Unlike Lamborghinis sold with Pirelli P Zero tires as standard, the Lamborghini Huracán STO is equipped with Bridgestone tires. More specifically, the Potenza Race tires of this car model were specially made by the Japanese tire company to help this “street racing car” achieve the best performance.

In order to optimize the Huracán STO’s performance on the track, Bridgestone has specifically developed for this model a special tire called Potenza Race, sold as an option in addition to the standard Potenza Sport tires. The Japanese tire company said that its semi-sticky racing tires were developed to help STO have good cornering, traction and braking capabilities on both racing tracks and street operating conditions. However, this tire will not be suitable for slippery roads or rain.

More specifically, the tire grooves are also marked with the three colors blue, white, red symbolizing the Italian flag while the tire sidewall has a logo dedicated to Lamborghini.

The compound that makes up the tire, as well as the pattern and tread, are all designed to maximize dry traction. Besides, tires also have a longer life on the track thanks to the maximum contact surface and more uniform pressure distribution. The special design has been perfected by Bridgestone through simulation design software to create many different tire sketches. The company also speeds up the product development process by using this technology, which also helps reduce research costs during testing.

“It’s great to be working with Lamborghini again, especially as the tire supplier for the Huracán STO,” said vice president of consumer replacement and equipment. of Bridgestone EMIA, Mr. Steven De Bock shared. “We were proud to launch the Potenza Sport tires customized for this car, and now we’re excited to bring the specially designed Potenza Race to those who like to experience the car on the track as well. like operating the vehicle at full capacity. Both of these tires maximize the car’s impressive capabilities in different ways and I’m proud to say a team can provide this level of detail and coverage to Lamborghini customers.” .

A special feature of this model is that it uses a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission to transmit power to the rear wheels instead of all four wheels. This supercar is capable of accelerating from 0 – 100 km/h in 3 seconds, 0 – 200 km/h in 9 seconds and a maximum speed of 310 km/h.
