NOVITEC Lamborghini Huracan STO (2022)
NOVITEC Lamborghini Huracan STO
Already in standard specification, the Lamborghini Huracán STO is the most radical and sportiest street-legal version of this model series ever. In order to make the “Super Trofeo Omologato,” which is what the acronym STO stands for, even more dynamic and thrilling, the world’s leading refinement specialist for super sports cars NOVITEC has developed tailor-made tuning components.
They include naked-carbon components and forged NOVITEC NL4 centerlock wheels developed in cooperation with Vossen, whose staggered combination of 20- and 21-inch rims on the front and rear axle adds further emphasis to the wedge shape of the two-seater.
The height-adjustable NOVITEC sport springs and the coilover suspension with adjustable ride height and damping are calibrated specifically to this tire/wheel combination.
The outstanding traits of the NOVITEC high-performance exhaust systems for the naturally aspirated V-10 engine are sound and performance optimization. Versions of the exhausts made from particularly lightweight INCONEL are also available.
Lightweight, yet high-strength carbon-fiber composite accounts for 75 percent of the bodywork of the Huracán STO, which underlines its extremely sporty focus. The NOVITEC designers developed matching, tailor-made naked-carbon elements that perfectly round off the racing looks.
The sides of the mid-engined sports car can be upgraded with the NOVITEC rocker panels. They give the lightweight-construction Huracán an even lower and sleeker stance, and thanks to the much larger than stock air intakes in front of the rear wheels also optimize cooling of the rear brakes. Also available are NOVITEC naked-carbon covers for the exterior mirrors, and enlarged air intakes for the rear side windows, which supply the engine with more air for combustion.
Of course, the spectacular NOVITEC looks for the STO also include hi-tech alloys. NOVITEC developed special NL4 centerlock wheels for the Lamborghini in cooperation with American manufacturer Vossen, which are produced using state-of-the-art forging technology.
The NOVITEC NL4 design fascinates with six delicate spokes that taper off towards the outer edge of the rim in the shape of a wide Y, making the wheels look extremely large. Customers can choose from 72 color variants, which optionally also come with a choice of brushed or polished finish.
The combination of rims with different diameters on the front and rear the wedge shape of the Italian sports car with rear-wheel drive even more to the fore. The front axle uses wheels of size 9Jx20 with high-performance tires of size 245/30 ZR 20. The rear axle runs on tires of size 325/25 ZR 21 mounted on 12.5Jx21 rims.
To give the car even more spectacular looks and provide vehicle owners with the possibility to tailor the suspension to their personal preferences, the NOVITEC engineers developed two different options. The coilover suspension developed together with KW is available for STO models equipped ex-factory with front lift system and MAGNETO shocks. It allows setting a custom ride height. What is more: There are 14 selectable settings each in the high-speed and low-speed range for compression and rebound of the four-way adjustable shock absorbers.
Height-adjustable NOVITEC sport springs are alternatively available for the MAGNETO stock suspension, which allow lowering the ride height of the STO by up to 30 millimeters.
The NOVITEC high-performance exhaust systems were developed to make the sound even more thrilling and further optimize the performance of the 5.2-liter ten-cylinder engine, which in standard specification produces an output of 470 kW / 640 hp. The exhaust system comes in different variants with and without actively controlled butterfly valves. The former make it possible to switch between a subtle and an extremely sporty exhaust note by radio remote.
All variants are available made from stainless steel or the even lighter material INCONEL, which is used in Formula 1 racing. All versions feature a coating of high-temperature thermal insulation. In addition, the NOVITEC exhaust systems are also available with 999 fine gold plating. The use of this precious and particularly thermally conductive metal further optimizes the thermal protection. The NOVITEC tailpipes with a diameter of 111 millimeters come with matt or glossy carbon embellishers and further upgrade the rear end of the Huracán STO. For an even more exclusive appearance, the tailpipes, which can also be combined with the production exhaust, can optionally be fitted with fine gold plating.
It goes without saying that NOVITEC also fulfills even the most custom requests in the cockpit. To this end, NOVITEC processes the finest leather and Alcantara in any desired color with consummate workmanship in every detail.
