Lamborghini unleashes a new 640 hp monster – the Huracan Tecnica



Automobili Lamborghini has released another monster off its chain, the Huracan Tecnica, developed for both the road and track.

Powered by the same 5.2-litre V10 engine used in the Huracan STO, the Huracan Tecnica produces the same output as the STO, with 640 hp and 565 Nm. Gearshifts are made through a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, for a quick 3.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h. Top speed is 325 km/h.

Weighing just 1,379 kg, it’s the second lightest Huracan behind the Huracan STO. Lamborghini said the Huracan Tecnica emits sharper engine sound at higher revs while inside the cockpit offers improved acoustic comfort.

The Tecnica’s carbon-ceramic brakes are aided with cooling deflectors and brake caliper ducts. This helps direct airflow into the discs to maximise heat dissipation and reduce brake fluid temperatures and brake pedal travel.

The rear-wheel drive Tecnica features rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring, together with a modified Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) and specific suspension set-up. Depending on the drive mode selected – Strada, Sport, or Corsa – the systems mentioned above come together to provide a highly different driving experience.

In Strada, the rear-wheel-steering provides stability and manoeuvrability, while in Sport mode, maximum driving fun comes from the rear-wheel steering’s enhanced oversteer and with more slip allowed by the P-TCS system. Torque vectoring ensures the Tecnica’s agility and responsiveness in the hands of the driver. 

In Corsa mode, the Huracan Tecnica’s true colours are revealed; as it responds to every input by the driver with extreme precision. The powertrain is calibrated to provide optimised track-oriented throttle response and the fastest gearshifts.

The Huracan Tecnica’s revised design lends a stronger, predatory stance with a new bumper featuring the Terzo Millennio’s black Ypsilon design. The front bumper also incorporates an air curtain for the first time in a Huracan. The front hood is a full carbon fibre unit.

The rear section has also undergone some changes, with a new vertical rear glass window to improve visibility, along with a redesigned engine hood made of (you guessed it) carbon fiber. Similar to the front end, the rear incorporates a new bumper with air ducts and also houses the new hexagonal exhaust tips. 

The fixed rear wing contributes to 35% more downforce than the Huracan EVO RWD. The Huracan’s new shoes are 20-inch Damiso diamond cut wheels, inspired by the Lamborghini Vision GT and wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza Sport tyres. The brakes are 6-pot caliper units in the front, and 4-pot units at the back.

Inside is a redesigned, infotainment interface that’s exclusive to the Tecnica.  The driver’s instrument panel reduces colors and emphasizes readability in a large new ‘arc’ in front of the pilot. A new Alcantara interior has also been created exclusively for the Tecnica.
