The Lamborghini Huracan STO vs. The BMW M8 CS

 These two supercars have a lot to offer. But who reigns supreme? Let's take a closer look at this.

The Lamborghini Huracan STO

According to new spy photos taken at the Nurburgring, German automaker BMW may soon release an even faster version of the M8 Coupe.It will be known as the M8 CS, and it will join the recently launched M5 CS super saloon in the automaker's lineup, offering a minor power boost and some fairly extensive chassis modifications designed to make it more road-ready.

The M8 CS is expected to arrive in the United Kingdom by the end of this year. It could cost £40,000 ($56,600) more than the M5 Competition and M5 CS, so BMW customers should budget around £160,000 ($226,500) for it. It's not cheap, but drivers know they're getting the best when they buy a BMW.

BMW has received some negative press as a result of a Reuters report stating that the German luxury carmaker would have to set aside $1.2 billion less than previously anticipated for anticipated European antitrust fines for alleged collusion with rivals on emission-reduction technologies. Hopefully, the M8 CS will assist them in changing their fortunes.

As promising as the M8 CS appears, Motor Authority reports that Lamborghini now has a faster Huracan, the STO, which was also spotted testing at the Nurburgring. For those who crave speed, Lamborghini's new model could devastate BMW's latest speedster's fortunes.

So, which one will be superior in the future? Let's learn everything we can about BMW and Lamborghini's upcoming vehicles.

The Design of the New BMW M8 CS

The new M8 CS's chassis upgrades appear to be more extensive. Its height is significantly lower than before, and behind its alloy wheels are new cross-drilled brake discs and larger callipers. However, you should not expect any radical changes from the M5 CS, as there should be plenty of carry-over components from that model.Suspension dampers, for example, should be upgraded and returned, and engine mounts should be stiffer.

Despite this, BMW has added these visual tweaks for a reason; they are intended to provide both function and form. The deeper front splitter, massive rear wing, and assertive new diffuser will improve the coupe's aerodynamic performance, while the modified vents behind the front wheel arches should help dismiss high-pressure air and heat from the brakes.

When many people step inside the new M8 CS, they will undoubtedly feel as if they are driving a racing car, thanks to the interior's two lightweight bucket seats, an Alcantara steering wheel, new coloured seat belts, and some carbon fibre trim. A 12.3-inch infotainment system replaces the standard car's 10.25-inch unit, which improves the infotainment system.There's also the option to remove the car's infotainment system, climate control, and rear seats. They should also be prepared for a roll cage.

The Performance of the New BMW M8 CS

Similarly to the design of the new M8 CS, the German automaker has decided to align the engine of its latest model with that of the M5 CS. It will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine with 626 BHP and 750 Nm of torque.

Other modifications would include a better oil system, a freer-flowing exhaust, and a complete engine ECU remap. Unfortunately, the upgrades should only result in the M8 Competition being 10 BHP faster than BMW's newest vehicle. The M8's eight-speed automatic transmission and configurable four-wheel drive will also be retained. Measures to stiffen the chassis and reduce weight are also possible.

Could The Lamborghini Huracan STO Outperform The BMW M8 CS?

The Huracan STO, which was unveiled last year, is based on the Huracan Super Trofeo race car, and like the new M8 CS, its weight has been reduced while its aerodynamic performance has been improved. The STO's naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine produces 630 horsepower.

Multiple air ducts in the front of the car aid in the performance of the STO, which now has a single cowl connecting the fenders and the hood.

Germany's well-known automaker has created a luxurious and incredibly fast M8 CS, and there are numerous reasons why BMW customers should be excited about it. The Huracan STO, on the other hand, ticks all the boxes for those who want to go a little faster and can afford it.
