Ever since the Revuelto made its global debut, there has been anticipation around the Huracan and its impending demise, which now officially seems to have arrived. Lamborghini is calling it the last dance, which is making us a little misty-eyed. Meet the Huracan STJ; the last of the NA V10s.

Before you even think of grabbing your cheque book, let us take this moment to tell you, that only 10 of the luckiest people in the world will ever be able to get behind this bull’s steering wheel. Based on the STO, the STJ here stands for Super Trofeo Jota; the ‘Super Trofeo’ pays homage to Lamborghini’s one-make championship, while the J refers to other track-specific models such as the Aventador SVJ.

Based on the STO, but the Huracan STJ gets a race-derived suspension setup

The ‘cofango’ has been further tweaked with new carbonfibre appendages, while the angle of the rear-wing has been increased by 3 degrees. The STJ now gets racing-derived shock-absorbers, which are four-way adjustable for rebound and compression. A special car must also wear special shoes, and so it gets Bridgestone Potenza race tyres made specifically from a high-grip compound, and these are shod on 20-inch single-nut rims. Lamborghini claims these tweaks have made the Huracan STJ one second faster than the STO around the Nardo Technical Centre track.

The Lamborghini Huracan STJ is in the same state of tune as the STO

The V10 powertrain on the Huracan STJ continues to be in the same state of tune as the STO, putting out 631 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 57.61 kgm of torque also at 8,000 rpm, all while being paired to the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

There are two different liveries on offer; the first livery consists of Grigio Telesto (grey in non-Lamborghini terms) as the body colour, while the roof gets black finish and the rest of the body receives red and white inserts. The insides are finished in black, while the Alcantara seats receive leather detailing and red contrasting inserts. The second livery gets blue body work with a black roof and red and white details. Both versions also feature a special, numbered carbon fiber plate marked 1 of 10, with a passenger-side custom plate coming as an option.

This is the end

By the time you finish reading this, the Huracan will have passed on, clearing the way for a new hybrid-powered sportscar whose ‘reckless’ nature may have been hinted at by Lamborghini. This successor will make its global debut by the end of this year. With this, not just the Huracan, but the V10 engine now join the Audi R8 (and many others) in eternal rest.

Ciao, Huracan. Riposa in pace, fratello mio!
