Lamborghini Huracán STO express test: Ultimate object of passion

Three letters for « Super Trofeo Omologata », the championship organized by Lamborghini on the circuit. What sets its body apart are its aerodynamic appendages. Like the Miura of the 60s, the STO adopts a front assembly consisting of the hood, fenders and bumper, all in one element. And if it saves time for technical interventions in the race, it also and above all serves to channel the air towards the flat bottom and the diffuser.

At the rear, in addition to the central air intake intended to cool the V10, it is the imposing spoiler that catches the eye. Made up of two parts, one fixed, the other movable and adjustable in three positions, it literally presses the car to the ground at high speed. Did you have the visual punch? Wait for startup. You will not believe your ears ! The naturally aspirated 640 horsepower V10 already screams at idle. So imagine it expressing itself near the red zone, at 8,500 rpm… Diabolical.

From one bend to another

Inside, there is no storage space, your feet rest directly on the shell, the doors are opened via a fabric strap, the bucket seats are as perfect in terms of minimalism as they are in support and ergonomics. But the Huracan STO does not forget that it can also go around town and therefore offers complete multimedia, air conditioning and some comfort elements that contrast with the rest, dedicated to the pleasures of speed.

On the road as on the track, this STO impresses with its acceleration capabilities. Even more impressive are his road skills. Because, with its featherweight (for such a machine), its widened tracks, its stiffened suspensions and its ultra direct steering, it leaps from one bend to another with incredible ease. Beware all the same of overconfidence, the STO sends all the cavalry to the rear wheels alone. And to stem the storm? Use Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, straight from F1!

Of course, all this has a price, more than €300,000 for our test copy and consumption to cause unease among IPCC members… But don’t panic, all the copies are already sold. The ransom of glory.
