The Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica feels like a bit of an end-of-an-era car. It’s one of the remaining hold-outs of natural aspiration, unassisted by hybrid technology, and the sound it makes is about as genuine as cars get these days.
That makes it rather special, says Henry Catchpole in his latest video in The Driver’s Seat series. Just how much longer will we be able to enjoy cars which offer those kind of characteristics?
The Tecnica doesn’t quite sit at the top of the Huracán tree – that place is held by the wild, bewinged STO – but it otherwise represents the ultimate expression of a line that started with 2003’s Lamborghini Gallardo, a car now two decades old.
Both Gallardo and Huracán have had their ups and downs, but just as Porsche has spent years honing its various 911s into class leaders and Ferrari develops its mid-engined V8 range with every iteration, the years have been good to the Huracán, which now has a driving experience every bit the match for its styling.
You don’t need us to tell you that though – really you’ll be much better off watching the video, and more importantly, listening to the note of that 5.2-litre V10. It really is, like Catchpole says, a musical instrument.
