This Is Jay Leno’s Favorite Lamborghini Model Ever

This Is Jay Leno’s Favorite Lamborghini Model Ever

There’s no real need to make a lengthy introduction to Jay Leno. An American television host, comedian, and writer, he has been on the scene for so long that generations know all about him. What’s more, it’s probably hard to find a gear head who doesn’t follow Jay Leno’s review of cars.

As an avid collector of cars, Jay Leno made quite an admirable garage for himself, to say the least. But one particularly interesting fact is that this car enthusiast has a soft spot for Lamborghini. Does that surprise you? No, of course not.

We’ve heard Jay Leno dwell on his Lamborghini Muira for being one of his favorite rides from this brand. Considering the Miura is an iconic and beautiful car, we can only be jealous of Leno having it as a part of the collection.

But another Lamborghini arrived in Jay Leno’s garage that now threatens to steal the place of the Miura — if it already hasn’t done so. The 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO is everything a modern ride should be — powerful, beautiful, and exciting — and Jay Leno had a chance to test it.

Why Is Jay Leno Thrilled With The 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO?

The first thing you’ll hear Jay Leno say in his review of the 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO is that this ride may well be his favorite ever. Then, he’ll admit he’s been a dedicated Lamborghini fan since being a little kid. But what makes Jay Leno love the Huracan STO?

Well, first, it’s similar to the Miura (surprise, surprise). Secondly, the Huracan STO simply takes what’s great about the Miura and makes it better. The new Lambo model is more powerful, modern, and faster, among other things.

Jay Leno took it for a spin on the street and got amazed by the performance. The 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO did what Leno craved it to do as a fan of road race-based cars — showed great power and stability for an unmatched driving experience.

The 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO: Here’s What We Learned From Jay Leno’s Talk With Andrea Baldi (…And More)

You’ll be surprised to hear that Jay Leno still doesn’t own the 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO, but that may change quickly. He got a test ride and invited Andrea Baldi, the chief executive of Lamborghini America, for a talk.

In the review, along with finding out why Leno loves this ride so much, we also got a glimpse of other impressive specs of the Huracán STO. Afterward, we felt compelled to further explore this sports car and came out of the research with the following info.

The 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO Is All About Aerodynamics

If we learned one thing from the talk Jay Leno had with Andrea Baldi is that the 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO is wholly designed with aerodynamics in mind. The 75{7e44665ad31c7163a3225b5cdeca12ae8e1ba5a9651d05b2285576263eb8f3ac} carbon-fiber body tells us a lot, but there’s also the Cofango, a specially designed front hood that attaches to the fender. This one-piece body component significantly reduces weight, along with the other low-profile parts in both the front and the rear.

What we also like are the air scoop and the shark fin at the rear that channel the air during rides for better performance. They also look pleasantly aggressive, if you ask us.

Of course, another exceptional thing about the 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO is the power. The car packs the naturally-aspirated V10 engine in the rear that produces 640 horsepower and 565 Nm of torque. What’s more, it reaches 62 mph in just 3 seconds and develops a top speed of a magnificent 193 mph.

But Jay Leno wouldn’t be so impressed with these specs if outstanding handling and stability were not in the picture as well. He said that he loves the STO precisely for being more stable at higher speeds than the Muira, which tends to wobble a little when you push it on the road.

The 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO Is As Modern As It Gets

Sadly, we don’t have enough room to explore all the aspects and features of the 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO in this short review. However, we have to mention its modern styling and high-end tech interior. The STO is equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable ride, but is not overloaded unnecessarily.

As Jay Leno put it, the Huracan STO is all quick and sharp. Both the low-profile exterior and the stripped interior show that, but not as a bad thing, far from it. The 2022 Lamborghini Huracán STO is a pure embodiment of the modern car design gone right, and it will certainly steal the hearts of many people, not just Jay Leno.
