Lamborghini is edging closer to building a hybrid Huracan, making the V10-powered Tecnica one of the last of its kind
With the beating V10 heart of the Huracan STO, rear wheel steering and rear-wheel drive, the new Huracan Tecnica will start from $440,900 before on-road costs.
With the Evo and STO variants of the Huracan sold out, it leaves the Tecnica as one of the last chances for those with the coin to experience the exotic Italian supercar. However, if you want a Tecnica in Australia now, you’ll find yourself on a wait list.
First deliveries for the Huracan Tecnica will commence in the first half of 2023 here in Australia.
The Tecnica sits between the Evo and the STO in the Huracan range as a half-way proposition with both on road and track characteristics.
The Tecnica gains the same drivetrain as its track-honed STO relative, meaning that outputs sit at 470kW/565Nm thanks to a naturally-aspirated rear-mounted 5.2-litre V10 engine.
The big hand-built engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. For the lovers of Lamborghinis, the exhaust note has been enhanced, too, with the noise now louder in the higher rpms.
Lamborghini claims that the Huracan Tecnica is capable of a 3.2 second 0-100km/h sprint and has a top speed of 325km/h.
The Italian supercar maker has tweaked the aerodynamics of the Huracan for the Tecnica variant, increasing downforce by 35 percent and reducing drag by 20 percent when compared to the rear-wheel drive Huracan Evo.
Rear-wheel steering has also been added to the Tecnica that “provides stability and maneuverability”, says Lamborghini.
Lamborghini Australia stated that by the end of 2024, every model in its range will be electrified in some way, meaning that the days of the naturally-aspirated V10 are most definitely coming to an end. The same goes for the mighty V12 engine from the Aventador, too.
Various sources globally, including Motortrend, have indicated that the Huracan model will bow out in the next two years and will be replaced with a new two-door supercar that will be powered by a hybrid V8 engine, instead.
This could be the V8 engine currently used in the Lamborghini Urus, a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged unit currently shared with the Audi RSQ8 and Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, however nothing has been confirmed yet.
By the second half of the decade, Lamborghini expects its first fully electric Lamborghini as the brand works to halve its carbon emissions.
The italian automaker will invest over 1.5 billion euros into electrification by 2024 which Lamborghini claims is the biggest investment in its history.
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
