The Lamborghini Huracan STJ Is The Last Celebration Of The Iconic V-10



Lamborghini Huracan STJ

Feast your eyes on the Lamborghini Huracán STJ, a final special-edition model that serves as a last celebration of the iconic V-10 supercar, which will be going away at end of the year after a 10-year run, replaced by an all-new super sports car equipped with a new hybrid powertrain.

With a design based on the sexy Huracán STO, the STJ represents the pinnacle of performance achieved in the Huracán family’s history, thanks to the introduction of an exclusive package designed to further enhance the racing spirit of the Huracán STO. STJ stands for Super Trofeo Jota: Super Trofeo pays tribute to the Lamborghini one-make championship, established in 2009, while Jota refers to Appendix J of the FIA Regulations that sets the racing car specs, and to a long tradition of Lamborghini models developed for the track, starting from the Miura SVJ and continuing with the Aventador SVJ.

The Lamborghini Huracán STJ stands out thanks to its dedicated aero package developed by Squadra Corse technicians, leveraging the know-how acquired over ten years at the top of Gran Turismo competitions. The sophisticated aerodynamics of the Huracán STO have been further improved with the addition of the iconic “cofango”: two all-new carbon fiber aerodynamic appendages, and the angle of the rear wing has been increased by 3° over to the production model for a 10% increase in aerodynamic load while keeping the car perfectly balanced.

Like the STO, the Huracán STJ is powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 that delivers 631 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque, controlled by a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission gearbox, combined with the rear-wheel drive only.

The mechanical grip has been increased significantly by a set of four adjustable racing-derived shock absorbers, which replace the standard active components. The shock absorbers are four-way adjustable to optimize the rebound and compression at both high and low frequencies, giving total freedom of choice in the set-up based on the track characteristics. The special characteristics of the shock absorbers allow for lower spring stiffness while maintaining optimal dynamic control of the car and increasing steering precision. To maximize the driving dynamics, special Bridgestone Potenza Race tires have been developed, made with a specific high grip compound and installed on 20” single-nut rims.

These technical features enabled an improvement of more than one second on the Nardò Technical Center Handling Track lap time compared to the Huracán STO.

The sporty character and exclusivity of the car are also reflected in the aesthetics, with two different configuration and livery options definitively designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile. The first combines Grigio Telesto (gray) bodywork combined with a Nero Noctis (black) roof and Rosso Mars (red) and Bianco Isi (white) details, while the cabin is characterized by Nero Cosmus (black) Alcantara seats with leather details and contrasting Rosso Alala (red) stitching.

The second configuration (shown in these photos) has Blu Eliadi (blue) bodywork with a Nero Noctis (black) roof and Rosso Mars (red) and Bianco Isi (white) details. Both versions also feature a special, numbered carbon fiber plate marked “1 of 10”. In addition, there is the option to add a custom plate on the passenger side according to the customer’s instructions.

Production of the special-edition Lamborghini Huracan STJ will be limited to just 10 examples. No word on how much a Lamborghini Huracan STJ will set you back, but it should come in a bit higher than the STO’s $327,838 starting price, given its improved specs and exclusivity.
