To aid emissions and fuel economy, Lamborghini added cylinder deactivation technology to its V10. When the V10 isn’t screaming along, or under load, Lamborghini shuts down an entire bank of cylinders.
Aside from that, the only other major change will be a retuned all-wheel drive system that allows for a more neutral feel, and a better driving experience.
Fuel efficiency and ultra-expensive supercars don’t normally run hand in hand — but with stricter emissions standards, cars like the Lamborghini Huracán are getting starting to get a green treatment.
The interior will be more owner-friendly for 2016. Lamborghini says it has enlarged the color and trim selections significantly –- ostensibly to match Lamborghini’s loud exterior color pallate. New standard refinements are limited to the addition of leather to the door handles and new matte black air vents. Lamborghini’s customization program, Ad Personam, further adds custom options to the interior – allowing for heritage colors, matte paints and practically anything the owner would want.
Of course, there are more options – this is Lamborghini after all. An optional 390-watt amplifier feeds ten speakers with Lamborghini’s Sensonum audio system. The sports exhaust system can now be even further optioned to include matte black exhaust tips. The new LED engine compartment lighting can be combined with a transparent engine cover, allowing owners to show off that V10 at all hours of the day.
Lamborghini hasn’t released official pricing yet, but we’re assuming it won’t be far off last year’s sticker price of $241,945. Of course, that will only get you a pedestrian-spec “base” model. By the time you’re finished throwing on options and features, the number will be considerably higher.
