Shmee150’s Huracan STO registered 134 dB on the Nordschleife.
The Lamborghini Huracan made its debut in 2014. Since then, the Italian manufacturer has launched a variety of V10 supercars, but the present STO is unquestionably unique. The Super Trofeo Omologata is a cross between a road-going Lamborghini and the specialised Huracan race vehicle, with a harsher edge that makes it perfect for driving to the track, turning some scorching laps, and then returning home.
That is, unless the circuit in question is the Nürburgring. Apparently, the fiery Huracan is a little too noisy for a Touristenfahrten session on the Nordschleife.

On a recent trip to the driving mecca, YouTuber Shmee150 witnessed this firsthand. He was eager to put his new Huracan STO to the test on the famed north loop, and he brought along a slew of cameras to document the journey. He came in during a busy open track session, and he had expressed some anxiety about the volume before he arrived. The Nordschleife apparently has a noise restriction of 130 dB, but his STO reported 134 dB throughout his one loop of the course. Oops.

The Huracan appears to be entirely stock in the video. The Huracan was also put in STO mode – the softest driving option – for the lap, according to Shmee. Trofeo is tuned for track use, with notably stiffer suspension and steering, as well as a much louder engine. He planned to run the first lap in STO mode, followed by at least one more circuit in Trofeo as a comparison. Unfortunately, officials at the Nürburgring put a stop to that, so he departed the circuit to, well, test the Lambo’s track mode on public streets where there aren’t any sound rules.

The track administrators were kind in their response, saying that noise was an issue for other stock Lamborghinis as well. Shmee was nice about the event as well, but for one beautiful lap, the 5.2-liter V10 was putting its 630 horsepower to good use (470 kilowatts). We observed speeds of up to 155 mph in some areas of the track, all while sharing the road with a motley crew of vehicles ranging from a Porsche 911 GT3 RS to a very brave driver in a Peugeot hot hatchback giving it his all.
