Lamborghini Unveils Swansong Huracan STJ

Just 10 units of the Lamborghini Huracan STJ will be produced, marking the end of the V10 era.

Lamborghini has recently pulled the wraps off the Huracan STJ, a limited-edition model that marks the end of the line for their iconic V10 engine.

With only ten units in production, the Huracan STJ is a reverent nod to the engine that has powered some of Lamborghini's most exhilarating moments on the track.

The heart of the Huracan STJ, the naturally-aspirated V10, is a piece of Lamborghini's soul and a cornerstone of the Huracan family's success. This engine will make way for a new hybrid powertrain.

Drawing inspiration from the Huracan STO, the Huracan STJ goes a step further with an exclusive package that intensifies the racing DNA of its predecessor, celebrating the highest achievements of the Huracan lineage.

Its name, Super Trofeo Jota, intertwines two rich narratives - 'Trofeo' harks back to Lamborghini's one-make championship initiated in 2009, and 'Jota' references the FIA's Appendix J, which dictates specifications for racing cars, echoing the ethos of track-focused beasts like the Aventador SVJ.

The aerodynamics of the STJ have been meticulously crafted by the minds at Lamborghini Squadra Corse, capitalising on a decade of dominance in Gran Turismo competitions.

Features like the innovative 'cofango' and an enhanced rear wing angle elevate the car's aerodynamic efficiency, boosting its load by 10% while maintaining impeccable balance.

The STJ also boasts mechanical enhancements that sharpen its edge on the track. It swaps standard active components for four adjustable racing-derived shock absorbers.

These allow for fine-tuned adjustments to rebound and compression, adapting effortlessly to the unique demands of different racetracks.

Paired with specially developed Bridgestone Potenza Race tyres and 20-inch single-nut rims, the car's handling and dynamics shaved a full second off the Huracan STO’s lap time at the Nardo Technical Center Handling Track.

As for appearances, the Huracan STJ doesn't shy away from making a statement. It is available in two configurations, each designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile.

The first features Grigio Telesto bodywork with contrasting Nero Noctis roof, punctuated by Rosso Mars and Bianco Isi details, while the interior dazzles with Nero Cosmus Alcantara seats, detailed with Rosso Alala stitching.

The second configuration stays true to its sporty essence with a Blu Eliadi body, again with the Nero Noctis roof, and similar detailing.

Each model proudly bears a numbered carbon fibre plate, declaring its exclusivity as "1 of 10", with customisation options available for those who wish to make their mark on this piece of automotive history.
