SINGAPORE - Lamborghini's newly released Huracan STO has a stated 0-100kmh timing of 3 seconds, making it one of the quickest rear-wheel drive cars in the world.

This is done by using more carbon fibre, dispensing with conventional interior door handles, having manual adjustments for seats, and even using glass which is 30 per cent lighter.
