Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica Offers a Mix of Road and Track with RWD and 631 HP

The Huracan Tecnica will be a driver-focused supercar with an RWD layout and a screaming N/A 5.2-liter V10 producing 631 hp.

The Italian supercar manufacturer first launched the Huracan in 2014 as a successor to the legendary Gallardo. Naturally, the predecessor generated a massive cult following over the years, which proved to be a challenge for the Huracan to take over the N/A V10 throne. In particular, critics argued that the successor seemed tame, underwhelming, and almost uncharacteristic for a Lambo.

Since then, Lamborghini has been cranking up various personas of the Huracan to make it more appealing, with the likes of the Performante, Spyder, EVO, EVO RWD, and the track-derived STO. However, the brand decided to build another persona that combined the best aspects of a Lambo — high-performance N/A engine (V10/V12), striking proportions, and necessary comforts on the go.

As per Lamborghini, the all-new Huracan Tecnica stitched together the performance of the STO, RWD from the EVO, and a customizable infotainment system into an all-encompassing package. Even from a visual standpoint, the Tecnica looks significantly different from its other siblings, with interesting bits throughout. For instance, the front fascia looks quite aggressive with larger Y-shaped air intakes, Aventador-S styled lower winglets, hexagonal exhaust outlets, and a carbon-fiber splitter.

Meanwhile, the Huracan Tecnica borrows some inspiration from the ultimate Essenza SCV12, pulling in air from the revamped C-pillar and the side-bottom air intakes towards the engine bay. Other bespoke touches include new 20-inch hexagonal rims, a flat spoiler, and a rear diffuser. Overall, all these changes help improve downforce by 35% over the EVO RWD while reducing drag by 20%!

Equipment-wise, the Huracan Tecnica is bestowed with the same powertrain as the STO, featuring the almighty 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 that pumps out 631 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque. It is hooked to a 7-speed DCT with razor-sharp response times. So, with a lesser drag and a more powerful setup than the EVO RWD, the supercar can sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.2 secs and go flat-out at 205 mph.

In addition, it also features LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Velocity Integrale), which controls almost every aspect of the dynamic systems and optimizes performance to the maximum, be it track or road. The braking system also receives better cooling, providing better track performance.

But Lambo also focused on improving the driving experience. Hence, the Tecnica will sound better at high revs than previous Huracan derivatives, which already sounded like heaven.

Furthermore, the Huracan Tecnica’s interior received much attention with carbon fiber seats, green accents, and an exclusive Alcantara lining with laser-etched patterns. Last but not least, Lamborghini retained the airplane-style buttons, switches, and a center-mounted infotainment touchscreen.

The Huracan Tecnica will sit between the EVO RWD and the STO and cost $245,295 in the US.
