Lamborghini says goodbye to the Huracán with one last limited edition, the STJ

Automobili Lamborghini presents the Huracán STJ, a limited edition of ten examples and the final tribute to the super sports car equipped with the V10 engine, a technical icon of the automaker from Sant’Agata Bolognese. The V10 naturally aspirated engine is a symbol of Automobili Lamborghini’s history and contributes to the success of the Huracán family, first introduced in 2014, which will be replaced by an all-new super sports car with a new hybrid powertrain by the end of the year.

With a design based on the Huracán STO, the STJ represents the pinnacle of performance in the history of the Huracán family, 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 is a homage to the Lamborghini Makes Championship, founded in 2009, while Jota refers to Appendix J of the FIA ​​regulations, which sets out racing car specifications, and a long tradition of Lamborghini models designed for the track, ranging from the Miura SVJ to to the Aventador SVJ.

The Huracán STJ stands out for its special aerodynamic package, developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse technicians, taking advantage of the know-how acquired over ten years at the top of Gran Turismo competitions. The STO’s sophisticated aerodynamics have been further improved with the addition of the iconic “Cofango”: two all-new aerodynamic appendages (flicks) made of carbon fiber, while the angle of the rear wing has been increased by 3° compared to the production model for an increase in aerodynamic loading by 10 % while keeping the car perfectly balanced.

Like the STO, the Huracán STJ delivers a maximum power of 640 CV at 8000 rpm and a torque of 565 Nm (at 8000 rpm), controlled by a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (LDF – Lamborghini Doppia Frizione), combined with which only has rear wheel drive.

Mechanical grip has been significantly increased with a set of four adjustable racing-derived shock absorbers that replace the stock active components. The shock absorbers are adjustable in four directions to optimize rebound and compression at both high and low frequencies, giving complete freedom in tuning depending on the track characteristics. The special properties of the shock absorbers enable lower spring stiffness while at the same time providing optimal dynamic control of the vehicle and increased steering precision. To maximize driving dynamics, special Bridgestone Potenza Race tires have been developed, made from a special high-grip compound and mounted on 20-inch single-nut rims.

These technical features made it possible to improve the lap time on the Nardò Technical Center Handling Track by more than a second compared to the Huracán STO.

The sporty character and exclusivity of the vehicle is also reflected in the aesthetics, with two different configurations and paint options largely designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile. The first combines a body in Grigio Telesto (gray) with a roof in Nero Noctis (black) and details in Rosso Mars (red) and Bianco Isi (white), while the cabin is replaced by Nero Cosmus (black) Alcantara seats with leather details and Contrasting features include Rosso Alala seams (red). The second configuration features a Blu Eliadi (blue) body 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”. It is also possible to attach an individual sign on the passenger side according to customer requirements.
