I've been a long time reader of the forum, and this is my first post.
I have been planning a spec for a Huracan EVO over the last few weeks. I've been given an estimated delivery date of circa June next year if I get the deposit in next week... however... I had a call from the dealership this morning to say they could offer me a slot for an STO either which would also arrive in June next year.
As much as I appreciate and respect what the STO is, I've never been a 'wing' guy, and one of my favourite things about the Huracan design, is the clean sloping design of the rear of the car.
I currently have a Lamborghini Huracan 610-4, which I love, but I've always wanted to spec my own, so I am really looking forward to speccing my own Huracan, however I am now trying to make my mind up, which is the better option... EVO or STO.
Some notes and thoughts:
01 - Considering this (EVO or STO) is very much likely to be the last NA engine, I was planning on this car being a keeper (I already have a few classics), so it is important that it is a car that I like, and not to just choose the one that the market likes because of the hype associated with a limited edition variant (i.e - the STO), or trying to buy a car that will hold it's value best (i don't buy cars as investments... I buy them to drive and enjoy, and any form of appreciation is just an upside)
02 - Would I be mad to pass on the opportunity to get an STO?
03 - How limited will the STO be... how special is the car over the standard EVO? Maybe it's a case that anyone can order one now?
04 - I don't track cars (yes, I'm boring)... I prefer to go for a spirited drive when the roads are quite, late at night
05 - Maybe remove the wing for a few weeks and see how I feel, as it looks easy to add back on
The main question that I am asking myself is... given that I plan on holding onto this car as a keeper... in 10 years time, would I regret not choosing the more limited / special edition STO?
While I understand this is all a personal preference, I'd really welcome other people's thoughts on the forum, as I'm sure there are lots of other things to consider. Thanks in advance for your help.
