Lamborghini has unveiled the Tecnica, a new sports car from the Huracan family. The new model sits between the Evo and the hardcore STO, according to Lamborghini, and has a mix of road and track performance.
Although the aero bits of the STO have been skipped, the Tecnica retains the same performance figures from the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 motor that produces 648 horsepower and 565 torque.
Lamborghini’s Huracan Tecnica is 30 HP more powerful than the Evo, hitting a ton in 3.2 seconds, 200 km/hr in 9.1 seconds, and reaching a top speed of 325 km/hr.
With a dry weight of 1379 kg, the Tecnica’s power to weight ratio is 470 HP/tonne. The car has what the brand calls Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) system with 3 driving modes – Strada, Sport, and Corsa.
The sports car features rear-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering with direct steering ratio to further enhance road manners at high speeds. There’s also a modified Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) and despite the presence of sophisticated electronics, Lamborghini maintains the Tecnica demands more driver involvement.
In another area where the Tecnica excels is aerodynamics. For example, the rear downforce is up by 35 percent and drag has been reduced by 20 percent when compared to the Evo thanks to a new front splitter with lower open slats directing air through the wheels.
The design has been revised with inward-facing front and muscular shoulders on a fully carbon-fibre hood. The bumper features Terzo Millennio’s black Ypsilon design incorporating an air curtain for the first time in a Huracan.
A new bumper at the rear has been designed to optimize air inlet and acoording to the Italian supercar maker, the overall silhouette has been inspired from the daylight opening line of Essenza SCV12.
Coming to the wheels and brakes, the Technica’s new carbon cermic brakes have specially designed cooling deflectors and calliper ducts that direct the airflow into the discs to maximise heat dissipation thereby reducing brake fluid temperatures. With these measures, the Tecnica’s stopping distance from 100 km/hr is 31.5 metres.
The sports car’s new Damiso 20-inch diamond-cut wheels are inspired by the Lamborghini Vision GT and they are slapped with Bridgestone Potenza Sport tyres.
