    The F8 really has no sound. The 488 GTB or the Pista is considerably better. However you have had a Pista and actually was very beautiful.

    I believe everyone has different views and don't track their cars hence why i would prefer the F8 as in shape / execution

    The lambo will most likely have a better sound but IMO just looks like its been pimped up..

    Lamborghini have injected steroids to produce the STO.

    Looks to have a wing set to rival the AMG GT BS.

    I will admire its somewhat gaudy looks from afar o_O

    I'm getting both, the STO arrives next March and F8 in June. I don't think you can compare the two, STO is a raw RWD track monster whereas the F8 can be used a DD.

    Yes, the first question is can I fit?

    No regrets, but I own an 812 because I couldn't fit in the Aventador.

    Looks like they gave it lipstick. Hideous.

    I wonder if the cabin offers the same poor space and ergonomics. For me a car can never be good if the seating position is uncomfortable. A car has to fit properly to be driven properly.

    If you found the Pista lacking in sound, you certainly won’t like the F8. But if course, you already know that....

    STO is certainly a good way to go. If you can fit comfortably in one that is. If not the F8 would be my second choice of the two options.

    This should be compared to a 765lt not a F8. Two totally different cars. STO super track focused and disappointing they didn't give it more hp and the F8 super usable daily driver.

    Personally I would get the 765lt if you want something like this, it is going to be way faster.

    Agree....but had to put a ferrari in the header or risk mods moving thread.
    I have 765lt incoming but will get an STO. I miss my Performante that much, it was so brilliant. STO going to have to really mute the spec or it’s a clown car like the SVJ63.

    Not fair. The STO has 'only' 630 hp. Compare to 620R maybe?

    630 hp just doesn't qualify for 'monster' status in 2021. Crazy, but true. :( :D

    It is clear that the limits of the V-10 NA has been reached. RWD Huracans purposely have less power than the AWD due to traction considerations. The STO 631 HP is the highest of any RWD Lamborghini. The aesthetics of the STO appear forced. There is a lack of continuity and coherency in the design. The Performante is more fluid while hardly conventional, yet it looks purposeful. The STO has exaggerated add ons that seem as an afterthought and an unnatural effort to differentiate it from the Performante. That spoiler may be functional but personally I find it, as well as those on the Porsche GT cars, pretty darn close to hideous. The overall aesthetic would be greatly improved by having all the colored pieces done in CF black. My decision to purchase the 765LT has been reinforced.

    You can spec the car to your preferences. The colored accents can be changed to high gloss black or carbon fiber or body color. That would go a long way towards toning it down.
