Rumoured RWD Huracan ‘STO’ leaked

Spy shots of a possible upcoming Lamborghini model have been doing the rounds. We’re told it’ll be extrememly light, and may even be rear wheel drive.

First we had the Huracan, a fire-breathing 5.2L V10 powered supercar. The Performante was released a few years later and before people had a chance to say “nothing can top that”, the EVO was released.

Posted to Instagram by car collector @allanlambo, we have spy photos of a new Huracan, and it’s meant to be better than the EVO. It seems that Lamborghini have been picking up the pace, fast.

Lamborghini Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo. Looks similar huh.

So what’s rumoured?

First up, the name. Super Trofeo Omologlato (STO). Super Trofeo being a Lamborghini-based motor racing event, and omologlato meaning… homologated. Upon comparing the spy photo to a Super Trofeo race car, it’s quite clear that they share a very similar top mounted air duct and a large spoiler, but judging by the front and rear ends – it seems to be based off the road-going Huracan EVO.

Maybe it’ll carry the best of both worlds?

Lamborghini Huracan EVO

Specifications are rumoured to be similar to the current EVO – a 477kW (640hp) 5.2L V10 matched to a Super Trofeo’s RWD system, and weight is expected to sit under 1,300kg which if true, will make it 150kg lighter than the EVO.

We expect it will take a lot of technology from both the road-legal EVO and the Super Trofeo race car – from brakes to aerodynamics, but it’s too early to say at this point.

If these rumours add up, we could be seeing a successor to the Sesto Elemento. A road legal one at that.
