Farewell to a Legend: Lamborghini's Final Huracan STJ Edition Marks the End of an Era

Lamborghini is bidding farewell to the Huracan and its iconic V-10 engine with an exclusive final edition. The Super Trofeo Jota (STJ) takes inspiration from the STO model but pushes the boundaries even further to create the ultimate iteration. Limited to just 10 units, this hardcore variant marks the conclusion of a remarkable decade-long journey for the "baby Lambo."

Despite expectations of increased power, enthusiasts may find themselves surprised. The Huracan STJ retains its naturally aspirated 5.2-liter powerhouse, delivering 631 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. Power is channeled to the rear wheels through the same dual-clutch, seven-speed automatic transmission. Notably, the STJ boasts hardware enhancements over the STO, notably featuring four adjustable shock absorbers derived from race car technology.

Complementing the performance upgrades are 20-inch center-lock wheels wrapped in bespoke Bridgestone Potenza Race tires. Carbon fiber flicks adorn the front bumper, enhancing aerodynamics alongside a reconfigured rear wing. Tested at the Nardo track, the Huracan STJ has proven its prowess by shaving off more than a second from the STO's lap time.

To distinguish itself further, Lamborghini offers two striking liveries. One showcases a vibrant blue hue with a contrasting black roof, accentuated by red and white details. The alternative gray variant boasts a black roof with red and white accents. Inside the cabin, a numbered "1 of 10" carbon fiber plate signifies the STJ's exclusivity, while owners can opt for additional customizable features.

While the Huracan STJ may not match the sheer audacity of its predecessor, such as the track-focused Sesto Elemento, it marks the end of an era. Not only does it bid farewell to the Huracan lineage, but it also signifies the departure of the revered V-10 engine. With the recent discontinuation of the Audi R8, powered by the same engine, the future of the venerable 5.2 FSI engine appears limited.

While pricing details remain undisclosed, they hold little significance as all 10 units have already been spoken for. Lamborghini has announced that production has sold out, ensuring these rare specimens have found their fortunate owners. As the automotive world eagerly awaits the unveiling of the Huracan's successor later this year, it's evident that it will mark a new chapter, albeit without the beloved naturally aspirated V-10 engine, likely replaced by a downsized turbocharged unit as part of a hybrid powertrain.
