A direct rival to the Porsche 911 GT3, Lamborghini claims the Tecnica is the most driver-focused Huracan of the range.
The Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica, which was globally unveiled in April this year, will be launched in India on August 25, 2022. The Huracan Tecnica slots between the standard Huracan Evo and the track-focused STO version, both of which are already on sale here.
- Powered by 640hp, 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 engine
- Gets styling inspired by Sian hybrid hypercar
- Described by brand as a combination of Evo and STO
Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica India launch confirmed
The Huracan Tecnica is making it to India just five months after its global unveil, pretty remarkable for what is such a high-end supercar. In fact, Lamborghini has told Autocar India that customer orders have already been coming in for a few months now.
The carmaker has been on a success spree of late in India, having delivered the 200th unit of the Urus recently. Sharad Agarwal, head of Lamborghini India, recently told Autocar in an interview that the Urus has been driving sales for the company’s super-sports cars, which could explain the prompt interest in the Tecnica. Lamborghini India also secured a few allotments of the ultra-limited Aventador Ultimae recently.
Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica: styling, engine and performance
Lamborghini’s chief technical officer, Rouven Mohr, described the Tecnica as “more or less a combination of both [existing] cars”. The Huracan Tecnica brings together the usability of the standard Huracan Evo and the track-focused performance of the Huracan STO, which Lamborghini claims make it the most versatile of the range.
The mechanical underpinnings are the same as on the STO – 640hp, 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine sending power only to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. It, however, skips on the wild aerodynamics package and weight-saving regime of the more hardcore STO.
Instead, the Huracan Tecnica draws its design inspiration from the Sian hybrid hypercar, which in turn is based on the Aventador. The front and rear fascia get similar angular bodywork as the Sian, there’s a more prominent diffuser at the rear as compared to the Evo, and it also features a fixed rear spoiler.
It gets rear-wheel steering and carbon ceramic brakes as standard, along with a carbon-fibre bonnet. As for outright performance, 0-100kph is dispatched in a claimed 3.2sec, 200kph comes up in 9.1sec, and it has a top speed of 325kph.
Being a direct rival to the Porsche 911 GT3, Lamborghini says that driver involvement is the single most important element in the Tecnica’s character, with genuinely approachable on-the-limit handling being the priority. For more details on the Huracan Tecnica’s performance upgrades, click here.
In terms of price, the Huracan Tecnica will be positioned below the Huracan STO which was launched in India at Rs 4.99 crore (ex-showroom) earlier this year.
