2022 Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica walkaround at the 2022 NYIAS

Lamborghini is bridging the gap between the two core versions of the Huracán with a new variant called Tecnica. Unveiled ahead of the 2022 New York Auto Show, the newest addition to the line packs a 631-horsepower V10, rear-wheel-drive, and aerodynamic updates. Developed to be equally at home on the road and on the track, the Huracán Tecnica fills the space separating the EVO and the STO. "In an era of virtual experiences, [the Tecnica] pays homage to technical purity and physical sensation," explained company boss Stephan Winkelmann. Visually, it stands out from its siblings with a redesigned front end that gains Y-shaped accents inspired by the track-only Huracán EVO2, a redesigned splitter, and air curtains integrated into the bumper (a first for the Huracán). Lamborghini notes that it gave the engine lid a new look to improve visibility, and cool-looking hexagonal exhaust outlets add a finishing touch to the muscular design. One noteworthy addition to the exterior design is the fixed rear wing. It helped engineers increase rear downforce by 35%, yet it doesn't increase drag; in fact, the Tecnica has 20% less drag compared to the EVO. New underbody panels further hone the aerodynamic profile.

JOEL STOCKSDALE: This is the new Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica. This is a new version of Lamborghini's entry-level supercar, and it fits right between the EVO and the STO. What it really is basically an STO but made to be a little bit more mild, a little bit more street-friendly.

It features the same 631-horsepower V10 from the STO along with the same dual-clutch gearbox and the same brakes. And it's lightweight, but it's all in a package that's a bit more friendly for the street. It's got unique styling front and rear.

And one of the interesting aspects of it is the aerodynamics. It's got a new design underbody, as well as a new engine cover and rear wing. All of this allows it to make 35% more downforce. But it also has less drag than the EVO version that it sits above.

It will do 0 to 62 miles an hour, or 100 kilometers per hour, in 3.2 seconds. It's rear-wheel drive, which has been done to make it a more playful vehicle, as opposed to the all-wheel drive versions that are designed purely for ultimate high performance. Pricing is not available yet and neither is availability.

But it will not be a limited-production model. They will produce as many as there is demand for. Granted, that will be restricted by production speed, but there isn't a production cap to this model.
