The Huracan Tecnica is launched today and its base price is RM1.05mil as opposed to the RM1.48mil for the STO. Delivery will take up to nine months after booking and allocation is confirmed.
According to Lamborghini, the new Huracan variant is meant for "pilots seeking driving fun and lifestyle perfection on both road and track."
With the Tecnica, Lamborghini sought to create a happy compromise of two model variants. It combines the rear-wheel drive version of the Huracán Coupé with a 5.2-litre V10 naturally aspirated engine from the STO racing version.
Lamborghini says it has revised the aerodynamics, reduced drag and increased downforce to create a car that is slotted between a racing car and a road sports car for heightened performance, stability and ease of use, particularly on a circuit.
The lightweight Tecnica's recalibrated LDVI system and distinctly tuned driving modes with specific suspension set-up, rear-wheel direct steering, and innovative brake cooling improvements allow the driver to experience a supercar that's adept for road and track.
At the launch, over 100 customers and invited guests had the opportunity to see, hear, and feel the latest Huracan.
They also had the chance to explore the range of customisation options offered by the Ad Personam program. From paint to rims, custom
stitching, carbon fibre elements, Ad Personam offers the tools to create truly unique Lamborghini vehicles.
"We have presented a wide range of Lamborghini models to the Malaysian market, within just five months of Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur's grand opening in March this year," said Lamborghini region director for the Asia Pacific Francesco Scardaoni.
"Today, we are again proud to unveil the Huracan Tecnica — the latest member of the Huracan range — in the flesh to our discerning clients and media in Malaysia. The Huracan Tecnica is a versatile character that provides the purest Lamborghini driving experience, combined with the freedom of everyday use: a bridge between past and future, and across lifestyle, performance, road, and track."
The Huracan Tecnica takes the 5.2-litre V10 powerplant outputting the same 640hp power as its STO stablematem(compared with 610hp from Huracan EVO), producing 565 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm for exhilarating yet comfortable everyday driving with highly responsive maximum power and torque when demanded.
The Tecnica accelerates from standstill to 100kph in 3.2 seconds and reaches up to 325kph at full throttle.
In contrast, the STO stats is a 0-100kph sprint time of 3s and a top speed of 310kph.
With a dry weight of 1,379 kg, the Tecnica delivers a weight-to-power ratio of 2.15 kg/CV.
The uprated power is matched by an enhanced, sharper engine sound at higher revs while inside the cockpit the Tecnica provides improved acoustic comfort.
This Huracan has at its heart the LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) system, which controls every aspect of the car's dynamic behaviour by integrating vehicle systems and set-up to deliver feed-forward pre-control in virtual real-time, for optimal driving dynamics.
The rear-wheel drive Tecnica incorporates rear-wheel steering with direct steering ratio and torque vectoring, together with a modified Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) and specific suspension set-up for the Tecnica.
Depending on the drive mode selected - STRADA, SPORT or CORSA - every dynamic system is calibrated on the Tecnica to provide a highly
differentiated response to each environment.
In STRADA, the rear-wheel-steering provides stability and manoeuvrability, complemented by the torque vectoring and P-TCS.
The engine and gearbox are both tuned for comfortable everyday driving in every setting.
In SPORT mode, maximum driving fun comes from the rear-wheel steering's enhanced oversteer and the enhanced slip threshold of the P-TCS, while torque vectoring ensures the Tecnica's agility and responsiveness in the hands of the driver.
The highly responsive powertrain sparks at the touch of the accelerator and the seven-speed gearbox provides a tactile and emotive shift.
In CORSA mode, the car is at its sportiest, responding to the driver's
input with extreme precision, with the naturally aspirated Lamborghini engine's roar a reminder of the car's track talents.
The powertrain is calibrated to provide optimised track-oriented throttle response and the fastest gearshifts, with the Tecnica demonstrating
maximum precision and agility from all systems via the LDVI, including maximum lateral and longitudinal grip from the torque vectoring and P-TCS respectively.
The new brake cooling management, inspired by track-based
Lamborghini experience, promises consistent braking performance on both road and track.
The Tecnica's carbon ceramic brakes adopt specifically designed cooling deflectors and calliper ducts, directing the airflow into the discs to maximise heat dissipation and reduce brake fluid temperatures and brake pedal elongation: the reduction in disc temperatures also supports
brake pad consumption.
The car is characterised by aerodynamic efficiency and lightweight engineering while retaining a distinct elegance, making it clearly distinguishable from its Huracan stablemates.
A revised design lends the Tecnica a stronger, predatory stance: a powerful, inward-facing front with muscular shoulders meets a lightweight, fully carbon fibre hood.
A new bumper featuring the Terzo Millennio's black Ypsilon design, incorporates an air curtain for the first time in a Huracan.
A new front splitter, with lower, open slats directing air through the wheels, contributes to improved downforce and cooling. Black at the base of the windscreen increases the lightweight impression.
The profile of the car also sets it apart from the Huracan family: at 6.1 cm longer than the Huracan EVO it is the same height and width but appears lower and broader, with a silhouette inspired by the Essenza SCV12.
The black of the front Ypsilon feature continues along the flank of the car to the side air intakes, while the body-colour roof can also be painted black as an option.
At the rear, there's a new vertical rear glass window that gives improved visibility, while a redesigned engine hood in lightweight carbon fibre celebrates the V10 heart of the Tecnica.
The rear incorporates a new bumper with optimised air inlet; diffuser painted in body colour or optional black; and combines new hexagonal exhaust pipes that deliver the enhanced fanfare from the Tecnica's powertrain.
While aesthetically the fixed rear wing completes the unique lines of the Tecnica, its aero design also contributes to the 35% improvement in rear downforce compared to the Huracan EVO RWD, as well as ensuring no increase in drag: in fact, drag is reduced by 20%, improving aero
balance and supporting stability during braking and turning speed.
The Tecnica's underbody is also optimised with new aero deflectors for improved aerodynamic efficiency.
New Damiso 20" diamond cut wheels, taking inspiration from the Lamborghini Vision GT, sport a hexagonal design and are fitted with Bridgestone Potenza Sport tyres.
The versatility of the Huracan Tecnica continues in its interior as well as in the extensive customisation options available.
The height-adjustable sports seats immerse the pilot in his cockpit. Further options include a lightweight door design; a rear arch and wheel bolts in lightweight titanium; and harness seat belts for those heading more regularly to the circuit.
A redesigned HMI interface is exclusive to the Tecnica. The driver's instrument panel reduces colours and emphasises readability in a large new "arc" in front of the pilot.
The central console screen puts the fun-to-drive elements at the disposal of the cockpit's occupants, including the LDVI functions in real-time display, as well as all connectivity functions including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa.
Inspired by the STO, the HMI includes connected telemetry and on-board diaries of destinations and track times, connected to the UNICA app.
Standard and optional colour and trim choices lend themselves to both luxury-oriented and more sporty specifications.
Together with eight standard exterior colours, more than 200 additional paint options are available through the Ad Personam program, as well as a new interior trim in Alcantara specifically for Tecnica, and further exclusive options such as stitching designs and colours and the "Tecnica" motif embroidered into seat bolsters.
Beyond the Tecnica's exclusive options, Lamborghini's Ad Personam department offers the potential for clients to customise their Huracan Tecnica with virtually unlimited colour and trim possibilities.
