Italian supercar-maker Lamborghini is building towards a future of electrified supercars, but not before it’s bidden farewell to its more traditional combustion-engined cars with all the usual flourish and drama. Enter, then, the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica review: an all-new derivative of the firm’s smaller mid-engined model which combines elements of both the outrageous Huracan STO and the regular Huracan Evo, and merges them into suitably bombastic but supposedly daily-usable sports car package.
The Huracan Tecnica takes the howling, atmospheric 632bhp V10 engine of the top-of-the-line STO model, and also that car’s rear-wheel drive- and four-wheel-steered chassis; but it mixes them with new and slightly less aggressive styling than the STO has, and with slightly less hardcore suspension tuning and tyre specification also. The result, claims Sant’Agata, is a supercar that can still really amaze on the circuit, but can also be enjoyed in a variety of road driving scenarios, and can also adapt itself to suit its driver’s particular tastes and requirements better than any Huracan before it.
