Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica 2023 UK first drive

Communicative, delicate steering loads up neatly on the way into bends, and once you’ve established some confidence, you can ever so slightly light up the rear axle on exit, so long as you’ve got the ESC off or in its more relaxed Sport setting. We’re not talking Ferrari 296 GTB levels of indulgence here, but the Tecnica is an extremely polished performer on technical roads, to the extent that you might just forget about the yowling, 631bhp V10 strapped to your back.

When it comes to details, the only major frustration is the pedal for the carbon-ceramic brakes. It’s overly assisted, biting too hard and high, and the ABS intervention is nervously keen, though furrowed B-roads and only lukewarm, nearsemi-slick Bridgestones don’t help.

Is this enough to prevent the Tecnica from being considered the apogee of the Huracán lineage? No, it isn’t. But something else is.

I don’t know why Lambo refuses to give the Huracán an Ego mode like the Aventador has, where you can mix and match settings for chassis and powertrain. Whatever the reason, the Tecnica suffers more than other Huracáns do for the absence of such a mode.

Only in softest Strada are its suspension rates palatable in the UK, yet Strada also removes the claws from the powertrain. They return to glorious effect in Sport mode, but then the damping is so unforgiving that to get enough load through the chassis and sand down the road surface, you’re courting outrageous speeds.
