Lamborghini Huracán STO review

Published: 06 Aug 2021


What is it like on the inside?

Conventional opening doors, but mind the uncarpeted carbon floor as you get in – very slippery. No fundamental changes in here, still a 12.3-inch dash screen and an 8.4-incher on the centre console. More functionality contained within it if you choose: there’s the option of full on board telemetry for £3,600. 

Seats buck the usual Lambo trend by being very comfortable and easily adjusted – no height adjustment, but they tilt, which is actually far more useful. If only they’d covered the whole dash in flocking – the reflections are horrendous. The view out the back isn’t much better either, the STO’s central spine blocking visibility, while the side mirrors are dominated by the side fins and rear spoiler. To be fair, that is quite a captivating sight.

As a position to experience the STO from, it’s spot on. You’re very, very low, with your feet thrust into the nose and a deep, deep windscreen. There’s not much sound deadening, so noises echo around and stones ping into the arches. It’s unfiltered, feels exotic and exciting. And well made. Audi’s influence means cabin quality is good, and the screen functionality is decent, too. Go to the effort of removing the engine cover (there’s a special triangular key down the driver’s footwell) and while the gold topped engine captures your attention initially, you soon notice that the rest of it is scruffier than you might expect. 

And don’t even think about practicality. There’s no cupholders inside, and the nose area is as awkward to access as the engine and – helmet aside – almost pointlessly small. You’ll put stuff on the narrow parcel shelf alongside the fire extinguisher which cost you £540.
