Lamborghini Huracan STO in Malaysia – track-focused upgrades; 640 PS V10; from RM1.48 mil before taxes

Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur recently held a dynamic launch debut for the Huracan STO at the Sepang International Circuit, around 1.5 years after the road-homologated super sports car made its global debut.

Inspired by the racing heritage of Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s one-make race series involving the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo as well as the successful Huracan GT3 Evo (three-time 24 Hours of Daytona and two-time 12 Hours of Sebring winner), the Huracan STO is a track-focused version of the Huracan we’ve been familiar with since it was first introduced to the world in 2014.

Powering the Huracan STO is a 5.2 litre naturally-aspirated V10 that pushes out the same 640 PS (631 hp) at 8,000 rpm as the Huracan Evo, although peak torque is down by 35 Nm to settle at 565 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.

Like the Huracan Evo, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is paired with the engine, although it receives STO-specific tuning to deliver quicker and more responsive shifts. The all-wheel drive system is also absent here, making the STO purely rear-wheel drive.
