Lamborghini's Last V10 Huracan STJ Revealed: A Timeline of Lambo's V10 Odyssey

It’s the last dance for the Huracan Super Trofeo Jota (STJ)

Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini has revealed the Huracan Super Trofeo Jota, the last Lambo that will be fitted with the legendary V10 engine. Limited only to 10 units worldwide, the STJ is powered by a 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated, V10 engine that makes a peak power of 630hp and a maximum torque of 565Nm mated to a 7-speed dual-speed automatic transmission with all the power delivered to the rear wheels. Unfortunately, given the STJ is only limited to 10 units worldwide, we do not expect the car to reach our shores, and even if it does, it will be priced more than the Huracan STO, which is sold at INR 4.99 crore, ex-showroom.

Nonetheless, given how legendary the V10 engine has been in the history of Lamborghini, we have drafted a timeline of how it has been employed since 2004.


The first-ever V10 produced by Lamborghini was in 2003 for the legendary Gallardo, which was equipped with a 5.0-litre ninety degree engine. The car officially made its debut in 2004 and remained in production until 2014. For 10 years, multiple iterations of the car were produced, including a change in the size of the of the engine, which went up to a 5.2-litre configuration. The last model of the Gallardo was a red LP570-4 SpyderPerformante. Between 2004 and 2014, Lamborghini sold 14,022 Gallardos.

In 2015, the Lamborghini Huracan replaced the Gallardo and has been the company’s only V10 in their line-up. The 2015 edition made 605hp of peak power and maximum torque 413Nm of torque, because of which the car used to sprint from a standstill to 96 kilometres per hour in merely 2.8 seconds – further thanks to its all-wheel-drive configuration. The car quickly became so popular that Lamborghini introduced a convertible version of the Huracan.

As of now, Lamborghini has three models in India. The first one is the hybrid Revuelto, which is powered by a 12-cylinder, 6,498cc engine coupled with an electric unit that makes a peak power of 1001.11bhp at 9,250rpm and a maximum torque of 725Nm at 6,750rpm. In India, the car begins at a price-tag of INR 8.9 crore. 

Moving on to Huracan, there are four iterations available, such as the Sterrato, Tecnica, STO, and EvoSpyder. All four cars are powered by the same 5.2-litre V10 engine, but the features and configuration vary in these models, and therefore, there is fluctuation in the price tag as well. Till the end of 2023, Lamborghini recorded 6,087 deliveries of the Huracan. 

Apart from the above-mentioned sportscar, Lamborghini also sells the Urus, the company’s first-ever sporty SUV, which is available in two iterations – the S and the Performante. The Urus is powered by 3,996cc/3,999cc engine depending on the iteration. The 4.0-litre engine makes a peak power of 657.10bhp at 6,000rpm and a maximum torque of 850Nm at 2,250-4,500rpm. The base variant of the Urus begins at INR 4.18 crore. 

As the Huracan’s chapter comes to an end, the next thing from Lamborghini will be a new Huracan with possibly a V8 twin-turbo engine. The prototype of the model has already been spotted on the streets, but the launch date has yet to be confirmed.
