Lamborghini is preparing the most powerful version of Huracan?March 5, 2020
Eyewitnesses noticed a rather unusual prototype of an Italian supercar, which had a giant wing and a large “scoop” on the roof for air intake into the cabin. It is possible that this is a racing version of the car, which will receive the Super Trofeo Omologato prefix.
Rumors about the Lamborghini Huracan STO appeared in June last year, when the foreign publication Automobile Magazine wrote about the possibility of a hardcore version of the supercar with the prefix Super Trofeo Omologato. It was reported that the new product should be presented in 2020. At that time, no details were announced about the car, but it seems that the team of engineers of the brand has started testing the new version of the supercar.
In the social network Instagram, two “spy” images were published, which capture an unusual prototype of the Lamborghini Huracan with a giant wing and a large bucket for air intake on the roof.
Exactly these exterior elements were the racing Huracan Super Trofeo (pictured below). It is also worth noting the large blinds on the rear window, which hides a powerful engine.
At the end of 2019, the leadership of the Italian brand gave the green light to create a more powerful Huracan STO. It should go on sale as a coupe of the 2021 model year, which means that we are likely to see its debut before the end of the current calendar year. In fact, this is the road version of the racing Huracan Super Trofeo. The rear-wheel drive STO is expected to receive a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated engine.
Lamborghini obviously aims to reduce about 150 kg of supercar weight, which would allow the Huracan STO to weigh a total of 1272 kg (in dry condition). According to rumors, the circulation of a more powerful version of the supercar will be limited to only 400 copies. No pricing data yet.
