2021 was Lamborghini’s best year ever, and you’ll be glad to know that the Italian automaker is using its profits to create more spectacular supercars. We’ve known that new models were planned for this year since Lamborghini confirmed it in January, and we’ve had our spy photographers keep a watchful eye over developments as they’ve progressed over the past few months. Last week, our guesswork over when one of these new models would be revealed came to an end as the Sant’Agata-based brand released a teaser to whet our appetites, and now the great day of the international reveal has arrived. Say hello to the magnificent Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica.
We won’t keep you waiting, so here are the headline numbers. 631 horsepower and 416 lb-ft of torque are figures that may sound familiar to you, and they should since they come from the 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 that is borrowed from the Huracan STO and connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Like the STO, the Tecnica drives the rear axle only, yet it manages 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds. Top speed is pegged at 202 mph. Thanks to a recalibrated LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) drive mode system, a special suspension setup, rear-wheel steering, and “innovative brake cooling improvements,” this is both a hardcore Huracan you can enjoy at the limit on the track and a laidback Lamborghini you can simply cruise in. In fact, Lamborghini calls this “the perfect fun-to-drive Huracan”. Company CEO Stephan Winkelmann says that this “pays homage to technical purity and physical sensation” and “completes the Huracan lineup, sitting perfectly between the [602-hp Huracan Evo] RWD and the track-focused STO” versions of the Huracan.
Finally, let’s get onto customization. Eight standard exterior colors are offered, but more than 200 more are available through the Ad Personam program. There’s also a new interior trim in Alcantara specifically for Tecnica, and options like various stitching designs and colors, as well as options for the and the ‘Tenica’ motif on the bolsters. It’s a pity that Lambo hasn’t told us the names of these colors or shown us more of them, but this launch green is pretty special in its own right.
Pricing has not yet been revealed, but with the Huracan STO commanding an asking price of around $330,000, we don’t expect this – as one of the last naturally aspirated, V10-powered Lamborghinis ever – to be more affordable. For those who have the money but find the extreme, race-inspired nature of the STO too much, the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica is the answer. We wish we had enough cash to ask ourselves which to buy, but we doubt it’ll be long before orders are full.
