The covers have just been taken off the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan. The 2016 model is the first Huracan to receive a number of refreshments since the supercar was launched in late-2014 with many of the coupe’s new features being borrowed from the Huracan Spyder.
Most significantly, the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan comes with cylinder deactivation technology just like the Huracan Spyder. When the engine isn’t being used to its fullest, five of the ten cylinders will be deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank. When the driver accelerates, all those five start back up instantaneously. Lamborghini claims that the system reduces CO2 emissions to 283 g/km.
Elsewhere for the 2016 model year, Lamborghini has tweaked the all-wheel drive system to provide improved handling, especially in the STRADA mode. Additionally, the Huracan’s optional sports exhaust system is now available worldwide.
Inside, a number of new colours and trims are offered with some of the changes including leather on the door handles and upper parts of the centre console as standard. The air vents are also painted in matte black as standard with Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program now offering an increased range of colours and matte paints.
Another upgrade is an improved audio system from Senonum with a ten-channel amplifier and ten speakers through the cabin. Final changes include LED lighting in the engine compartment and a travel pack with a number of extra nets, an extra 12V lighter and cupholders.
