Lamborghini Unveils the All-New Huracán Tecnica

Sitting between the rear-wheel-drive EVO and the hardcore track-focused STO.

The Lamborghini Huracán has been around since 2014, serving as the marque’s “entry-level” supercar despite it packing a V10. Now, it has arrived as the Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica — sitting in between the hardcore track-ready STO and the rear-wheel-drive EVO.

In fact, the Tecnica doesn’t just sit in between these two models, it actually borrows from both of them. Lamborghini has put the STO’s naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 into the back of the Tecnica, but introduces the rear-wheel-drive and rear-steering system from the EVO, creating a car that offers 640 HP and 565 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The result is a 0-62 MPH time of just 3.2 seconds — impressive given its RWD credentials — while 124 MPH is hit in just 9.1 seconds, before the car stretches its leg all the way to a 202 MPH top speed.

These impressive figures are met with updated styling, aerodynamics, design details, and engineering tweaks that make the Tecnica one of the most complete road-meets-track cars in the Huracán family. For example, the proprietary Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata system has been added, allowing for feed-forward pre-control in virtual real-time that crafts the perfect balance of driving dynamics, constantly assessing the car’s behavior to keep it planted.

Likewise, modes ranging from STRADA to SPORT or CORSA enable alternative driving feels — each mode will encourage a different characteristic in the car’s wheelhouse. For STRADA, which is the everyday mode if you will, rear-wheel-steering helps with maneuverability and stability, while in SPORT the rear-wheel-steering encourages oversteer. CORSA awakens the car’s racing pedigree, with track-oriented throttle responses and the fastest gearshifts available at your disposal.

Elsewhere, we find new brakes and a revised exhaust system — here presented with a twin-set of hexagonal tips poking out of the rear end. Rear downforce is increased by 35% and drag is reduced by 20% in comparison to the EVO, while plenty of aero trickery at the front also appears. For example, Ypsilon designs on the front bumper create a diagonal cut for better airflow, but it also makes the car look lower and wider than the EVO. The hood is made entirely from carbon fiber, while a new front splitter, with lower, open slats directing air through the wheels, contributes to improved downforce and cooling, ultimately drawing inspiration from Lamborghini’s Essenza SCV12.

Lastly, you’ll find a redesigned and updated HMI system inside that’s exclusive to the Tecnica, presenting more easily readable dials for the driver and a center console that can deliver information about driving telemetry and onboard diaries of destinations and track time.

Speaking on the car, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann said: “The Tecnica ensures that the pilot enjoys the strongest connection to the car and asphalt, with the car’s potential always at his fingertips for ease of use in every driving mode and environment: in an era of virtual experiences it pays homage to technical purity and physical sensation. The Tecnica completes the Huracán line-up, sitting perfectly between the RWD and the track-focused STO, flawlessly presenting technology, performance and the Huracán’s V10 [naturally]-aspirated engine in a dramatically evolved design.”

No word has been said about the release date or the price, but expect it to be priced accordingly to where it sits in the product line. The EVO comes in at $213,104 USD, while the STO is $331,533 USD, so it should be priced in between.
