    A lot of unticking. Not the most straightforward thing

    I believe that is correct, the Performante and STO being performance variants. My understanding is the EVO is a mid-cycle refresh for the Huracan, with one more coming in 2023 (don't hold me to this).

    I am 6'2" and fit decent/poor in the spyder. The coupe has MUCH more room so you will not have an issue.
    STO has different seats than the Perf, thank god. Hopefully better comfort.

    I have long legs, so I have to crank the seat all the way back which causes an upright driver's position. Maybe I'm spoiled because of the 458.

    Sorry I mislead - I'm looking at a Spyder (coupe fits fine but would be illegal here in FL). Dealer in Charlotte will be getting some in with the sport seats - that's my best chance. I should know when I'm back up there in mid-December......

    same here. I already gave up on lambo for my body build. 458 SA and 812 GTS is what I want and can sit well.

    It seems Lambo took a page from Ferrari’s playbook with promo images and a configurator that uses renderings having a much lower ride height and larger wheels than reality. If only the actual car had that stance.... my deposit would be in. As it stands, I’m still struggling with some of the proportions at the rear. I need to digest the styling a little while longer.

    Anyone make a good looking gulf-livery style (that’s better than the announce car image?)

    Lots of cool/interesting renders being posted from outlandish to stealth. I can dig the Blu Sideris/Nethuns, Viola Parsifae even the Grigio Lynx/Titans

    Add yellow accents like Sam suggested. Are you going carbon fiber for the Cofango trim, rear diffuser, snorkel, wing, shark fin?

    Maro Engel, the AMG GT3 factory driver, laid down a masterclass drive in the Black Series. There were some hair-raising moments when he went over the wet spots on the track.

    The EVO sports seats apparently provide an extra 2" and drivers over 6 foot are fitting in fine. Assume the STO seats will be the same height or even lower. Ultimately it depends on your body habitus.

    Huracan ---> Perf

    Huracan Super Trofeo Evo ---> STO

    I’m still tempted to do something like this. Nero Pulso exterior. Rosso Alala interior.

    Had time to go through the order guide. Some highlights:

    -There's a package for painted logo/stickers for $44k, yikes.
    -Standard seats are the old SV/Perf buckets, new sport seat is a $8k option. I was told there was only one seat option.
    -Rear spoiler does not come in carbon, you have to option it. This one is bizarre.
    -Lift is an option, this should be standard.
    -No option for black roof/engine cover. Probably have to go through AdP.
    -Only Gold wheels are magnesium and cost $18k, very misleading because Lamborghini made it sound like both wheel option were magnesium.
    -No premium audio.

    The Performante was a bargain compared to this car. I think at this point it's a cash grab, the order guide is loaded up with expensive options and packages. The question is what are the "must have" options because you can easily spend close to $100k just on options. Unforuntley there's going to be owners out there that will tick every option and they'll be holding the bag once prices start dipping. I have until Saturday to finalize my spec, a lot to consider.

    Dealer sent me the price guide. I was going to get my dealers market intro car but I want to spec my own car so technically I'm getting the first customer car so I need to lock in my spec.

    Lol, I have but Lambo was generous with standard options in the past. My SV and Perf didn't have a huge list of cost options.

    Everyone else charges for a lift. Why do people keep saying lift should be no cost option ??

    Especially since the STO is a track purpose car. Some would not want the weight penalty of a lift.

    The order guide released to dealers last month had the lift as standard.

    Batmobile spec :eek:

    Two words: NA V10

    Race credentials, RWD, exhaust note, capable, the STO is the fizz that's been missing from the continuously refined vehicles with GPF's, hybrid systems and turbos. With gas powered cars getting banned in 10-20 years and a long laundry list of more emissions restrictions, cars like this will simply not exist anymore. They will become heavier, quieter and less engaging until we are in an souless all-electric dystopia.

    I ordered an EVO RWD Spyder this year because I already have two coupe's (and want one more) but wanted an open top option in the stable so there isn't too much overlap. But if I didn't have or want the Spyder the STO would be my other option. Same engine and exhaust and don't track my cars, so EVO RWD probably better fit for me anyways

    Same HP as the Super Trofeo. GT3 cars don't have crazy horsepower, it's about aero, grip, etc.

    0-62 in 3 seconds being RWD & NA is commendable imo

    Exactly - hence why we need to buy everything we can afford until it ends. Pity the children going forward - dreaming of an "app on wheels" - what a Big Brother future :( :(

    Wow! Where did you get those pictures? They are not from the online configurator right?
