Having been around since 2014, some would argue that the Lamborghini Huracan is getting better and better. However, supercars do not follow the usual 6-7 year life cycle as these tend to last longer. It’s not like exotic brands pumping out hundreds of cars on a regular basis because high-end vehicles take more time to assemble. Some also have motorsport versions, and in certain situations, even more than one.
Just as the Huracan got the Super Trofeo derivative in 2014 and the GT2 in 2020. There was also a GT3 that was launched in 2015 before getting the Evo version in 2018.

These are usually road cars borrowing upgrades from track engines, but in this case, it will be the other way around. It is said, STO itself is a derivative of the Huracan Super Trofeo race car, so the previous statement is not entirely true.
Current owners of the Huracan GT3 EVO will be given the opportunity to convert their car to the EVO2 spec, which Sanna says will be “very different” from the existing model. An evolution of an evolution, the Lamborghini GT3 EVO2 will be eligible to compete until the end of the 2026 motorsport season.
