The Huracan Could Be The Most Emotional Lamborghini Ever Built

Lamborghini Huracan STO has finally been taken on the racetrack for testing

LISTEN 01:24

The Lamborghini Huracan STO never got the reveal it deserved thanks to the COVID pandemic. It’s been nearly a year, and the STO has finally made its way to its natural habitat – the race track. The days of delayed test drives are over, and – according to Lamborghini – the feedback was “positive all-around” thanks to the STO’s delivery of absolute performance and the way it evokes emotion.

This isn’t really surprising, though, as the STO is, arguably, the best Huracan ever built. Lamborghini’s tried and true 5.2-liter V-10 pumps out 631 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. With that kind of power, you’ll get to 62 mph (100 km/h) in three-seconds flat when you put the hammer down. If you keep going, it takes just nine seconds for the sprint from 0 to 124 mph! That said, the STO is a bit slower than the Performante, with a top speed of 190 mph vs. 202 mph, but the STO is designed to rip corners apart with a vengeance anyway. The first year of STO production is already sold out, but you can still pay up $327,838 to get in on the next production year.

The Huracán STO, a road-legal super sports car developed with the know-how of Lamborghini’s Motorsport team Squadra Corse, could finally be presented where it feels home: on the racetrack.

After its digital premiere in November last year, also the test drives had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Now it was time to finally put its qualities to the test both on and around the Circuit in Vallelunga, near Rome.

The feedback on the Huracán STO was positive all-around. The naturally aspirated V10, the overall setup of the super sports car and the Bridgestone Potenza Race specifically developed for this car have a clear focus: absolute performance and emotions for the driver.

It comes as no surprise that one year of production for the Huracán STO has already been sold out - before the opportunity to test-drive it.
