    STO is going to be more fun vs F8. Although the Huracan styling is going on six years.. the new styling/aero/coloring option elements of the STO will make it feel like a "new " car. It is more of a geek car in terms of advanced technology, better MMI and superior sound track vs F8. At an estimated 1200-1400 copies worldwide, it will be relatively uncommon. As a track focused configuration, it serves the two purposes of being a looker and a track performer. It defines what 'sportscar" should have.( more discomfort, nimble handling, sacrificing brute speed for cornering efficiency and wild paint schemes and body parts(cofango. huge rear wing, flared fenders, NACA ducts etc. Its a "youthful "kind of car for me. But until I get mine hopefully July/August i wouldnt know for sure which one will have the most driving time.

    Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login Met with the dealer today to spec the STO. Exterior will be similar to the reveal without CF outside.

    For those that care, the contrast color is Arancio California; main color is Blu Laufey. The matte finish is not nearly as flimsy looking as on the F8 so I opted out of the CF for now.

    I did Alcantara and sport seats inside and dark chrome with blue belts and stitching.

    FWIW, there will be about 2500 cars built WW, with US about 50-60% of the market. The Asian market is particularly strong, so lots going to China and Japan.

    Here’s the car and the build, which I can still change. I opted out of the exterior stickers, I can add these later if need be.

    Hope to see it late this year or 1Q 2022.

    I went with AdP contrast because I wanted the brighter orange trim. I also added the Livery Package 3 which is the black bonnet, roof and rear hatch. I think it looks better on bright colors.

    And I deleted the stickers. Although I like the fact that it brings out the F8 front and rear fender details, they’re just too busy. As for the STO logo, Lamborghini should be paying me to advertise their rig, not vice-a-versa.
