2021 Lamborghini Huracan STO price and specs

The 2021 Lamborghini Huracan STO is now on sale in Australia, priced from $596,000 plus on-road costs. This places it at the top of the Huracan line-up, but still leaves it priced below the entry-level Aventador (which starts from $788,914 plus on-road costs). Drive for the range-topping supercar comes from a mid-mounted 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine, sending 470kW/565Nm to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
