In what is expected to be the final naturally aspirated model release from the Italian car maker before a shift to hybrid and EV technology, Lamborghini has unveiled the Huracan Tecnica. It sports a fresh design, and draws its power from the STO.
Sporting rear-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering, the Tecnica represents the next generation evolution in aerodynamic design and engineering for the brand’s best selling car. It’s powered by a 5.2-litre V10 delivering 471kW of power and 565Nm of torque.
That engine is borrowed from the all-conquering track-focused STO, allowing it to sprint to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds. Tipping the scales at 1,379kg, it features a recalibrated LDVI system and distinctly tuned driving modes.
A specific suspension set-up and innovative brake cooling improvements allow the driver to experience the perfect Huracán for every occasion. Lamborghini describes it as a poignantly versatile super sports for road and track.
The uprated power is matched by an enhanced, sharper engine sound at higher revs while inside the cockpit, the Tecnica provides improved acoustic comfort. The revision of its exterior design is significant too, improving aerodynamic efficiency.
The new look lends the Tecnica a stronger, predatory stance; an inward-facing front with muscular shoulders meets a lightweight, fully carbon fibre hood. A new bumper featuring the Terzo Millennio’s black Ypsilon design, incorporating an air curtain for the first time.
A new front splitter, with lower, open slats directs air through the wheels, contributing to improved downforce and cooling. Black at the base of the windscreen increases the lightweight impression.
With a silhouette inspired by the Essenza SCV12, the new model features a revised rear, and a new vertical rear glass window, which gives improved visibility. The powerful rear incorporates a new bumper with optimised air inlet and new hexagonal exhaust pipes.
The fixed rear wing completes the unique lines of the Tecnica, and its aero design essentially contributes to a 35 per cent improvement in rear downforce compared to the Huracán EVO RWD, as well as ensuring no increase in drag.
New Damiso 20-inch diamond cut wheels, taking inspiration from the Lamborghini Vision GT, and riding on Bridgestone Potenza Sport tyres. The versatility of the Huracán Tecnica continues in its interior.
Inside, the height-adjustable sports seats immerse the pilot in his/her cockpit. Further options include a lightweight door design and harness seat belts for those heading more regularly to the circuit.
A redesigned, sophisticated HMI interface is exclusive to the Tecnica, with an easier to read large new ‘arc’ in front of the driver. The central console screen puts the fun-to-drive elements within reach, including the LDVI functions real-time display too.
Connectivity functions including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa are all on hand, and connected telemetry and on-board diaries of destinations and track times, connected to the UNICA app, are also available.
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.
Further exclusive options such as stitching designs and colours and the ‘Tecnica’ motif embroidered into seat bolsters can also be chosen. Local pricing and Australian specs will be available closer to its launch.
