Automobili Lamborghini’s Limited Edition Huracán STJ Soars With Aerodynamic Mastery

Automobili Lamborghini introduces the Huracán STJ (Super Trofeo Jota), a limited edition comprising just 10 units, marking the culmination of the V10-powered super sports car era and a tribute to the brand’s engineering heritage. Drawing inspiration from the Huracán STO, the STJ model represents the highest point of performance attained within the Huracán family—an exclusive package that is tailored to amplify its racing essence. This exclusive model features a bespoke aerodynamic kit meticulously developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse engineers, based on a decade of expertise garnered from Gran Turismo competitions. Additionally, the angle of the rear wing has been heightened by three degrees, compared with the standard model, ensuring a 10 per cent increase in its aerodynamic downforce while maintaining optimal balance.
