2021 CarBuzz Awards Finalists: Track Weapon

The Huracan STO isn’t just some ordinary Huracan, which, if we’re honest can be pretty boring. No, the STO is what the Huracan Performante would be on performance-enhancing drugs. When we called it a roadgoing race car, we really meant it – it was developed using all Lamborghini’s know-how from its Super Trofeo one-make race series. Like the other finalists in this category, this car sends its power to the rear wheels only, but unlike them, there’s no forced induction.

A 5.2-liter V10 engine produces the same 630 hp as in the Performante, but here, the car weighs under 3,000 pounds and can hit 60 mph in three seconds dead. On a track, its adjustable wing, ultra-thin windscreen, carbon body panels, roof-mounted air scoop, and rear-axle steering all combine with the rest of the car to create a road-holding experience second to none.

If we could distill our experience with it into one sentence, it’s probably gonna read something like this: The Huracan STO makes driver engagement and better lap times its chief concern better than anything else that Ferrari or any other established exotic outfit dares.
