Meet the Most Hardcore Lamborghini Huracán Yet: the 2021 Super Trofeo Omologata


Lamborghini has just unveiled the most hardcore version of its V10-powered supercar yet: the Huracán Super Trofeo Omologata or STO—a road-homologated supercar inspired by its one-make race series Super Trofeo EVO and Huracán GT3 EVO.

The Huracán STO produces 640 horsepower and 565 Nm of torque from its normally-aspirated V10 engine. The rear-wheel drive supercar does the 100 km/h mark in 3 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 9 seconds, and runs to a top speed of 310 km/h.



More than just raw power, the Huracán STO comes with a comprehensive aero kit that all work together including new air ducts, front splitter, rear diffuser, and adjustable rear wing. All in all, Lamborghini says airflow efficiency is improved by 37 percent and downforce increased by 53 percent over the Huracán Performante.

The Huracán STO also comes with race-inspired features. Chief among them is the “cofango,” which means the front hood, fenders, and bumpers are all done in one piece making it ultra-lightweight. Other weight saving features include the use of carbon fiber on 75 percent of its exterior panels, a lighter windshield, and magnesium alloy wheels. In fact, it weighs 43 kilograms less than the Huracán Performante at 1,339 kilograms.

With an increased wheel track, stiffer suspension bushing, specific anti-roll bars and Lamborghini’s MagneRide 2.0, the STO delivers a racecar-like feel. It also has a fixed steering ratio and rear-wheel steering for a more intimate relationship between car and driver.



The Huracán STO also debuts two new driving modes on its ANIMA selector: Trofeo and Pioggia. In Trofeo mode, all systems are optimized for dry asphalt and the fastest lap times on track. Meanwhile, in Pioggia (rain) it optimizes traction control, torque vectoring, rear-wheel steering, and the ABS on wet asphalt.

The interior of the Huracán STO also reflects the lightweight persona of the exterior with the extensive use of carbon fiber features throughout the cockpit, including sport seats in full carbon fiber; an Alcantara interior with Lamborghini’s Carbonskin; carpets removed and replaced by floor mats in carbon fiber; and the fully carbon fiber lightweight door panels with a door latch as opener. A rear arch with four-point seatbelts and a newly designed front trunk for helmet storage, underline the Huracán STO’s racing DNA. The rear arch is made from high-grade titanium alloys. It’s 40 percent lighter than conventional stainless-steel rear arches.

Deliveries of the Lamborghini Huracán STO starts in March of 2021. In Europe, it comes with a suggested retail price of 249,412 Euros or about 14.25 million pesos. PGA Cars, Inc., the official distributor of Lamborghini in the Philippines is now taking orders. Price is “upon application.”
