The Last Dance: 631hp Lamborghini Huracan STJ

Lamborghini’s latest special edition, the Huracan STJ, may not be as visually extravagant as expected for a “Last Dance” model, but its performance enhancements make it a track-focused marvel. Building upon the already potent STO variant, the STJ prioritises setting blistering lap times.

One of the key upgrades is the introduction of four-way-adjustable dampers, replacing the previous active setup, significantly improving mechanical grip. This enhanced adjustability allows for lower spring stiffness without sacrificing control or steering feel. Coupled with bespoke Bridgestone Potenza race tires on 20-inch centre-locking wheels, the STJ promises unparalleled handling.

Powering the STJ is a dry-sumped 631hp 5.2-litre V10 engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, delivering thrilling rear-wheel-drive performance.

Aerodynamic enhancements include subtle revisions to the front splitter, new dive planes, and a three-degree increase in the rear wing angle, boosting aerodynamic load without compromising balance.

The “ST” designation pays homage to Lamborghini’s Super Trofeo racing series, while the “J” references FIA regulations and iconic Lamborghini models like the Miura SVJ and Aventador SVJ. These improvements translate to a more than one-second reduction in lap time compared to the STO at Lamborghini’s test track.

Limited to just 10 units, the Huracan STJ offers customers a choice between two configurations and livery options, marking the culmination of the Huracán’s decade-long success story. It paves the way for an exciting new plug-in-hybrid successor set to debut later this year.
