Lamborghini announced to be implementing some new minor changes to the 2016 Huracan LP 610-4, allowing the car to be more user-friendly and efficient on the road–all the sorts of things you don’t normally tend to expect from a Lamborghini.
Nonetheless, for starters, the Huracan’s naturally-aspirated 5.2L V10 now comes with cylinder deactivation, allowing for one cylinder bank to be deactivated in certain driving conditions to improve fuel economy. So essentially, the V10 shuts off half-way to become a 2.6L five-cylinder. It also helps to reduce the car’s CO2 emissions.
In addition to cylinder deactivation, Lamborghini added a new STRADA mode to the all-wheel drive system, to allow driver’s to push the car more to its limits without making things tricky. As an example, Lamborghini said the STRADA mode allows the all-wheel drive system to function differently to provide more neutral handling and “improved driving behavior.”
There are also some new options such as a high-end Sensonum audio system, a sports-tuned exhaust system, and LED engine bay lighting. Should buyers want to customize their Huracan to an even greater degree, like BMW’s Individual program or Land Rover’s SVO, Lamborghini now has the Ad Personam program, offering a huge range of interior personalization and customer colors for the exterior.
Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4: Model Year 2016 Product Updates
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 06 November 2015 — Following its successful market introduction in 2014 the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is now available to order with a number of updates. The new contents focus on efficiency, drivability and luxury and are already available with the 2016 model year.
The price of the Huracán LP 610-4 remains unchanged at 169.500 Euros + tax. As standard, both the Huracán coupé and newly-launched Spyder version include cylinder deactivation to improve engine efficiency; the first time this function is included in a naturally aspirated V10 engine. When full engine capacity is not required, five of the ten cylinders are temporarily deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank. When the driver accelerates, the system switches back instantaneously to ten-cylinder mode, while being virtually impossible to detect by the driver. This feature reduces fuel consumption and CO2 to 283 g/km
A fine-tuning of the electronically controlled 4WD system provides a neutral and even more improved driving behavior, particularly in STRADA mode.
The offer in the color an trim of the Huracán has been significantly enlarged. Interior refinements as standard include leather to door handles and the upper parts of the center console. Air vents are now painted in exclusive matt black.
Lamborghini Ad Personam, the brand’s customization program, has also added the availability of interior personalization, as well as exterior options including heritage colors and matt paints. The full Ad Personam program provides for owners wishing to further customize their cars to their unique personal tastes.
The options program has been further extended. New options available include Lamborghini’s Sensonum audio system. The system delivers 390Watts RMS, with a ten-channel amplifier and a range of ten loudspeakers in hexagonal-shaped grilles and the exclusive Sensonum badge.
Lamborghini’s optional sports exhaust system, which can be specified with astyle package for high gloss black tailpipes, is now available in all markets worldwide.
New LED lighting in the engine compartment can be combined with the optional transparent engine bonnet and carbon fiber engine compartment. Cruise Control can be specified, and a travel pack provides additional storage nets front and rear, an additional 12V lighter and cupholders.
