Just a few months after unveiling the track-focused STO, the Italian automaker revealed yet another special Huracán, which they say caters to those who are seeking driving fun and lifestyle perfection on both road and track. According to Automobili Lamborghini, the Tecnica’s moniker embodies the advanced evolution of the Huracán technical prowess and, instantly distinguishable, is as much a Huracán innovation externally as it is under the hood, with its new looks accenting improved aerodynamics for heightened performance, stability and ease of use, particularly on a circuit.
Powering the Tecnica is a Huracán EVO sourced 5.2-litre V10 engine mated to a 7-speed gearbox. The Huracán Tecnica develops 463kW (630hp) and 565 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. Lamborghini claims the rear-wheel drive Huracán Tecnica will sprint from 0 to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds.
With a dry weight of 1,379 kg, the Tecnica delivers a weight-to-power ratio of 2.15 kg/CV. According to Lamborghini, the uprated power is matched by an enhanced, sharper engine sound at higher revs while inside the cockpit the Tecnica provides improved acoustic comfort. This Huracán has at its heart the LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) system, which is said to control every aspect of the car’s dynamic behaviour by integrating vehicle systems and set-up to deliver feed-forward pre-control in virtual real-time, for perfect driving dynamics.
It also incorporates rear-wheel steering with direct steering ratio and torque vectoring, together with a modified Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) and specific suspension set-up for the Tecnica. Depending on the drive mode selected – Strada, Sport or Corsa – every dynamic system is calibrated on the Tecnica to provide a highly differentiated response to each environment.
Outside, the Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica sports a significant and sophisticated design revision thanks to a new front bumper featuring the Terzo Millennio’s black Ypsilon design and 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 profile of the Tecnica also sets it apart from the Huracán family: at 6.1 cm longer than the Huracán EVO it is the same height and width but appears lower and broader, with a silhouette inspired by the daylight opening line from the Essenza SCV12. It’s fitted with new Damiso 20-inch diamond cut wheels wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza Sport tires.
The reshape of the rear, including a new vertical rear glass window, incorporates a new bumper with optimized air inlet; diffuser painted in body color or optional black; and combines new hexagonal exhaust pipes that deliver the enhanced fanfare from the Tecnica’s powertrain.
