Lamborghini has unveiled the 2023 Huracán Tecnica, following its arrival in Australia. Customer deliveries for the next-generation rear-wheel drive V10, developed for pilots seeking driving fun and performance on both road and track will start in Q2 next year.
The Tecnica’s moniker embodies the advanced evolution of the Huracan’s technical prowess and, instantly distinguishable, is as much a Huracán innovation externally as it is under the hood, with its new looks, improved aerodynamics, stability and ease of use.
Taking its engine from the Huracán STO, the powertrain delivers 470kW of power from its 5.2-litre motor, and 565Nm of torque. It can sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. It features a recalibrated LDVI system and distinctly tuned driving modes.
It features a specific suspension set-up, rear-wheel direct steering, and innovative brake cooling improvements to suit both road and track. With a dry weight of 1,379kg, a sharper engine sound, and improved acoustic comfort, the Tecnica offers perfect driving dynamics.
Depending on the drive mode selected – STRADA, SPORT or CORSA – every dynamic system is calibrated to provide a highly differentiated response to each environment.
In STRADA, the rear-wheel-steering provides stability and manoeuvrability, complemented by the torque vectoring and P-TCS. The engine and gearbox are both tuned for comfortable everyday driving in every setting.
When SPORT mode is selected, maximum driving fun comes from the rear-wheel steering’s enhanced oversteer and the enhanced slip threshold of the P-TCS, while torque vectoring ensures the Tecnica’s agility and responsiveness in the hands of the driver.
In CORSA mode, the car and driver’s race spirit is awoken, with every input delivered with extreme precision. The powertrain is calibrated to provide optimised track-oriented throttle response and the fastest gearshifts, and maximum lateral and longitudinal grip.
Behind the 20-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, the Tecnica’s carbon ceramic brakes adopt specifically designed cooling deflectors and calliper ducts, directing the airflow into the discs to maximise heat dissipation, reduce fluid temperatures and brake pedal elongation.
A revised design creates a stronger, aggressive stance, with an inward-facing front with muscular shoulders, and a lightweight carbon fibre hood. A new bumper features the Terzo Millennio’s black Ypsilon design, incorporates an air curtain for the first time in a Huracán.
A new front splitter, with lower, open slats directing air through the wheels, contributes to improved downforce and cooling. Black at the base of the windscreen increases the lightweight impression.
The sculptural architecture that defines a Lamborghini is evident in the revised rear too, with a new vertical rear glass window for improved visibility, while a redesigned engine hood in lightweight carbon fibre celebrates its V10 heart.
The powerful rear incorporates a new bumper with optimised air inlet; diffuser painted in body colour or optional black; and combines new hexagonal exhaust pipes that deliver the enhanced fanfare from the Tecnica’s powertrain.
While aesthetically, the fixed rear wing completes the unique lines of this limited run Lamborghini model, its design essentially contributes to a 35 per cent improvement in rear downforce, compared to the Huracán EVO RWD.
There’s also no increase in drag, rather, it’s reduced by 20 per cent, improving aero balance and supporting stability during braking and turning speed. The Tecnica’s underbody is also optimised with new aero deflectors for improved aerodynamic efficiency.
Its versatility continues inside, with height-adjustable sports seats, and optional lightweight door design; a rear arch and wheel bolts in lightweight titanium; and harness seat belts for those heading more regularly to the circuit.
A redesigned, sophisticated HMI interface is exclusive to the Tecnica. The driver’s instrument panel reduces colours and emphasises readability. The central console screen shows LDVI functions in real-time display, as well as providing connectivity.
It’s here you’ll find Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa. Inspired by the STO, the HMI includes connected telemetry and on-board diaries of destinations and track times, connected to the UNICA app.
Standard and optional colour and trim choices lend themselves to both luxury-oriented and more sporty specifications. Together with eight standard exterior colours, more than 200 additional paint options are available through the Ad Personam program.
A new interior trim in Alcantara, designed specifically for Tecnica, and a raft of stitching and styling options, also feature.
The 2023 Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica is priced from $440,900 plus on-roads, with with customer deliveries commencing in the first half of 2023. Contact your nearest Lamborghini dealership for more info. If you need finance, talk to CreditOne.
