Lamborghini Huracán STO Time Chaser_111100 is "Opera Unica", a unique limited edition that brilliantly expresses the theme of IKEUCHI cybernetics and Lamborghini's historical 60 years, embracing the shared values of always being at the forefront of the times and breaking the rules of the past through creative and authentic expression. The influence of Lamborghini's heritage is evident in the explicit references to the racing colors of previous anniversary models and in the use of 111100, the binary code for the number 60, in the name itself.

Drawing inspiration from Lamborghini's rich heritage, IKEUCHI has used original parts from past anniversary models for these creations, such as Lamborghini Countach 25 years old, Lamborghini Diablo SE30, Lamborghini Murcielago 40 years old and Lamborghini Aventador LP-720-4 50 years. Combining these details and more, IKEUCHI has reinterpreted the Huracan STO in its signature futuristic, cyber-industrial style.

Davide Sfrekola, head of Japan Automobili Lamborghini, added:

“We are very pleased to enter into such a valuable partnership with IKEUCHI, which represents the future of Japan. From broken motherboards, plastics to electrical wires whimsically combined to create an apocalyptic cyberpunk aesthetic, it enhances and explores the connection and relationship between people and technology in a country so rich in millennial traditions and modern culture. There is a great passion for art in all its forms, which inevitably permeates even aspects of everyday life. For a brand that has enriched the land of colors, this collaboration will add further nuances to the recognition of Japan and Automobili Lamborghini.”
