Lamborghini PH Joins In Brand's 60th Anniversary Celebration

As celebrations for the 60th anniversary of Automobili Lamborghini continue around the world, Lamborghini Club Philippines on October 1 gathered for the “Bull Run”, and witnessed the unveiling of commemorative artworks specially produced for the occasion. Also presented during the event was the new Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica.

“Lamborghini Philippines joins Automobili Lamborghini in celebrating the iconic brand’s 60th anniversary through ways that truly communicate our shared passion for visionary technologies and design,” said Roberto Coyiuto III, President and CEO of Lamborghini Philippines.

Organized by Lamborghini Philippines, the third Bull Run of the year saw a herd of Lamborghini Gallardo, Huracán, Urus, and Aventador models, including special and limited-edition variants, taking a thrilling drive in occasionally wet weather. The Lamborghini Philippines Club members started the trip from Petron Dasmariñas Village — a popular destination for supercar and sports car enthusiasts — and romped on the South Luzon Expressway before looping back to Metro Manila toward PGA Cars Studio.

Awaiting the group at PGA Cars Studio were six digital prints commissioned by Lamborghini Philippines for Automobili Lamborghini’s 60th anniversary. Made by artist Jaykee Evangelista, the pieces measure 23.4 by 33.1 inches each, and depict Lamborghini models that played significant roles in the brand’s 60-year story — the Miura, Countach, LM002, Urus, Aventador, and Revuelto.

Evangelista, whose car-centric creations have been featured in international events, transferred the digital renditions of his handiwork onto canvas, resulting in one-off pieces each bearing a certificate of authenticity. Some of the commemorative artworks are currently on display at Lamborghini Manila in Bonifacio Global City.

During the 60th anniversary celebrations, suitably displayed alongside the artworks was a dynamic, freestanding sculpture — the Huracán Tecnica. Adding to the event’s art theme was a Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán. As much a timepiece as it is a kinetic sculpture, the Excalibur Huracán adopts design codes from Lamborghini, including geometric patterns and other signature elements.

The Huracán Tecnica, developed for the road and the track, takes the Huracán STO’s 5.2-liter V10 engine that makes 630 horsepower and 565 Nm. The power output is sent to the rear wheels, and allows the super sports car to reach 100 km/h from a standstill in only 3.2 seconds.

Matched to the Huracán Tecnica’s rear-wheel drive configuration is rear-wheel steering. The systems are managed by torque vectoring, a modified Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS), and a model-specific suspension setup. The three drive modes — Strada, Sport, Corsa — provide highly distinct responses to any particular condition.

The cockpit of the Huracán Tecnica is fitted with height-adjustable sports seats, and a model-specific HMI interface featuring an instrument panel with less colors, making the large new “arc” info display easier to read. Like in the Huracán STO, the HMI includes connected telemetry and on-board diaries of destinations and track times.

Distinguishing the exterior of the Huracán Tecnica are a revised front end with more details and aerodynamic elements, more pronounced fenders, and a lightweight carbon fiber hood. A new front splitter directing air through the wheels contributes to improved downforce and cooling. Marking the rear are a new vertical rear glass window, a redesigned carbon fiber hood, a bumper with optimized air inlet and diffuser, and hexagonal exhaust pipes. The fixed rear wing produces 35 percent more downforce. Completing the Huracán Tecnica’s look are its 20-inch Damiso diamond-cut wheels.
