6. Suspension, Steering, And Tires

The visually noticeable aspect of the Huracan STO's suspension modification is that it rides on a wider track than the Huracan EVO. Underneath, Lamborghini has used stiffer suspension bushings, so the wheel camber isn't affected when the car is pushed hard in corners due to the increase in mechanical grip. The STO has tuned anti-roll bars to go with its 2.0 version of the MagneRide suspension system used. The changes are made to go with the increase in grip but keeping the Huracan STO comfortable enough to drive on the road, something we found it did surprisingly well for such an aggressive track car. The STO also features rear-wheel steering, which makes itself known particularly on turn-in to make a small car feel even more nimble.

All the aerodynamics and chassis work in the world are only as good as the tires making contact with the road. In this case, Lamborghini commissioned Bridgestone for a tailor-made version of its Potenza tires. The tires feature a new tread compound, an asymmetric tread design, and an internal crown structure that keeps pressure spread evenly across the tire to retain grip. A track-focused semi-slick, but still road legal, tire is also available.

OVERVIEW

A super-sports car created with a singular purpose, the Huracán STO delivers all the feel and technology of a genuine race car in a road-legal model. Lamborghini’s years-long motorsport know-how, intensified by a winning heritage, is concentrated in the new Huracán STO. Its extreme aerodynamics, track-honed handling dynamics, lightweight contents and the highest-performing V10 engine to date come together, ready to trigger all the emotions of the racetrack in your everyday life.

2. Downforce

You'll also notice air ducts in the hood, which, as well as improving engine cooling, also improves downforce. Also creating downforce from the front is the splitter, which directs air into the underbody designed specifically for the STO, and the diffuser. The cofango itself is designed to push air over the fenders and to the louvers, which helps maximize airflow from the wheel arches, reducing pressure and increasing downforce.

The most obvious downforce comes from the wing at the back. It's a single slotted wing with a double airfoil, and the front part of the wing can be adjusted into three positions. Working with the front splitter and underbody diffuser, Lamborghini claims it can create 925 pounds of downforce at 174 mph. Overall, Lamborghini tells us that the new body on the STO makes a 53 percent increase in downforce over the Huracan Performante.
