Lamborghini Huracán STO Spider dreams of us an open top track day

You’re a fan of Lamborghini’s new hardcore Huracan STO, wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have a roof? Well, at the moment, the Furacan STO is the only coupe, but perhaps this rendering by Actionnov Nikita is enough to satisfy you. In true Lamborghini fashion, where model segmentation is everything, we expect the roofless Huracan STO to hit the dealer lot someday.

The Lamborghini Huracán STO was built using the knowledge gained from the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Spec Racing Program. This racing series is a spec class promoted by Lamborghini, where professional teams and private racers collide on circuits around the world in the Furacan Super Trofeo Evo Race Car.

To celebrate the success of the Super Trofeo program and to share the knowledge gained on track with our customers, the Furacan STO was born. STO stands for Lamborghini’s code Super Trofeo Omologata, which is a road race car with a lot of aero.

The Huracan STO races with adjustable carbon fiber rear wings, shark fins for high speed stability, a rear hood scoop, an improved front end for improved cooling and downforce, and many weight reduction measures. It has many aero improvements from the car. Most of the Furacan STO body panels are made of carbon fiber for weight reduction. Combined with a thinner windshield and magnesium wheels, this makes the car 95 pounds lighter than the standard Huracan Performante.

Powered by the same V10 engine found in the Huracan Performante Evo race car, it produces 640 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque. This sensational V10 is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that powers the rear wheels mounted on tires specially designed for STO by Bridgestone.

With all this focus on performance, Lamborghini may be worried about cutting off the roof of their most hardcore Furacan. But Lamborghini understands that not only impressive numbers, but sometimes fun is worth the sacrifice.
