The much awaited Middle Eastern debut of the Huracàn Super Trofeo Omologata (STO) by Lamborghini was hosted on 23th December, 2020 in Dubai. Although it was officially unveiled by the brand in November, it made its appearance for the first time in the Middle East. This news is brought to you by CarSwitch, an online car selling platform where you can also check used car prices in Dubai.
The showroom of the brand welcomed the regional premier of the supercar. This exclusive event was meaningful for the automotive enthusiasts in the Middle East. The Italian manufacturer is already recognized and celebrated for producing some of the best supercars and sports cars in the industry.
This blue thunder is a road-homologated sports car. It was inspired by the racing heritage of Huracàn GT3 EVO and Huracàn Super Trofeo EVO race series. The latter iconic Lamborghini supercar has won the races of 24 hours of Daytona thrice and 12 hours of Sebring twice. The latest creation by the Italian company is covered in detail in this article.
Engine and performance
The impressive supercar is fueled by a V10 naturally aspirated engine which pumps out 640 horsepower (470 kW) and 565 Nm at 6,500 rpm. It is a rear-wheel drive and it plows through 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3 seconds.
The exhilarating acceleration allows it to go from 0 to 200 km/h in only 9 seconds. The top speed recorded is 310 km/h which perfectly defines the passion and energy of a race car. Unsurprisingly, this brand new addition to the Lamborghini’s stable is anything but slow.
The road drive experience is made divine by the extensive usage of light raw materials, excellent aerodynamic details, superior braking system and flexible steering wheel. You can feel the emotion and fine delivery of the supercar on the road. It easily fits on the streets of Dubai and makes a striking experience.

Praise for the supercar
When the Lamborghini Huracàn STO was being unveiled, the Regional Head for the Middle East and Africa said:
“With a stunning new design and athletic powertrain, the Huracán STO is the result of the collaboration between Lamborghini’s R&D, Squadra Corse and Centro Stile departments, with every line and every feature aesthetically outstanding while optimised to ensure the best driving performance.
Its V10 naturally aspirated engine delivers all the emotion of a race car while providing a comfortable road experience for driver and passenger alike. I have every confidence that the Huracán STO will thrill and delight our customers here in the region.”
Both the body and chassis are made of carbon fiber and aluminum. This construction has made possible the dry weight of only 2,952 pounds. The vehicle is featured with the super computer based LDVI system which is also based in the Lamborghini Evo series. This system predicts the actions of the driver as guessed by the inputs. The telemetry readings also aid in this prediction which are changed every 20 milliseconds.
