should create more downforce than its already-sticky predecessor.
Debuted on the Huracan Performante, it’s also likely a further development of the ‘Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva’ aerodynamics system will feature on the Huracan STO.
Given the Huracan Performante was briefly the fastest production car around the Nürburgring Nordschleife with a 6:52.01 lap, there’s a good chance Lamborghini will attempt to beat the 6:43.61 record set by the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series when the STO launches.
Pricing hasn’t been confirmed, but a sticker north of $600,000 before on-road costs is likely in Australia. It’s not clear if numbers will be capped, but CarExpert understands the Huracan STO will be a full production model.
The official Huracan STO reveal will be streamed in the early hours of November 19, Australian time.
