Electrified Lamborghinis are on their way. We were told as much by Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini (as you can read here). However, there are a few more pure ICE versions on the cards. One of them broke cover today. Say hello to the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica.
Near the end
The Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica was teased by the company a few days ago. This is reportedly the penultimate Huracan derivative that the automaker will release. The very last is said to be a more rugged, off-roader of sorts. A test mule of the ‘Sterrato’ was recently spied testing in the Arctic Circle – see more here.
Son of Sian
The Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica is a slightly less hard-core variant than the Huracan STO. The newcomer fills a similar role to the Aventador Ultimae. What this means is that Tecnica uses the technology found in more aggressive derivatives, but in a more user-friendly package. As a result it, sits between the RWD Huracan Evo and track focused STO.
A redesigned front bumper is the most obvious change on the Tecnica. The revised visage seems to take inspiration from the Aventador-based Sian FKP37 . There is also a fixed rear wing in place. Although it is nowhere near as large that found on an STO. A mass-saving plan includes plenty of carbon-fibre, centre-lock wheels and carbon-ceramic brakes.
The same 5,2-litre V10 that is found across the Huracan range is used in the Tecnica. Power is quoted as 470 kW along with 565 N.m. Drive is transmitted through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Huracan Tecnica differs from most of its siblings in that power is sent exclusively to the rear wheels. Lamborghini says the new charge can accelerate from 0–100 km/h in 3,2 seconds from 0–200 in 9,1 and can do 325 km/h flat out.
From the boss
“The Huracán Tecnica condenses Lamborghini’s design and engineering expertise to create the perfect fun-to-drive Huracán, as compelling when driving to the race circuit as it is on the street itself,” says Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann.
“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 aspirated engine in a dramatically evolved design.”
