In a world increasingly dominated by electric vehicles (EVs), a rare opportunity arose to experience the untamed symphony of Lamborghini’s last naturally aspirated supercar, the Huracan Tecnica. During a recent adventure in the picturesque landscapes of Italy, we had the privilege of not only driving the Huracan Tecnica but also the Urus Performante and Urus S, reminding us of the visceral thrill of combustion engines that future generations might never know.

The Last of Its Kind: Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica

Our journey commenced with the awe-inspiring Huracan Tecnica, a standout in the Huracan lineup. What sets it apart is its rear-wheel-drive configuration, a rarity in the all-wheel-drive-dominated supercar realm. This spirited beast, boasting a staggering 631 horsepower, eagerly responds to the slightest nudge of the accelerator, willingly embracing the art of going sideways through corners. Surprisingly, it’s not a handful to handle; instead, it exhibits remarkable forgiveness, always encouraging drivers to explore their limits.

With minimal body roll, responsive brakes, nimble steering, a precision-engineered chassis, and grippy tires, the Tecnica transforms any fast, winding road into a playground of exhilaration. Notably, this Italian masterpiece retains its comfort even on less-than-ideal road surfaces. Our drive to the Modena hills involved navigating through Bologna’s traffic and encountering a fair share of potholes. Astonishingly, the Huracan Tecnica gracefully conquered these challenges without scraping its underbelly. Combine this with the intoxicating exhaust note in Corsa mode, and it’s easy to see why it was the most coveted car among our group of Indian journalists. Could it be an everyday supercar? Perhaps. Is it irresistibly desirable? Undoubtedly!

The Urus has become Lamborghini’s global best-seller, accounting for more than half of the brand’s sales in India. While some skeptics question its ability to deliver an authentic Lamborghini driving experience, our encounter with the Urus Performante laid those doubts to rest. The Urus S, although a fast and exciting SUV, leans more toward luxury with its speed capabilities.

The Urus Performante, on the other hand, resides in a league of its own within the SUV category. It defies all preconceived notions of SUV performance. Forget any SUV-like expectations when you step into this wild machine. From its lightning-fast acceleration to its spine-tingling exhaust note, agile cornering, and abrupt stops facilitated by razor-sharp brakes, every aspect feels like you’re piloting a sports car. The elevated seating position might feel peculiar, but kudos to Lamborghini’s engineers for crafting an SUV that defies the laws of physics with such ease. Notably, the Urus Performante is not just a beast on the road; it’s also surprisingly comfortable and practical for daily use. It’s no wonder the world swiftly embraced the Urus.
