Special Edition 2023 Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Huracan STO

Ducati released a teaser image ahead of its first World Première 2023 episode, with all signs pointing to a new Lamborghini tie-in model based on the Streetfighter V4.

The image shows a green and red piece of carbon bodywork with the “STO” logo that matches that of the Lamborghini Huracán STO. The initials stand for “Super Trofeo Omologata“, indicating the street-legal version of Lamborghini’s Super Trofeo racecar. The color scheme appears to be a match to the STO’s “Verde Citrea” livery.

Ducati and Lamborghini are, of course, neighbors in Bologna, Italy, and more importantly, both subsidiaries of Audi and the Volkswagen Group. The two Italian brands have collaborated before with the 2021 Ducati Diavel Lamborghini. Lamborghini marks its 60th anniversary in 2023, so another Ducati tie-in model comes as little surprise.

Lightening up the teaser image gave us enough clues to identify the bodywork as a match for the Streetfighter V4, specifically the lower fairing. The shape is a bit different, with a new opening in the carbon fiber panel, but the position of the fastener and the subtle Italian flag graphic above it are the giveaways. You can also make out some of the hoses and cabling from the 1,103cc V-Four engine.

The first episode, titled “The Unexpected”, will stream live on Sept. 2 at 12:30 pm EST/9:30 am PST from the paddock of the Marco Simoncelli World Circuit in Misano, which is also hosting the 14th round of the 2022 MotoGP Championship this weekend.
