Are you a fan of Lamborghini’s new hardcore Huracan STO, but wish it had no roof? Well, at the moment the Huracan STO is cut only, but maybe this rendering by Aksyonov Nikita is enough to satisfy you. Much like Lamborghini, where model segmentation is everything, we expect a Huracan STO without a roof to reach dealer lots someday.
The Lamborghini Huracan STO was built using the knowledge gained from the Lamborghini Super Trofeo racing program. This racing series is a spec class promoted by Lamborghini where professional teams and private racers compete on circuits around the world in Huracan Super Trofeo Evo race cars.
To celebrate the success of the Super Trofeo program and share the knowledge acquired on the track with customers, the Huracan STO was born. The STO stands for Super Trofeo Omologata, which is Lamborghini’s code for, it’s a race car for the road with a ton of aero.
The Huracan STO features a host of aerodynamic enhancements straight from the race car which includes an adjustable carbon fiber rear spoiler, shark fin for high speed stability, a rear hood scoop, revised front end for a better cooling and better support, and a host of weight saving measures. Most of the Huracan STO body panels are made of carbon fiber to save weight. Add to that a thinner windshield and magnesium wheels, and you’ve got a car that now weighs 95 lbs. Lighter than a standard Huracan Performante.
Power comes from the same V10 engine found in the Huracan Performante Evo race car and produces 640 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque. This sensational V10 is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which delivers power to the rear wheels shod with a tire specially designed for the STO by Bridgestone.
With all this emphasis on performance, Lamborghini can be afraid to cut the roof off their most hardcore Huracan. But Lamborghini isn’t just about impressive numbers and understands that sometimes the pleasure is worth the sacrifice.
