Very doubtless known as Huracán STO, an acronym which stands for Tremendous Trofeo Omologato, the coupe will arrive as a street-legal supercar endowed with among the know-how developed for the Tremendous Trofeo Evo mannequin that races all over the world. Lamborghini’s preview picture highlights W-shaped LEDs built-in into the headlights, however the cowl that obscures the STO’s full design cannot conceal the large wing connected to the again finish. It additionally appears just like the hood receives a pair of deep air vents.
