Next-Generation RWD V10 Previewed at the Lamborghini Lounge NYC and Presented at the New York International Auto Show
The newest addition to the Huracán range, the Huracán Tecnica, made its North American premiere this week in New York City at a private event leading up to the long-awaited return of the New York International Auto Show.
Presented at the Lamborghini Lounge NYC, located in the heart of the Chelsea Arts District, the Huracán Tecnica captivated guests at an exclusive evening event on April 12th. Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, welcomed long-time Lamborghini customers, VIPs and media together with Rouven Mohr, Chief Technical Officer, Mitja Borkert, Head of Design, and Federico Foschini, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer.
“It was a special moment for me to be back in New York City unveiling our new masterpiece to customers and friends of the brand in our Lamborghini Lounge, showcasing our brand’s ethos and design DNA,” said Stephan Winkelmann. “The Huracán Tecnica delivers the advanced evolution of the Huracan’s technical prowess with outstanding aerodynamics for heightened performance, stability and ease of use. These qualities make it the ideal, versatile car to drive both on the road and the track. In 2022, as we celebrate the internal combustion engine, the dramatically evolved design of the Huracán Tecnica delivers the physical sensation and extreme emotion that fans of the brand have come to expect from Lamborghini.”
The Huracán Tecnica takes its engine from the Huracán STO and, while producing 640 CV — an increase of 30 CV over the Huracán EVO rear-wheel drive (RWD) — the powertrain also delivers 565 Nm of torque at maximum 6,500 rpm and improved acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. The lightweight Tecnica’s recalibrated LDVI system and distinctly tuned driving modes with specific suspension set-up, rear-wheel direct steering, and innovative brake cooling improvements allow the driver to experience the perfect Huracán for every occasion: the Huracán Tecnica exploits its talents to deliver the best of both worlds – a poignantly versatile super sports for road and track.
The arrival of the Huracán Tecnica marks a historic start to the year in which Lamborghini announced record breaking results for 2021 in terms of sales, turnover and profitability. The United States remains the largest single market globally with a total of 2,472 vehicles delivered in 2021, an increase of 11% over 2020.
The new Huracán Tecnica will be on display at the New York International Auto Show for public viewing from April 15th to the 24th.
