The Lamborghini Huracan STJ Might Actually Be The Last One, Maybe

Yes, it’s another ‘last Lamborghini Huracan’ but the STJ might actually be it for the sports car. Possibly.

We’ve been here before, haven’t we? The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato was meant to be the last of the sports car, only, it wasn’t because then we got the Tecnica. Oh, but that also wasn’t the final one, because the STO SC 10 Anniversario would be. Actually, no, it isn’t, because now there’s the STJ.

In fairness, Lamborghini is describing the STJ as ‘the last celebration of the super sports car’ ahead of its replacement being revealed, which we’re expecting to be the Temerario, later this year. We’ll take that statement at face value for now.

It’s not shocking news, we reported a while back that Lamborghini had trademarked ‘Huracan STJ’, with STJ standing for Super Trofeo Jota.

Effectively, what we’re looking at here is an STO with some aerodynamic improvements developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the arm responsible for its GT racing efforts. That includes two new canards on the front bumper and a rear wing with its angle adjusted by three degrees. There’s also a set of manually adjustable dampers replacing the active system along with especially-developed Bridgestone Potenza tyres.

Hang on, that all sounds a bit familiar. Oh, yes, those are the exact same changes made to the SC 10 Anniversario. Hmm.

Where the STJ differs from the SCO is in its livery, the STJ badging cutout in the rear bumper and with a model-specific ‘1 of 10’ carbon fibre badge. If you haven’t guessed from that, just 10 will be made.

Its 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 remains unchanged from the base STO (and again, the SC) with 631bhp and 417 lb-ft of torque sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch. It does have the claim of being the last V10-powered production car for now, though, and probably ever for that matter.

No word on how much a Lamborghini Huracan STJ will cost you. Not that it matters, because we’ll presume every single one has been sold by now. Keep your fingers crossed that Lamborghini still has one more in it.
