Lamborghini Huracán STO: Five facts you did not know

The latest model from the Italian house is inspired by the brand's race cars such as the Huracán EVO Super Trofeo and the Huracán EVO GT3


The latest super sports car presented by Lamborghini is Hurricane STO, a road-approved model inspired by the Italian brand's race cars such as the Hurricane EVO Super Trophy and Hurricane EVO GT3.

Lamborghini Huracán STOWith its naturally aspirated V10 engine 640 CV (470 kW) generating 565 Nm at 6.500 rpm, the rear-wheel drive Huracán STO offers impressive acceleration 0-100 km / h in 3,0 seconds, 0-200 km / h in 9,0 seconds and a maximum speed 310 km / h.

Superior aerodynamic efficiency, extensive use of lightweight materials, feel-free steering and first-class stopping power enable the Huracán STO to bring the thrill of a track experience to every road trip.

Behind the innovative technical solutions that make this extraordinary performance possible are little-known facts:

1) COFANGO, A DESIGN SOLUTION MADE IN LAMBORGHINI

Lamborghini Huracán STOThe term Cofango derives from the fusion of two Italian words: hood (hood) and fender (fender), coined by Automobili Lamborghini to describe the design solution in which the hood, the fenders and the front bumper form a single component. This innovative system created by Lamborghini engineers is inspired by the Lamborghini Miura and in the most recent sixth element, although in the STO it is made entirely of very light carbon fiber. The key to open the closures of the Cofango of the STO is unique: it has been developed internally by the R&D team and produced using an innovative 3D printing technique.

2) DYNAMIC STOP IN BOXES IN JUST THREE SECONDS

Lamborghini Huracán STOYou can't do too much in three seconds, but the Hurricane STO set-up is one of them. The three new driving modes,  STO (normal), Trofeo (career mode) and Rain (rain or wet), adapt the car's set-up to high-performance driving environments. The Huracán STO allows the driver to experience a dynamic pit stop, as if a team of mechanics were right there!

3) THREE LAPS TO THE WORLD OF TEST IN THE SIMULATOR

Lamborghini Huracán STOThe Lamborghini R&D team traveled a distance equivalent to circling the world three times in the tests performed in the simulator before starting the Hurricane STO road tests. State-of-the-art simulator technology enabled Lamborghini engineers to save time on quality checks, lead times and emissions by verifying that each part of the car fully met expectations during the various stages of development, certification and testing. of the STO.

4) 2.750 COMPONENTS TO MAKE A STO

Lamborghini Huracán STODo you want to build a Hurricane STO in 1: 1 scale? You will have to be very patient, because more than 2.750 components are needed to build the latest Sant'Agata model.

5) TELEMETRY CONNECTED THANKS TO 25.000 LINES OF CODE

Lamborghini Huracán STOHurricane STO introduces an advanced connected telemetry system in which the connection between the Lamborghini Connected Cloud on-board cameras and the Lamborghini UNICA app allows - thanks to an intuitive data analysis system and optimized videos with specialized widgets - to transform the exclusive Lamborghini application into a true track engineer. The development of the technology used in the Lamborghini UNICA application has required more than 25.000 lines of code.
