Given how many of them ended up in our news feed, it may feel like the Lamborghini Huracan has been around for at least a couple of decades,. But the Italian company’s entry-level (as if there is anything basic about it) supercar will blow ten candles off its birthday cake this year.
That’s not the biggest news comprising the words Huracan and 2024, as Lamborghini will pull the plug on it in a few months. Naturally, deep-pocketed enthusiasts who have a soft spot for this wonderful machine might rush over to their local dealer looking to secure a build slot and buy their very own copy with a few personalization touches. But the truth is that the Sant’Agata Bolognese marque hasn’t been accepting orders for it since 2023.

All build slots have been reserved, regardless of whether we’re talking about the regular versions or the most versatile member of the family that adds the Sterrato suffix. This model is part of the swansong and features a custom suspension with a jacked-up design, some plastic cladding, additional lights, and exclusive wheels and tires, among others. Think of it as a great way to somewhat bridge the gap between the traditional Huracans and the ultra-popular Urus with its VW Touareg underpinnings.

As we already told you, there is no way to buy a brand-new Huracan straight from Lamborghini, no matter how much money you have in the bank. Unless perhaps you’re friends with a high-ranking exec and convince them to come up with a unique build that bears Ad Personam’s signature all over it. However, that’s a completely different story, and you don’t necessarily have to be on the brand’s VIP list to get a Huracan with only the delivery miles under its belt, as there is always the second-hand market for that.

If you know where to look, you can choose between different versions of the V10-powered machine. Hopefully, you’re more into the STO. But what exactly is a Lamborghini Huracan STO? That would be a track-ready variant that’s often referred to as a Super Trofeo racer for the road. It premiered over three years ago, boasting more advanced aero and weighing 95 pounds (43 kg) less than the Performance, which was already a lightweight contender. Oh, and due to the STO logos and the occasional factory decals of certain examples, you can easily tell it apart from other versions.

Any Lamborghini enthusiast (and not only) could tell you what lies under the hood. That would be a naturally aspirated V10, as all Huracans have had this recipe since 2014, continuing the tradition of its predecessor, the Gallardo. The 5.2-liter engine pumps out 631 horsepower (640 ps/471 kW) at 8,000 rpm and puts 417 pound-feet (565 Nm) of torque under the driver’s right foot.

The thrust goes to the rear wheels through a dual-clutch transmission with seven gears, so it doesn’t feature an all-wheel drive system. Thus, you will have to know your way around fast cars to put a leash on it and conquer the local racetrack. Lamborghini says it can accelerate to 62 and 124 mph (100-200 kph) in 3.0 and 9.0 seconds, respectively, tapping out at 193 miles per hour (310 kph).

A brand-new 2023 Lamborghini Huracan STO used to set its owners back at least $335,000. That was the asking price and didn’t include the dealer fees or any options, so you know this one isn’t going to be cheap, don’t you? As we already told you, it has only the delivery miles on the odometer. It is finished in Verde Citrea and Arancio Xanto, has a Nero and Arancio Dryope interior, and 20-inch forged alloys with a matte black look.

This supercar is available for worldwide shipping, and you can read more about it and see it in additional pictures on Hollmann International’s website here. But we still haven’t told you how much it will set you back for. You won’t need to take a seat for that, as the asking price is not exaggerated, or so we think anyway. Thus, without further ado, you are looking at €390,082, including tax, which comes out to $424,500 at the current exchange rates.

Sure, that’s some $90k over the original starting price, but it shouldn’t matter to anyone who has a sub-$500k budget for a new whip and wants a brand-new Lambo. And if you think it’s not justified, we will remind you that we found Dodge Challenger SRT Demons that were listed for a similar price. That may be a fast machine in a straight line, but it is still based on an old muscle car, one that recently left production for good, with its successor due at the end of the year.

So, if you were shopping for a Huracan, would this STO convince you to buy it?
