Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica combines STO power and EVO usability
Until the Urus came around, the V10 Lamborghini Huracan was the brand’s cash cow. The supercar has spawned multiple iterations over its lifetime. After 8 years in production, and 11 different versions, here is Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica, a perfect blend of on-road and track usability.
If you are already confused by the Huracan lineup, let us give you a small refresh. The current Huracan range has the Huracan Evo, a road-focused version with easy usability. This is offered in both RWD and AWD flavours. Topping off the range is a limited-run Huracan STO, a track-ready mental machine. The Huracan Tecnica slots right in between these models, blending the STO’s lunatic power with the usability of Evo, with a dash of Lamborghini Sian’s design in the mix.
Speaking of design, the Huracan still does not look dated. The sharp lines still make it look as modern as it used to 8 years ago when it was launched. But with the Tecnica, they have spiced it up with a revised front end that not only improves aesthetics but also hones the car’s aerodynamics. There is a new front splitter that redirects air to cool the brakes and wheels. The view through the narrow rear window has been improved ever-so-slightly. At the rear, there is a fixed rear wing that improves rear downforce by 35 percent over the Evo RWD.
Under a new carbon-fibre hood, business goes on as usual, if you can classify the manic 630 hp output of the STO as “usual”. The Huracan Tecnica gets this same power, as well as 565 Nm of torque from the naturally-aspirated V10 engine. The power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which alters its shifting characteristics based on the drive modes chosen.
ANIMA drive modes are offered in the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica to tune the character of the vehicle as the user pleases. It tweaks a number of systems including traction control, torque vectoring, and rear-wheel steering to achieve this. The different drive modes include “Strada”, a mode for daily usage. To make matters a bit fiercer, “Sport” mode is offered. “Corsa” dial everything to eleven with the most aggressive setting.
To make the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica fit for road usage, the interior gets some creature comforts. This includes height-adjustable seats, a central screen, and connectivity options like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa.
Unlike the limited Huracan STO, the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica is going to be a regular member of the Lambo lineup. So, if you can afford it, there is no rush to gather the dirhams.
