2016 Lamborghini Huracan gets minor tech updates


The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 has been updated for its 2016 model year, bringing minimal changes that aim to improve upon the car’s efficiency, driveability and cabin luxury.

The first of these changes involve the Huracan’s 5.2 litre naturally-aspirated V10. No changes have been made to the engine’s output of 610 hp at 8,250 rpm and max torque of 560 Nm at 6,500 rpm. However, it now features a cylinder deactivation system to reduce the car’s carbon footprint.

When absolute performance is not needed, the system temporarily disables one of the engine’s cylinder banks, effectively making it run on five of the ten cylinders only. However, when the driver accelerates, the system switches back to ten-cylinder mode.

The Huracan benefits from this system with reduced fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions of 283 g/km (down from 290 g/km). Both the coupe and Spyder variants receive the new system as well.

Moving on, the car’s all-wheel drive system has been tweaked to “provide a neutral and even more improved driving behavior, particularly in Strada mode.”


Customers will also be able to choose from a wider colour scheme for the car. Inside, the interior receives additional leather trim on the door handles and upper parts of the centre console, while the air vents are now painted in matte black.

A Sensonum 390 watt audio system, with a ten-channel amplifier and ten loudspeakers has also been added to the options list. Other additions include a sports exhaust system finished in high gloss black, and a carbon-fibre engine compartment with accompanying LED lighting.

For added convenience, cruise control can be specified, along with a travel pack that tags on additional storage nets front and rear, an additional 12V socket and cupholders.

Additionally, Lamborghini Ad Personam, the brand’s customisation programme, now extends its service to cover the Huracan’s interior, as well as exterior options that include heritage colours and matte paints.

In Europe, the Huracan’s price remains unchanged at 169,500 euro, including taxes (RM796,539). For us here in Malaysia, the coupe variant will cost RM1.2 million (without taxes), while the Sypder will set you back a cool RM1.35 million (without taxes).

    Saw a few Lambo on the road, modded from the FLX.

    Proton, the power of modification.

    A whole bank of cylinder is deactivated and only 7g/km is saved?
    Might as well run on 10 cylinder and plant 5 trees to compensate.
