Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica Is A Road-Going Track Weapon
This baby Raging Bull is designed and engineered for the best of both worlds
The Lamborghini Huracan will soon reach the end of its production run, with a hybrid replacement set to take its place sometime in 2024. However, before that happens, Lamborghini is releasing yet another edition of the V10-powered supercar called the Huracan Tecnica.
Built to deliver the best performance on both public roads and track, the Huracan Tecnica adopts the Huracan STO‘s 5.2-litre V10 mill and rear-wheel drive layout. With 640 PS and 565 Nm, which is sent to the ground via a seven-speed gearbox, the Tecnica accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds (two tenths slower than the STO) and reaches a top speed of 325 km/h.
Its driving dynamics and other parameters are governed by the LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) system. There are three modes to choose from, namely Strada, Sport and Corsa. Strada is street, so the engine and gearbox are in their most moderate setting to provide stability and manoeuvrability.
Sport induces oversteer from the rear-wheel steering, enhances slip threshold of the Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) and increases responsiveness of the powertrain for maximum driving fun. In Corsa, everything is in their highest setting to help the driver capture their best lap times on the track.
As for braking, the Huracan Tecnica is equipped with carbon ceramic brakes with specifically designed cooling deflectors and calliper ducts that help maximise heat dissipation and reduce brake fluid temperatures by directing the airflow right into the discs.
For detailed information on its aerodynamics and interior, check out the following press release:
Aerodynamic inspired design
The Huracán Tecnica sports a significant and sophisticated design revision, impressing its dual personality of an iconic super sports lifestyle and track-oriented car from every angle. Aerodynamic efficiency and lightweight engineering energize every element while retaining a distinct elegance, with the Tecnica clearly distinguishable from its Huracán stablemates.
A revised design lends the Tecnica a stronger, predatory stance: a powerful, inward-facing front with muscular shoulders meets a lightweight, fully carbon fiber hood. A new bumper featuring 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 profile of the car 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. The black of the front Ypsilon feature continues along the flank of the car to the side air intakes, emphasizing the car’s dynamic vitality, while the body-color roof can also be painted black as an option.
The clear, sculptural architecture that defines a Lamborghini is as evident in the revised rear. The reshape of the rear, including a new vertical rear glass window gives improved visibility, while a redesigned engine hood in lightweight carbon fiber celebrates the V10 heart of the Tecnica. The powerful rear 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.
While aesthetically the fixed rear wing completes the unique lines of the Tecnica, its aero design essentially contributes to the 35% improvement in rear downforce compared to the Huracán EVO RWD, as well as ensuring no increase in drag: in fact, drag is reduced by 20%, improving aero balance and supporting stability during braking and turning speed. The Tecnica’s underbody is also optimized with new aero deflectors for improved aerodynamic efficiency.
New Damiso 20” diamond cut wheels, taking inspiration from the Lamborghini Vision GT, sport a hexagonal design and are fitted with Bridgestone Potenza Sport tires.
Created for the driver
The versatility of the Huracán Tecnica continues in its interior as well as in the extensive customization options available: the Huracán Tecnica delivers what the driver wants, in the way it looks, in its dynamic set-up and driver feed-back, in its connectivity but most importantly in its capabilities on both road and track.
Inside, the height-adjustable sports seats immerse the pilot in his cockpit. Further options include a 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 colors and emphasizes readability in a large new ‘arc’ in front of the pilot. The central console screen puts the fun-to-drive elements at the disposal of the cockpit’s occupants, including the LDVI functions in real-time display, as well as all connectivity functions including 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, as well as a new interior trim in Alcantara specifically for Tecnica, and further exclusive options such as stitching designs and colors and the ‘Tecnica’ motif embroidered into seat bolsters.
Beyond the Tecnica’s exclusive options, Lamborghini’s Ad Personam department offers the potential for clients to customize their Huracán Tecnica with virtually unlimited color and trim possibilities.
