Lamborghini clearly intends to delay the bid farewell of its 5.2-litre, naturally-aspirated V10 engine that has ignited the hearts of petrolheads with long-lasting emotions.Wish! I would experience those emotions someday soon. Today, Lamborghini has launched the last-of-its-kind Huracan version running on pure ICE in India at Rs 4.04 crores (ex-showroom,India). The Huracan Tecnica slots in between road-focused Evo and track-focused STO. Huracan STO was launched in India last year at Rs 5 crore. Ed Ramesh Somani drove the Lamborghini Huracan STO at the BIC, and he was completely thrilled with the experience. Please click here to read his affair with the STO.
The Huracan Tecnica gets a 5.2-litre V10, naturally-aspirated engine found in the Huracan STO. It’s the same engine that is found in Huracan Evo that makes 630 hp. However, the torque has been brought down to 565 Nm from the usual 600 Nm due to the car being solely RWD. The engine comes mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The supercar weighs around 1379kg and goes 0-100kmph in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 325kmph. The Tecnica also generates 35 per cent more downforce than the standard Huracan Evo.
The front and rear architectures were restructured with sharper lines to improve aerodynamics. The chassis is made up of hybrid materials – aluminum and carbon fiber. Tecnica gets specific traction-control management that prioritizes sportiness while providing confident, visceral feedback to aid stability. Lamborghini claims that compared to a standard TCS, the proactive management of torque improves the effectiveness on low-grip surfaces in Strada mode, maximizes the “fun to drive” element in Sport mode, and enhances vehicle traction and sharpness at corner exit in Corsa mode. Like the Huracan STO, Tecnica also gets the rear wheel steering function that manages the rear steering axle through two electromechanical actuators, improving agility at low speeds and providing balanced control at high speeds.
The Huracan Tecnica will go up against the recently launched Porsche 911 GT3 RS, which starts at around Rs 3.25* crore. Also, it competes against McLaren 720S and Ferrari F8 Tributo, whose pricing starts at Rs 4.65* crores and 4.02* crore, respectively. What are you thinking now? Wait, please don’t ask for a comparison test.
