The Lamborghini Huracan is a solid, powerful car, and making it possible are several crucial elements. One of which is COFANGO, a ‘Made in Lamborghini’ design solution. The word Cofango was coined by Automobili Lamborghini and is derived from the fusion of two Italian words - cafano, which means hood, and parafango, which means fender. And it describes the design solution in which the fender, hood, and front bumper integrated into a single unit. Inspired by Lamborghini Miura and Sesto Elemento, in STO the component is made from very light carbon fibre material. The Cofango in STO is developed by the automaker’s in-house R&D team and is made using an innovative 3DCpriniting tech.
