The Lamborghini Huracan STJ signifies the swan song of both the Huracan lineage and the revered V-10 engine, culminating in a final special edition limited to just ten units. Dubbed the Super Trofeo Jota (STJ), this ultimate iteration builds upon the foundation of the STO model, elevating performance and exclusivity to new heights.

Despite expectations of a power boost, the Huracan STJ maintains the potency of its predecessor, harnessing the raw force of the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10 engine delivering 631 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. Power is efficiently channeled to the rear wheels through a dual-clutch, seven-speed automatic transmission, ensuring a visceral driving experience reminiscent of its predecessors.

Setting itself apart from the STO, the STJ introduces notable hardware enhancements, notably the incorporation of four adjustable shock absorbers derived from race car technology. Complemented by 20-inch center-lock wheels shod in bespoke Bridgestone Potenza Race tires, the STJ boasts improved handling and agility, further refined through aerodynamic enhancements such as carbon fiber flicks and a revised rear wing angle, validated through rigorous testing at the Nardo track.

Distinctive exterior liveries, including a striking blue finish with contrasting red and white accents, underscore the STJ’s exclusivity, accentuated by bespoke carbon fiber detailing and a numbered “1 of 10” plate denoting its limited production status. Inside the cabin, owners are treated to bespoke touches, including the option for customizable plates, further emphasizing the bespoke nature of this final Huracan variant.

While some may lament the absence of significant weight reduction akin to the track-focused Sesto Elemento of the Gallardo era, the Huracan STJ nevertheless represents the end of an era, signaling not only the conclusion of the Huracan’s tenure but also the venerable V-10 engine’s legacy. With the impending introduction of the Huracan’s successor, anticipated to feature a downsized, likely turbocharged engine as part of a hybrid powertrain, the STJ serves as a poignant reminder of the evolution of Lamborghini’s iconic lineage.

Though pricing remains undisclosed, the insignificance of such details is eclipsed by the fact that all ten units of the Huracan STJ have already been spoken for, reaffirming its status as a coveted collector’s piece. As Lamborghini prepares to unveil the next chapter in its illustrious history, the Huracan STJ stands as a testament to the brand’s unwavering commitment to innovation, performance, and exclusivity.
