Lamborghini Updates Huracan LP610-4 For MY2016

MY2016 brings some updates for the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4, bringing it in line with its recently revealed Spyder counterpart.

The new features focus on improving the driving manners, the efficiency and the luxury of Lamborghini’s entry-level supercar. These include the cylinder-deactivation function which debuted in the Spyder, which switches off one cylinder bank on lighter throttle load, improving the fuel consumption and the CO2 emissions of the 5.2-litre V10 engine. The latter are rated now to 283g/km, down from 290g/km.

The next update concerns the all-wheel drive system which has been fine-tuned to provide ‘a neutral and even more improved driving behavior, particularly in Strada mode’. Perhaps this is Lamborghini’s way to deal with the understeer tendency that’s been repeatedly reported by the media.

Other updates include a wider range of colors and trims. The upper parts of the center console and the door handles now are trimmed in leather as standard while the air vents are painted in a matt black finish.

The Ad Personam, Lamborghini’s personalisation program now offers the choice to customize the cabin too as well as adding more exclusive paint finishes for the exterior, including heritage and matt paint colors. A new Sensonum audio system is also added in the options list, featuring 390Watts and a ten-channel amplifier for the ten speakers.

There are no visual changes over the previous model as this is a light update and not a full-on facelift. The optional sports exhaust system can now be ordered with high gloss black tailpipes while new LED lighting in the engine compartment can be combined with the optional transparent engine cover.

The MY2016 Lamborghini Huracan is expected to make its first appearance at the LA Auto Show.
