2022 Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica launched in India for ₹4.04 crore
Lamborghini has launched the Huracan Tecnica, the latest iteration of its V10 supercar in India, with prices starting at ₹4.04 crore (ex-showroom). The Tecnica sits between the Evo and STO in the Huracan line-up, offering a blend between the road-biased intentions of the former, and the track focus of the latter. It gets the engine from the STO, along with a chassis that is more suited to the road, tweaked aerodynamics and differentiated styling from both models.
2022 Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica drivetrain
Behind the driver sits the same turned-up-to-11 engine from the Huracan STO — it puts out 640ps and 565Nm. This is a nat-asp engine that revs all the way past 8000rpm and is an absolutely mental piece of engineering. Much like the STO, the Tecnica is only available with RWD, it gets a 7-speed DCT and all of this translates to expectedly mad performance — 0-100kmph in 3.2 seconds, 0-200kmph in 9.1 seconds and a claimed top speed of 325kmph.
2022 Lamborghini Huracan chassis and electronics
The Tecnica gets a double wishbone fully independent suspension, with spring rates and dampers designed specifically for the Tecnica’s middle-of-the-road approach. There’s rear-wheel steer as standard and the steering adjusts itself depending on the drive modes the car is in. In terms of the braking set up, the Tecnica gets carbon ceramics as standard.
There are plenty of electronics to help extract the most from this car — the LDVI, or Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integra) is essentially the car’s brain that understands what the car is doing dynamically and sets it up to provide the most engaging driving experience. It also has drive modes that affect both the drivetrain and chassis — Strada for relaxed road use, Sport for more exciting on-road performance and handling and Corsa that makes both the drivetrain and chassis as sharp as possible. The torque vectoring and traction control systems allow for the maximum lateral grip in this drive mode, allowing you to set those lap times you want.
2022 Lamborghini Huracan styling and aerodynamics
The Tecnica has the most radical styling of a Huracan yet, with plenty of that having to do with the updated aerodynamics of the car. At the front, the most obvious change is to the bumper which now features the Ypsilon elements seen on the Sian first, which incorporates an air curtain — a first for the Huracan. The front splitter is lower and is more effective at producing downforce and cooling. The Tecnica is 61mm longer than the Evo and that changes its stance, making it look lower and more menacing. The rear has been revised too, with new haunches over the rear wheels, a new rear glass and a carbon fibre engine cover. The rear has a new bumper and diffuser as well. The Tecnica gets a fixed rear wing that improves downforce by 35 per cent over the Evo, while reducing drag by 20 per cent.
The Huracan Tecnica will very likely be the last production V10 Huracan before Lambo goes ahead its electrification plans. There may be special editions with this engine — cars like the recently teased Sterrato, but these will be very limited in number. The Tecnica is also the star of the cover of evo India’s August 2022 issue — get your copy and read the full story today!
