Only 10 units of the Lamborghini Huracán STJ will be produced marking the end of the naturally aspirated V10 model

With Lamborghini’s push for an electrified future, it’s almost time to say goodbye to another icon of the Raging Bull, the naturally aspirated screaming V10 petrol engine. Fortunately, the marque isn’t letting the pure V10 bow out on a whimper and, in true Lamborghini fashion, they have unveiled the Huracán STJ. There’s more to its exclusivity than the fact that only 10 units will be produced as there are some unique touches to the sports car.

What has remained the same is the 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine like the Huracán STO it is based on. It makes 640 hp and is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox with rear-wheel drive. 

Now to what makes this Huracán special. It starts with four adjustable motor sport-derived shock-absorbers and a unique set of Bridgestone Potenza Race tyres to improve mechanical grip. In addition, the aerodynamics have been revised with two carbon-fibre appendages and a rear wing with a more aggressive angle of attack, allowing a 10 percent increase in aerodynamic load. In fact all these gains together mean that this Huracán is over a second quicker than the Huracán STO around the Nardò Technical Center Handling Track.

The Huracán STJ is a fine swansong for the iconic naturally aspirated V10 that did duty in the Gallardo and then the Huracán. The Huracán is set to be replaced with a hybrid sports car that is expected to be revealed towards the end of this year.
